Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Tony Karrer

Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome." What I fear is that we are secretly not committed to the shift in the way we meet. Our webinars have been successful by our standards and for the most part, we've been early adopters of the technology. I personally often adopt whatever is most easily available.

Meeting unreasonable needs

Clark Quinn

Of course, they got buy-in to do so, but you might try to work with your early adopters and help them become the local resources. I was contacted yesterday by a relatively new ID person, who was in a tough spot. This person understood the principles of Tony Karrer’s “ Before You Ask &# post, as the situation was well laid out. Some help was asked for (clearly no expectation other than, perhaps, a thoughtful reply; the circumstances were quite clear).


Adaptation: The Key to Become a Socially Integrated Enterprise

PHI Meets PST: A PST Framework for Personal Health Information

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Manitoba has a patient-focus in its preamble - I'd love to see NB adopt that. Summary of a talk by David A. Townsend (Professor of Law, UNB) at the IFIPTMA Conference in Moncton. Legislation tends to form in a pyramid state, with the statute at the top, with subordinate legislation (standards, rules, orders). They both have the status of law. Now I'm going to talk about the normativity, the values in Personal Health Information (PHI). PHI, imbued with PST values - what would it look like?

Moving from openness advocacy to research

George Siemens

I’ve been involved in numerous faculty/leadership meetings with different universities and colleges over the past year and openness has become one of those concepts that everyone agrees with, supports, and promotes. OER align better with faculty’s top adoption priorities than traditional materials do, and the majority of current non-users will try OER between now and 2017. But, overall, advocacy has driven adoption of openness (OER, MOOCs, open pedagogy, etc).
