Sharestream

We launched our project in ISV-engineering with Sharestream yesterday to port and tune version 5.0 of their Digital Media Management and Delivery platform to support OID, UCM, Weblogic, DB as well as new sizing for SPARC/Solaris hardware appliances. They are a fast moving start-up we began working with at Sun with early success in higher education connecting digital media services with LMS/CMS systems and are now moving into new market opportunities in healthcare and federal institutions looking for safe, secure end-to-end digital media capture and delivery for online learning and training environments.

Flipping the Classroom

Another great TED talk this time by Kahn Academy's Salman Kahn on their model to use video to re-invent education. I spoke with the good folks at Kahn last week about collaborating with us at Quest to Learn to see if students and teachers would benefit from using the Kahn model for lectures and competency training as homework and the Q2L model to really engage students in the classroom  using game-based learning, digital tools and powered by OSL to solve real-world problems and apply what the kids learned online. Well, we are on our way to find out just what that kind of blended learning might actually look like. Stay tuned.

Next Up, Ed Tech 2011


After a week in Long Beach with the good folks at the IMS Learning Impact despite the rain. Highlights included Gerry's update on Merlot and the Affordable Learning Solutions program they have put in place for OER resources to save student's money. Other cool stuff on Common Cartride at the GLRC and the semantic web, Gates Foundation on digital learners and the Florida Virtual School. Of course the best part was seeing Linda's killer demo of SAIP with Blackboard and Marc's talk on the print-to-digital revolution in libraries and the power of Oracle UCM to get help get there. Next up Monday morning and the SIIA Ed Tech Forum fortunately taking place a BART ride away.
