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.

IFCU

A fun call this morning and amazing new opportunity with the Independent Film Channel and their plans to build an on-line University (IFCU) to support instruction and mentorship community for indie film makers and students. IFC currently reaches 56 million homes through cable and a few million web hits per month. The combination of the IFCU content creator community and multi-platform/multi-channel technology platform and reach by Sun in educational institutions and film schools looks like an interesting project alliance is emerging quickly. Plans are set for a meeting connections in both Shanghai in April and the Digital Hollywood Spring event in LA. So if you've got kids, and they already have their paws on your video camera and Mac, there may be a neat new opportunity for them coming soon to a global theater near everyone soon.
