Encyclopaedia Britannica

Sean and I just finished an OSL demo for the good folks at Encyclopedia Britannica. We're moving forward now on mapping federated search via Webcenter, curriculum and content integration to UCM and adding their professional development services to train our teachers on the integrated system and create a virtual bundle for customers around the world. It's exciting to begin a partnership with one of the world's most trusted sources of information on every topic imaginable. Hardware, Software and Content Engineered to Work Together.

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.

IMS Learning Impact

I arrived in Long Beach last night around midnight after a 3 1/2 hour flight delay at Oakland because the plane we were about to fly got hit by lightening earlier in the day. A great way to start a week for sure. Anyways, headed for breakfast now with David from Sharestream. Then it's off to register and first afternoon of the IMS Learning Impact Conference. Graeme is also here from OSL DEV as we're evaluating K-12 uptake in IMS and whether specs in IMS Digital Services may provide the inter-operability framework guidelines for Oracle Student Learning. Our colleagues in higher ed at Oracle are leaders in the field. Linda will be on a panel or two talking about SAIP and IMS DLS. Graeme and I are keen to see updates at tool and content layers with the LTI spec. Here's a short video from Chuck Severance on LTI vision and basics.
