I'm about to argue for a serious charter change in the way we go about enacting our commitment to e-Learning. In fact, Sun has almost no commitment to e-Learning per se outside of one individual out of 35,000 and the real industry issues of standards, inter-operability, application creation, student-centric learning models and the like are nowhere near our pricelist. Sun is an infrastructure innovator and products company. (Curriki is the exception but no longer on our internal radar since there is no revenue associated with it and that's how we are all goaled)
So, instead of spending my time porting and tuning third party applications and trying to take their IP to market (with mixed if any real results since sales people are only ever committed to money and making goal regardless of any corporate brochure). I am submitting a plan to focus on Sun products and technologies which enable new digital media capture and delivery systems which complement, surround and may eventually replace the traditional course management system.
So, Here's the products I'll represent for EDU:
Sun Products and Technology for Digital Media in Education:
Community Partnerships: What's new?
Application Partners I will still support through events and links to product marketing effort above:
