What Is eLearning Waiting For?
NOVEMBER 11, 2011
Apple has revolutionized consumer devices - not just through great hardware design but through forward thinking about the ways consumers find, select, purchase and use content with their devices. While Apple is dominant in music, web content and phones, so far, TV has resisted the Apple golden touch. Right Content Revolution eLearning Solutions
AUGUST 24, 2011
When I was six years-old, I learned BASIC on my Apple II+ and I learned to program with High-resolution graphics because I wanted to make Yoda and ET move across the screen. Both of us were on Apple II+. We learned on an Apple. This is me saying it’s like the end of The Beatles. I can appreciate John Lennon and how incredible his music is, but it’s not the same as it was for my mom who could hang with baited breath as a teenager waiting for a new album to drop and listen with awe at what new wonders awaited at the first listen.
Changing the Book game
JANUARY 20, 2012
I was boarding a plane away from home as Apple’s announcement was happening, so I haven’t had the chance to dig into the details as I normally would, but just the news itself shows Apple is taking on yet another industry. What Apple did to the music industry is a closer analogy to what is happening here than what they did to the phone industry, however. As Apple recreated the business of music publishing, they’re similarly shifting textbook publishing. Apple, once again making life fun. That may change, however.
Making Sense of Research
MARCH 17, 2015
The context was the ‘spring forward’ event Apple held where they announced their new products. The most anticipated one was the Apple Watch (which was part of the driving behind my post on wearables ), the new iConnected device for your wrist. What Apple has done is to focus specifically on health data from their HealthKit, and partner with research hospitals. And low and behold, a massive example was revealed last week. The announcement was ResearchKit , and it’s about sensor nets. So, smartphones have lots of sensors. And the watch will have more.

iPad for eLearning
MARCH 18, 2011
iPad was not created for supporting eLearning and (or) mLearning instead it was created as a media device that supports books, magazines, newspapers, games, music, video and web access.

Hours of Glower: The Increasing Obsolescence of the Metric of Training Hours
JUNE 8, 2016
Back in ancient times when music came on CD (remember that, kids?), the trend was to stuff as much music as possible onto a single, 74-minute disc. As the forward march of technology expanded the quantity of how music could be stored on playable media (vinyl LPs could handle about 45 minutes), people adapted with it and used this flexibility, for better or worse. There’s no way to truly compare the two when technology changes the yardstick, and “longer” has never been remotely synonymous with “better” in this regard. And as a result, could have higher indirect costs?)

Apple casts a long shadow across the path of book publishers.
JANUARY 11, 2010
Now that most fearsome protagonist Apple is stirring up the overcrowded eReader market, and book publishers are expressing concern. Will Apple transform and dominate the market for electronic print in the same way as it did with electronic music? I remember the Wimbledon men’s singles final of 1967. John Newcombe won. It was one of the most comprehensive thrashings of all time. But it was not the beating of Wilhelm Bungert that made the match so memorable. It was the very first time I watched television in colour. Now I see that 2010 is to be the year of colour.
