This Dummy is No Dummy

Kapp Notes

When most training and education developers think of simulations, they think of online simulations or if you talk to an airline pilot she might mention a flight simulator. Sounds like they need some practice. Enter medical mannequins also known as patient simulators. These gadgets are the medical equivalent of flight simulators. One such medical mannequin is named iStan.

I Report Bugs - Do You?

Tony Karrer

I received an email telling me that my blog was having problems (showing code all over the page). I quickly checked and didn't see a problem and sent an email back. The response I received was: Your blog looks fine now. Sorry for wasting your time. What a misconception. The person had taken the time to report a possible bug on my site. In my mind they are doing me a huge favor. Most of the time I report bugs. And this extends beyond the online world. If I'm at a restaurant, I will try to tell the manager about an issue - most of the time not to fix it, just to make them aware. is this the norm?

You ask for some online games.I give you the FBI.

Ok, so one of my favorite quotes in Die Hard is when Hans and Theo are trying to get into the vault and Theo is not sure how they are going to get past a certain lock and then, the FBI agents (Johnson and Johnson)cut the power circuits thus opening the vault and Hans says "The circuits which cannnot be cut locally are cut automatically in response to a terrorist attack.

My twitter status just changed. Sue Waters - who I met through the posts: Reframing Conference Social Tool Participatio and Social Conference Tools - Expect Poor Results yesterday walked me through what she had done at a couple of conferences. See her page: mlearn2007 by others and mlearn2007 my notes. Along the way, she convinced me that Twitter was something that I should stop resisting. She did this by sending a tweet out that asked how Twitter helped people with their personal learning. She quickly got back: dmcordell @dswaters Hi, Sue. I'm the only LMS in a rural district.

Today the message below was sent from EDEN to all delegates, and it looks very appetising.
