Apple iPod vs. Diamond Rio MP3 Player. Twelve years ago yesterday, Steve Jobs and Apple introduced the first iPod using the amazing tagline: 1,000 songs in your pocket.

Face-to-face is for special occasions

Clive on Learning

What proportion of the music that you consume is at a live performance? And yet, there's a good possibility that those live events that you have attended - music, drama, sport or whatever - are among the most memorable occasions of your life. If you wanted to up the percentage of time you spent watching live music, drama or sport, it would come at a considerable price in terms of admission fees, travel, time and sheer adrenaline. Ask yourself. Chances are it's something between 0 and 10%. I'd be surprised if it's more than a few percent. You get the idea.

Tips for blends 9: Recognise that face-to-face learning still has an important part to play

Clive on Learning

Most learning does not require you to be face-to-face with others – just like you happily listen to music on your iPod, watch sport on TV or films at the cinema – but some does. However fast your bandwidth and however high-resolution your webcam, you cannot fully replicate a multi-sensory, face-to-face experience online – at least not for now. While face-to-face learning will increasingly become the special case rather than the default, it will still have a valuable role to play.

A book - is it a method or a medium?

Clive on Learning

No we are not, no more than using an iPod has turned us away from listening to music, i.e. on vinyl, tape or CD. Ebooks: the great rekindling of our love of reading , in last Sunday's Observer, brought home quite clearly to me how confused we have become between methods and media in our discussions about the pros and cons of e-book readers sch as the Kindle. In the context of design for learning, there is a clear distinction: Methods, the building blocks of our learning strategies, are essentially timeless. The methods that we use determine the effectiveness of our solutions.

4 Tips for Improved Video in eLearning

No, I’m not one of those weirdos who insists that music must be listened to in the format it was originally created for; I don’t have Mozart recorded on a wax cylinder.

Why Disruption and eLearning Matter to Higher Education

OpenSesame

For example, disruption occurred in the music industry when CDs replaced cassette tapes and iPods and mp3s replaced CDs. Perhaps brick-and-mortar institutions will always exist in some form, but it’s hard to imagine that future colleges and universities will be insulated from the same technologies that have radically changed the newspaper, music, and entertainment industries.

Making Sense of Research

Clark Quinn

A new iDevice is always cool, and while it’s not the first smart watch (nor was the iPhone the first smartphone, the iPad not the first tablet, nor the iPod the first music play), Apple has a way of making the experience compelling. A couple of weeks ago, I was riffing on sensors: how mobile devices are getting equipped with all sorts of new sensors and the potential for more and what they might bring. As part of that discussion was a brief mention of sensor nets, how aggregating all this data could be of interest too. So, smartphones have lots of sensors.

Do it yourself education

Apple has never allowed Flash on iOS devices (iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads), but these devices are way too popular for us to ignore their users. You can make a musical instrument out of the NYC subway route. No doubt you’ve heard at least a whisper about HTML5 over the last year. It’s a Flash-killer. It’s the only way to get multimedia on mobile devices. It’s not going to be ready for use until 2022. It’s going to save the world. There’s a lot of hype. As of January 2011, it’s considered a “living standard,” and browsers are continuing to change as the spec is revised.
