Ounces matter: Mashing up business travel and minimalist camping
DECEMBER 9, 2015
It rolls up into one of its own pockets and is about the size of a pack of cards. You’ll feel like a magician when pulling this out in public and packing it up. In 2015, I traveled roughly ten weeks for work and went on some solo backpacking camping trips for pleasure and sanity. Backpacking alone was new to me and it really turned me on to minimalist camping where ounces matter. I missed having my husband/manservant lugging all the big, heavy stuff about 3 miles into my first hike. I had no idea! So selfish! As a result, I dropped about a third of the weight of the pack.
Sausages and mash(up)
Learning with e's
OCTOBER 13, 2007
For their project, one of the groups of bright young things has come up with an idea they have called Wiki ++. it is an extended open architecture in which several versions of a wiki page exist simultaneously, so there is potential for endless mash-up, ? I'm sat here at the University of Applied Social Sciences , in Darmstadt, Germany, (land of the sausage - we sampled some great ones last night!) surrounded by bright young things - around 30 post-graduate students from Germany, Poland, UK, Ireland and Latvia, all studying at Masters or PhD level in computer science.

Eduverse Foundation Presentation
SEPTEMBER 23, 2008
This morning, I had a great time giving a presentation to a group over in the UK via a mash up of Skype and Second Life. I presented to the Eduverse Foundation Symposium. Of course I would have liked to have been there in person but, since it was a virtual world conference, I figured that a virtual presentation made a lot of sense and is less time consuming.

Remix culture and education
Learning with e's
JUNE 22, 2016
Sometimes several works are combined or 'mashed up' to create new versions. In my last blog post I illustrated a new model of digital literacies in the context of age of remix. Since then, several have asked me what I mean by remix culture, and how it applies to education. Remixing is the act of taking previously created works or artefacts and adapting them in some way.

More about Todd here: [link] Below are excerpts from the interview: What are some of the key eLearning trends that you think would surface, or pick up, in 2016? We’re excited about the possibilities of merging curation as a learning designer activity mashed up with the production of rich multimedia e-books that are, at best, learning program delivery tools, and at least job aids.

Maslow, technology and learning
Learning with e's
JANUARY 16, 2017
I love a good mash-up. But a mash-up takes several ideas, formats or sources and places them together in a new form, to say something new. How much more could we say about the uses of technology when we place them up against a pre-digital age theory such as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs model? It's a digital age version of synthesis. That's why I like it.

Four ideas dominate: informal learning, social learning, mobile learning, and games-based learning.

In response to: Why “Talk” Culture Ruins Everything
APRIL 30, 2010
And the scary part of "cherry picking" ideas and creating mash-ups from these were driven home once again. de-contextualize snippets of conversations, texts, dialogues heard, reassemble the various bits and pieces, add our thoughts and pass on the new "mash-up" till it has lost all resemblance to the source. We are also wired to listen to and pick up those bits and pieces that are in synch with our ideas. And from this emerges our personal mash-ups of all we see, hear, read, feel, experience… There are two sides to this: 1. We do it all the time.in
Online Training: What's Up With MOOCs?
I Came, I Saw, I Learned
FEBRUARY 21, 2013
I thought it might be useful to bring you a concise shakedown on what's up with all these MOOCs. Some MOOCs are set up to steer students to paid follow-up courses to receive professional certificates: eCornell Offers a MOOC that Steers Students to a Paid Follow-Up. but instead an industry led by venture capitalists that is neither free nor innovative: Size Isn't Everything: For academe's future, think mash-ups not MOOC's. This week I want to focus on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Well, maybe not. Does it matter?

If you are seeking a system that is a mash-up of useful business tools with a strong LMS, than this is a system to examine. Their ideal market honestly is education, but they as many other VLPs have realized that corporate is a delicacy that cannot be passed up. Well, that’s good because I just made it up.
