    [Providers] A BETTr type of conference?
    Sophisticated LMS inside the website provides lots of statistics for teachers - to the learner the experience is no different to logging in to any other website (DR - LMSy CMS origins are NOT on display here!) It's an interesting time to be involved with education in the UK. The government is hacking wildly at the structures that have been familiar for so long; results from UK schools seem to be slipping sharply; the industrial education model looks to be broken. And where can we find solutions to these problems, to bring education in this country back on track? What are universities?

    [Providers] Enter the 3D virtual conference room
    According to Elaine, “VirtualU provides an immersive, interactive, 3-dimensional experience that replicates its real-life counterpart in a realistic online environment. The issue for me is whether the 3D environment provides a more compelling experience than you can obtain from simple 2D web conferencing. Thanks to Eliane Alhadeff from the Future-making Serious Games blog for bringing Digitell’s VirtualU to my attention. Elaine suggests this just might represent the future of conferencing. Obviously only time will tell.

    Establishing the consistent use of a standard can help build a powerful, and valuable, ecosystem.  I can wish that the providers in the US would work and play together a little bit more! There may be better alternatives, but getting consistently behind one standard makes the investment amortize effectively. I’m pleased to see that mLearning is taking off, and had fun sharing some of the models that I think provide leverage to rally take advantage. I’ve had the fortune to be here in China speaking on mlearning. But they’re all phones, I seem to see few tablets.

    [Providers] Things to Remember When Designing Courses for iPads
    Smartphones may not be able to provide users with as rich a multimedia experience or computational capabilities as a tablet. If statistical figures are to be believed, the sale of tablets is going to be ever-increasing. If you look at iPads in particular in the US alone, an estimated 85 million people will be using the tablet by 2016. The obvious answer is screen size, and thus interactivity. For the same reason that you might prefer to play a strategy based game on an iPad instead of a smartphone, an employee might like to view a presentation on an iPad too. Embed interactivity.
