HowToCollege

In March, I had the opportunity to host the IndieEdTech gathering with Eddie Maloney of Georgetown and Kristen Eschelman at her place at Davidson College. As I wrote then, the gathering was focused on a design sprint in small teams around personal APIs. Led by the nudging of Audrey Watters, my team’s idea focused around… Continue reading

Sticking a Fork in the LMS

I had a moment of panic over the weekend. I was expecting to teach my summer course from June 14 to Aug 5.

A Vinyl API of One’s Own
