Thanks to all who attended our 9 am presentation on March 6, 2013 at SXSWedu in Austin, TX, on Blending the University. We had a full house of 125 seats plus folks tucked along the back wall. We also had a robust conversation on the question of organizational challenges with blended learning design during the session and following throughout the day.
Please enjoy and share the presentation.
We’re getting busier and busier around educational technology change with many higher education organizations now. In this season of MOOCs (“massively open online courses”) and other education innovation announcements, I am focusing with many organizations on how to plan educational design with all of this output. How do we syndicate and create multiple use streams? How do we interact with publishing companies and other universities with all of this multimedia content? How do we collaborate and re-purpose what can otherwise be expensive limited use content?
This week, I’m heading to the O’Reilly Tools of Change conference to think about how multimedia distribution might fold into all this expanded production in higher education. At least one university we’re working with is rethinking their academic publishing arm — what can we do with all of this media being produced in MOOCs and blended course environments?
