While I was in Barcelona this past October to co-present with Brian Lamb at the Open University of Catalonia’s (UOC) “Pushing the Boundaries of Higher Ed” symposium (presentation video above), they decided to subject themselves to my opinionated responses to a series of questions regarding the state of ed-tech. I tried avoid any topics involving predictions given I am no futurist, but rather a charismatic cult leader and highly successful edupreneur 🙂
But enough about me, I’d like to thank Marcelo Maina of UOC’s EDUL@B for his masterful work at both conducting and editing the numerous responses to the various questions. I was just one of many folks he was tasked with interviewing, and I know from personal experience the chore of recording, editing, and publishing such things is no small feat—and to turn it around so quickly is truly impressive.
As for the videos, they are all a manageable 3-4 minutes responses to a posed question, and I like them because they allowed me to discuss everything from the greatest course ever taught (i.e. ds106), the vision behind a personal API, the good old days of blogs and wikis, the limits of open as in textbooks, and more. Not sure there is much cohesion to it given I am all over the place as usual, but the videos are a perfect for for the “I love me wall” that is the bava!
