MOOCs and the Rest of 'Online'
Doug Lederman, Inside Higher Ed, October 12, 2012.

Coverage of a talk by Sebastian Thrun at a Sloan Consortium event. The article even linked to one of my posts! "In a nod to those who have complained that much of the recent news coverage has ignored an earlier iteration of massive online coursesstaged several years ago by Stephen Downes and George Siemens, Thrun himself referred to the "MOOC hype" and acknowledged that various people  had beaten him to the idea."

It is more than a little astonishing that it has taken this long for the iPad to allow a working 'file upload' button on websites. But with the release of the upgrade to iOS6, sites like Dropitto.me can now be used to send a file to someone with a dropbox account. This post is a great account of how teachers can use the service to facilitate students handing in assign,ments (videos, notes, whatever). See also Learning in Hand by Tony Vincent
