Commentary and such, plus slides, from Jim Groom on the MOOC Research Initiative conference attended by a large number of creators in Arlington, Texas. A lot happened in the short time I was there (and although I had to leave a day early I feel like I escape Texas's icy clutch just in time). George Siemens announced he is leaving Athabasca University and joining the University of Texas at Arlington (Athabasca University has basically imploded; it's really sad to see). I announced our new Learning and Performance Support Systems program. I rode a steer. Here are the discussion summaries from the groups (the workshop was a series of discussions, not a series of speeches - so much nicer). And then we had an ice storm (pictured above from my hotel window) just to remind everybody of Canada.
