No, Really, This is What We Want Another short newsletter, but lots of great content (if I do say so myself). This links to PowerPoint slides from my presentation to the IMS Open Technical Forum in Vancouver today. Tomorrow (maybe) there will be a longer newsletter as I get caught up.

IMS Open Technical Forum Raw blog-like notes from today's IMS forum. This was - in my own estimation, not your ordinary IMS meeting, as members heard from a stellar set of Canadian presenters - people like Doug Macleod, Peter Hope, Norm Friesen, Paul Stacey, Chuck Hamilton, and many more - presenting what I think is a uniquely Canadian vision of learning and learning objects. Again, this is really raw note-like text - but it's hot off the press. By Stephen Doiwnes, Stephen's Web, February 20, 2003 [Refer][Research][Reflect]

All-UC Video Conference: MIT Open CourseWare Initiative I haven't had the chance to view this, since I'm creating this newsletter in the lobby of the Robson Square conference centre, but Fred Beshears from Berkeley thought I'd like to pass along this video recording of a conference between them at staff at the Open Courseware project at MIT. And yes, I would. By Various Authors, UC Berkeley, February 4, 2003 [Refer][Research][Reflect]

Bookmarklets This one has been around for a while, but Rod sent the link around and I think it's worth passing along. Bookmarklets are little bits of Javascript you insert instead of URLs in your bookmarks (or favorites) list. When you select the bookmarklet (just as you would select a page to view from bookmarks or favorites), the function is performed. By Various Authors, Undated [Refer][Research][Reflect]
