Academic Values and the Lure of Profit

Academic Values and the Lure of Profit
Though the one paragraph in this article about online learning looks like it was added a an afterthought, the author's main point remains valid and applicable here as well. Universities' efforts to commercialize, argues the author, through such means as sports teams and research patents, have generally been unsuccessful. More...

Is There a Future for Online Ed?

Power Point Conversion Shoot-Out
I don't know why people would want to convert PowerPoint slides to e-learning, but about a dozen products accomplish (more or less) the task, and they were recently subjected to a Brandon Hall shootout. This page describes the contest and - best of all - links to the conversions produced by some of the products so you can see the results for yourself.
