Me, Gavin Brockis and James Clay spoke this week on the subject of ‘Screencasting’ for the podcast series e-learning stuff podcast episode #66.
The Open University is looking to fill a temporary position, the description includes:
You will need to have: effective project management, scheduling, communication and staff management skills; solid media production experience, ideally in an academic discipline relevant to the University’s faculties of Arts, Education and Language Studies, or Social Sciences; sound experience in instructional design; and confidence in working in a changing environment.
After a freezing Bristol – London passport dash two weeks ago for a friend and blue fingers, I decided enough was enough.
So this weekend I had some affordable heated grips from bike it installed from the helpful duo of Kellaway motorcycles. I had considered the Honda set (£150 plus install, no thanks) and some Oxford options, but plumped for the in-store no frills bike it grips (£45).
First reports are positive and my only gripe is that the grips themselves feel a little rough and BMX like, but no doubt in a few miles I won’t know what the old grips felt like.
Once I get a long single trip out of the way (next week to London) then I will know if they will last the winter.
An interview with DJ Shadow’s Marketing manager, in which he details how they are trying to capitalise on mobile at events:
Geo-targeted push notifications on the iPhone app to fans at each venue, asking the fan to take photos of the show. This has been going AMAZINGLY.
I like that they are experimenting with new ideas such as geo-targeting, but also solving existing problems such as cash-only merch stalls now accepting mobile payments. This will all be normal in under ten years.
