Thanks Cable. One can learn more about The Norwegian Digital Learning Arena NDLA via it’s abbreviated English language website _ http://om.ndla.no/about-ndla/ _ and Wikipedia _ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_Digital_Learning_Arena _ It’s good to know that “NDLA invites public tenders for digital learning resources which cover part or all of the learning targets in the relevant subjects. Publishing companies can submit tenders on an equal basis with other participants.”

The Federal Court of Canada has issued a massive damage award in the first major Canadian digital lock copyright ruling involving circumvention of technological protection measures.  The ruling, which is the first to conduct an extensive examination of the anti-circumvention rules established in 2012, adopts expansive interpretations to the digital lock protections and narrow views of the exceptions. The case confirms that Canada has tough anti-piracy laws with one of the most aggressive digital lock laws in the world and will fuel calls to re-examine the effectiveness of the anti-circumvention exceptions in the 2017 copyright review.

OER’s Road Ahead is Paved with Publisher Platforms | From the Bell Tower

OER’s Road Ahead is Paved with Publisher Platforms By Steven Bell

February 9, 2017

“Academic librarians are pleased with the progress they’ve made in leading their campuses to recognize the value of Open Educational Resources (OER). _Now publishers are responding to OER with new learning platforms. It may be time for a new strategy.” Steven Bell

[-]

These Platforms Can’t Be Ignored

It may be in our nature to rail against publisher platforms, and some librarians may believe it is their responsibility as social justice advocates to demonize publishers for co-opting and bastardizing OER, as some journal publishers have corrupted open access. Breaking commercial publishers’ total control of learning content with the OER sledgehammer was neither easy nor inexpensive—and despite modest success, commercial textbooks still dominate. According to open education advocate David Wiley, it took years of effort and millions of dollars to create and introduce the OER we have today. Perhaps most difficult to overcome was faculty’s own reliance on commercial textbooks, to convince them to adopt OER. As supplemental learning content has exponentially expanded—slides, test banks, self-grading quizzes, and more—convincing faculty to adopt OER has only gotten harder. As Wiley puts it:

An OER advocate that walks into a faculty office and argues for them to trade their current arrangement (which increases the speed with which students receive feedback and decreases the time faculty spend grading) for static OER is going to sound like they understand very little about the realities of teachers and students. And they’re not going to be a very successful advocate.

            __Hall Davidson, Senior Director, Global Learning Initiatives, Discovery Education who speaks frequently on the topics of VR and AR, said the results for teaching can be “astonishing.” He pointed to Lockheed Martin’s “Generation Beyond” initiative, powered by Discovery Ed, which takes classrooms on online field trips to learn about deep space exploration.”[-] “students could also be put into scenarios where they’re allowed to perform physical activities in virtual formats to begin building “muscle memory” that carries over into real life. That’s why the use of VR in sports and military training has become so popular.” __

            __Erin Beattie, BCcampus Digital Media Strategist – “BCcampus is a hub for new and innovative technologies in B.C. and development is our middle name, but much of what you don’t see is behind the curtain so we thought we’d push that back to reveal how we’ve managed to stay current in the ever-changing digital environment. Web development presents many barriers, opportunities and crafty solutions, and as we collectively grow, we need to stay up-to-date and nimble in order to stay innovative, but what exactly does that mean?

                Is customer experience really more important to marketers than sales? Multiple studies say yes.

                By Heidi Tolliver-Walker
                Published: February 23, 2017

                __”The importance of customer experience is highlighted in a survey just released by Accelent Consulting. The survey, released in January 2017, finds that the top three drivers of digital marketing agility (the ability to react quickly and effectively to customers and issues on the ground) are 1) enhancing the customer experience, 2) improving competitive position, and 3) increasing sales. (Yes, increasing sales came in third.) Furthermore, Accelent found that, among B2B customers, enhancing the customer experience is almost twice as important as increasing sales.” _

                  Even in a potentially unlimited digital marketplace, social networks, rankings, recommendation algorithms and the like focus people attentions on just a few items in the same way. The story of mass entertainment in the internet age is a paradox. Technology has given people too many choices, and then instantly relieved them of the need to make them.

                              Much of the time, business runs on bullshit. Especially when it comes to market research. How did we get here? How do we get out of here? My take on the challenge of keeping it real in a post-truth world.
