In this episode of #AskLeX, I’m talking to Josh Humphries who is the Founder and CEO of Guroo Producer. I met Josh at an IDeL Meetup where he was [...]

2017-08-18T23:26:04+00:00

Author: Karen Moloney Yes, it’s true. According to the New York Times, Kahooting is actually a word! But what does it mean? I found out a few weeks ago when I attended a presentation on BYODD (Bring Your Own Designated Device) at my son’s school.

2017-08-18T23:26:05+00:00

Author: Karen Moloney I’m finding it more and more interesting how much the disciplines of marketing and learning are starting to intersect.

The Risky Relationship Between Curation and Copyright

2017-08-18T23:26:05+00:00

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing the Australian Copyright Council's Executive Director, Fiona Phillips, for our next Immersion virtual summit: Curation Debunked.
