  1. Audrey Watters gives a fantastic breakdown of the history and the pivot of Venture Capital MOOCs away from Education For All to Job Training for the Rich. Ideal students only need apply. But ideal students would succeed anywhere. Because they're ideal. Privelege is awesome.

  3. George Veletsianos, an associate professor at British Columbia’s Royal Roads University who studies education technology, thinks that course trailers can empower scholars to reach new and wider audiences. The most successful videos are viewed by a few thousand people online — minuscule figures compared with viral YouTube fodder, but impressive for courses that may enroll only a few dozen students. Richard Hunt’s video has almost 100 views on YouTube so far. "To some degree, I’m not convinced people are going to watch it," Mr. Hunt says, but he’s still glad students can. "If they want the engagement, it’s there."

    Videos designed for outside audiences might also have an impact within the classroom, says Mr. Veletsianos. "Once we consider a different medium, we might change the way we do things. We might expand our tool kit of teaching."

  6. Cloud computing can and does mean different things to different people. The common
    characteristics most interpretations share are on-demand scalability of highly available and
    reliable pooled computing resources, secure access to metered services from nearly anywhere,
    and displacement of data and services from inside to outside the organization. While aspects of
    these characteristics have been realized to a certain extent, cloud computing remains a work in
    progress. This publication provides an overview of the security and privacy challenges pertinent
    to public cloud computing and points out considerations organizations should take when
    outsourcing data, applications, and infrastructure to a public cloud environment.
