How We're Doing
The first online session for our Indiana University students will run tomorrow afternoon (assuming we can get web conferencing to work—why is this still so hard in 2012?). Meanwhile, our other workshops are filling up quickly:
|Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute||March 26||17||40|
|Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory||March 28||40||40|
|University of Chicago||April 2||116||150|
|Utah State University||April 14||26||50|
|University College London||April 30||49||50|
|Michigan State University||May 7||7||40|
|Newcastle University||May 14||9||40|
|University of British Columbia||May 22||40||40|
and we are now discussing more workshops at other sites: Purdue, Oklahoma, Paris, Melbourne, and possibly ones in South America and Africa as well. If you'd like us to help organize one where you are, please get in touch.
Later: that's the good news. The news from other fronts is unfortunately not as upbeat. We're stymied issuing badges to people who've completed basic training while we wait for upgrades to the Open Badges site; videos of people solving simple problems have only been trickling in (we have half a dozen, we're aiming for 20-30); and we seem to be chasing our tail with regards to a web-native slideshow tool. I hope the end-of-month status report will be more positive.
