I recently attended a seminar on the future of digital media on TVs, PCs, and Cell Phones. The seminar dealt with how these and other digital delivery platforms might be used in combination to reach audiences for various purposes. The presenter slides are now available for this seminar on Digital Destiny: Combining the Three Screen Experience for Maximum Customer Engagement. I have also attached my notes from the seminar.
The idea of working across multiple digital platforms to have an impact on an audience ...
Here is a short Edit Jam video/commercial. It's intended to get people excited about the past event and future events. Props to Josh Anderson for the beats!
I hope you enjoy this installment of the EdLab Edit Jam videos. It is meant to demonstrate all of the wonderful experiences my Digital Design club students had at the event. Joachim and I plan on using these videos to plug the upcoming TC channel not only on the blog, but on the iTunes channel on PK, Cool Hunting Video, and Apple's website, among others. Watch out for Joachim's installment and let us know what you think!
I have always thought that an automatic voice activated translator would be a great tool to communicate with other languages. These types of translation applications have been around for several years, but for the most part little development has been made to expand their abilities –this is changing.
The military is currently using a hands free system that allows the user to continue daily activities while speaking through a Voice Response Translator. The company Integrated Wave Technologies has developed the
Just in case you were sleeping well, new evidence of underground markets for computer exploits are cropping up. Zero-day exploits (traditionally referring to exploits which arise the same day a vulnerability is detected, though now often used to describe tools which exploit unaddressed vulnerabilities), are being sold for tens of thousands of dollars. Even worse: your credit card with a valid PIN only costs $500, though the program to ...
I've reviewed the feedback from our 12/6 channel event, and made some lists. Overall, there are a lot of ideas for creating content for the channel, as well as ideas about how to publish it on the web. Though we eventually publish to other formats (still thinking of the cell phone), it was agreed upon that creating a website was a good first step.
We will likely seed a new website with material we've already put on iTunes. But there will continue to be new and competing production opportunities, so we should think about specific media that may make for attractive content. Here are some of your ideas from the discussion (video is prominent, but we do not have to limit ourselves to video):

This year's theme basically focused on — “We have been ‘using' eLearning for over a decade - so now what?
And, the 'what' was the main discussion last week. I come back with a plethora of information, research initiatives, products and materials that are being promoted on a global level - so much information that I'm still uploading to the Teaching and Learning Network blog.
For those of you that sent me topic request, I have information and web links that I think might be of interest to you.
As we consider strategies for launching a new TC channel/network/etc. it might be useful to examine Time Warner's Pathfinder project, a site designed to bring together all of the assets of Time Warner in its pre-AOL days and present them online. Take a look at the Pathfinder Museum.
