Editor's Notes


  • Can an AI help you write a textbook?
    Couched this under OER.

  • Looks like Google, works like Netflix
    > Recommender engine
    Enter search text > Assess 10 results for accuracy and fit.
    “The loop” > the more times through it, the more interesting the results.

  • iFrames
    Export to txt or goole doc
    Portable
    Wikipedia license very generous for remixing of content.

  • What I do with pressbooks.

    “You might be thinking: not many faculty would want to do this.”

    “Frankenstein book-building tool”.

  • Our faculty research participants started discovering new things about their discipline they were able to repackage into lessons, case studies, activities, and homework assignments.

    We want to do more things like this.
    “As close the moment of learning as possible.”

  • Perhaps close with some sort of green field picture. Sure up narrative about online learning, leading into how these types of things impact us in H.Ed.
