Happy not-2020 anymore! In celebration of the slightly-less-awfulness, we are restarting Blursday Socials with a bang. You may have been following my blog post series on the collaboration between Carnegie Mellon University’s OLI group and ASU’s ETX group on a next-generation courseware platform. (It’s actually a lot more than that, but that’s a good place to start in terms of unpacking what it really is.)
Whenever a whizzy project or collaboration gets announced, the first question that everybody asks is, “Is this a thing?” As in, how real is this, really? And then the next question is, “To the degree that this is a thing, what kind of thing is it?” We will definitely answer the first question and get a start on the second one.
Leading up this conversation with me will be two good friends. From the OLI side is Simon Initiative Executive Director, OLI Director, and connoisseur of fine bourbon Norman Bier.
From the ETX side, we have ETX Director, ASU President’s Professor, and explorer of habitable worlds Ariel Anbar.
You’ve got questions? We’ve got (some) answers.
This session is scheduled for this Blursday, 2/4 at 4 PM ET. Dress code is COVID-casual. This will be an informative social event, not a broadcast.
