Last week I was promoted from senior program manager for the apps program for MindTap (called MindApps, aptly enough) to senior program manager for all of MindTap. In the short run, this means that my light blogging schedule will continue for a while as I adjust to my new position—probably at least through the end of the summer. But if you can be a little patient, I expect to have lots to say, as I am learning a ton and rethinking a lot of my positions about the future of educational technology.
I am very, very excited about MindTap, not only because I think it’s a great product in and of itself, but also because it is a sign that we are finally breaking the log jam that has been impeding large-scale innovation in educational technology for the past decade. I’ll be talking about this (and demonstrating MindTap) in my closing keynote at the Moodle Moot next week in California and expect to have a screencast demo of MindTap posted here to e-Literate relatively soon afterward.
