No, it’s not Wednesday, but I just had to ask. Did you know that Tri-C is a member organization of the New Media Consortium (NMC)? So, what’s in it for you, you ask in return?
As an employee of Tri-C, you can set up your own NMC account, participate in conferences at reduced rates, read about their technology initiatives, especially their Second Life initiative–and you’ll just have to browse the site to see more.
You might know NMC from the annual Horizon Report (pdf download), produced in collaboration with EDUCAUSE. The Horizon Report, also available for download on the My Tri-C portal, looks at emerging technologies, evaluates their use in education, and predicts when they might become mainstream. Maybe we should have an annual Horizon Report workshop to discuss the future of emerging technologies at Tri-C.
