Apple's live events keep evolving, and I would love to be able to use their "live broadcasting" toolkit—essentially turning their website into a media-rich live blog of the event. Here's a screenshot of what today's Apple Watch-focused event looked like:   The key features of this mode of presentation are: Live video of the main presentation—which is …

Holiday Data Snapshot 

This is a short write-up about a month worth of pageviews on the Gottesman Libraries' Pressible site. There's a lot more one could do with the analytics, but I was just sharing a brief analysis.

Awards for online learning tools 

I was just perusing the great set of professional development resources our EdLab team created for the Teaching the Levees project, and I'm saddened that there are no awards for online learning resources.
