Playing with Technology

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. ~Arthur C. Clarke


Well, there will be no official blog. Instead there will be a wiki for the event. I’ll probably post my thoughts here.

Today involved the dinner and generation of topics for discussion in the remaining days. I was interested to hear that Prof. Peter Havholm is going to have his class using the blog server for his course this semester. I also discovered that Oberlin is trying to get WordPress MU up and running on their campus. They also have Mediawiki running and are looking at Moodle. All very interesting and quite a bit of overlap with efforts at Wooster.

Mark Pearson is very interested in discussing how Earlham has Moodle set up and about changes or extensions that he could have some students work on in the near future. I am looking forward to discussing these issues with him tomorrow during the long break before dinner.
