Had a cool meeting today with Keith, who works for the Academy. Keith is very excited about making the Academy site a dynamic place where students can interact and learn. We share similar views on the educational possibilites of well-designed web sites and the value of distance education in general. We’re making plans to upgrade the site by adding interactive quizes, a phorum, and an easy mechanism for students to upload their work online so that their instructors can grade it at a distance.
To this end, I just downloaded phorum, but I’ll save installing it for tomorow. All in all, it’s been a fine day….
