by elearnadmin
Hmmm… Anyhoo, as you’ll know if you’re a regular reader of the E-Learning Curve Blog, I do more than just author this modest contribution to life online: this site links to my e-learning consultancy website (Michael Hanley Consulting), and to my two podcast services; the E-Learning Curve Podcast is (unsurprisingly) about technology in education, and the Other One, which is about subjects that interest me but are not e-learning-related (but are probably educational). Some of the topics I’ve covered include the Golden Age of Aviation, music, and architecture, to name but a few. I’m delighted – and very, very honoured [...]

A for-profit social enterprise model for e-learning

by elearnadmin
As you’ll know if you’re a regular reader of the E-Learning Curve Blog I’m always pleased to highlight e-learning initiatives and innovations from Ireland particularly now, when Ireland is viewed as the “sick man of Europe” because of our financial woes. However, government incompetence in the management of the economy aside, Ireland has a vibrant technology and knowledge-based industrial economy. We excel in e-learning – I guess most people in the industry have heard of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), SmartForce and Electric Paper, for example. These large companies notwithstanding, there are over fifty ‘other’ e-learning development houses in the country. [...]

by elearnadmin
Podcast - download here. When you think of the best way to learn about the newest technology, what do you think of?

Remote Control Robots Used to Teach Language Skills

by elearnadmin
There’s a shortage of English teachers in South Korea. There are, however, many English teachers in the Philipines. To solve this supply and demand challenge, the South Korean government has created remote control robots that are operated by teachers in the Philipines. As an engineering achievement, they are a feat. Brightly colored and shaped like penguins, the roughly three-foot-tall robots can roll around, recognize speech, and display facial expressions as they broadcast audio. They are designed to help with pronunciation, among other tasks. Mun Sang Kim, director of the institute’s Center for Intelligent Robotics, believes robots produce a more engaging [...]
