March Motivation Modification: TED Talk by Daphne Koller on Lessons from Online Education

March 2015...I certainly didn't expect to be gone for so long after declaring that my eLearning 4 Life blog was back! However, life happened, with its demands and other obligations that took priority over blogging.

But now, in this month of my birthday, I am working on modifying certain aspects of my life and reigniting my motivation to blog as a means to share my passion for ongoing, lifelong learning.


Blogging, studying, and drinking coffee...seem to go together!

So to help me revive this blog and get some new content here, I'm following some writing prompts from a group I belong to on Facebook called the Article Writing Challenge. The organizer, Bonnie Gean, offered this as an idea for a blogging schedule, and since it worked well on another blog, I thought I would follow it here:

Sunday: Video Blog
Monday: Product Review
Tuesday: Top 10 List
Wednesday: Guest Blog Post
Thursday: Infographic
Friday: Three Things I Completed Today
Saturday: Step-by-Step Tutorial
  

AND since today is Sunday (or it was when I started this post), I thought I would share this TED Talk by Daphne Koller entitled "What We're Learning from Online Education." 

Here is the description: Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn.




So what do you think of her ideas? Do you appreciate the opportunity to take free courses?
