Last night I watched a YouTube video from Philip DeFranco, and the first story he covered was about a tool being used to digitally transplant celebrities faces into porn videos. Motherboard (NSFW), The Verge, and other tech journalists are reporting more on this “AI-assited” face swapping, if you’d like to read those accounts. However, I want […]

Engaging Students in Information Literacy – A Quick Post

By |January 31st, 2018|cte, EdTech, OU, Students|

Stack of newspaper that shows the World Business section header.
Life has been a bit hectic lately (more on that at the bottom of this post), but I wanted to share a project I’ve been developing. Ever since the election, I’ve felt like society (or maybe it’s just me) is having an identity crisis. Politics is more polarizing with the prevalence of a “party before […]

Inspiring More DoOO Power Users – A #Domains17 Perspective

By |June 8th, 2017|cte, Students|

Man repairing motor bike.
The very last conversation I had before departing #Domains17 was with Brian Lamb. We exchanged sentiments about how it’s more difficult to publish blog posts about our best experiences since we want to adequately represent our thoughts.

Empty table with two coffee mugs and a smartphone.
Now that I’ve journaled my experiences at #OLCInnovate I wanted to dive deeper into a couple things I feel were missing (to the extent I’d like to see) from #OLCInnovate.

I wanted to walkthrough one of my favorite Canvas integrations. Originally, I discovered this integration and used it in one of the early professional development courses I led for faculty transitioning (from D2L) to Canvas back in May 2016, which you can view here. My discovery of this integration was driven by the desire to replicate … Continue reading How To Integrate Websites Into Canvas
