Note to the Community
December 15, 2010 by Scott Finkeldei
As always, the Axio Quarterly wants to assist you with these processes. This issue provides some key wrap-ups from the 2010 Axio Conference.
On Page 4, read how an attendee was inspired by the keynote speech, “From Knowledgable to Knowledge-able in a Digital World: What’s at stake”, from Michael Wesch.
Also, check out the recap of the yearly Open Forum on Page 9. The annual Open Forum is where we have a great discussion among attendees and the Axio development team about what is good and bad with Axio and what we can do differently. As always, this was enlivening and enlightening.
Brian Lindshield’s presentation on Flexbooks (Page 7) and an article written by Axio community member Kurt Gartner about getting started with videoconferencing (Page 10) are also covered in this issue.
Be sure to read the profile one of our most innovative and constructive users, Sue Williams. If you missed any of the sessions, or just want to refresh your memory, the Axio Conference website, located at axioconference.org has videos of all the presentations.
Looking toward our upcoming academic term and our courses, the Tips and Tricks section (Page 2) may provide you with some great tools to plan your work. It details what to look for in assignment submission reports and much more.
On Page 3, our video expert, Artur Gregorian, explains how to capture good video for whatever your audience and delivery method.
Also looking to the future, this is the last paper version of the Axio Quarterly. We are going all electronic with future issues, although you will be able to still get printable PDFs of each issue if needed.
If you have an idea for an article for the Axio Quarterly, we are willing to listen. Contact us at email@example.com to suggest a topic or volunteer to write an article.
As always, thanks for your active participation in the Axio Community in 2010; it was a great year! The Axio team wishes you a joyous holiday season and a great new year. See you in 2011!
