SmartPhones 2006

Cellphones are getting 'smarter' and faster (3G) this year. Sonyericssons next range all feature 3G connectivity (K610i, M600, W950) in a much smaller format - more like their previous non 3G phones, rather than the 'clunky' first gen versions of last year! Nokia are featuring WLAN & cellphone integration, with auto switching of networks - very cool, and the Windows Mobile smartphones are packing on the features too (at a relatively high price still). Palm is still dragging the chain on integrating WiFi with their Treos though. There's plenty of educational potential in these emerging communication devices for the harnessing!

Well, after a 16 month wait (just as well I didn't rely on them for my Thesis write-up!) I have received my first review for a Learning Object submitted to MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching).

Read it here.

While I only received a 3 out of 5 grade - my grade was actually 3.9 (they don't post points :-( ). I was let down by our poor server internet connection speed. Still, not bad for my first Learning Object - hopefully I get a better 'grading' for my other three Learning Objects (also submitted September 12 2004 - don't hold your breathe for an eta on the review!)

I did receive a 'nice' email to go with the release of the review though: "In summary, the MERLOT-Music Editorial Board wishes to acknowledge the valuable contributions Thomas Cochrane has made to advancing the teaching and learning within the discipline of music. This work is a model of the scholarship of teaching that can benefit faculty teaching and students learning around the world."
