That lovely golden ball in the sky has been shining over Ballinamore for 6 days now … and we’re all a bit giddy.
Given the amount of rain we had in May … we need this dose of Vit D.
They have been amazing in literally giving me their organisation to trial the whole process … and eventual product … of SKIL2.
I’m now working with a Depaul SKIL2 Team of people from a project worker to a senior manager … and they are already adding enormous value to the design and implementation process … they’re a great group of intelligent and motivated people.
We are playing with the design that I have done for the online learning space … tweeking and adding features … while staying with my core design philosophy … beautiful + simple + affordable.
One of the activities I’ve designed for our meeting is the Elevator Pitch … where you communicate the core benefits and features of a product in 60 seconds … I’ve created a process that will be a lot of fun … and result in some cool insights.
One of the other things I do is show them different aspects of social media and how it can benefit them, their workers and their clients.
I found some great sites that provide free lectures from leading universities and speakers globally … in social media and WEB 2 terms they are known as … open courseware:
- Open Learn – free courses from Open Uni in UK
- Open Culture – some great talks and lectures on a range of topics
- Academic Earth – lectures from leading universities from their academic programmes. I watched a great vid on clinical psychology last night.
So … if you are interested in learning and don’t want to do formal courses … check those sites out.
Then I’ll have a SKIL2 process and product that non profits around the world can buy … and I’ve had some interest from small profit organisations as well.
OK … off I go to pack and get sorted … thanks to Maggie again for letting Coco stay with her pack while I’m away … she loves staying at your place.
I won’t be writing until Saturday so have a great weekend.
