Another "must-take" online course

Last update: Sunday 7/22/18
DLL Editor's note -- Regular readers of this blog know that from time to time I celebrate the excellence of some of the online courses that I myself have taken. The bizarre graphic on the left side of this intro appears in the opening frames of the 50 plus lecture videos in Professor Robert Ghrist's "Calculus: Single Variable" course (University of Pennsylvania via Coursera).

Confessions of an online course completer

Last update: Saturday 7/21/18

DLL Editor's note -- I am an online course (a/k/a MOOC) completer, one of the nerdy five percent. Better still, I am also a compulsive completer of multi-course certificate programs, one of the super nerdy one percent; but I wasn't always this way.

No TECH Updates or TECH Dozens magazine until August 2018

DLL Editor's note -- Summertime is usually slow news for colleges and universities, providers of #EdTech, info tech companies, hackers, and #DiversityInTech activists, but this summer seems to be a bit slower than usual. Therefore the DLL will suspend publication of its midweek "Tech Update" and its weekend "TECH Dozens" magazine until  Sunday 8/12/18. I apologize for any inconvenience this suspension will cause for any of our readers.
