Hello Team - I hope everyone in our group is learning and continuing to push the button in the field of emerging technology and education.  Through-out 2013, I'll be releasing a monthly newsletter on Emerging Technology, Web 2.0 tools, online teaching, and other concepts related to technology in the field of education.  The first edition is hot off the press: adding video introductions to online courses using YouTube - how-to guides for Blackboard or Edvance 360, MOOC's, and the New Media Consortium yearly report which was released last week.  Feel free to share this resource with your team members.
