In case you didn’t hear, AT&T (iphone, among others) dropped the lawsuit against Verizon’s ad campaign (playing on the ” an app for that” by comparing the 3G coverage of AT&T to Verizon with a visual map). Read more at mashable and elsewhere.
I thought it was a really clever and hardhitting ad campaign, which is saying alot in the sea of ads we all see everyday.

Online learning environments hold great promise for expanding access to education for students with time and geographic challenges. Providing a supportive learning environment involves considering the needs of a wide range of learners and instructors, including those with physical and cognitive disabilities or technical limitations. The ability to do this can be somewhat challenged within the structure of a course management system such as Blackboard (WebCT) Vista, as full control of the web interface may not be possible. In response to student and faculty needs, educational developers from two institutions, the University of British Columbia and Utah State University have worked to determine how some of the issues may be addressed through instructional design, rigorous web design methodologies and some technical applications. Please join us as we share current and evolving practices in this important area of online.
