FDP will eine „European Digital University“

Wie lässt sich die Idee einer nationalen Weiterbildungs-Plattform („MILLA“) toppen? Vielleicht durch den Ruf nach einer „European Digital University“? Das Projekt, so lese ich, soll bei der Europäischen Kommission bereits auf dem Tisch liegen. Deutschland zögert. Die FDP drängt. Was die Plattform leisten soll, ist wohl noch unklar: Eine zentrale Anlaufstelle für Online-Lernangebote bieten? Einen grenzüberschreitenden Austausch von Studierendendaten ermöglichen? Nur die (naheliegenden) Stichworte „Big Data“ und „Künstliche Intelligenz“ fallen nicht. Noch nicht. Ich bin geneigt, die Nachricht unter „Vermischtes“ abzulegen.

This article will explain an important reason why changing thinking and behavior is so difficult. This post was first published on eLearning Industry.

Keep getting actionscript keywords message

I have tricked every “trick” or workaround that I have come across, but when I try to use Web Object to embed a YouTube video, I keep receiving the message (when I preview) “Swf compilation failed.  Please verify if any of the actionscript keywords is used as user variable name.”

I have also tried the YouTube widget and checked HTML5 Tracker.

Do not know what to do here…I do not yet know enough about variables to know how to even approach the problem.

Thank you,
