Ikea's Augmented Reality Catalog Will Let You Peek Inside Furniture | Gadget Lab Ikea’s new app does not come with an allen wrench. Photo: Ikea Ikea prints 211 million copies of its product catalog every year. “A lot digital stuff becomes very interesting when you mash it up with the tangible items of the real world,” said Andreas Dahlqvist, Global Deputy Chief Creative Officer of McCann, the creative agency behind the catalog. Augmented reality features will roll out in the 2013 edition of the print catalog, which will arrive in customers’ mailboxes later this month. When you wave your smartphone over pages with digital content, a variety of features appear. In early 2011, Ikea enlisted McCann to help bridge the gap between paper and digital. Instead, Ikea decided to pepper the catalog with a digital layer — a much more intriguing proposition than scrapping print entirely, and going straight to mobile. No word on if any of the videos instruct customers on how to prepare the company’s famous Swedish meatballs.
How to Take the Risks out of the Social Learning Aspects of Online Training Social learning—or learning with and from others (with or without social media technology)—is a force to be reckoned with. But how do you entice your online training learners to participate to take learning to a higher level, and make it participatory and social?

Building Trust with Your Learners Absolutely no bullying allowed. Anonymity has its downfalls.

501(c)(3)U - The Online University for Nonprofits How Open Educational Resources Can Increase Opportunites for Everyone Richard Rowe Let me begin by suggesting a different question than “ Do Open Educational Resources actually increase the digital divide? ” Instead, let me ask: How can OERs be used to reduce the digital divide? Or more importantly, how can OERs be used to increase the opportunities for everyone to maximize their potential? Let’s begin by stipulating that the deep divides that are increasing today throughout the world, between the “have’s and have not’s”, create dangerous instabilities that impact all of us. However OERs require a delivery system and an environment that enables people to take advantage of them. To be effective, an educational system must involve a comprehensive, systemic approach.
