I saw this on LinkedIn, and thought this was cool, new LMS/course creation tool. While it's a  free tool for now, I'm sure in time it might have a cost, since this is still in beta. But it looks like it'd be rather flexible. Time will tell!

How To Sell Without Selling [Infographic]

How To Sell Without Selling [Infographic] | Open Source learning | Scoop.it

That’s right, selling doesn’t necessarily require constant aggressive marketing. You don’t have to sell to sell. Setting up a strategy for passive sales is an increasingly important aspect of marketing, and it doesn’t annoy customers like more aggressive tactics do.

Stride recently released a neat infographic about the topic, actually. It covers most of the bases (you can find them below), but I can point out the important bits for you, because I’m super nice and generous.

Amazon will have access to so much data through firefly. The question in my mind is why limit yourself to Amazon's pricing when you can go to the internet and get all pricing. The other question in my mind, does Amazon plan on starting to price accorrding to market pricing since we will be supplying the comp data. They could price a dollar or two below the regional pricing, make more money but the customer loses out as the Amazon price would had been mch lower without the comp. info.

Interesting concept. Breaking down the traditional learning space and classrooms. There are no corners and the instructor teaches to the room as there is no formal structure to the classroom. No front or back of the room.

Interesting twist on  education degrees offererd at the U of Toronto. I like where they are headed however a system created by an elite group of learners might not be the best representation of the overall public education population. It would be interesting to put people in the group who do not value learning or do not do well in the traditional learning system to help establish plans that meet the needs of all learners.

Interesting different view on MOOCs. I am not sure I agree with the pov provided in the video. The video seems bent on showing the negative side of free education. I am sure there is no one who would disagree that in a class of 200,000 that there is potential to learn less and have greater drop out rate. In addition the assumption is made that the learner has gone to the course to learn everything in it. If it is free it affords me the opportunity to pick and choose my learning in a particular course.

sobrie01's insight:

This is an interesting article on how Universities are using simulcasting. I was pleased to read that the particpants liked the enviroment and felt it was a good compromise between the self paced on line courseware and the inconvenience they experienced in the past with a multicollege intergrated course offered on different campus. The application for this type of learning will allow for more people to learn, discuss and ask questions without having to incur the cost or the time to go to where the knowledge is housed. Not all courseware will work in this enviroment, courware that asks for application learning will need additional resources in the locations to allow for coaching and feedback to the learners who are applying the knowledge. Not impossible, just needs additional assistance.
