Using the Facebook group as a learning management system

Using the Facebook group as a learning management system | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it

The Facebook group has the potential to be used as an LMS. It has pedagogical, social and technological affordances, which allow putting up announcements, sharing ideas and resources, and implementing online discussions. Using the Facebook group as an LMS, however, has certain constraints. It does not support other format files to be uploaded directly, and the discussion is not organized in a meaningful structure.

iPads in the Office: What Are They Really Good For?

iPads in the Office: What Are They Really Good For? | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it
"...Let’s face it. Unless you’re Björk (who created an album on and for the iPad), browsing and email are the only categories Jobs mentioned that mean much to business people. And for all their advantages, tablets have some pretty big downsides in the office.

Yet people keep insisting on bringing the things to work and trying to hook them up to office networks, often driving IT managers nuts with support questions and security concerns.

Companies are Buying Tablets

Still, companies are buying them - or plan to. The Clark County, Nevada school system spent more than $1 million over six months on more than 1,800 iPads for facualty, administrators and students. The Financial Times spent more than $1 million over six months buying nearly 2,000 subsidized iPads for its entire staff.

Events such as these will become more common in coming years. According to a Forrester Research survey of IT decision makers, 93% expected their administrative professionals and knowledge workers to consume or create content on tablets by 2013. No matter whether those devices are purchased by IT or the workers themselves, that’s a lot of tablets showing up in the workforce.

But why are they buying, and what are they hoping to get for their money? In the case of the Financial Times, it looks like they were fishing for style. Their CEO acknowledged that the subsidy was essentially a bonus - a “recognition of your contribution to our strong performance this year.” For most businesses, the primary benefit appears to be portability, which explains the tablet’s appeal to education, sales and other mobile-minded groups. An Accenture report claims that mobility is indeed, king. “Arguably, [the tablet’s killer app in the enterprise] is the tablet itself enabling instant access to thousands of Web-enabled apps..."
