You Tube EDU

Take a look at

It's YouTube's education initiative, and has lectures from many great universities available online. I spent 40 minutes trying to follow the General Theory of Relativity before I gave up, but it was cool to think of myself as a physics major at Stanford for a little while. (the lecture is 1 hour and 38 minutes long, so I didn't last that long!)

It's a great opportunity to learn. It's also worth thinking about what kinds of opportunities this raises for an education company like ours. Any thoughts? Let me know.

Goa Redux

I'm back home from our Higher Education NSM in Goa, and I think we all had a great time. Well done to everyone who was involved in the planning and execution of the event.

The format was tighter this year, and we managed to cover the agenda in two days, rather than the three we did before, and I think this works well.

The team seems confident of beating our budgets, but the next 4 months are going to test us all, the editors and manufacturing to get the books out on schedule, the sales force to drive sales, and the Operations team to execute the orders.

The hotel was beautiful, good service, and I was able to sneak out time for swimming and volleyball. I am dreading seeing some of the pictures from the dance on the last night!
