Danger Ahead

Canadian universities and colleges like to congratulate themselves for their enormous success in increasing international student enrolments over the past few years.  And why not?  That success has brought Canadian institutions billions of dollars and allowed them to make up for roughly a decade of domestic tuition fee controls and stagnant core provincial funding.

Age 71

Ontario is a weird place sometimes.  One month ago, the government announced that it was implementing a performance-based funding plan which – if you took the government’s half-thought-out comments seriously – raised the possibility that hundreds of millions or perhaps even billions of dollars currently projected to be spent on institutions might be snatched away if institutions failed to hit some ill-defined targets in a type of contract-based funding system.

Bogota

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Stephen Downes[Edit][Delete]: Bogota, Google Video [Edit][Delete] September 15, 2006
Today is a banner day. For the last four weeks, I have been working on a video recounting my experiences in Bogota. I managed to get it to upload onto Google Video today. It's not perfect - you'll spot some flaws pretty easily - and it would be nice to have edited it more, but they're right. A laptop isn't really a video editing tool. But it's what I've got. Also, this is my first video that I created and edited by myself (I used Adobe Premier Elements). I had to teach myself how to create it as I created it. Learning in action. But this is what I mean - the tools for content creation are in the hands of the people now. Anyhow, despite any flaws it may have, I'm very proud of it. I hope you enjoy it. Let it buffer for a bit; it's 30 minutes long. You can also read the transcript on my blog. [Tags: , , , ] [Comment]. More...
