Twas fitting to return these past three days to Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops BC, invited by Brian Lamb to spend some quick time with people and place I was 5 months at in 2014-2015 as an Open Learning Fellow (or Fella). It's a Brian story that the idea for SPLOTs ...

Of all the SPLOTs I worked in with Brian Lamb the TRU Writer one (which I start calling the SPLOT Writer) is easily a favorite. It was not the first one, but the first one that had quick uses out of the gate as a way to create a site ...

It's been more than a year since I ended a fellowship at Thompson Rivers University where Brian Lamb and I cooked up our SPLOT concept (what the SPLOT? See 'em at a lovely short URL or see the presentation we did at OpenEd 2015. They have been bubbling up slowly seeds ...

From the start of SPLOTs we recognized an inherent problem with not asking for people who use them to create accounts / share info-- there would be no way for them to modify what they wrote or shared once it was put in. The same thing happened with the UDG ...

In prep for an Open Ed 2015 presentation with Brian Lamb on our world famous SPLOTs ("SPLOTs and Darkweb Plots: Advancing and Supporting Open Educational Experiences" Lamb-ian title), I spent a bit of time on the plane and here in Vancouver cleaning up the github repository for the TRU Collector ...

Twas almost a year ago at the start of my fellowship at TRU that I started what would become the TRU Writer SPLOT, a tool I think has some legs, and maybe arms. This is on the heels of some demos Brian did last week at the 2015 ETUG Fall ...

Another part of my bag of tricks I brought to the UdG Agora was setting up a site modeled after the original DS106 Daily Create (which is itself a derivative of the defunct Daily Shoot). This idea is something I have kept close for quite some time, that establishing a regular ...

Five. That’s it. Five SPLOTs (Smalles? Possible? Learning? Open? Tools?) created during my TRU Fellowship. But hear me out- it’s not about the tools. Repeat again… “It’s not about the tools” On the heels of the fellowship Brian Lamb and I hope o have a few presentations and maybe even papers (only in ...
