Virtual and Artificial, but 58,000 Want Course - NYTimes.com - 1 views

  • A free online course at Stanford University on artificial intelligence, to be taught this fall by two leading experts from Silicon Valley, has attracted more than 58,000 students around the globe — a class nearly four times the size of Stanford’s entire student body.
  • The three online courses, which will employ both streaming Internet video and interactive technologies for quizzes and grading, have in the past been taught to smaller groups of Stanford students in campus lecture halls. Last year, for example, Introduction to Artificial Intelligence drew 177 students.
  • How will the artificial intelligence instructors grade 58,000 students? The scientists said they would make extensive use of technology. “We have a system running on the Amazon cloud, so we think it will hold up,” Dr. Norvig said.

Economics Game Ramp Up: Effective Achievements - Zac Zidik - 6 views

  • The real challenge in designing this game will be designing it so that there are many paths to success and and many paths to failure with all the mediums inbetween, while continually keeping the player informed on how they are doing in regards to the "expected achievements."

Push Pop Press: Al Gore's Our Choice - 2 views

    I don't care if you agree with the science, this represents the first real interactive text designed for iOS that I have seen.  I can't even imagine how much this thing cost to make, but it looks really stunning.  But at 4.99 it seems like a mind bending opportunity to learn about interaction design.
