Ep 63 – My Kingdom for a Smartphone

This week, Down the Hall is visited by royalty. Ok, not actual royals, but your hosts do talk about the new addition to the British royal family, Prince George of Cambridge (the name was not known at the time of recording). As well, there are the plans for Leicester Cathedral to be the new resting place for the remains of Richard III.

In addition, Dave talks to Dr. David Vogt, graduate advisor for the MET program, about learning using mobile devices as a platform, and the new course he is designing for the MET program on the subject. It’s a wide-ranging interview that we know you’ll enjoy. (Note: in the interview, David says there will be one section of the new course. There are actually two sections now)
