Howdy folks! I’m an Instructional Designer at UT Dallas. I have a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Angelo State University and a Master’s in Computer Education and Cognitive Systems from the University of North Texas. I’ve been working in edtech for 11 years. Hmm… what else? I’m a *huge* fan of that little Irish band called U2, and I’m a bigtime Firefly/Serenity advocate.

    That has got to be one of the most unfriendly FAQs ever. I wonder if these people really know what they are doing. The say they want to bring the “Proven Facebook Model to the Enterprise”…. except for the fact that Facebook was free. All attempts to monetize the Facebook model have pretty much gone no where.
