OU Create and the Virtual Award Show

Part of the excitement of bringing a Domain of One’s Own model to OU was the opportunity to contribute to the broader community in edtech that is thinking about how to apply web domains to higher ed. There’s a rich narrative (nay, myth) that has mostly been archived on Jim Groom’s blog about how the […]

I play Wizards Unite and Pokemon Go, two very popular mobile video games made by Niantic. On any given Sunday, you can probably find me wondering around Norman collecting Pokemon and various items from the Harry Potter world with my wife and daughter and mother-in-law.
