It’s a special holiday episode of High Ed Hangout (we have holiday beverages!). We jump right in with our favorite note-taking apps and then transition to our yearly tech (and non-tech) Christmas lists.
It’s been a while since we’ve met, so we spend some time talking pandemic and lock-down, and what the work environment will look like when this is all over. Then we move into tech and talk a bit about the new Apple M1 chips.
We still live in Covid-land so we talk about haircuts, Covid trackers that our schools are using or building, and what it will look like to come back to campus. We also sprinkle in a bit of Apple to try and add a positive spin.
We’re still figuring out this quarantine thing. Many of us need a haircut! We go over reopening plans and talk through what other schools have announced before going into how we list areas of study and majors on our websites.
The global pandemic has just begun, and we’re all adjusting in different ways. We talk about how we’re handling things personally, and how our universities are handling things (via policy and technology).
It’s the first HEH of 2020! Grand Valley State is moving to PHP, so we chat with Daniel about the best way to make that move. We also chat about hidden nav menus and UX decisions for a university homepage.
The conversation starts with different (interesting… disgusting) ways to ingest alcohol. We chat a bit about new MacBooks before transitioning to conference that (Dave is speaking at a few. Daniel talks about his experience at WordCamp National, and we get into the recent WordPress controversy
It’s been a while since we gathered to record, so we reminisce for a bit before talking about poop (in relation to Andre’s upcoming podcast “Oopsie Poopsie”). We hit on recent travels, and then before concluding quickly mention websites.
High Ed Hangout is a bunch of higher ed geeks from around the country drinking beers and chatting about technology, the web, design, marketing, development, media, and whatever else comes to mind (usually with a higher ed spin). Come hang out with us!
