MOOCs: Forging Diversity and Innovation



The world of education, workplace learning, talent development – in short anyone and everyone connected with learning in some way – are talking, debating, evaluating, exploring, and generally trying to wrap their brains around this phenomenon called MOOCs. It’s now a given that MOOCs are here to stay. It’s becoming evident that despite the high dropout rates, critiques of being elitist and accessible to only a handful, and other similar drawbacks, MOOCs have becoming firmly entrenched in the collective psyche of the academia as well as workplace learning.

IMHO, MOOCs, apart from opening up a much-needed debate around the current

[Updated] Seagate External HDD NTFS Driver for Mac

This is a simplified post detailing how to go about using Seagate External HDD on Mac.

  1. The Seagate External HDD by default formatted as NTFS. Mac has flaky support to read and write to NTFS. Sometimes you will be able to write, otherwise it will open the HDD in read-only mode. In worst circumstances it will not even detect your HDD. Don't Panic.
  2. If you are able to read your Seagate HDD in read-only mode, check for driver inside Vendor folder and hope along with all the goodies you have the NTFS Driver. Don't confuse goodies with driver. After installing…

Android Continuous Long Click Listener

This is about implementing a UI Pattern very common for mobile applications. You have a button which increments the value if you do a simple click on a button. If you long press instead of click, it increments the value in chunks rather than single units. These behaviours can be implemented using standard Android library event listeners like View.OnClickListener and View.OnLongClickListener.

For my app, I was looking for implementation where you keep the button pressed and it continuously keeps updating the value in chunks. Sadly, View.OnLongClickListener doesn't have any such support, so I decided to make a custom listener for…

Being an Entrepreneur

Lesson 1: No matter what you do, few things will go at it's own pace ! When you can't influence them, bear them and be happy !

When I planned with other two friends of mine to leave ThoughtWorks and set up a company of our own, we had no much of idea of outside world. We were starting on getting the company name finalised, registering the company. Reading mostly on web we found out that it would take around 4 weeks to register a company. We thought we have around 4 weeks of notice period and started the procedure. Believe

Enabling Developer Options in Xiaomi Redmi and Mi3 for Android Development and USB Debugging

I hope many of us in India were able to grab the Xiaomi Mi3 or Redmi throught the flash sale on Flipkart. If you haven't, I would highly recommend to get this value for money phone.

Anyways, for me, the primary purpose of buying this phone was to use it for Android App development. To my surprise, I couldn't find the USB Debugging option in the Settings. I was utterly confused and so I did the obvious - Googled it.

It turns out, the Developer Options are hidden by default in the MIUI - the custom UI that comes…

Leading and Guiding Groups: Safe Enjoyable Learning

As a coach or leader the most important thing that you can do is to create a safe space for enjoyable learning and working.

Hold your team and teach them to support each other. They will learn, create and grow.

The most important job

When starting my training as a paddle-sports coach I was told:
“The most important job you can do is to ensure people are safe and having fun. If you do this and nothing else, there is a good chance the group will be learning”

On the water I could see how people functioned differently when they…
