Scheduled tasks and Cron jobs have always been a staple in a Systems Administrator toolkit. While workloads move to cloud platform, so do our tools. Below I’ll show one way of tackling the promise of being able to turn schedule EC2 resources to auto start and auto shutdown with AWS Lambda service.
Earlier this year Riptide’s Learning Division added to their html5 courseware arsenal. In addition to the Elements courseware, that delivers highly interactive elearning to any device and in any language, Elements released an innovative new courseware product, Waypoints.

It is happening again. The UK is showing America we stumbled on something good and they are helping improve it. American guitarist and songwriter, Joe Walsh, confesses that it was the Rolling Stones and others in the UK who showed him the music that was going on in his own backyard. Blues, R&B, and Rock-n-Roll were all art forms that started from Blues/Jazz in America. The Rolling Stones came to America in the early 60's to find their musical blues heroes broke and obscure here. The Stones revealed their American music heroes to the world and in so doing helped give them actual music careers. Maybe it is a leap to correlate xAPI and data interoperability to Rock and Roll and maybe not. I can hope for an xAPI invasion for Higher Ed in the US.
