Josh Lund from FITS just shared a very intriguing resource with me: PlayPosit, which allows educators to create videos with embedded quizzes. PlayPosit appears to be a free service, with paid premium options.
For the right faculty, this looks like a great option to ensure that students are following along with the content for their videos.
You can download the handouts here. If I have updates, I will post them on the same page.

Inspired by St. Vincent de Paul's quote "what must be done?" the team behind TEDx DePaul University is seeking speakers and performers from the DePaul community that will challenge thoughts and inspire ideas through a series of engaging talks at the April 29th event. Do you have a big idea to share with the community?
You can apply online to speak at TEDx.
Although I am happiest using a MacBook, I was impressed by Microsoft's Surface Pro, and now use a Surface Pro 1 and 3 from time to time.
Microsoft recently announced a recall of Microsoft Surface power cords. Full details are here:
If you are a fellow Surface Pro owner I would highly recommend that you check to see if you need the replacement power cord. Microsoft will send you one power cord free of charge (n0 pun intended).
