Bo commented on Education Marketplace: Crowdsourcing Classroom


Thanks for your input - there are many ways of making this connection more meaningful to invite people coming to the classroom for learning. We need more active "pulling" and "calling" - for example, I came back to OPENIDEO's site today after receiving a "We missed you" email from OPENIDEO.

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for sharing your comments - yes, there are plenty of awesome websites and apps for learning. I'd love to start with them for prototype of the marketplace platform.

Thanks Abdulaziz! Yes, privacy issues definitely need to be addressed. It's one thing to have applications like OPENIDEO pull our user info upon register and use it as a starting point to build our profile. However it's another thing to have the app keeps pulling information from Facebook. From technology feasibility perspective, Facebook has "event" API for applications to pull user data with user's approval, therefore I think the technology on security and authorization is mature enough at the moment for this idea.
