After a rousing introduction from IBM Fellow and wonderful compere Jerry Cuomo, Doug Schmidt, chief enterprise architect here at Pearson, took the stage on the Technology in Motion day of the all-singing, all-dancing mega IBM Impact conference in Vegas. We’re not kidding about the dancing either – the video kicks off with a neon-clad dance crew, but click straight to 12.33 on the video to get Jerry’s intro and Doug’s talk. Doug gave a whistlestop overview of how technology can make education more accessible, more open, more affordable and more effective, including how we’re doing that at Pearson. Doug’s talk will take you to 25.06 on the video – it’ll be 13 minutes very well spent, but if you just want the two minute overview of the day’s presentations, it’s on YouTube.
