Is Facebook the future of call-centers ? The Air France KLM Switzerland case - Bertrand Duperrin's Notepad

John Tropea - Delicious Community

The Air France KLM Switzerland case. The Air France KLM Switzerland case. Facebook is becoming a call center and the community manager a problem solver and a connector like the Air France – KLM Switzerland case shows. I recently found this long and interesting video in which Alain Pezzoni from Air France KLM Switzerland talks about their social media strategy. This is Air France KLM Switzerland, not Air France KLM global and this fact is important.

The Benefits and Risks of Academic Openness

Jenny Connected

Yesterday Frances Bell made a presentation to FSLT12 MOOC on. Frances didn’t throw content at us, tell us what to think or how to think, but challenged our thinking with the questions. Frances states. But I do agree with Stephen that openness is the result of critical examination – which I think fits with Frances’ statement that openness can be thought of as a default option. As Frances has said in the Moodle discussion forum.

New metaphors for learning

At the beginning of this year Mariana Funes, Frances Bell and I had a paper published about the use of the rhizome as a metaphor for learning. Ironically this week Nick Sousanis reported that a library in France couldn’t categorise his book.

Frances and I hoped that by blogging about our planning for the presentation, we would overcome both these difficulties, but of course we cannot assume that anyone has read the blog posts.

However smooth spaces are not necessarily utopias, as Frances Bell, Mariana Funes and I found in some recent research. The second keynote at the Networked Learning Conference 2016 was presented by Sian Bayne.
