My Interview with McGraw Hill on Distance Education and Online Technologies

This past year I was interviewed in the "Thought Leader" section of McGraw Hill's Principles of Management Newsletter. In the interview I respond to the following questions regarding distance education and online technologies:
  • How did you come to do work in distance education?
  • What is your favorite distance learning activity or experience?
  • How does distance learning enrich your life … your career... as opposed to traditional in-class teaching?
  • Describe a “zinger” that unexpectedly challenged you in your distance teaching? How did you address it and what were the results?
  • What are your distance learning principles for success?
  • Is there one distance learning principle you hold most dear, that you will always do? Is there one thing you will never do, no matter what, in distance education?
  • How do you see distance courses changing over the next 5-10 years?
  • What are your hopes for the future of distance learning in higher education?

To make it easier for you to add powerful mapping capabilities to your application, Google provides a Maps external library that includes the com.google.android.maps package. The classes of the com.google.android.maps package offer built-in downloading, rendering, and caching of Maps tiles, as well as a variety of display options and controls. The key class in the Maps package is com.google.android.maps.MapView, a subclass of ViewGroup. A MapView displays a map with data obtained from the Google Maps service. When the MapView has focus, it will capture keypresses and touch gestures to pan and zoom the map automatically, including handling network requests for additional maps tiles. It also provides all of the UI elements necessary for users to control the map. Your application can also use MapView class methods to control the MapView programmatically and draw a number of Overlay types on top of the map. java software company | software development company | java web development | blackberry app development | iphone app development | android app development | java outsourcing | it outsourcing services | http://www.tenaxtechnologies.com
