Some delay since my last post so I wanted to mention a few odds and ends in this one.

  • I am most excited to have my first guest blog post ever soon as my wife will be posting on her experiences studying for the CPA exam and how she used mobile technology towards that end. I rarely see a lot of attention being paid to accounting or finance in mobile learning circles so I think it will useful in that respect. And it is my wife so most exciting. She will outline how she configures her mobile technology, apps she uses, etc. so stay tuned.
  • We have also relocated to Seoul, Korea for another go in East Asia. She will be returning to her accounting position and I will be starting up at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies as a professor (trying to cram in mobile learning each and every step of the way). So one more go around with Korea, my tenth year here.
