Changes to CTL M.Ed. requirements at OISE/UT

Got an email this morning informing me that the rules have changed regarding degree requirments for my M.Ed. via the department of Curriculum Teaching and Learning at OISE/UT.

Seems as though I now have the option of completing degree requirements without having to complete a "major research project" (MRP).

When I began the degree, requirements included eight courses and the MRP. Now I hear that I have the option of opting out of the project itself and taking 10 courses.

Notwithstanding the fact that I no longer need to complete the MRP, I think I'll go ahead with mine. Of course this is predicated on the notion that I actually come up with a project proposal and get it signed-off by my academic advisor at OISE/UT.

As always, watch this space for details.

Furl It

Here's a link to an application my buddy Russ told me about. In fact, I'll let him tell you about it...

Don't know if you've heard of this one yet. I started using it over the weekend, and so far am quite impressed. Works very well for those of us who do a lot of web research. Thought it might work well for your current weblog/education freeware initiative, as it includes options to provide rss feeds and code to insert your content into your own site or blog. Very easy to use as well.

Just go to for the details.

...thanks Russ, I've only just begun to check it out and it does look like a very valuable tool.
