Exchange Labs

Leave a comment if you’ve gone the live@edu route. The main part I’m interested in is the creation of Exchange Labs accounts for students, giving them 10 gigs of storage and a choice Outlook Web Access, Outlook, MacMail, Windows Mobile, etc.

Secondly, I’m interested in Microsoft Identity Lifecycle manager, and the control of AD in the creation and manipulation of accounts over time. Specifically, I’m wondering if student Exchange Labs email accounts can share a global directory with a faculty/staff Exchange system hosted locally or remotely. (Thus, a split but connected system.)

Third, I also know that single login authentication is offered, meaning that Outlook Web Access could be part of a school portal system.

Fun things to consider. Let me know if you’ll already done all the work I’m interested in… :)

The Dichotomy

Two weeks into school, and things are beginning to calm. I’ve been thinking about the dichotomy.

In a broad sense, technology should enable students to have more individualized learning experiences. More content that they choose. More avenues of research and production. More chances for self-paced learning. Perhaps even expert learning. Creativity. Discovery. Confidence.

At the same time, technology enables more collaboration and sharing. More group work. More debates, and contact with authorities and peers. More publication options, and more opportunities to use shared pools of knowledge and material.

It’s strange that technology can do both. In some ways, both are more respectful of the individual, even when collaborating with others, because the ties between each are more visible and documented.
