Ask me a question!

January 29th, 2007 by Graham Attwell

Got a very nice email this morning from Elina Jokisalo from the elearningeuropa eLearning Papers editorial team.

“Dear Mr. Attwell”. she says.


“I want to thank you once again for your article that you wrote for eLearning Papers. In fact, also the readers are appreciating it since your paper is the most read and most downloaded among the ones in the latest number! Related to this, I was wondering if you were interested to do a User Generated Interview with us on the portal elearningeuropa.


Let me explain briefly User Generated Interview (UGI): you would be our selected interviewee and readers could post their questions. When the time for sending questions is ended we would gather the questions and send them to you. You would then have 3-4 weeks time to answer the questions. After that your answers will be published in a form of an interview. ….

So basically your involvement would require answering the questions that the readers make…..


Since the article is so popular I thought that readers might want to “interview” and set some questions to you as well about personal learning environments. Please let me know how you would feel about this. Many thanks for your time!.”

Of course I am delighted to answer any questions. If you want to ask a question go the the participation area on the elearningeuropa site (NB. to see the question form you have to be logged in).

    Racial bias in algorithms

    From the UK Open Data Institute’s Week in Data newsletter

    This week, Twitter apologised for racial bias within its image-cropping algorithm. The feature is designed to automatically crop images to highlight focal points – including faces. But, Twitter users discovered that, in practice, white faces were focused on, and black faces were cropped out. And, Twitter isn’t the only platform struggling with its algorithm – YouTube has also announced plans to bring back higher levels of human moderation for removing content, after its AI-centred approach resulted in over-censorship, with videos being removed at far higher rates than with human moderators.

    Gap between rich and poor university students widest for 12 years

    Via The Canary.

    The gap between poor students and their more affluent peers attending university has widened to its largest point for 12 years, according to data published by the Department for Education (DfE).

    Better-off pupils are significantly more likely to go to university than their more disadvantaged peers. And the gap between the two groups – 18.8 percentage points – is the widest it’s been since 2006/07.

    The latest statistics show that 26.3% of pupils eligible for FSMs went on to university in 2018/19, compared with 45.1% of those who did not receive free meals. Only 12.7% of white British males who were eligible for FSMs went to university by the age of 19. The progression rate has fallen slightly for the first time since 2011/12, according to the DfE analysis.
