Welcome to the Learning Ecosystems blog! Thanks for dropping by!
My name is Daniel Christian. On this Learning Ecosystems blog, you will find leading edge information on a variety of topics relevant to the worlds of K-12, higher education, and corporate training and development. I seek to help people build their own learning ecosystems by curating promising resources, tools, technologies, pedagogies, strategies, visions, ideas, and innovations.
I’m working hard to change higher education — urging institutions to reinvent themselves to become more relevant, accessible, affordable, and effective in developing lifelong learners. I urge them to consider that they operate on a continuum of learning — addressing the ever-changing K-12 student on one side of things, while on the other side of things, keeping an eye on what our graduates need to be able to do once they enter the workplace.
Finally, I work to help others discover and develop the gifts, abilities, and passions that the LORD gave them.

I enjoy scanning several types of landscapes — looking for trends, discerning patterns, connecting seemingly disparate topics/events, and identifying emerging technologies that look promising. I’ve come to value and practice:
- strategic, innovative, visionary thinking
- self-directed learning (heutagogy)
A quick snapshot of my educational background looks like this:
- Capella University: Masters of Science, Instructional Design for Online Learning
- San Francisco State University’s Multimedia Studies Program: Certificate, Web Design & Production
- Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies: 36-Hour Certificate, Computer Studies
- Northwestern University: Bachelors of Science, Economics
I contribute to Campus Technology magazine, evoLLLution.com, eLearning Learning, elearningfeeds.com, Quibly, and other organizations and projects such as Citrix’/Mighty Guides Mobile Education ebook.
Anyway, I look forward to our conversations. Here’s to developing a love of learning!
