This Week in Ed-Tech: App Inventor Finds a New Home | Hack Education
"Fans of Google‘s Android App Inventor can breathe a sigh of relief. Following on last week’s news that Google planned to shut App Inventor down, the company announced that it was open sourcing the project and handing it over to MIT Media Lab. The Media Lab in turn, and with seed funding from Google, announced it would launch a new Center for Mobile Learning, focusing on how new mobile technologies can help enhance learning and utilizing App Inventor as its first project."

"Skillshare announced this week that it has raised $3.1 million from Union Square Ventures and Spark Capital to help extend its offerings. Skillshare allows anyone to offer a class — on or offline. A sign, perhaps of great and committed investors: USV’s Alfred Wenger has taught a Skillshare class on Bayesian probability."
