More on My Chancellor's Professorship

Ok, as VCCS Chancellor's professor for 2012-14, I have created a website to track my progress and my thoughts on my different projects.  I have been considering the role of smartphones to use in my courses.  Because of their size, I think that they do have a role in communication, but I am leery of their use to deliver content, because of their size.  I simply do not think that we have to miniaturize everything.  If TVs are getting bigger to deliver video content, why should we be delivering video content on smaller and smaller screens.  I think that there has got to be some kind of cognitive limit reached with such small devices.
