We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of March 14-24 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We have five trends that we discuss. Virtual Reality remains a trend. The Oculus Rift has finally shipped. Microsoft’s Holo Lens was in the news as well with different applications being developed. Online Learning was a trend with a variety of resources discussing supporting online learners, political issues with online learning, and research about online learning. The other three trends were news from SXSWedu, neuroscience and cognition, and Apple product announcements.

We have four recommended readings.
