20: Less is More

In this episode, Erik and Kris discuss lots of news including Royal Roads University's free micro-credential system, new Google certificates, Scott Galloway's $30 million education venture, and Microsoft's Viva and Mesh platforms. For #EdTechOfficeHours our co-hosts recommend the best website creation platforms and address file naming conventions. Kris and Erik also provide a mini-review of Cal Newport's books Deep Work, Digital Minimalism, and A World Without Email. Finally, they also talk about essential (yet mundane) home office gear.
