Here are four key things to remember when assessing whether the next new company is likely to disrupt your business:
These differences are laid out in Disruptive Strategy with Clayton Christensen. Low-end disruption refers to businesses that come in at the bottom of the market and serve customers in a way that is “good enough.”
When innovative new products or services – iPhone, Tesla’s electric cars, Uber, and the like – launch and grab the attention of the press and consumers, do they qualify as disruptors in their industries? Writing in Harvard Business Review, Christensen cautions us that it takes time to determine whether an innovator’s business model will succeed.
If you are a current incumbent and want to be on the lookout for a possibly disruptive emerging business, the clarification of what disruption is certainly helps.

Teachers Report Growing Interest, Persistent Skepticism About Games
- 62% of teachers said it was their own comfort level with technology that was one of the biggest barriers to incorporating games and tech in the classroom.

I am a new faculty member, in the Department of !!!!!!!!!. I have been waiting my teaching courses to be listed on D2L, but still I cannot see them. It’s maybe because I am still listed as “Staff” instead of “Professor.” Could you please check this out for me?
Good morning !!!!!!
Please have directions from the IMS blog (keep in mind using it as FAQ regarding D2L) how to request D2L courses:
If you log into that dbase, you will see the following picture:
which means that you, your department [chair] and Records and Registration must enter you as the Instructor of Record (what you call “Professor”)
Only after that you will see in the above-mentioned dbase your name and you will be able to request your D2L course.
We are not able to do more on our side.
THank you and let me know, if more questions.
