iWonder

The ETS has renamed its ICT exam to iSkills to make it sound more relevant and hip. At least they didn’t call it iSkillz.

I’m guessing people got tired of explaining the acronym – or correcting people when they assumed the C stood for computer.

But in the rush to be cool, I wonder: Should UDub rename its LIS program iSchool? Should we drape giant white earbuds over our libraries to make them appear more plugged in?

iDoubt it.
