Intagible Services

Service providers participate in an economy without the restrictions of carrying inventory or the need to concern themselves with bulky raw materials. Furthermore, their investment in expertise does require consistent service marketing.

Delivery Services

Service such as labor is performed the buyer does not take exclusive ownership of that, unless agreed upon by buyer and seller. The benefits of such a service are held to be self-evident in the buyer’s willingness to pay for it.

Custom Services

One of the most important characteristics of services is the participation of the customer in the service delivery process. A customer has the opportunity to get the services modified according to specific requirement.

Introducing TeachThought News

Introducing TeachThought News

by Terry Heick

There’s a lot happening at TeachThought these days.

In an ongoing effort to disrupt education through the growth of innovative teachers, we’re constantly experimenting with new ideas, conducting formal and informal impact analyses, and otherwise doing stuff to make stuff happen.

In addition to the most visible portion of TeachThought (the site), and all of our social channels (more on that soon), there is a whole lot of ‘new’ around here as well. We have launched more than a dozen projects in the last 18 months with much more to come, which is why we’re starting a separate page just to keep track where we are and what we’re doing. (More soon here as well.) Some of that will stick and grow, and other bits may not. TeachThought lacks the resources, personnel, and erstwhile backing of the larger (and fantastic) sites like edutopia, edsurge, mindshift and others, so we have to be very careful with how we focus on time and energy.

One of those ventures we’re going to take a look at is ‘TeachThought News,’ a way to for you to stay on top of innovation news–what’s happening in and around innovation in education. It’s not a formal newswire, nor will we cover all of the traditional education news fare. For that, edweek, nytimes, and others are much better sources of news. But if the TeachThought ethos and tone to teaching and learning appeal to you, then this may add some value to your craft as an educator.

Visit TeachThought News every morning for the latest innovation news and events, and join in the social conversation we’ll soon be bringing to you there as well.

As always, if you have any thoughts or comments, you can always email me directly.

Thank you, as always, for your efforts to create a better world.
