RSA-Wannabes?

2 Feb

At work we get constant requests to conceptualize and produce RSA-style timelapse video content for trainings.


While we are trying to establish a style we call our own (instead of being yet another RSA-wannabe), I was on the look-out for a stopgap measure that requires lesser resources.

And then the ah-ha moment…. why not Prezi (think: doodle function and linked path and motion)?!

To embed Prezi in WordPress.com blogs, look-up bookbagdesigner‘s response to this thread.

Of clippings and pinnings.

25 Feb

We use Diigo at work to share information/resources. Something along that line will be pinterest.com (Pin·terest (pĭn’trĭst): n. a social catalog to collect and share things you love)! I’ve been visiting this site practically 10times daily for all that eye-candy. Downside is I am STILL on the waiting list so no boards for myself yet!

I apply the similar technique while searching for information online. No pinterest.com though, I go for Evernote’s Web Clipper. For the missing social aspect, share your Evernote notebook with the world/individual(s).

No pinning (at least for now) but I am happy with my clipping(s) 🙂

Gearing up!

*clears cob webs*

Finally back to blogging! Tight deadlines and large volume of projects took a toll on me. Sooo much to share in this space so I am going to do this bit by bit 🙂

First and foremost it’s December and as we’re getting ready to let out hair down and party (that very much explains the Christmas-y ambiance via the “snow flakes” in here), there are some hurdles to clear *gulps*

A recent project pave a path for me to discover and explore Edmodo. For those of you who’ve yet to discover Edmodo, think of it as a FB-style secured social networking + micro-blogging tool for education. For me, in short, it’s simply one of the most easy to use LMS-replacement.

What?

An online classroom communications tool for teachers and students to share Notes, Files, links, and assignments similar to Twitter or Facebook.

Why?

  • Simple for teacher to create account and set up page
  • Easy student/parent registration
  • Allows you to upload documents for students/parents
  • Allows students to hand in assignments electronically
  • Allows you to grade online
  • Teacher can message students individually
  • Has ability for “forum” type online discussions
  • Allows teachers to make groups easily for each class
  • Can send mass messages across groups
  • Calendar will show assignments with links to document
  • And…. easily embed artifacts created using many other Web 2.0 tools within Edmodo!

Interested? Here’s a video link on how to get started:

Currently, I’m exploring the possibility of using Edmodo for my personal ePortfolio – showcasing projects I’ve worked on for mid-term appraisal review. Hopefully, in time to come, I do not get succumbed to using other platforms and am able to share my experience on using Edmodo for my ePortfolio.

Looking forward to a fruitful Edmodo journey…
