LibroEditing proofreading, editing, transcription, localisation In response to a request for information*, today I’m going to be talking about Storify: what is it, why would you use it, and how do you use it? I wasn’t already a user, so this post takes you through the stages of logging in and creating your first story through screenshots created as I did it for the first time myself! What is Storify? Storify is a social media tool that lets you create stories or timelines from a variety of social media resources like Facebook and Twitter, as well as other web resources. You can use it to pull together information on whatever you want, and can customise it how you want, then share your story on the site with your friends on those social media sites.
Podcast Workflow I have been asked about my podcasting workflow. This article outlines how and what equipment I use to record the e-Learning Stuff Podcast.

The Backchannel - Help TodaysMeet What is TodaysMeet? TodaysMeet is the premier backchannel chat platform for classroom teachers and learners. Designed for teachers, TodaysMeet takes great care to respect the needs and privacy of students while giving educators the tools for success. Dynamic Page / Replacing Content This article is an update to this old article, which had an ugly demo and a variety of techniques in it no longer probably considered good practices. This new demo is much cleaner, up to date, and fuller featured. Because the old article was a bit of a different scope, I'll leave it alone, just refer to this one. Update January 2013: There are better practices now, detailed here. Let's say you wanted to make a website where clicking buttons in the nav would dynamically load some content.

FLV Converter - A Layman's Guide to Flash Video Conversion FLV Conversion using FFmpeg FFmpeg is the Swiss army knife of video and audio conversion tools. It is a rock solid open source product (albeit of dubious legality - more on this in a moment) that programmers all over the world turn to religiously in droves, and which is included in many other software programs as the 'tool that does the conversion bit'.

While you could use Tiny Chat, I don't endorse it for classroom use because the Tiny Chat homepage at times displays content that would be inappropriate for a classroom. Chatzy is a neat little website that I learned about from Wes Fryer.

Here's What Adaptive Technology Is Teaching Us About Learning - InformED If you’ve ever created or assigned a PowerPoint presentation at some point during your educational career, take heed: the program’s founders never intended it to be used for educational purposes. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, founder Robert Gaskins said that far more people have access to the program than the relatively small group of salespeople for which it was originally intended. When video projectors became small and cheap, just about every educator adopted one.
