Blog Etiquette: Get The Source (April 22, 2003 09:39 PM)
I've noticed quite often as I read more blogs, that people are blogging on another person's blog on an original post... Why do they not go to the bother to credit the source? Here is one example from Xplana that not only mangles the credit, but does a crappy link... «more»

RSS & LOs BlogMentions (April 21, 2003 03:53 PM)
Just to keep up, here is some summary blog action referring to our work here on Learning Objects and RSS (Too bad Manila/Radio users do not have their entries coded internally to be recognized via autodiscover, and cannot be TrackBacked)... And it has been only about a week or two... «more»

Google of the Week (April 20, 2003 01:32 PM)
Part of (maybe) a regular feature here is a preset "Google-link" that produces results relevant to CDB... Coming soon will be a simple guide site to doing this for yourself, but it is just about the easiest, simplest, and most effective way to share external information without researching yourself...... «more»

And Boris then TBs the Same Object (April 19, 2003 03:42 PM)
Meet my second learning object blogger, Boris the humanities teacher. He also finds the same correlation meter blogged by Lora, and ads an entry to his own blog- essentially he has a different use for the same LO. And thus, one object in our collection can be networked to places... «more»

BackTrack to TrackBack (April 19, 2003 03:35 PM)
It was David Wiley's paper "Learning objects: difficulties and opportunities" that got me thinking about how weblogs might be able to provide the contextual "wrapper" around learning objects- .e.g. people implementing LOS would use tools like MT's TrackBack to discover properly marked objects, and then describe how they might be... «more»

Meet Lora.. (April 19, 2003 03:25 PM)
Lora's geology objects was the first psuedo blog I created in MT to demonstrate a site in which w person is harnessing the LO/RSS notion in one field. Lora is a Geology insutrctor, and here she has set up MovableType to accept RSS Feeds form our Maricopa Learning eXchange. Later... «more»
