Getting ready to start the Thursday 8:00am general session, another presenation by Garry Putland from EdNA (Education Network Australia). There will be other bloggers in the room madly typing the notes, so I plan to lean back and observe... Too bad the room is looking pretty sparse- Garry is brilliant and ...

We are flattered. David is aiming for a clone of our Maricopa Learning eXchange, and is added to the list of people requesting a copy of it. We are not being stingy and would love to put the code out there. For the 10 years I have been web publishing, our ...

(This blog is from memory- a browser freeze up managed to eat a half composed immediate blog entry). First half was on the connection of MERLOT and EDUCAUSE's NLII (National Learning Infrastructure Initiative). NLII research fellows Colleen Carmean and Patricia McGee provided the overview of NLII as the arm of the ...

Although Boris recently blogged on a convoluted way to get RSS feeds from Amazon.com, there is a slicker interface from onfocus , the Amazon RSS Feed Builder. This site is by "pb" or Paul Bausch, "co-developer" of Blogger and author of Amazon Hacks, so definitely no slouch at the programming command ...

Simply wonderful. RIT professor Liz Lawley is doing some great things by (a) trying; and (b) sharing here efforts in using movabletype as courseware. A version of her Fall 2003 Introduction to Multimedia courseblog is available for peeking (her own mamamusings blog is worth looking at just to see what ...
