Shelley Is On It: "Using RSS Feeds in English 102" MLX Package (February 28, 2005 06:20 PM)
One of my colleagues has gotten bit severely by the weblog / RSS fever--- this is a good thing. Shelley teaches English at Mesa Community College and is experimenting this semester with having her student review resources via Bloglines, and she is crafting an extra credit assignment for them to... «more»

MLX Track Spam: The Annihilator (February 20, 2005 01:09 AM)
It's been a while since the spam roaches attached the Trackbacks on the Maricopa Learning eXchange, but I guess they had some extra time after recess to splat their PPC (porn, pills, casino) links into the MLX Sharebacks. I am still resisting closing it down completely, but likely will, as... «more»

Wow... Adunct Faculty Jumps Feet First Into MLX and ePortfolio (January 28, 2005 04:56 PM)
CDB readers may know of the struggles written here to solicit Maricopa people to share their instructional materials and teaching ideas in our Maricopa Learning eXchange (MLX) which is at almost 1100 items. Our efforts have included bribery and competition, but have yet to embrace physical threats. If I had... «more»

Putting MLX Feeds Where My Mouth Is (January 28, 2005 04:35 PM)
I recently wrote some criticism of views that RSS feeds are "only for new stuff", and given that I had a request today for a randomized Maricopa Learning eXchange feed, it was time to put my feeds where my mouth is/was. Before today, the feeds we generate as fixed static... «more»

When Projects Rain, It Pours (January 12, 2005 06:12 PM)
Yes, what is with the weather? Even here in Arizona, the last two weeks have brought tremendous rain to the desert, doubling are average, flooding the dry washes. Up north, the mountain tops are getting snow by the foot. And this week, the projects here habe been coming down in... «more»

MLX Package Receives Feedback from Indonesia (December 20, 2004 08:59 AM)
How refreshing it is to catch some comment feedback that is not spam. Package #1463 Areal Weighting with Thiessen Polygons was created by Water Resources technology faculty member Lisa Young: a brief tutorial that demonstrates the procedures for determining areal weighting from point precipitation gages using the Thiessen Polygon Method.... «more»

Hey Phentermine Pusher: You Left Your Roach Prints in Our Spam Honey Pot (December 13, 2004 09:10 AM)
Spammers can hid, but they are not invisible. On Dec 10, I invited readers of this blog to send us some Trackbacks to MLX Packages... while I am eager to see this technology used, this was actually a bit of bait. Our regular MLX spammer bit the bait completely. Within... «more»

Trackback / Sharebacks: Give These Packages Some Lovin' (December 10, 2004 05:27 PM)
We've promoted many different times (see the Breezed NMC Oct 2003 presentation) the notion that weblog Trackback technology provides a simple, and working now, method to connect descriptions of usage of learning objects stored in "thingamotories" (or "repositories if you like). Or, as we deemed it Learning Object Reuse Acknowledgment... «more»

The Final Finish Line for the Last Great MLX Package Race (December 6, 2004 12:26 AM)
After 3 or 4 extensions, December 8 is the final deadline I have set in the sand for our 4th and final Great Maricopa Learning eXchange Package Race. As outlined in previous presentations, we set up an incentive program to entice people in our system to contribute their learning activities,... «more»

Chipping Away at the openMLX (October 6, 2004 10:38 PM)
I actually managed to grab a few hourts the last few days to focus on the openMLX, the supposed open source version of our Maricopa Learning eXchange. We have a "de-Maricopized" version running (this does not have the latest changes), but I am doing the new developments on another copy... «more»

Spam's Quiet on the Western Front (October 3, 2004 07:43 PM)
I hope this is the last on MLX spam for a while. I'd rather be writing code for adding features to it than trying to fortify the moat. And I guess my finger pointing at domain registrars was off base as pointed out by some comments earlier today. Somebody out... «more»

MLX Spam Direct Route to Trash (October 2, 2004 08:25 AM)
Yes, I have been a bit obsessed lately with the roaches who have been spamming our Maricopa Learning eXchange. This is not all I have been doing this week, but it grinds away. I have a latest fix which will be secretive since I believe the spammer is a reader... «more»

MLX Says, "Thanks for All the Spam"! (September 29, 2004 06:00 PM)
The fight goes on. Spammers keep trying to thrust their links to pharmaceutical and gambling and whatever sites via the Maricopa Learning eXchange comments. Today, some hours were spent making sure all new comments were not made visible, so after submitting the form, they should see that nothing has... «more»

A New Low For Spammers: MLX Package Comment Spams (September 22, 2004 12:47 PM)
I just got a message from one of our faculty member's who got a notice that her Maricopa learning eXchange "package" on Creating a Webliography was blessed with a comment from "Casino Gambling" offering tons of wonderful and exotic URLs for various substances and things I had never heard of.... «more»

Reusable Ideas, not Objects: Pop Culture Bingo (September 7, 2004 08:54 PM)
More on the MLX front. An item that came in recently got me thinking more so about the value of reusable ideas- sure it is great to have some complex, engaging Flash animated do-hickey, but what great teachers have in great volume, and worth sharing, are smaller gems of great... «more»

The Next (and Last?) Great MLX Package Race (September 7, 2004 08:42 PM)
For the last two years we have tried a myriad of methods for soliciting people in our system to contribute their teaching ideas, class activities, course materials, heck even "learning objects" to our Maricopa Learning eXchange (MLX) (see more about our incentive methods) Even getting closer to the 1000 item... «more»

Todd's Big IDEA: Firefox search plugin for MLX (August 25, 2004 09:01 PM)
Todd has done something cool. He published a search plugin for Mozilla/Firefox web browsers that provides a direct keyword search into the Maricopa Learning eXchange (MLX). I don't do a lot of browser hopping beyond testing on the major brands. I've taken the cues from the Zeldmans out there... «more»

MLX: Critical Mass or Wide Load? (July 17, 2004 10:32 PM)
It's been our belief that it would take time for our Maricopa Learning eXchange (MLX) to reach that magical tipping point, critical mass- when it contained enough content, resources, objects, ideas that our users could easily find something useful for themselves that they would be self-compelled to add their own... «more»

History has been made! Pat Delaney has created the first package in the new open source MLX demonstration site, with his MLX Package on Twinned Manila sites for k-12 student publishing. We still have a lot of work to do on the site, yes there are missing links, the RSS... «more»

The Blog Blinks On (and Off).. Catch Up on OpenMLX (June 30, 2004 01:57 AM)
The dog has not died, but the author has been offline following the NMC 2004 Summer conference in Vancouver, taking advantage of the launch point for some relaxing travel to Vancouver Island and the tremendous Rocky Mountains south of Jasper, Alberta. It is just a short stopover in Phoenix to... «more»
