online MaSh-Ups


The image above was edited with picnik

Picknik can edit photos and link to flickr a huge database of shared images. You can now geotag images to place them on a map, thus creating a mash up.

As an alternative you could use the new Adobe Express web applicaton to edit images online:

As well as Picnik (above ) Photoexpress links to your Flickr account allowing you to open and edit and re-save back your own Flickr account - which can be shared with the world. Don't forget the flickrCC website that allows you search for images that can be used copyright free for education, etc.

* From Flickr you can embed the image as above or simply link to it :

* Create free logos with website :

* What does the RSC do? > have a look at this PPT on Slideshare >

* What do I mean by mash it up? > example this blog + esnips or this blog + slideshare or this blog + my videos on vimeo

* I have an esnips account for hosting videos and slide shows and a vimeo account for my monthly ebulletins. They offer similar a servies to you tube.

* Then there's my new blog + a mind map , which has a link to the mashup awards, with examples like this

** Finally - the dissemainate part **

We've looked at blogs and wikis as both creators of the written medium, aggregators of other web services, (my videos and slides shows embedded in my blog), but they are valued "platforms" of information delivery, along with flickr or photbucket for sharing images, esnips, vimeo or videojug for sharing videos, gabcast (record by phone) or gcast for creating and sharing podcasts.

Then we have my shared bookmarks (where you can find all of these links ) , and free social networking tools similar to facebook or myspace such as crowdvine, ning, or elgg, all can be hosted within your organisation. These social networks can provide methods of dissemination, discussion, informal learning and feedback.

rss feed


Perhaps the most effiecient is the RSS feed, which pushes the latest information to your subscribers I have created a feed of my blog, my bookmarks and my wiki all together ! >

Google reader or Igoogle, pageflakes and feedburner are all examples of this. All good blogs and wikis have the ability to create a feed which can be subscribed to. You can event get a blog to automatically post updates to blog subscribers using feedblitz.

No more fruitless or excessive time spent searching, information comes to you once you've subscribed to your favoutite sites. And reduces that inbox - which is nice .

* Lets go back to that slideshare presentation to have a look at blogs and wikis links. The allows you to search, tag ,and share, and use others slides = saves you time! Even if you only use a few slides per lecture, it's all up there. Sharing is good :o)

* Google docs has a entire suite of online tools to create and share , including a wordprocessor, a spreadsheet, a calendar, a group wiki, share and edit images using Picassa, a free 3d Modelling application and Google earth, which is nearly as good as the MS earth thing! The latest is Google sites, which allows group editng of a wiki (group work made easy!) Google even offer a special download for educational establishments to host off of these services.

Another easy wiki to use is wetpaint

* Podcasting is free and easy with Odeo, gcast , or gabcast allow easy postcasting using the telephone - how simple is that!! + theres the cast yourself site :oP

As well as esnips which allows you to add a narration to a slideshow, slidehare now allows slidecasts (with synchronised free music or recorded voiceover) , plus voicethread allows you to create digital stories with ease - as a discussion point , group work, contentious issues, etc

Sign up to this wiki to get some pedagogic planning tools - to provide inspiration.

Lets finish on the dissemainate part , back in the old blog >>
