John Dalziel's curator insight, November 30, 10:59 AM

Animaps extends the My Maps feature of Google Maps by letting users create...
   - maps with markers that move,
   - images and text that pop up on cue, and
   - lines and shapes that change over time.
When users share their Animap with peers, and/or others, it appears like a video - they will be able to...
   - play,
   - pause,
   - slow and speed up the action!

Xerte Sandpit – where to next? | Jisc TechDis Blog | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
As a result of the Jisc TechDis service closing the TechDis Sandpit will no longer exist.

The TechDis sandpit has played an important role in providing practitioners with the power to demonstrate potential and persuade IT teams to install toolkits on local servers.

TechDis are keen that organisations or individuals new to Xerte Toolkits know how they can now get started with Xerte and grow into fully fledged installations. The main options available are listed below:

Find Public Google Docs

Google Docs and Google Drive don't offer the option to find public files, but you can do that using Google search. Now that the Google Docs robots.txt file allows search engines to index most of the public files, you should be able to find them, assuming that there are some links that point to them.

 

Search engines only index the files that are "public on the Web". By default, files are private, but you can change the visibility from the "Share" box.

 

Here are some useful queries that let you find public Google Drive/Docs files (you can append some keywords to the queries):

Tracking student blogs using Google Spreadsheets and Wordpress

Tracking student blogs using Google Spreadsheets and Wordpress | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"I’m currently teaching a first year module on Open Source Software, one of the requirements for which is students write their findings up as blog posts. For that reason I thought it might be useful to be able to keep track of how much my students have been writing. Given there are 80 students on the module, some automation here would also be useful!"

Free Technology for Teachers: Add Interactive Elements to Videos With TouchCast

Free Technology for Teachers: Add Interactive Elements to Videos With TouchCast | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"At the top of my list these days is an app called TouchCast. 

How many times have you watched a video where they point out a great resource only to say that you’ll come back to it later and never do? Or, have you ever shared a great resource and wanted to provide a variety of links for someone to choose from to extend their knowledge? It’s happened to me lots of times, and either I forget the links, or get distracted with something else whilst switching from one app to the other. TouchCast solves these issues by creating an app that merges the power of videos and the web into one."

Anthony Beal's insight:

Potentially an excellent app for video projects. Pull in other videos, live polls, web pages, charts etc. to allow interaction with your video.
