Google puts pressure on Microsoft, launches Quickoffice for iPhone and Android

Google puts pressure on Microsoft, launches Quickoffice for iPhone and Android | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

Google launched its Microsoft Office substitute, Quickoffice, for Apple’s iPhone, Android smartphones and Android tablets, fulfilling a promise made in December.

The release on Tuesday follows the launch of Quickoffice for Apple’s iPad late last year, when a Google executive said that iPhone and Android versions “are on the way.” The move was also preceded by a February announcement that Google was baking the Quickoffice technology into both its Chrome browser and Chrome OS.

Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.

 

De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).

Google has made public a new service built on top of Google Hangouts and which allows qualified users to deliver online coaching and mentoring sessions on just about any topic. Either for free or for a fee. Google will handle payments and keep 20% of the compensation you receive.


From TheNextWeb: "Google is currently testing Helpouts — touted as “a new way to connect people who need help with people who can give help, over live video, anytime, anywhere”.


The new service will be tied into Google+ and it’s basically Google Hangouts: not with friends, but with teachers."

How to Share Content More Efficiently by Integrating Google Reader and Buffer

How to Share Content More Efficiently by Integrating Google Reader and Buffer | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

This piece is from Martin Geysler's collection - Social Media What We Think About it.

 

Excerpt:

 

If you subscribe to a lot of blogs and invest time in sharing useful content with your audience this workflow will help you streamline your process.

 

 

One of the most powerful dynamics of social media is the democratization of information. The more you can read, learn and share, the more value you should be able to extract from various digital channels.

 

Tapping into Web 2.0 to stay educated and informed is a labour intensive proposition.

 

**The tools are free but your time comes at a cost, so the more efficiently you can mange the process the better.

 

**If you subscribe to a lot of blogs (and other RSS feeds) and invest time in sharing useful content with your audience this workflow will help you streamline the process.

 

Before getting started there is one important caveat I need to mention.

 

**This is a broadcast tactic that will help you become more efficient at scheduling and sharing information. It’s one small piece of digital communication puzzle.

 

**To get the most out of social media you need to make connections and build relationships by engaging in real time. Enough said, let’s proceed.

I saw an article like this from Christopher Penn over the summer, he uses his iPad and flipboard to do this. I'm using buffer and find one of my best Twitter tools - if I can discipline my self to use it. The Chrome plugin helps a lot. But one of the things I've noticed is that I don't systemmatically read blogs as much as I did a few years back. Now, I look for particular Twitter lists, honed keywords, and specific sources. I need to get my discipline back around this ...
