Robert Schuwer's curator insight, June 6, 2013 2:07 AM

The license is the same as that used by Udacity, being the most restrictive CC-license. But hey, it's better than completely closed ;-). In the terms of use of Futurelearn, a student has to register and comply to a code of conduct similar to that used by Coursera (e.g. no cheating). It seems EdX will be the most open of the Big Three, although currently most of the courses are not (yet?) published under a CC-license.

What is impressive about this setup are at least two things: 1) It is reasonbly priced at around $200 US and 2) it is highly portable. If you don't have a screen, find a white or light colored wall and go for it.

Robin Good's curator insight, August 24, 2013 7:08 AM



HangoutMagix is a free web app which allows you to create the graphics elements to make your live sessions inside Google Hangouts look more professional.  


With HangoutMagix you can create an overlay bar with your name and title, add a call-to-action and display the name of your show with its logo.


The tool is very simple and intuitive to use. You select the graphic element you want to personalize, edit the text, change the colors, select a style among the pre-set ones and you are ready to save a transparent .PNG file that you can then import into Google Hangouts interface.


Free to use.


Try it out now: http://hangoutmagix.com/

This is a great recommendation by Robin Good on graphics for Google Hangouts. Hangouts are taking off and using graphics to spruce up the hangout for calls to action or logo/display has great impliations for adding value. I will check this out and pass it along.

Competition is always good if you are a consumer so it's great to see another option for sharing in addition to Dropbox. The additional free storage in Copy in comparison to Dropbox could be a winner though perhaps the more important consideration is that Copy offers another space in which to backup important files.

iTeach: The best 1:1 device is good teaching | Media & Learning | Scoop.it

The best device a school can roll out is a teacher who can adapt to new and emerging technologies, does not always require formal training for learning and staying current, and is not tethered to a product in order to teach.

Sue Osborne's curator insight, May 26, 2013 10:19 PM

Yes yes yes!  Why do many teacher-librarians persist in demanding that their PD always take place during school hours? If you want to develop YOURSELF professionally, shouldn't you be taking every opportunity you can afford? If you can read a tabloid in your own time, you can find time to read a professional journal too - simple things can make a huge difference! Manage your own professional development, don't expect your school or your union to do it for you! Good teachers and librarians are learning all the time, and sharing their learning - with colleagues and with students.

Sue Osborne's comment, May 26, 2013 10:23 PM
I love the comments about professional development not always being done in school hours. If it's worth doing, it's worth doing. Period.
