Robin Good: Keemix is a web publishing service which allows anyone to create their own web magazine by easily capturing and editing content already available on the web. 

 

You can create multiple channels/topics covering different topics/interests, share items on social networks and have a personalized Keemix web site with your custom look.

 

From the official site: "Keemix allows you to gather loved content from the web, mix it into your own custom-designed pages, and share it to inspire your friends and colleagues.

 

Mixes can be private or public, and administrated individually or collaboratively.


Keemix is tightly integrated with all major social networks and broadcasts your content through feeds or newsletters, helping you reaching like-minded individuals."

Upload and Share All Your PDF and PowerPoint Presentations With This New SlideShare Alternative: SlideOnline

Upload and Share All Your PDF and PowerPoint Presentations With This New SlideShare Alternative: SlideOnline | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free and simple alternative to SlideShare you may want to give a look to this new free presentation sharing service which allows you to upload PowerPoint and PDF files without much hussle.

 

Presentations can be viewed in full screen, shared on social media, tagged and categorized, and made available for download if so desired.

 

The service looks clean, simple to use, and promising. (I needed one).

 

Note: Just to warm-up their engine and see how it reacted, I have uploaded both a 74MB .PPT and a 2Mb one. The first one reached its end but then nothing showed up while the smaller file gave me no problems at all. Here is the uploaded presentation:  

http://slideonline.com/presentation/116-design-delle-informazioni-test-slides (it's a test file)
 

Examples of other uploaded presentations: http://slideonline.com/presentation/latest ;


Free to use.

 

N.B.: There is hardly any information on the site, "About", and "Learn More" links are not working, so be prudent before uploading your whole library here.

Update: As I have just learned from a timely email (who wrote me as  am writing this very Scoop - without knowing it) from Julian working on the development team, the only reason is that the service is just brand new... so, just give them time... and lots of feedback.

 

Try it out now: http://slideonline.com/  ;

Instructor Presence in the Online Class – Key to Learner Success

Instructor Presence in the Online Class – Key to Learner Success | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

"Instructor presence in the online environment can be elusive as a shadow – it’s one dimensional, monochromatic and takes on various forms depending upon the point of view. Yet, instructor presence in online learning communities is vital to ‘complete learning’.... In the virtual environment the instructor needs to be ‘real’, 3-dimensional, have a personality, be the subject matter expert and as if this isn’t enough, help the student achieve the learning goals in this virtual space."
