LESS TIME. LESS EFFORT. MORE AWESOME.

Canvas demands half the time and half the effort while giving you and your students twice the awesome. (All numbers are unscientific approximations. After all, how exactly do you measure awesome?) It’s our goal at Canvas to make teaching and learning easier and part of that is wasting less of your time and effort trying to get your LMS to do what it should just do.

The most noticeable design change is that the app's main navigation bar has been moved to the bottom of the screen, replacing the old navigation bar at the top of screen. The new design also eliminates the tool bar that slid out from the left-hand side of the app in the old version.

DebateGraph | Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

description by Internet Scout Project

 

DebateGraph states, "to change the world you need to look at it in a different way." Many would agree; this platform gives multiple partners the ability to visualize and share different ideas. It's a neat concept and it's one that has been used by the United Kingdom's Foreign Office and CNN. A helpful "how-to" area can get users started and the application allows visitors to link ideas visually via a very easy-to-use interface. This version of debate graph is compatible with all operating systems

4 Awesome Google Products Cheat Sheets for Teachers : a collection of useful shortcuts for #g+ #googledocs #search | Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

The folks in Google know that the secret to continuity and distinction is innovation. It is pretty hard to become popular but it's harder to keep your popularity amidst a stormy wave of strong competitors. Google has been deeply immersed in renovating and improving its services and sometimes the need to out-excel others drives it to take out products that no longer perform well. This is part of Google's policy: success or perish.

We all use a variety of Google's products from Gmail to Google Plus and the more we use them the better we become at tapping into their potential. Knowing how to quickly find your way around Google's services is a prerequisite for increasing your productivity and enhance your use of these services. Below is a collection of useful shortcuts for popular Google products that you can bookmark and use whenever needs be. Enjoy

Connected eucators can treat this list as a checklist (yep, use this one, ditto that :-). The trends are interesting:

 

Twitter retains its no 1 position for the 5th year runningGoogle Drive/Docs moves up to #2.PowerPoint moves up to #5.Evernote moves into the top 10 at #6.Google + and Hangouts moves into the top 10 at #10.There are 10 new tools on the list topped by Feedly (an RSS reader/aggregator) at #19 and Coursera (a MOOC platform) at #38, and 3 returning tools to the list, including Storify at #58.The highest movers within the list are Skydrive (Windows file storage area) at #43 up 55 places since last year, and Keynote and iMovie up 40 and 32 places respectively (showing the increase in popularity of Apple software).A significant descent down the list for some tools including Google Sites (down 60 places) and Wikispaces (down 50 places).Tools moving off the list include Google Reader (now retired by Google), Bing and Scribd.Although the list is still dominated by free online social tools, a number of e-learning authoring tools have had a good showing this year.As for trends over the last 5 years, it is interesting to note that Firefox (#1 in 2007) is now at #97 on the list, and Delicious (#1 in 2008) is now at #60.  What will topple Twitter from the top of the list?

7 Really Simple Tips To Manage Your Files And Folders On Google Drive

7 Really Simple Tips To Manage Your Files And Folders On Google Drive | Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

Sometimes it is easy to disregard something that’s available and accessible for free. Google Drive fits that bill. It’s there connected like a relationship to whatever we do with Google. Just like a relationship, we don’t realize its value till we really make the effort to get close and personal. One of the ways is to understand how to manage files and folders on Google Drive. It is simple stuff really, but still something that needs a few tips to perk up our interest about it.

There’s a lot you can do with 15GB of free storage. You can do a lot more when you consider that Google Drive is a productivity suite. You can use Google Drive for research or you can use Google Drive for any creative use. But ultimately, managing it well means knowing how to handle all the files and folders you will keep on the cloud. These tips should help.

As Google Moves Away From Keywords, Can You Optimize For Gist?

As Google Moves Away From Keywords, Can You Optimize For Gist? | Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications | Scoop.it
Today, keywords still play a significant role in search habits, and in how Google and other search engines deliver search results. The trend, however, is …

..

Google’s Matt Cutts proclaimed, “It’s another step away from raw keywords (without knowing what those words really mean) toward understanding things in the real-world and how they relate to each other. The knowledge graph improves our ability to understand the intent of a query so we can give better answers and search results.”

SInce then, Google has made numerous enhancements to the Knowledge Graph, and has tweaked its algorithm in other ways that would seem to indicate a decreased dependence on keywords. In fact, there have probably been a number of changes related to this that we don’t even know about because Google stopped publishing their monthly lists of algorithm updates for some reason.

Then there’s search-by-voice and conversational search.

Google put out a pretty interesting Webmaster Help video this week in which Cutts discusses voice search’s impact on searcher behavior. In response to the question, “How has query syntax changed since voice search has become more popular?” Cutts talks about the trends that Google is seeing.

Serres: ”Auslagerung des Kopfes” - Personen - Wortgefecht | Michael Gisiger | Social Business Training & Beratung | Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications | Scoop.it
Das Internet erleichtert uns das Leben', schwärmt der achtzigjährige Michel Serres. In jungen Jahren hatte der Philosoph den Durchbruch des neuen Mediums Radio erlebt. Auch Serres kommt leicht ins Schwimmen, wenn er die Zukunft der vernetzten Gesellschaft beschreiben soll. 'Ich bin nicht sicher, dass das Buch tot ist, aber jene, die es beweinen, erinnern mich an die Sorbonne-Professoren, die Lateinisch sprachen und den Buchdruck bekämpften, weil sie um ihre Macht fürchteten.' Vor Gutenberg waren die Studenten gezwungen, die Werke auswendig zu lernen. 'Der Buchdruck hat unser Gedächtnis zerstört, auf der Festplatte hat es wieder einen Ort gefunden.' Serres nennt es die 'Auslagerung des Kopfes'. Heute hat jeder einen Drucker zu Hause. Das Internet, ahnt Michel Serres, wird die Gesellschaft radikaler verändern, als es der Buchdruck vermochte. Er vergleicht seinen Durchbruch mit der Erfindung der Schrift, als unsere Geschichte begann."
