Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.
Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.
Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects.
Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.

Gust MEES: In 21st Century we are mostly looking for online tools and we forget about the best tool we can have, a book! Do you still know what a book looks like!?
I read a lot, must have +/- 1,000 books at home, not counting the magazines of different Topics... I am a Life Long Learner (Hashtag #LLL) and it is a pleasure for me to read a book, especially in summer time... I "eat" them actually, brain food ;)
I suggest to you to take a break from Internet and to read some times also a book and to use it as a tool also; thus meaning:
Read it quick, make some bookmarking, higlight the interested parts of it... write something (your ideas, thoughts...) close to the parts who made your interest and later on you read the book again, ONLY your personal remarks, highlited stuff and...
You will then remark how good a book is as a tool, an "Offline Tool"! OK, you won't be able to resell it (don't think for once at the commercial...), but at least you will have learned something and after a certain time when reading again as you might have a look on it for further researches (brain doesn't memorize everything...) your valuable remarks bring you back to your "old" thoughts and way for further thinking...!

BTW: these books are still "in" and will give you valuable information about the digital age of learning and how people are learning...

12 Tools for Quickly Gathering Informal Feedback from Students
This morning I'm again facilitating a workshop with Greg Kulowiec. At the start of the session we introduced three tools for quickly gathering informal feedback from students. The three that we introduced were Socrative, Poll Everywhere, and TodaysMeet. But there are many other tools for quickly gathering informal feedback from students.
Here are twelve tools that you can use to quickly gather informal feedback from students.
Here is the outline of the main ideas we developed below :
1- Advantages of Facebook in Education 2- Facebook Tips for Teachers 3- Ways Teachers Can Use Facebook 4- Educational Facebook applications for Students and Teachers 5- Facebook Groups for Teachers and Educators to join 5- Facebook Privacy Issues and how to Work on Them
Portal dedicated to kids, parents and teachers, offer stories, poems, games, activities, educational reference and much more. It's a fun zone, providing an informal learning center for children and families.
