Collect and Organize Learning Resources Into Embeddable Collections with Blendspace

Robin Good's curator insight, June 26, 9:16 AM



Blendspace is a web-based content curation tool, designed specifically for educators and teachers. Blendspace sits somewhere between Pinterest and Storify as its power and simplicity make it easy to search multiple sources, import content and visually display it and organize it into boards.


Its unique strength resides in:

  1. Multiple layout pre-sets
  2. Presentation-mode
  3. Collections are embeddable
  4. Easy drag/drop reorganization of boards
  5. Team collaborators (upcoming feature)
  6. Works across all computers and devices


Very easy and intuitive to use, makes the research and collection task intuitive, and organization, presentation and publishing very effective.


I really like how Blendspace works and the results it produces. If you are looking for visual tool to create collections of resources on a specific topic for your class or training program, I'd give Blendspace a try.

Use is very simple. As soon as you hit the vLine home page you are provided with a link to share with your contacts.Share the link, click GO, set a name for yourself and you are in. (Actually you need to wait at least for another person to join in, before you can see the conferencing room.) 


Invisible UI. Only basic commands, to pause audio, video or the entire call, that show just-in-time, when you need them.


Extremely easy to use. Works out of the box. Offers a simple and immediate foolproof solution to instantly videoconference for anyone having a good ADSL /broadband line. 


Best experience is with up to 4 simultaneous users.

Collaborative Free P2P Screen-Sharing for Macs and PCs with ScreenHero


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, November 24, 2013 2:32 AM


ScreenHero is a downloadable app for Windows and Mac computers that allows you to collaborate one-on-one on the same app with someone else at a distance.


ScreenHero has recently added full support for Windows PCs and it now integrates a voice feature allowing you also to talk with the person you are collaborating with.


Your login credentials and session data are fully encrypted using a P2P TLS scheme (SSL based).


ScreenHero operates as a P2P app, allowing parties to hook up directly to one another, and resorting to its centralized servers only when a direct connection is not possible for some reason.


My comment: An excellent screen-sharing tool for distributed teams. If you regularly operate with someone else at a distance and you need to easily and reliably share screens to see and edit drafts, mock-ups, presentations or code, ScreenHero is a great resource.


N.B.: If you are on a PC you will need a recent version of Windows, as PCs with Vista and earlier Windows versions are not supported.


Free version available.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

"Zeeik It" is a new bookmarklet from Zeeik, a video curation app, that allows you to easily collect and save into discrete collections all of the YouTube videos found on Twitter or on most any web page. 

Once collected you can pick the ones you want and easily trim them before saving them into a curated video collection.

 

Zeeik video collections are a good way to create valuable content that can be embedded in any article or guide and that can be served according to multiple categories and criteria as you can see from this specific example:http://zeeik.com/zeeik/-21828800  ;

(click "Cool Colors" or "Warm Colors").

 

You can find the new Zeeik It bookmarklet on the top right of the Zeeik home page here: http://zeeik.com/ ;

 

Free to use.

Appear.in is a new free P2P video group chat and collaboration web app allowing you to instantly create a meeting room where anyone can be invited easily. 


Appear.in leverages WebRTC technology now available via Chrome and Firefox latest browsers. The new technology allows for peer-to-peer direct collaboration with users connecting directly to each other without the need to go through centralized servers.


Screen-sharing, video and audio are all supported (the service is in full beta and it is possible that you will encounter bugs and issues in using it.)


Appear.in requires no registration, login or download. It's click and go from the very first time.


My comment: WebRTC looks very promising for real-time collaboration tools and appear.in is a live demonstration of it. Supereasy video conferencing without any tech hassles.

Curate All Your Open Browser Tabs with the Collectably Chrome Extension


Via Robin Good
more...
Robin Good's curator insight, August 23, 2013 10:51 AM



Collectably is a content curation web app which allows you to bookmark any web site and to organize it into visual collections. A unique Chrome extension makes Collectably particularly useful as it pioneers the ability to save all of your open tabs into a visual collection that you can immediately prune, organize visually and sub-divide into specific groups. 


This feature by itself is worth gold for any serious researcher or content curator as it allows to easily move from seeing just trees into seeing the whole forest and into organizing into logical groups for further work. Priceless.


If you frequently search and explore new information and tools online, I highly recommend it. It's that good.


Free to use.


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


Chrome extension and Bookmarklet: http://collectably.com/#/tools 


N.B.: You have by default a similar functionality available inside Firefox. It is called Group Tabs and you can activate it by goign to the View menu -> Toolbars -> Customize and by dragging the mosaic looking Tab Group icon into your browser top bar. 


Try it. It's excellent. The only difference with Collectably is that Group Tabs are private to you and not shareable on the web. 




Lila Hanft's curator insight, August 24, 2013 4:19 PM

If you use Chrome, you can collect several open tabs at once with this extension -- great way to save your place if you have to quite while in the middle of researching something, but also a good way to package disparate sources of information together.
