Tweet Jukebox - Thinking Inside the Box
John Dalziel's insight:

Tweet Jukebox is a free scheduling tool that allows practitioners to...
● load a “jukebox” with content,
● schedule when they want tweets to go out and then
● sit back and let it do the job for you.
Practitioners can create more than one jukebox, load them with thousands of tweets and then send out as many as 100 tweets per day (I doubt they would want to do that but, it's possible!).
Accounts come preloaded with two jukeboxes, one with photo content and one with quotes, to get users started.
Users have the option to tweet jukebox content once, regularly or until a specific date.
The scheduling engine is very flexible e.g. users can set a time for each tweet to go out, depending on user engagement.
NOTE: Although Tweet Jukebox allows users to set schedules for different times on different days of the week. When it runs out of content, it automatically starts tweeting again from the beginning.
Tweet Jukebox also lets users track who has mentioned them. This can be visualized by the tweets themselves, or shown in a graph format.
It's possible to choose from mentions in the last 7 days, 30 days, month or previous month.
Another feature is the ability to thank up to 50 users every Friday.

One to consider for Learner Engagement with On-Line and/or other courses.

Appointlet is an Appointment Scheduling Tool Built For Google Calendar.


Many Learning Provider Stakeholders have to deal with making appointments and then logging them into a calendar so they can actually remember to keep them.


There are easier ways.


Appointlet is one that those stakeholders may want to take a closer look at.


Appointlet lets those wishing to make appointments to use the web hosted applet to see the calendar and schedule an appointment with individuals (Selected from a list).


They can look at availablility, and with a couple of clicks add their name to the selected schedule. 


The biggest plus is the integration with Google Calendar.


When a client schedules an appointment with an individual, it will automatically show up in their calendar.

Buffer for Firefox :: Add-ons for Firefox

Buffer for Firefox :: Add-ons for Firefox | technologies |
Buffer’s Browser extension for Firefox gives users the real power to use Buffer to...
* set a schedule once and then let all Buffer tweets get published - based on the daily schedule; tweets will be spread out over the day so users will never overwhelm their followers.
* drop links into the Buffer account
* the Buffer App tool queues them for future publishing. This way users can still enjoy spontaneous tweeting without stuffing their Twitter stream with multiple updates, within a short period of time.

Also, whenever users are reading an article, they can click on the Buffer icon and get the title of the page and a shortened link; they can then add it to their Buffer.

My Study Life

My Study Life | technologies |
A free cross platform planner app for students, teachers and lecturers designed to make your study life easier to manage.
John Dalziel's insight:

MyStudyLife is a Learner Planner for All Platforms, which could provide an excellent service for learners if they get into the habit of using it to keep track of their assignments.
My Study Life allows learners to organise...
   - their classes,
   - tasks and exams
...and never forget a lecture or assignment again
When learners start using the app they...
   - have to enter their courses, then
   - start to enter tasks into each course.
Each task is assigned a due date.
The My Study Life homepage shows them the tasks that have due dates approaching.
Whether or not MyStudyLife will help learners will be determined by whether or not they get into the habit of using it.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention it's free.

Buffer is a smarter way to Tweet

Buffer is a smarter way to Tweet | technologies |
Buffer helps you tweet more consistently by allowing you to choose set times to tweet each day. Once you've chosen the times, you simply keep a 'buffer' of tweets topped up and the application will automatically tweet on your behalf.
