A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.


I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

Currently nanotechnology is mainly used to produce nanoparticles, or materials with very specific properties.  In the video http://youtu.be/mEH6tDLKcVU ;

the superhydrophobic coatings shown at the beginning are one example.  Graphene and carbon nanotubes are other nanoparticles with incredible potential in a variety of applications.

Un manera de subir presentaciones, escribir texto y que una voz profesional de voz a texto grabe la presentación. La cuenta libre permite hasta 15 slides por presentación. Me parece, interesante. Lo comparto.

Thanks to my good friend Dawn Gilmore for sending this to me. As soon as I can refine my dissertation into a few hours of defense....I'll work on a 2-minute project! Thanks Dawn!

8 Free Tools to Easily and Instantly Create Videos in The Cloud

Creating videos and using them with students in the classroom is an important skill of the 21st century teacher. Some educators wrongly think that making a video requires software download and advanced video editing skills, a claim which has been rebutted by web 2.0 technologies. There are now several online and web-based tools where one can easily and simply create a video and share it with others. These tools do not need any software installation and , most of the time, needs only a quick and free sign up.
