I liked this video because it revised the key concepts of learning theories.  It also highlighted my journey so far of how I have learnt from the internet.  Up till this course, I was very much learning cardiology from textbooks and now I have discovered the rich resources available from the internet.

BeamAir app for iOS enables you to share your presentations or just images with remote viewers. In addition, you can draw on your slides in real time, snap and send an instant photo. The images are available only as long as your session lasts, afterwards they are deleted from the servers.

Around the Corner @MGuhlin Cobbling Together an LMS: Towards Self-Directed Learning | Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it
...cutting-edge learning environments that allow learners to be self-directed are where it is at. I sense a mountain of resentment when I'm told to learn something, to use ONE technology (e.g. paper-n-pencil, computer, iPad, whatever) but when I'm invited to explore, to make my own connections with a text, with ideas, I'm inclined to blog it, to curate content, to do more with various devices.
