MLA Citation Templates: Easy Infographic for Students - EasyBib Blog

MLA Citation Templates: Easy Infographic for Students - EasyBib Blog | pdxtech-info | Scoop.it
“ We understand that it can be difficult (and sometimes confusing!) for students to piece together their MLA citations. That’s why we created an MLA format citation template for you to share, distribute, and/or post for your students. This infographic helps your students properly cite books, websites, online videos, online journal articles, and digital images in MLA format. While there are other variations for these citations, this template reflects the most common way to cite these source types. Whether you decide to use this in conjunction with a research project, place it on display in your classroom as a visual reference, or print it out so students can store it in their binders or notebooks is up to you. The possibilities are endless. We want your students to be responsible researchers, who acknowledge the work of original authors, which in turn prevents plagiarism. Hopefully, this template makes it easier for your students to achieve this goal. ”

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


Via Robin Good, Timo Ilomäki
Robin Good's curator insight, November 24, 2013 5:32 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.
