Twitters way more than telling people what you’re doing! The key to “getting twitter” lies in using it effectively. Fortunately besides being a RSS power user I’m also well known as a T ..read more

Our last post showed how to upload videos directly into your blog plus linked to tutorials on creating your own videos. I love teaching people how to create digital stories and videos because it’s a skill that most learners, regardless of age, enjoy learning and experimenting with and are more likely to spend time perfecting their skills in their own time. A great way of engaging even the most reluctant educator to use technology. However, there are so many videos available online, on so many different topics, that it’s sometimes more effective to use ‘others videos’ than create your own video ..read more

This is the next post in our “blog makeover” series that provides an excellent opportunity to respond to a reader’s suggestion to include an image using HTML in a page or sidebar.

It means you can embed photos in your sidebar, link to pages on your blog or other websites, write text using bold and italics, for example. What is HTML?

Fantastic news! Our Getting More Out of Widgets! post inspired community members to make adjustments or add extra widgets to their blog, plus motivated some to do “blog makeovers”.

Crazy idea, I know, but it might be fun for you to offer to do that to a blog and as a teaching tool for the rest of us. What an excellent idea Larry and here’s the best news! As you asked for assistance, we choose your blog for the makeover and will be writing a series of posts o ..read more

So we’ve tried our best to explain what is RSS and why it’s important to learn how to use. And as we said it’s hard to explain probably because the power of RSS is really something you need to experience first hand.

Remember that using RSS is a simple and effective way of keeping in touch when new information is added to a website without having to visit the site; instead information is brought to one loca ..read more
