Jim Buckingham and Vance Stevens follow up on this conversation:
Vance: ever used Google Cloud Connect? http://tools.google.com/dlpage/cloudconnect
James: no.. not familiar with it..
Vance: Nellie was raving about it last night http://learning2gether.pbworks.com/2011spring
James: .. strange that I haven’t seen it..
Vance: sounds similar to One Note
James: is it in Beta ..
Vance: not sure, but you can google for the blog with the info http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2011/02/google-cloud-connect-for-microsoft.html
James: ok… shall do..
just found Jane Hart’s new course on Social Media.. that is starting today
its on her new concept learning platform.. http://shareandlearn.co.uk/
thought that if you hadn’t caught wind of it.. that you’d want to know about it.
Vance: I was just googling for those links
Vance: yeah, ok, got them
James: another key link
Vance: I don’t see the … ah that one has the link to the course http://c4lpt.co.uk/shareandlearn/register/
James: yeah.. it was the only link that I found to access the course..
Share&Learn is a social and collaboration platform that
supports and enables informal and social learning
but which can also be used to track formal learning (i.e. courses) where required.
Vance: wouldn’t Moodle or Bb (properly implemented) do that?
James: hmmm… not sure what Jane Hart would say to that..
am curious to know why its catching the eye of others
Vance: depends on what her platform is actually like
Vance: You’re full of good links today
James: happy to do so..
it’s my quota for May.. have to use it up quick..
Vance: this last link harks to Jay Cross’s Internet Time Alliance http://internettimealliance.com/wp/ and to Harold Jarche, whom I actually connected with at a PI earth day mashup event, right here at the PI, 2 years backhttp://advanceducation.blogspot.com/2009/04/learntrends-in-global-learn-day-april.html
Vance: and Leigh Blackall is writing interesting takes on ubiquitous learning; e.g.http://leighblackall.blogspot.com/2011/03/who-owns-schools-ubiquitous-learning.html andhttp://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Ubiquitous_Learning_-_a_critique and threatening to regale us with them on L2gether
James: I sense that its providing a tool rich environment for people to connect with first, socialize, share common interests.. and then design what they want to learn..
Vance: now you’ve just described second life
James: now you’ve got me curious .. need to check’em all out..
Vance: I think what would be interesting would be to have all these areas linked together so students could pursue the modality they prefer
hey why don’t we get together this sunday and discuss this topic
James: yeah.. its starting to feel like a buffet .. where one is spoiled for choice
ok…. then there we go..
have registered to join Jane’s site.. to take in the Social Media course..
Vance: this will give me some incentive to check out this course and report back on Sunday
James: supposed to start today..
Vance: yeah, we report back on Sunday
James: that’ll make two of us..
gotta get back to my real job ..
Vance: ok, thanks for the chat
we’ll meet on Sunday
signing up for the course now …
