Vance Stevens and James Buckingham talk about Jane Hart’s new course on Social Media

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.

http://c4lpt.co.uk/handbook/index.html

Vance:  I was just googling for those links

Vance:  yeah, ok, got them

James:  another key link

http://c4lpt.co.uk/workingsmarter/index.html

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..

interesting concept..

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

James:  check out http://niclaycock.blogspot.com/2011/05/tipping-point-in-learning-share-and.html

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

James:  cool..

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 …
