Has anyone looked at Expo LX or any of the other tools produced by LearningObjects.com? I came across it at IoE Learning Technology Unit. It currently only integrates with Blackboard though the website states that integrations with Moodle and other systems are “on the roadmap”. It’s essentially a tool for creating personal sites including blogs with permissions built-in so it can be used for eportfolios. It might also be of interest to the web team for personal & group sites e.g. for academics, researchers & research groups.
I’m going to download & take a look. No, I’m not, it only appears to come as a Bb building block, so forget that!
Also on the LTU site were some ‘technology tasters’ which included this list of educational uses for wikis which is better than the one I had for our last workshop!
There is a new LSE4You blog run by the ‘eDevelopment’ team, which I guess is a new name for an old team, certainly new to me. There is also a Suggestions board. To get to the board you have to pass through the “LSE Authentication Service”. The blog is WordPress but I’m not sure what’s behind the board.
I am sitting in a plenary at the ALT-C conference in Nottingham, listening to Michelle Sellenger’s interesting talk. The talk is also being webcasted using e-lluminate. I can watch Michelle on e-lluminate as well as live (and blog)
What really strikes me is that for the first time in my experience, I am sitting in a really large conference, the wireless is working fine as is all of the technology and we can actualy do, without any hassle, all the things speakers are describing.
