Introducing Google Calendar Labs - 0 views

  •  
    Google have just released some new (but experimental) functionality for calendars. I'm not convinced that I would actually find most of them useful...apart, perhaps from the next meeting or who's free functionality. Apparently there's now an experimental (again) API for building one's own calendaring apps.
  •  
    Who is is free is useful. The todo list tool is much better now

Google Asks Common Man "What is a Browser?" Common Man Has No Clue - 0 views

  •  
    This is kind of related to the conversations we've had lately about digital natives...there's lots of folks out there using the web but there's still only a few that understand what's going on underneath.
  •  
    Fun but ultimately quite thought provoking. Bloke from Google goes to Time Square to ask what a browser is. Less than 8% of people asked knew.

What Intrigues Me About Google Wave - 0 views

  •  
    Google's new communication tool due out in the autumn
  •  
    This is going to be big. There is a preview at the wave home page: http://wave.google.com/ (It's quite a long demo talk btw). It is in alpha at the moment and they've unusually announced it now to get developers on board before beta release in the autumn (does anything web 2.0-y ever get beyond beta these days?) as they're releasing it open source.

Create Your Syllabus With a Spreadsheet and a Calendar App - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 1 views

  •  
    The awesome ProfHacker with a step-by-step guide to quickly getting a bunch of dates into a Google calendar. The author is using it specifically in the context of a course syllabus, but I thought it might also be useful for putting in things like PGCAP dates.

  • The story of the frustrated student is the subject of a short video produced by students at Manchester Metropolitan University. The university is looking into alternative ways to communicate with students, specifically an SMS service in which messages are sent directly to students’ mobile phones. The system is incredibly simple: staff post a message to the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and if the message is urgent, the staff member begins the message with the keyword ‘urgent’. The next 160 characters are then sent as an SMS. It’s an opt-in system which students value - not least because they are more likely to receive the messages if they go straight to their mobile device.

    "Twitter Notes to PowerPoint from The Tablet PC Education Blog by noreply@blogger.com (The Tablet PC In Education Blog) NESI teachers find Dave Johnson's suggested ways to use Twitter improves classroom PowerPoint presentations. They use: 1. The add-on PowerPoint Feedback Slides to insert student feedback clouds with a presentation. They configure it, so they can moderate feeds before they post. 2. The real-time PowerPoint Twitter Ticker Bar at the bottom of the slide to display the last 10 tweets that match the PP slide. 3. The PowerPoint Twitter Voting function to student responses to teacher Qs on a PowerPoint slide. Twitter tallies the results and displays them as a bar or pie chart. 4. The PowerPoint Auto Tweet to push PowerPoint notes out to students via Twitter in real time, as teachers flip to each side. Teachers control what goes out by wrapping tweeted notes in twitter tags. Thanks, Dave, for pointing us to these Twitter functions. Kudos, Teachers for adapting them to classrooms. Johnson, D. Display Tweets in PowerPoint, Send PowerPoint Notes to Twitter. Heiny, R.

    Someone has made a rather natty map of the Mile End campus...this is really rather cool and far more useful than anything on the official web site.

    Thanks for posting this - it is perfect for Mind the Gap and I have put a link to it (under 'New to QMUL?) there.

    This is hilarious! I think anyone who has spent (too much?) time on forums can appreciate where the sentiment comes from! Maybe you should tag it with 'encouraging independent learning'... :P

Doodle: Easy Scheduling - 0 views

  •  
    Doodle helps scheduling meetings and other appointments. Doodle is simple, quick, free and requires no registration. Simply set up a poll, send a link to all participants, watch progress online, and finally choose the most suitable date.
  •  
    Very useful - much clearer and simpler than timebridge which I have used before- timebridge does have more sophistication and enables people to book appointments with you via google calendar - tried it,nobody did - story of my life
