I have heard people talk about Voicethread, but hadn't looked at it until a few days ago. I have an account and am anxious to try it.

WOW! Great Discovery

I am preparing for a session with the jr nursing students as they have created a blog for one of their classes. When I was looking at the Page Elements section to see what was available I discovered that a ton of options have been added. At this time the main categories are: News, Communication, Fun & Games, Finance, Sports, Tools, Lifestyle & Technology. Fun but another example of "Too Many Things" :)

And for those of you who are preparing for the GRE there is even a GRE word of the day in the Communication section!

Online Productivity Software

I love Google Docs. It is a great way to store and share documents.

Two other products to be aware of:
SlideShare - a great way to post a PowerPoint presentation on the web
SlideRocket - a great tool to create presentations

A URL for the web page that you created yesterday

If you want to post your web page to the web google docs will provide a url for you. It isn't perfect, but at least you will have a url that you can share with others (but it looks like they will need to log into their google account to access your site).

Here are the steps:
Click on upload and locate your saved .html file
Rename (if you want)
When the document opens click on "Share" then on "Publish as web page". A url for your page will be available. You can also preview your web page.

This web 2.0 tool - Sliderocket was just shared on our ACL listerv. It is really a powerpoint type presentation with a little excitement

Here is one way sliderocket was used to market the library I just signed up for the private beta -- not sure if it will be free or for a $, but I think it is pretty slick.

I think that we should create a little presentation to market the library. Anyone want to help with it?
