Teams 3 & 4 – Please go into the google spreadsheet below and sign up to bring something for class next week (4/20). We decided to just go with general categories of Sweet, Salty and Drinks. That way you don’t have to specify exactly what you’re going to bring.
We’ve now gotten all but one of you in a custom Twitter list that you can use to keep track of what is happening with all of us. I used the Twitter List feature to add all of you … I noticed at least one of you has protected Tweets. Protected Tweets can keep lists from working perfectly, so I’d like to encourage you to potentially open your Twitter updates up while you are in the class. The list is located at:
Also, we need to decide on a hashtag for the semester. A hashtag lets people easily mark a tweet to be about a specific event. A lot of times you’ll see tweets that have “something” after it … that #something is a hashtag. For our course we will use #ci597 as our hashtag. So find the list, start posting, and don’t forget the hashtag!
Please leave a comment to this post related to the food and drink you’ll contribute to the final class.
Please sign up for the TLT Tag Team. This is the stuff we’ll be asking for you to be helpful with:
- Tag your photos [Flickr]
- Tag your writing [blogs@PSU]
- Tag your web sites [del.icio.us]
- Tag your activity [Twitter]
- Tag yourself [stickers]
Hi all … Bart Pursel from the College of Information Sciences and Technology will be in class on Thursday to talk to you a bit about virtual worlds and how they play out in a learning landscape. Bart maintains a blog that you might want to take a look at it. He also passed a link along to a PDF he’d like you to skim over. It should be a fun and interesting discussion, so please try to come ready to participate.
Just a quick note to let people know to beware that the default when creating a blog post on MT4 is published (pull down menu in “Publishing” section. So, if you are typing something as a draft or for yourself that you don’t want published make sure and select unpublished in the status menu.
Can you please leave a comment on this post (at the course blog site, not at Pligg) if you are still having problems with Pligg. The one issue I am most interested in fixing is the problem we’ve seen wit ha couple people’s posts coming in being attributed to someone else. If this is still happening let me know in the comments. Thanks!
I just wanted to let you all know that the Blogs at Penn State toolset is now working with visitor comments. If you want to turn on commenting, you can follow the directions here:
