Storing Podcasts

At the Masterclass New Technology we should people how to upload files to the Internet Archive via a web browser using windows. It is quite a clunky process.
Much easier is to use the CcPublisherccPublisher is a tool that does two things: it will help you tag your audio and video files with information about your license and it allows you to upload Creative Commons-licensed audio and video works to the Internet Archive for free hosting. You also have the option of publishing the licensed and tagged audio works on your own site.

I made a movie of using the tool to ccpublisher_mac1.mov upload a mp3 Quicktime file 3.3 MB stored on the Internet Archive

eLive and the Scots Edu Blogosphere

eLive seemed to be a great success and was commented on all over the place (apologies for the unsorted list, it is on my list to fix)

ScotEduBlog Meetup


From the horse’s mouth:

The ScotEduBlog Meetup is open to anyone who wants to come, not just edubloggers. It might help if you know or want to know what a blog is, enjoy a drink and eating fine food.
Read on at the Meetup Wiki for more details and to take part in organising the event.
When?
May 24th, from 5.00pm until around 9.00pm and beyond
Where?
In Edinburgh, to coincide with the end of eLive!
First suggestions?:
The Jolly Judge pub for Guinness and Bordeaux, 5.00pm-7.00pm (free wifi)
Daniel’s Bistro, Leith, 7.30pm (no wifi, really good food and wine, about £12-15 a head, sample menu on their site)

Practical Blogging

At Stirling, a few people asked for practical examples of blogging being used by children. I’ve added background information to the Primary 7 Writing Blog so that teachers can see the thinking behind it and the practicalities of putting it into use. The link is here.
