Photos from the E-showcase12

Here are a few images from the very successful and superbly organised day at William Angliss Conference centre on 22 June 2012.
I'm quite impressed with the features of the photo uploader and photoshow tool at the Learn Local NING,  I'll grab the Embed code and see if I can share the Photoshow here.

Well, it's worked: though as with all trials, there are a few hiccups. I'm not sure why the images autoplay in reverse order, and the captions have disappeared. Oh well, you can drop by the Learn Local e-learning network (AKA ACE NING) at: http://acenetwork.ning.com/ to view them properly.

e-showcase: follow from your desk

If you didn't make it to the e-learning showcase today, you can follow the twitter feed using the "hashtag" #eshow12
Ie: via this link

(I think)

Or, failing that, try this one: http://visibletweets.com/#query=%23eshow12&animation=2
A very novel tool for displaying all the tweets with a particular hashtag!
Thanks Michael and Leo

Here's a sample: 
I know how you feel, Dale. If there was a second ipad to win, you'd deserve to win it as much as me.... JK

"Advanced wikispaces skills" session challenges presenters!

Jill and michael ran a session on the advanced aspects of wikispaces. Clearly nobody feels "advanced", because we were alone in the session.

However, we thought that some skills were worth demonstrating anyway. So we went ahead, intending to record the presentation for possible future value, and also to share some tips & strategies with each other.

Here's the menu we started with:

The large menu was designed to give people a choice (too much for one session) ..so we decided to focus on only 3 of the skills.

Okay the hilarious thing for us was that whatever we tried to demonstrated (for the recording), had changed since we last worked it out.
