[daf] yes, I think it was the message I got too
[JeffLebow] try world bridges
[JeffLebow] Only recognizes dictionary words

[Scott_in_Tokyo] It is a fun way to keep track of outbound clicks from your blog
[buthaina] Robin Good mentioned it and recommended it..I have downloaded the program but not tested or played with it yet

[buthaina] just heard the result i got from podscope, Jeff..this is neat; thanks Jeff
[Scott_in_Tokyo] both URLs go to the same place
[JeffLebow] edtechtalk.opml
[sus_denmark] this is my major reason for not starting to experiment with linux
[Scott_in_Tokyo] ubuntu can be installed on either a PowerPC mac or an intel PC.
[sus_denmark] it looks so scary!
[JeffLebow] http://www.bloglines.com/blog/edtechtalk
[sus_denmark] OPML?
[JeffLebow] http://www.answers.com/opml
[Dennis] Thanks for the EdTechTalk bloglines page.
[aiden] OPML- collection of RSS feeds connected to edtech.com
[daf] I get this message trying to subscribe to My Yahoo: Could not find the RSS you asked for
[Scott_in_Tokyo] outline processor markup language - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPML
[aiden] thanks Scott
[Scott_in_Tokyo] OPML was created by Dave Winer, the same guy who invented RSS
[Dennis] Thanks for the OPML links.
[sus_denmark] yes, just imagine!
[Dennis] Just imagine indeed!
[daf] I have subscribed Edtechtalk to my iTunes :-)
[Dennis] Good idea, Daf. I haven't done that yet.
[Scott_in_Tokyo] The internet's number one curmudgeon: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Winer
[daf] that's right, Jeff
[sus_denmark] I had a new book about podcast solutions that looks very helpful, by Michael Geoghegan and Dan Klass, bit above my actual level
[sus_denmark] published by friendsoft
[daf] I am going to have my graduate students subscribe to edtechtalk :-)
[sus_denmark] and I am going to listen your students I hope, Daf :-)
[Dennis] I agree, Jeff, about the "test drive" idea.
[daf] yes, you will, Sus :-)
[JeffLebow] http://www.usca.edu/education/MEdTech/portfolio/portfolio.shtml
[sus_denmark] Dave, sounds like a great idea

[Scott_in_Tokyo] is portfolio a place for showpiece work or works in progress?? ;) ;) ;)

[Jeff_in_Ann_Arbor] or is it an arena for communication and organization
[daf] they select their best pieces of work
[Dennis] Who wrote the rubric for portfolio evaluation?
[daf] I just open a forum in Moodle for each student and use it as a portfolio
[Scott_in_Tokyo] good idea Daf!
[Scott_in_Tokyo] The business of America is business!!
[Dennis] Question from WiA chat: Why aren't the USCA campuses into distance ed?
[Jeff_in_Ann_Arbor] What ever the name as long as there is reflection, revision, sharing and engagement/investment
[Scott_in_Tokyo] are the webheads still chatting at Tapped IN??
[Dennis] Yes, Scott.
[Dennis] Some are, anyway.
[sus_denmark] would be interesting to find out what it takes for people to work as gree agents instead of emplyers
[sus_denmark] Free agents, I mean, or the older term free lance workers
[Dennis] Thanks for this session, Jeff. Kamsahamnida!

[leebaber] Thanks Dennis!
[daf] I am very bad at using Flash
[daf] lol
[Dennis] Ah, yes. Reminds me of Carl Sandburg: If we had some ham, we could have ham and eggs if we had some eggs.
[Scott_in_Tokyo] ;)
[Jeff_in_Ann_Arbor] Glad to hear this discussion a early El software, Kid Pix, exports as a movie and to my surprise exports as Flash
[Jeff_in_Ann_Arbor] I was wondering why
[daf] lol, Dennis
[guest479] it shoudln't be legal to export to flash... i thought it was licensed...
[daf] I think I am getting old for multitasking :? :?
[Jeff_in_Ann_Arbor] Could have the Kid Pixx software licencsed it as it is in the Menu Toolbar lIst
[leebaber] Yes, it is me Dave.
[daf] can we get the chatlogs of these sessions?
[Jeff_in_Ann_Arbor] THis share option is for When a student exports a multimedia project, image and sound to share
[JeffLebow] Yes
[JeffLebow] Chat logs will be posted right after the show
[Scott_in_Tokyo] http://www.edactive.com/readingcamp/
[Jeff_in_Ann_Arbor] I was playing with it to convert student classroom work to upload in a portfolio or repository.
[daf] that's what I love in DW
[daf] I create a template and it takes care of all the pages
[daf] but you need a server to host it
[leebaber] oops , I got disconnected...
[leebaber] can you ring me?
[Dennis] Thanks for the clarification on moodle.org and moodle.com .
[JeffLebow] Tried calling, but failed
[leebaber] Let me reboot skype again...brb
