ETT32 was an exciting show for us... lots of guests, less work for us. First we were joined by Ben Werdmuller. of elgg. He told us all about the upcoming 0.4 release of elgg and a gave us a few hints of what is on the elgg horizon. We then covered some edtech news, and were visited by some people from nuvvo a new, free online LMS. Our last guest was Graham Stanley who committed, during the show, to starting a new live EFL call in show. We'll be waiting Graham.
ETT 31 was our first show back after a long break. We took the opportuntiy to cover some edtech news including an unheard of three thumbs up from Jeff for Blogbridge. We were visited by Erin and Barbara our correspondents who gave us the skinny on Podcastercon. We were also very fortunate to be visited by Clarence Fisher and we talked about leadership and his leap-frog idea of teacher training. All that and our first edublogosphere roundup and our hopes and projects for 2006. Check. It. Out.
