A Short Review and Guide to EDU2.0 E-Learning Platform:

Another e-learning platform on the net that serves as a virtual classroom is EDU2.0.

 

 

In EDU2.0, when you create your account, you will be registered as an individual that has at least four (4) positions. You can be an administrator, teacher, parent, and student. The interface of EDU2.0 is a bit complicated at first due to there are many options that you can do in it. The EDU2.0 offers almost all the works/ activity that you are going to do in your classroom (for teachers)/ school (for administrators).

Connect and Relate Your Ideas with Mind Mapping!

Showing pictures, reading phrases or simply deriving equations is somewhat vague or ambiguous for sometimes to our students most especially when they cannot visualize the relation of what we wanted to share or teach them. Even in a good presentation, when a presenter could not relay the topic from its context the objective will not be achieved. 
 
An online tool that I found in the net that somewhat can help solve this scenario is the use of Mindmeister. A tool used to create a concept map.
 
 
You can easily share your mind maps because Mindmeister offers integration of most used social network site like Twitter, Facebook Google account and Evernote. It can also be used in collaboration. It has a feature to share your work with your colleagues and students by simply inviting them via email or by giving giving them the link of your work. The good thing is, you can work with your collaborator in real time. Each color is assign to a user in order to easily identify them. Don’t be bothered to open a new window for chatting since mindmeister has an integrated chatboard in it for users to use. In this way, you can have a brainstorming out of what you are doing.

Have Your Own Soundtrack with UJam!

Having troubled looking for a soundtrack or background music for your presentation? or You seems to watch silent movie or video of your creation? Hard to find for a creativecommon audio file that fits your work? or simply, you love music? Try UJam!

I was once looking for a music that fits my presentation in my class and I was so afraid to just download music from the net or use soundtracks from copyrighted audio files. I also had problems with my students when they ask me what should be their background in their movies when I tell them that they are not allowed to use music or soundtrack which are creativecommons and not permitted to use by authors. Good to find something like this.

Download Video in Different Formats

Sharing, linking, embedding, presenting video to our students is a good way to enhance learning. Students are more motivated and gain interest on lessons when they watch video. However, watching streaming video from Youtube, Vimeo or other video sites is somewhat disappointing when the internet speed is so slow and the video stops and shows buffering. The best solution is to download the video first and insert it in your presentation (make sure you are to download only creative commons).
 
Looking for the right format of a video you need to download is a challenge. Most especially when your media player plays a definite or only several format. Keepvid.com is a search and download engine that helps you find several format of a certain streaming video that you want to watch.

Three Great URL Shorteners

Sharing is fun and exciting! Today’s generation, enjoy sharing files, media, notes, webpage, blogs, URL and other stuffs over the internet. Social networking sites are flooded with links from their various users, even in different web communities or blogsites where netizens’/ bloggers’ post. However, copying the links of what we like to post and share are somewhat very annoying because of the length of these links. Especially when you have a very little space for URL add to paste on. For teacher who usually writes on the board will not dare to write too long URL address. It is very impractical to do so. URL shortener is the solution to this problem.


I would like to share with you three most often URL shortener that I use in my class or when I post something in the net. These three URL shorteners are goo.gl, tinyurl and bitly.
