Week 2: Free Your Bookmarks with Social BookmarkingThis has sparked some interesting activity and makes me think that the net effect of this kind of open course is a bit more interesting than I had thought. Take a look at the pages that are being tagged as part of the course - Work Literacy Ning Links. These are all coming from people participating in the course. But several of them are fantastic items that I had never seen before. They are also coming in somewhat categorized so that I can look at:
to find stuff that might be useful for next week's materials. Great stuff.
I also saw that several people have posted slideshare presentations embedded into the forums. Scroll down a bit on this page.
It's fun to have a group that is partly experience and partly new with social learning going on. I'm hoping that there will be a couple of good questions/examples that will emerge again this week that can get folks to do screencasts similar to what I did last week. Btw, if you pick up Jing, you can probably do it in under 10 minutes. It's fun to have a real problem to try to work on and then see how people try to address them.
This is a bit different than I expected and a whole lot of fun.
