Image editing software

After reading the latest blogs I thought it was time to read some articles from my technology news feeds; one of which is PCWorld.com “Most popular downloads of the week”. Dare I say it; Google Picasa is one of the top ten downloads for the week. While I had read an article posted by Phillip Nichols on “How to do simple graphics editing with Picasa” back in February I had not got around to giving it a go. So when…

Google Personalized Home Page

Google Personalized Home Page

What I can not believe is that it has taken me so long to realise that I can set up my own personalized Google home page which I can view from any computer I am on. I feel a bit better in the knowledge that when I tell my friend about it, they also did not realise. Amazing something that was sitting right in front of me – and I did not see it. So I googled this morning information…

Update on popularity of Liam’s ToonDo comic

Update on popularity of Liam’s ToonDo comic

Unbelievable! All I can say is never work with kids. To encourage Liam to create comics using ToonDo I said I would post his comic on my blog and I even warned people to be nice as he is only 8. As it is his first adventure into making his own comics online today he was keen to see how many views his comic has had. Prior to this ToonDude had sent me an email letting me know that one…

Check out FORA.TV for enhanced online TV viewing!

Part of my daily routine is to quickly read posts from blogs that I subscribe using my Google Reader – this keeps me up-to-date with all things new and happening. One of the blogs I subscribe to is by written by a Gabriella Grosseck in Romania. While this may seem a bit crazy as Gabriella posts in Romanian (which I can’t read – and the online translators do not seem to translate the Romanian really well) I actually get a…

How I create my screen capture “how to” tips

How I create my screen capture “how to” tips

I know that one thing that some people like about my Mobile Technology in TAFE wiki is the pictures that explain “how to do” a particular step when using a software application. People from other countries have even asked if they can use them. If you want to make your own pictures, quick and easily, then I suggest you give the program I use a try. SnagIt allows me to take Screen captures, edit the pictures, add notes, call outs…

ToonDoo – Create your own Comics

ToonDoo – Create your own Comics

Yes, perhaps it may look like I have too much time on my hands but I am on holiday so decided to catch up on reading other people blogs. Over the last few weeks I have kept coming across people inserting cartoons in their blogs but had not paid it much attention until I went back and re-read What are holidays for anyway? (Obviously I am not the only who catches up on things during weeks off). So I followed…

Using Social Computing in Organisations

Using Social Computing in Organisations

Last week, Euan Semple and E-learning Networks Community Forum funded by the Australian Flexible Learning Framework, © Commonwealth of Australia 2007 were nice enough to grant me permission to create a video podcast from Euan’s online presentation on the use of social computing in organisations. Euan pioneered the use of blogs, wikis and online forums at the BBC and these tools continue to enable staff to work more effectively and more collaboratively across the entire organisation What got me thinking…

Mobile techology in TAFE is now blogging!

Mobile techology in TAFE is now blogging!

After much debate (with myself) I have finally decided to set up a blog site for Mobile Technology in TAFE for a number of reasons: My reluctance have stemmed from the fact that sometimes I feel overwhelmed reading blogs – however I have now solved this problem by managing my reading of blogs using Google Reader which I have found brilliant for keeping track of all the blogs I like to reader and I have inserted a Google Reader gadget…
