Have had an encouraging turn out for the networked learning workshops lately. Today was webfeeds, which is probably the most important feature to know about in networked learning. The group looked at bloglines and how to use it to subscribe to multiple sources of regularly updated information - such as other teacher's blogs, student blogs, BBC news etc, the weather, the ski report, what ever. Basically, the use of web feeds in a service like bloglines enables us to take control of the types of information we want and need, and get rid of the rest. Newspapers are on their way out, and its about time.

Have a look at my Bloglines, and find things you think may be useful. If you also have an account with Bloglines, it will let you copy across my subscriptions as your own.

I didn't get to show another type of feed I have been quietly building, and that is a resource list of free, creative commons learning resources for each department. Here's a few examples for the people who came today:

Remember! Look for the RSS button at the bottom of these linked pages, and copy that link to your bloglines. Come to the tagging or finding digital resources workshops next week to learn how you could help build these resources...

Hopefully many of you are nearly ready to go the next step. To come up with a proposal that enables flexibility in teaching and learning your course or programme. Here's how, come and see me if you'd like to discuss things.
