Oh boy – EkoBoys!
February 3, 2008

A very nice outcome of being part of our 23 Things project in the Stockholm Public Libraries is that lots and lots of collegues share cool photos and videos that one probably wouldn’t find elsewhere.

This one, for example, shared by Lars (whose son sings in the video!):

(well, this video most likely WILL be found in many places quite soon, because it’s a good tune with a decent message!)

Se upp Marratech och Adobe Connect – hĂ€r kommer WizIQ!
January 26, 2008

Mycket bÀttre LMS Àn Marratech och helt i klass med det smidiga (men dyra) Adobe Connect.

Helt i Flash och i webblÀsaren (ingen separat programvara att ladda ner som skapar krÄngel i nÀtverk)

VÀldigt mycket mer 2.0 (=kollaborativt). Och lÀtt att komma igÄng. Och gratis!

Plötsligt kĂ€nns Marratech sĂ„ 90-tal…

ONLINE EDUCA 2007 – Sputnic Seminar: Promoting Collaboration Through New Educational Technologies
November 29, 2007


Yesterday was the first day – or rather pre-conference day – of Online Educa 2007. I spent the whole day at something called Sputnic Forum. (Sputnic Webpage) The theme of this forum was ‘Promoting Collaboration Through New Educational Technologies’. It covered four topics: Virtual Mobility, Social Software applications, Streaming Video and Video-conferencing.

Even though the topics in themselves are very relevant to a lot of the activities I’m currently involved in at work back home and even though there were round table talks in the afternoon the seminar didn’t really have the practical orientation that I was looking for. Well, never mind, everything can’t please everyone. And thanks to the free wifi access provided by the conference organizers, I had the opportunity to check out more in detail some of the stuff that I found most interesting during the day:

Media Zoo


Prof. Gilly Salmon from University of Leicester, UK, talked about Media Zoo, an a media learning initiative that I found interesting:
“The Media Zoo provides a supportive, exclusive to staff, experimental environment to facilitate transfer of understanding of the design of learning activities using learning technologies.” Media Zoo is building a Second life presence due to be officially launched as of the 18th of December:

Twofour Learning and The University of Leicester welcome you to the Media Zoo Island. This immersive Second Life environment is a new exciting digital platform where students and academics can share and experience learning in a completely new way. Designed as a place for research to gather data on social interaction, behaviour and the importance of learning in a virtual 3D environment. We would like to invite you to the launch of the Media Zoo Second Life Island on the 18th Dec 2007 at 4pm GMT til 6pm GMT.

SLurl yourself to the Madia Zoo in Second life and check it our for yourself!

Venus Seminars


VENUS offers seminars for interested citizens and students all over Europe, in a virtual way. The seminars are broadcast through videoconferencing to 8 different locations in Europe and through the online streaming to the whole world

During one of the session of the Sputnic Forum a book called “Creating new opportunities for learning: How to Organize International Seminars Open to Citizens Using Advances in ICT” was handed out. I”m sure that it can be useful as a resource of documentation for all of us planning to do something in the field of video-conferencing and e-learning.

Animoto fĂ„r bibblan att rocka
September 16, 2007


Go HĂ„bo!

Anna-Stina Axelsson (Bibliobuster) tipsar om Animoto (jfr svenska Jaycut) dÀr man kan mixa sin egen musikvideo. Kolla in hennes eget alster frÄn HÄbo bibliotek!

Om Animoto:

Animoto is a web application that automatically generates professionally produced videos using patent-pending Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology and high-end motion design. Each video is a fully customized orchestration of user-selected images and music. Produced in widescreen format, Animoto videos have the visual energy of a music video and the emotional impact of a movie trailer.

Slumpen Ă€r konst Ă€r livet
December 18, 2006

Framslumpad av StumbleVideo, som plockar fram de videofilmer som just du kan tÀnkas gilla.  Om du talar om vad du tycker om, det vill sÀga.  Annars Àr det slumpen som regerar. Visst blir livet litet vackrare av det oförutsÀgbara?
