Myspace induction

Moodle Journal

Upon ending the presentation rather than give out advice on pre-start of courses reading, I asked them to get a Myspace account, fill out all the categories and be sure to post comments to at least two from others. My plans are that the Social networking aspects of Myspace will not only form the first point for an ongoing trend of collaboration but be the foundation in forming an online presence and identity The HND course officially started today with an induction. I had an hour to present myself and courses to them.

Learning Visions

Tuesday, July 10, 2007 The Real World, SecondLife and FaceBook/MySpace Over the past few weeks Ive conducted about 17 interviews with current college students and recent graduates. couple of people also had MySpace accounts. MySpace is seen as being too "creepy". Its not safe." Im not sure how this relates to danah boyds recent blog article on Viewing American class divisions through FaceBook and MySpace. Safety and creepy were the big buzzwords I heard. A few people commented that MySpace is too garish; the FaceBook look and feel is more classic. eLearnin.

Cyworld: Myspace, Flickr, Blogger, AIM, and SecondLife in ONE

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

To an American eye, the Cyworld service looks like a mixture of some of the hottest US properties: it's MySpace meets Flickr and Blogger and AIM and Second Life. Cyworld has penetration rates that would make Rupert Murdoch, CEO of MySpace parent News Corp. It looks like the future of Social networking is going to come from Korea in the form of a tool called Cyworld. O'Reilly has a long post referencing the Business2.0 article on the topic covering many angles. But as I glossed over the geopolitical discussion and focused on the technology I gathered these bits from the B2.0

Infographic: How Google has changed what it means to do research


2003: Myspace launched. With almost 30 percent of the human population, or 2 billion people, using the internet; and 94 percent of US students equating research with using Google or other search engines, it comes as no surprise that 75 percent of students use Wikipedia and online encyclopedias for research. They also used Wikipedia (75 %) and YouTube or otehr social media sites (52 % ).

MOOC Major Players


The MOOC landscape is taking shape , and just like social networking sites before it, the major players are starting to emerge.  It’s still too early to tell which one of these will fall the way of MySpace, but as Facebook has pointed out, there is often very little room at the top. Given the shifting environment, it isn’t always clear what options are out there. MOOCs

The future of eLearning, part 2


Social networking is not some new category of computer use that Facebook (or Friendster/MySpace/Twitter/etc) invented.

Blending social and mobile

Bottom-Line Performance

Its roots are NOT in mobile learning as social became a hit with the advent of social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook – which emerged before mobile phones gave access to these sites. (We have created a 7-part comprehensive report containing a series of two-to-three page “briefs.” This is part 2: Blending social and mobile. Twitter), LinkedIn, etc. Anyone can become a teacher.

Share trading

Learning with e's

The likes of Friendster, and later MySpace, Bebo and Faceboook (some would argue that the BBS users were the first), promoted the idea that you could connect with those you knew, and you could share your thoughts with them. We teach our children that sharing is good. And yet as adults, we are more reluctant to share with each other. You don''t get something for nothing. Until now.

Bored to tiers

A lot of the rhetoric surrounding the more popular social networking sites such as FaceBook , MySpace and Bebo seems to be related to the more negative factors such as identity theft, threats to children, breahes in privacy of personal data and copyright theft. Tags: MySpace social networking FaceBook Bebo Now FaceBook and the others have a new threat to contend with. Apparently they are leaving in. well, droves.

Using social media for eLearning (a look at the top 6 social platforms)


huge part of our social lives already happens online rather than in the “real world” And while individual social media networks might rise and fall (remember MySpace?), Social media have become an indispensable part of modern life. social networking itself is not going anywhere. But how about using social media as vehicles for eLearning? Twitter. YouTube. Instagram. Facebook.

Saving face

Anyway - it's similar to other social networking spaces such as Bebo (which has a much younger user base) and MySpace (where age doesn't seem to matter - they take anyone). Tags: MySpace social network FaceBook communication Bebo A few days ago I set up my own FaceBook account. already have 6 friends, all people I know in some way or another. others have also tried to hook up with me, but I don't know them from Adam (who is also not one of my friends) so I declined the offer. You can't be too careful - they could be axe murderers or window salesmen or something worse.
