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.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Real World, SecondLife and FaceBook/MySpace

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

What Millennials Want from Member Education

Association eLearning

At first, my computer only included educational games (my mom was a bit of a hippie and opposed the violent and competitive games my friends were playing).  I learned some basic html coding when I was just 11 years old because I constantly wanted to update the backgrounds on my NeoPets and MySpace profiles. assnchat.

Kapp Notes

However, one article caught my eye "MySpace, IM--why so addictive?" We spend a lot of time in the blogosphere talking about the future of learning, making predictions and lamenting formal instructional design but rarely is the voice of the "gamer generation" heard.the voice of the learners who will be demanding that we design instruction differently. Here is some of the article: Yes, these terms --Instant Messanger and Myspace--may seem foreign to your parents, but to us teenagers they're essential to keep up with the lastest ins and outs.

eLearning Trends That Will Fizzle, Sizzle, or Simmer in 2014

Bottom-Line Performance

Is gamification going to go the way of Myspace and Foursquare? Our industry is notorious for chasing after trends. We all enjoy reading the summaries of the past year – and seeing predictions for the new one. Most folks want to know: which trends are worth pursuing and which ones are going to fizzle? The really, really good ones become “best practices” over the long haul.

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

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 % ).

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.

Keep your social media in perpetual Beta

Learning and Working on the Web

Facebook beat MySpace and many other contenders to the critical point when network effects drive exponential growth. I’m still blogging, as are many others, but the conversation is constantly moving: Blogs are for longer thoughts (at least for me). Tweet When I started blogging, it was one of the few options to share ideas on the Net. There were some utilities like Quicktopic that let you easily make posts and of course we had listservs, bulletin boards and discussions forums that had been around for much longer. After blogs, the next big phenomena were social networks.

Part 2: Using Facebook as a learning platform (videos)


Social networking sites have educational benefits: University of Minnesota researcher Christine Greenhow breaks down how her research has found that social networking sites like Facebook and Myspace can have an impact for learning and educational growth for high school students.

Products/services like Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc. In my last post about Hassenzahl’s model , we looked at how users assign attributes to the product or service experience. These attributes differ from user to user, and hence each user has an unique experience with the product/service. The pragmatic attributes are about the practical usage and functions/features of the product/service.

recent US research project (by a PhD student mind you) has reported that users of FaceBook are generally toffs from wealthier homes and are more likely to study in further/higher education than that great unwashed working class lot who like using MySpace. used to have a MySpace , but abandoned it because FaceBook was easier to use. subsequently found out that more of my friends were using it than MySpace, so it made social networking easier. Tags: MySpace social network research FaceBook So it's official. Well, fancy that. Anyway, I'm not so sure about this report.
