Oh wait, what about the ability to export your VoiceThread to something like say an iPod? So a couple more tools. EtherPad. Just stop.

Seven more online icebreakers

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Voice icebreakers You may use a service like Voicethread to create a short video to which participants may comment. disadvantage of this icebreaker may be that not everybody may be comfortable enough using voicethread.

Skype, Zorap and Stixy

And, while I was thinking about we collaboration, I googled and found this nifty listing with oodles of cool stuff.   One that I think I might try out is Stixy , which is a more asynchronous option – upload stuff and people can comment on it, kind of like Voicethread meets Google Docs. I was watching Jay Cross talk about Good Practice (thanks to this brilliant online community) and Jay mentioned a service called Zorap , which I immediately – after watching the online video interviews – surfed to and checked out.  Learning Technologies Social Learning

Two more fun tools for elearning

Spark Your Interest

Voicethread , this is a content/media centric – you invite people to record their comments (voice or text).  There are always too many tools to track, but I have a compulsion to track ‘em down, so I might as well just share. Imagination cubed , this fun little one from GE allows you to draw on an online whiteboard, invite friends to join you and replays your drawing movements.  I liked their GUI, but since you are working online, there’s not a lot of editing, which would take some getting used to.  The “stamps&# are good, too.  Click on the link to see mine.

What’s in Your Technology-Enabled Learning Toolbox?

Your Training Edge

VoiceThread — presentation videos with voice annotation. Last week, we looked at the building blocks of technology-enabled learning , from elements like learning objectives that are common across all training formats to those that are specific to digital formats, like content authoring tools.

Employee Orientation programs are perfect partners for social media

Spark Your Interest

Create a Voicethread with the neighbourhood map and allow others to share their favorite coffee spots, lunch places or secret walks. There are people who are really interested in helping organizations deal with social media for external purposes – marketing, product development, user communities, and then there are those that are more interested in helping organizations figure out how to incorporate social media internally – learning, user support, communities of practice and so forth. This can become brand suicide in one day: employee orientation.

Corporate Learning Trends and Innovations Kick-off

Jay Cross

Despite the fact that Jane Hart and I work with one another on togetherLearn , I had never used — or even heard of — VoiceThread, nvu, or Yugma. As a co-host, I am hardly without bias, but I found this morning’s opening of the free Corporate Learning Trends event fantastic. In spite of some childish hacker-vandals and a few sound issues, each of the three sessions this morning worked. The proliferation of free learning tools certainly comes at the right time. play within a play. Captivating. Lots.). As expected, the 100:10:1 participation inequality factor kicked in.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.
