Google Buzz in eLearning

Upside Learning

Every Buzz item can be turned into a conversation (like in Friendfeed or Wave.) The web is abuzz with talk of Google Buzz. So what is Buzz – simply put it’s a personal aggregator that is coupled to your Gmail account. Buzz is to email what Wave will eventually be to real-time collaboration around email thread and embedded documents or media. What does buzz do? Let Google do the explaining –.

Egoboo integration

Jay Cross

Tracking where you’re mentioned is tougher now that conversation on the web takes place on Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, and numerous other flows. Friendfeed /jaycross. Egoboo is a colloquial expression for the pleasure received from public recognition of voluntary work. Of course, first you’ve got to find where you are being recognized. Reporters, researchers, and podcasters interview me about informal learning and its application in business every week. (I’m

The Daily Tweets

Jay Cross

Friendfeed /jaycross. I did not want to like paper.il, the new, personal Twitter aggregater. Just more clutter, I thought to myself. Nonetheless, it is so easy to set up, I filled in the blank with my Twitter list of Internet Time Alliance colleagues. Voila. Our Daily Tweet-news. This morning I visited my Daily site and learned a number of things I might otherwise have missed.

Walkabout Reflections

Jay Cross

Looking back at 60 days of blog posts is easier with Friendfeed. Remember this one? I hoard words but often never go back to reflect on what’s there. Photo Review. I’ve posted more than 700 photographs to Flickr since February 1. Here are the 56 photos ` that meant most to me. Tagging these favorites was a fun exercise. Reflection as forced march. Food & people. A few sights. On the Road. Jack Keroac typed On the Road on toilet paper.

Social Media, elearning, Blogs, Lifestream, & Productivity

Big Dog, Little Dog

Here's a quick rundown answers to of some common questions that came in via Twitter, Friendfeed and comments. Where is Everyone? Baekdal.com. These days, everyone is trying to figure out how to connect with other people. It used to be simple, you just placed some ads in whatever newspaper that was most suited to your product, but now that world is becoming ever more irrelevant. So how do you connect with other people today? And more importantly, how do you do it tomorrow?

Friendfeed - mostly text, but augmented by images. wePapers - Creating the world’s biggest study group. Another source for plagiarists - Amusingly enough when I looked at some of the papers and googled phrases, there were plagiarized elements in the downloadable wePapers “articles&# for study purposes. So now there are layers of plagiarism. It is obviously increasingly difficult to control this kind of dishonesty without changing some of our academic practices.

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.

518 to 0 in one click - Declaring Google Reader Bankruptcy

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

And these days I actually find myself monitoring TWITTER and other microblogging aggregators like FriendFeed , and SocialThing more often. There actually does come a point where 518 rss feeds just aren't managable. Instead of trying to organize the feeds it just seemed easier to start from scratch. Now that I have a better understanding of how to use Google Reader, I can hopefullly stay more organized from the get go. My feedreader journey has been interesting.Â

Activity Streams

Jay Cross

For example, my FriendFeed pages show activity from this blog, the Internet Time Blog, my Flickr account, bookmarks I put on Delicious, and my entries from Twitter. An activity stream is a mash-up of an individual’s or organization’s feeds. Tumblr operates similarly although it does a better job displaying photos and is a bit more spartan.

From 100 to 600+ eLearning Twitter-ers

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

I may be pushing it a little, but have you tried FriendFeed yet? Wow! I just saw a Gmail alert for Jane Hart's 600+ Learning Professionals on Twitter Didn't I just blog about 100+ eLearning Professionals to follow on TWITTER ? Why yes.yes I did. (Or Or else that link back there wouldn't work.) That was an incredible growth spurt! Are there any of you left out there that still don't "get" twitter? If so, you now have 600 tutors waiting to help you.sort of.

Informal Learning Flow

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

I follow people on blogs, Twitter and Friendfeed. Professional learning is increasingly driven by demand, not supply. You decide what you need or want to learn and you go get it when you feel like it. Since you chose your topic rather than being told, you’re more likely to retain information you find. To keep from drowning in the gusher of discoveries, news, and insight on the net, astute foragers use services to filter the noise and present headlines worthy of further investigation.

12 ways social media are screwing with bad work habits

because my every click will show up on FriendFeed and I’m supposed to be in some fictitious 2:00 meeting. Can’t hide. Other person: “Want to talk at 2:00? <pause> <pause> Me: “No, I’ve got a meeting at 2:00.&# {note: there is no meeting}. Other person: “OK, how about the same time tomorrow?&#. Me: “Sure, 2:00 tomorrow.&#. (Me, Me, silently: Great. Now I can’t Tweet, update my Facebook status, blog, bookmark, etc.

Teaching the Social Web

eLearning Development

I’ve seen discussions and blog posts about appropriate use of social tools like Facebook , Twitter , LinkedIn and FriendFeed in the workplace. Yesterday my wife got a message on Facebook from a friend asking for advice on how to handle a young teenage girl’s use of MySpace. I instantly went into parent mode and told her how we deal with our teenager. The overall theme of my response was trust and communication.

The Great ID Debate - eLearning Roadtrip. These days a good ID needs to be able to write instructional objective. Conduct a content analysis. And an audience analysis.

Twittering birds and headless dogs

Learning with e's

It was brought to my attention by Michelle A Hoyle (London, England) that A J Cann (Leicester, England) is using a combination of Twitter and Friendfeed with his students with some success. An old friend of mine, Carol Daunt (Brisbane, Australia) has single handedly turned me on to Plurk. Plurk, despite its silly name, is a microblogging tool that is at once both jolly good fun and strangely addictive.

Streams, not blogs?

Jay Cross

Services like FriendFeed , Tumbler , and Posterous are essentially personal aggregators. Everything shows up on Steve’s Friendfeed , including comments and discussion. To fork or not to fork? Blogging has been an important part of my life for ten years but now I’m wondering if the party isn’t moving on. Like classrooms in training, blogs will always be around. But also like classrooms, blogs are ceasing to be the primary source of value.

Reflecting on the first half of 2009

Jay Cross

Friendfeed /jaycross. My new car is one year old! How did that happen? Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’ into the future. Midyear already! How did we get here so quickly? It’s making me dizzy. I’m going to reflect on what I’ve been up to in 2009 thus far. Caution: this is what Jon Stewart would call old news. Winter 2009. MacWorld : learning infrastructure and social network infrastructure are converging. Surreal.
