I’ve taken the plunge and decided to become a blogger. I want to learn as much as I can about the Web 2.0 world and think it would be a good idea to share what I am learning. I’m reading lots of blogs via my Google reader and can see that sharing some of these amazing insights will be beneficial for others. One of the blogs I’m following is Commoncraft. I’m really impressed with what this small company is achieving. They create videos explaining Web 2.0 applications in a very easily understandable fashion. Have a look at their latest offering explaining Photo Sharing on the Web.
I’m going to be using this and other Commoncraft videos in my information literacy teaching this year for both students and staff. What’s the point in me standing up and trying to explain Google Docs when they do it so much better in a simple 4 minute video!
