Blogging and RSS in Education
Slides and the audio from my talk at Acadia here in Wolfville (7 megabytes). Similar to my talk of yesterday, but I spent less time on the basics and more time talking about wikis, RSS aggregation and Edu_RSS. There are some photos of Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Media RSS Module - RSS 2.0 Module
This is a proposed extension to RSS 2.0 that would allow media to be attached. It's very similar to RSS enclosures, which are used to support podcasting, but it allows for a more detailed description of the media available. By Unknown, Yahoo, December 17, 2004 [Refer][Research][Reflect]

Another new tool. David Warlick writes, "BlogMeister is a blogging tool that will allow educators to establish accounts and start publishing their own blog articles immediately. In addition, registered teachers can establish blog accounts for their students, making them participants in the great global conversation. What makes BlogMeister unique is that student publications must be reviewed by the teacher before they can be made public." By David Warlick, December 16, 2004 [Refer][Research][Reflect]
