Picnik: My New Favorite Online Photo Editor
I had fun with Picnik today, thanks to this recommendation from mark Oehlert. I agree with him, it's a great little tool. Nt sure about signing up for the premium version, though - I think I'll see if it remains nice and fast. Mark Oehlert, Weblog February 6, 2008 [Link] [Tags: ] [Comment]

Learning Technologies (250+ Articles!)
This should keep you reading for a day or two. The conference is over (you can see my talk here) but as Zaid notes, "you will have access to over 250 FREE articles (as far as I know!) discussing learning and technologies from January 2000 until today (Latest issue: December 2007)."I checked the archives and was able to access every article I tried, so I agree with Zaid, it's a great resource.

Sit and Listen
Ian Delaney reports on the release of a report called Learning 2.0 by the CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing), not to be confused with the other Learning 2.0 report (see below). He summarizes, "there's a big need for change when it comes to professional development. Individuals need to do more to take the initiative, since they're ultimately in it for themselves. Their own preferred learning styles might mean that the current provision their company offers is utterly useless. They'd learn more from reading books, or blogging, or going to excellent networking events." Ian Delaney, twopointouch February 6, 2008 [Link] [Tags: , , ] [Comment]

Learn Almost Anything With Howcast Instructional Videos
Richard Nantel reports, "Three ex-Google employees have just launched a new site called Howcast that provides high-quality instructional videos and wikis that explain how to do just about anything." Richard Nantel, Brandon Hall Research February 6, 2008 [Link] [Tags: , , ] [Comment]

Learning 2.0 eBook
It reads so quickly it doesn't seem like it could be a book, but it's more than 100 pages and might be just the perfect vehicle to introduce administrators and non-tech people to e-learning 2.0. I especially like the series of diagrams in the first section that map the transition from learning 1.0 through 1.5 to 2.0. The booklet also contains a lengthy list of links at the end.
