  • A clever way to make that weekly post that takes the “blogging pain” away.
  • View the power of embedded games on your blog site. A natural fit.
  • Witness the draw-you-in-ness of having large, clear images at the start of your blog posts.
  • Simple organization of daily class starters you already do allows for student review and a bank of future resources.

To inspire integration

Off the beaten track
To soothe the soul at the start of 2011:

  • If you need to just chill a bit after the holidays, grab a primer of various styles of music from the music department.
  • Not to be missed. Try a new hobby.

Khan Academy

Khan Academy – utterly amazing:

“With over 1600 videos, it is easily the most exhaustive collection of instruction on the Internet allowing learners to know that they can fill in almost any of their “gaps” with the content on this site. The content is made in digestible 10-20 minute chunks especially purposed for viewing on the computer as opposed to being a longer video of a conventional “physical” lecture.”

“The Khan Academy is all about using video to explain the world, so what better way to explain the Khan Academy than through videos. If you watch four or five of the videos below, you should have a pretty good idea of how we got started and how we hope to empower everyone, everywhere with a free, world-class education.”
