a new ePedagogy Twine

Twine is an online service that is currently in private beta. It is something like a cross between del.icio.us and a community-based version of study.log.

Anyone can start a Twine about anything, and invite members. Members can post things there: essays, but also urls, media, and anything that can be stored on the web. Each post can be tagged, shared and commented on. Even better there is a Firefox bookmarklet that you can use to post any web page you are reading to the Twine of your choice, tagging it and adding a comment as you go.

This means that groups like ours can create shared libraries of interesting online material, and then link it through posting essays of our own that draw threads between various posted links and media.

Obviously I managed to get an invitation, and I have just invited everyone whose email address I had to hand. If you have not been invited (Wey hasn’t for one because I didn’t have his email address in Airset for some reason) then email me and I will invite you. This also applies to all the new students. Mail me at owen@owenkelly.net with the subject Twine ePed and I will invite you straight away.

It seems much neater in lots of ways than other attempts to create such an online shared library, and I think that we should try it to see what use we can make of it.

Web 2.0 and onwards!

    Hi Owen,
    Not sure if you read about our upcoming release of the AirSet Connector 2.0 in our blog. Once downloaded, it will provide the ability for everyone to save links directly into an AirSet group, in a folder/directory of the user’s choice, and add some notes or annotation to the link. Just came across your blog here and thought I’d share. The new release of the AirSet Connector should be available next week.
    Cheers,
    Sherrie
