EdTechRoundUp Weekly #88 – #TEDxLondon and #DMLbadges

18 September 2011

ETRU WeeklyThis week’s podcast is a lot better than last week’s, thank goodness! Doug Belshaw, Dai Barnes, Pete Bell and Nick Dennis were around on Skype to discuss the TEDxLondon event and the launch of DML ‘badges’.

We mentioned Google Art Project right at the end of the discussion but Call Recorder for Skype managed to cut that off. Sorry.

EdTechRoundUp Weekly #86 – ICT curriculum, ALT-C 2011 and more!

10 September 2011

ETRU Weekly

We missed a couple of weeks (apologies!) due to various commitments. In addition, this week’s recording is both amusing and frustrating. Amusing due to the fun we had putting it together; frustrating in that the audio recording dropped due to Camtasia being more-than-averagely flaky on Dai’s Mac.

Oh well, you can’t win them all. 🙂

 


We’re back with weekly Google+ Hangouts!

Google PlusIn preparation for a full re-launch in September 2011 we’ve starting meeting up again in Google+ on Sunday evenings at 20.00 BST (GMT+1) to discuss all things related to educational technology and e-learning.

As a bit of experiment we recorded last week’s Google+ Hangout and have added it to the podcast feed. We’re aware of some quality issues but we’d love to hear your feedback!
