Still not doing this right

I don’t think I’m crediting Creative Commons photos correctly yet. I’m going to embed this convenient infographic  from Fotor here to help when I next need a photo. And I’ve noticed that when I copy the embed code, it automatically has the required attribution. Love it! How To Attribute Creative Commons Photos by Foter

As I reviewed the guidelines of Presentation Zen, I was reminded of the book about e-Learning by Mayer and Clark, e-Learning and the Science of Instruction: Proven Guidelines for Consumers and Designers of Multimedia Learning.

What is safe social?

The first week in COETAIL course 2.

Do you find it easier to remember what your friend posted as her status update last night than what you read in a book last night? Would it surprise you to know that researchers at UCSD and University of Warwick found that our memory for Facebook posts is “about one and a half times...

Showing off my spam

I decided yesterday that I need to show my son my spam. Regularly. And even though I live in Korea, I don’t mean spam in a can, which is considered a fine gift here. Instead, I mean spam as in shown in the picture below: “Robin, are you nuts? Why are you going to...
