Drumroll!!! #23 Wrapping up

Wee!!! I'm finished. Much was learned about Web 2.0. Setting up my very own blog and learning what Web 2.0 has to offer was exciting and interesting.

Some web things I will use include blogging, rss feeds and library thing. Webthings I have been using include del.icio.us, netlibrary and WorldCat.


#22 ELibrary.com

ELibrary provides various book formats including audiobooks and ebooks without going into a physical library building. It is great that so many titles are available either by downloading to your tablet, smartphone or mp3 player.

Hoorah to libraries that seek innovation in meeting the technology and reading needs of their communities!

Thing #9 Finding Feeds

Finding feeds was rather fun and easy. I established a bloglines account and added 10 feeds. I tried Topix, Syndic8 and Technorati. The most useful to me is Syndic8 for its contents such as news headlines.

I found DMOZ.org in Syndic8, an open directory info I've used for library research. The best way to find RSS feeds is to go to my favorite site and look for the RSS feeds symbol or similar and subscribe.

Podcasting #21

This is one tool I have not used before today. It is a convenient way to view a show at any time as long as it is available. I can see how this tool has practical applications such as viewing lessons for teaching or learning. I tried podcast.com and Odeo.

#19 Web 2.0 Awards

Seomoz.org/web2.0 awards is an impressive and useful site to view topic categories. One such category is called Lists and Polls for compiling lists of everything and for statistics.

I will definitely bookmark this site.
