It’s Friday. Bet you guys did not know that. I am trying to wrap up the week, and as part of the things I needed to get I created a couple of screencasts to be used in an online class a friend of mine has created. The class is on Twitter, and I was asked to do an overview on a couple of tools I use with Twitter.
One of the products is a product used to create, read, search and filter tweets. The product is called Tweetdeck, and it is owned by Twitter. I find it easier to use, and has more features than the main Twitter website, plus you can access it anywhere with all your predetermined columns and searches via a nice web interface. You can view the screencast here.
The second product is Paper.li which allows you to use web content to generate a customized online newspaper. You can use your twitter feed, customized searches, RSS feeds, videos and much more to generatea paper with fresh content once a day, twice a day or weekly It is free, and has a lot of potential for educators. You can view that screencast here.
Let me know what you think, and have a happy Independence Day next week.
