8 Oct

Thanks to everyone who is joining in #Octshowntell.

If you don’t know what this is read my blog entry on the new challenge.

It’s actually been more challenging finding an easily accessible single point of storage for our efforts, than it appears to have been to try the new tools. So we have a Vimeo group, a Google group thanks to @newgradlibrarian and then all your own various blog sites. For the latest offerings just search twitter for #octshowntell

Anyway in the interests of keeping some sort of record for the future I’m going to list as many of the efforts as possible here too. Please just add a comment with any new ones you try.

    Thanks for the summary Ruth 🙂

    Actually, it turns out that Storybird *can* be embedded in other sites, but only if the settings are public. It isn’t available as an option for private accounts.

    I’ve had a play with Animoto & created a glimpse of our Iceland adventure: http://bit.ly/dy10px
