eCPD Cohort 3 London – demo of making a blog post via email

January 12, 2010 at 8:28 pm
This is a demo of making a blog posting via email – in this case via my Googlemail account. This email address is set-up to post to my account which in turn is also set up to post to my main WordPress based blog as well as posting to Twitter and Friendfeed. So what's the teaching and learning benefit of all this?
Well different learners may use different systems e.g. some may use Twitter and some may prefer Friendfeed, some may subscribe to my Posterous blog and others to my WordPress blog – however one posting (in this case by email feeds all fours places and could feed more if required. The RSS feeds from each of these systems could also be embedded in a VLE such as Moodle. This enables contribution via mobile devives to the web 2.0 sites mentioned but also to an institutional VLE.
I have also attached a range of files to this message: a couple of images, a PowerPoint file, a sound file and a Word document and once processed we should be able to see if and how these are displayed on the various sites.

This is just a test post using BlogDesk-button

This is a free Windows based RPC tool for WordPress and other blogs. So far it looks like a really useful and fast way of posting including uploading images complete with alt tags and links etc
