  1. Blog
  2. Social Bookmarks (delicious)
  3. RSS Feeds
  4. Podomatic
  5. Slideshare
  6. Flickr
  7. Video
  8. RSS Feed reader! (Bloglines)

The key for Michael is RSS feeds. As multiple students post their course reflections and assignments to their blog, he is able to read the updates from a single place .. his RSS feed reader.

For a feed reader, i like google reader, but michael prefers bloglines. (There are so many options.)

Whatever works for you and your learners is the best choice!

i liked michael’s comment that when most people hear the word “feed” they think oats and hay.

Here are some of the web addresses michael handed out:
