Just a bit of fun :)

One of me in SL

This is “me”

Enough seriousness, is that a word or have I just made it up? Here are a few links to things both funny and helpful.

I think I’ve mentioned this before but nevermind, Hastac is a way of getting together with other people to think about things. Hastac can be just fun but it can also be very useful fun. Hastac is rather like an undergrad version of Unexus, these people are getting not just thinkers together but also all the people who can make things actually work – great stuff!

Some of you might be interested in getting your own stuff out there so you might be could want to learn a bit about coding. Codeacademy provides some really helpful information in a pretty simple way so that you can use it on your own web pages.

Things like szoter can be very useful when you are studying. You’ll see a picture on a web site and it looks really useful as a way of reminding you about the information on the site. Just grab an image of the site and then annotate it, all with szoter. Another study aid is ProfessorWord – it can be awfully annoying and confusing when you don’t know the meaning to a word, just use Professor Word and you can obtain an immediate definition. Not bad eh?

ok – that’s yer lot for now 🙂 I’ll find some more stuff soon.
