Friday Bits

Bit One: I have been at LMS 2007 for the past couple of days getting lots of exposure to the ins and outs of issues like changing your learning management system, how to deal with vendors, and what to look for in a Learning Content Management System. Today I attended a session on Web 2.0 and Learning Management Systems, and they talked about a very cool new LMS, the first of its kind, actually: Sloodle is a mashup of Moodle (an open source LMS) and Second Life. The basic idea: students’ avatars can take online learning courses via Sloodle in Second Life. Read more about it at the SJSU Sloodle wiki. What an awesome idea!
Bit Two: Next week (Apr 15-21) is National Library Week. This year’s theme is Come together @ your library. Check out this page for ways to celebrate and promote your library!
