I have written a couple of times in the past about ePortfolios and how I personally feel by leveraging blogs and wilki’s we could quite easily build a ePortfolio without the need of specialised tools. A couple of days ago Brian Lamb posted about how he and a friend (well mostly a friend) have modifiedContinue reading “Blogfolios?”
Andy Grace has done his first podcast, going to listen to it today.

Being an aussie who has worked in Canada & the USA trying to explain some of our slang and terminology, eg bugger, bastard, cobber etc, it is great to hear Cameron andContinue reading “Donkey’s Doodle”
For many this might be old news, but Microsoft has launched a blogging service called MSN Spaces. I just created a replica of my blogger account over there to have a look (I will probably delete it in a few days so as not to confuse things). They have created very interesting tool integrating blogs,Continue reading “Microsoft to offer blogging service”
