The Flickring Light

Blimey, week 7 of #mosomelt already? Time for a quick reflect. I managed to create a custom Google map and actually find a use for it. I’m helping to organise a student conference later in the year, and created a map of local accommodation . Great to be able to learn something and then apply it so soon.

This week I had a look at Flickr for the ‘Mobile Image Sharing’ activity. I’ve been on Flickr for nearly 10 years but not really used it much. However, seeing that I could use a private group for a class to share images and comments gave me an idea that it would be a good way to support distance students in our analysis and design classes. We currently get them to share images  via forums in the LMS, but a Flickr group would seem a much better way of doing it.

Next week is mobile audio sharing, which is also somewhat timely as I have recently been looking at the publication process for Spotify. Like my recent experience planning to publish with Kindle, an interesting insight into  how creative media work these days.
