From last week: Twitter, Depot webcast recordings, blog survey results, bandwidth, and online collaboration tools

It’s Monday again–hope you had a good weekend. Here’s what you may have missed on our blog last week:

On Tuesday I continued my series on budget and time-conscious social networking with a piece on how we use Twitter at Stratepedia.

Also on Tuesday, Amber shared links to the recorded versions of our Depot webcasts from a few weeks ago. Amber’s session is the shorter one, if you’re in a hurry.

On Wednesday, Amber provided some results from her blog content survey from the week before. Amber and I have discussed the results and have some ideas about how to give you more of the content you’re interested in reading–watch for some teacher success stories and interviews in the coming weeks. I have some followup questions I may ask down the road, so I hope you’re not tired of answering survey questions yet.

On Thursday, Amber posted some methods you can use to test your Internet connections speed, otherwise known as bandwidth.

Later on Thursday I posted an important update to our terms of service for the Learning Labs–specifically, we won’t be creating new groups on the Learning Labs effective immediately. Sorry for the inconvenience.

But don’t worry–on Friday I offered five tools to use to collaborate online. This list is by no means exhaustive, and we’ll share more as we learn about them.

Lots of good web links were shared over the course of the week, too.
