    Hi there – great site!

    I am a technology teacher in Ontario, and recently I started http://www.ClassRunner.com in order to help teachers bring online learning environments into their classes in an easy and affordable way. Many teachers I know have wanted to extend their class online, but have balked at the complexity. My goal is to provide a simple, friendly yet powerful option, giving teachers just what they need, without any headaches.
    Using Moodle, I setup, host and manage very affordable course sites for teachers, which can provide a class message-board functions, blogs, assignment posting and collecting, online markbooks, posted resources, glossaries, calendars, etc…
    I hope you think your readers might find it appealing. With your permission, I will be adding a link to your site on our ‘links’ page, and if you think it appropriate, perhaps you could reciprocate?

    Wishing you continued success in your endeavors,
    David Hoare

    DEAR Michael ,
    The Internet has transformed how we communicate with the public, but there are still many challenges in making information easy to find. Since you cover e-learning in The E-learning Curve at Edublogs , I thought you might be interested in a study that my nonprofit published this summer about how people find information online. The study covers three groups: non-profit organizations and cities; web designers and firms; and the general public.
    The study was fascinating on a number of levels, and I invite you to read the executive summary or download a PDF of the findings at http://www.idea.org/find-information.html .
    The survey results sparked ideas about tools we could provide that might make finding information online easier. This fall, we will start beta testing a cool new new navigational tool. I don’t have your email, so if you are interested, you can sign up for our beta here: http://www.spicynodes.org/ or to stay abreast of our (very) occasional new projects, you can get our newsletter here: http://www.idea.org/newsletter.html

    Hi Michael,
    Thanks for your comments and for reading my blog.
    I’ll be very interested to take a look at the research your carried out this summer about how people find information online. This is a subject very close to my heart, given that people generally (and knowledge workers in particular) spend up to 30% of their time searching for information across a range of resources including local intra- and extranets and, of course, online.
    If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that I have written on this topic previously on a number of occasions, and I am always motivated to discover new work undertaken in this domain. If it’s OK with you, I’ll put some remarks on the research on the E-learning Curve at Edublogs, naturally including links to your own site and the primary research itself.
    Best regards,
    Michael Hanley

    Hello Michael,

    I’d like to let you know about Intodit, a free and flexible hosted Wiki service that allows users to drag and drop content, including text, photos, and videos with a focus on ease of use. I think readers of E-Learning Curve would be interested in what it can do.

    Our main goal was to create something that people could use to share information in a flexible and easy way. Most of our users state that they prefer our Wiki service to others because it is user friendlier and provides the best of both a Wiki and a social networking service.

    One of our users sums it up best: “With other services it’s too difficult for non-members to contribute to the conversation or just not user friendly enough. Intodit on the other hand, seems to be very simple and provides the best of both worlds.”

    If you like to play around just visit http://www.intodit.com or http://example.intodit.com with username test and password test.

    Thanks Maurice – I’ll be happy to try it out!
    Best regards,
