Blog Post 8 and 9 Due Dates Switched

Blog Post #8 (Originally Due Sunday June 23, 2013) and Blog Post #9 (Originally due Wednesday June 26, 2013) have been switched.

Blog Post #9 is now Blog Post #8 and Blog Post #8 is now Blog Post #9.

I was assured by one of the companies involved that we could get temporary passwords so you could explore iCurio and/or Discovery Ed. That has not happened (and may not). Additional instructions regarding the How Can iCurio and Discover Ed Be Used Effectively in Your Instruction? assignment (now Blog Post #9) will be provided on or before Sunday 6/23.

These changes have now been made to the BlogPost Assignments, Version 6, June 19, 2013.

Trying Out Hangout

Nearing 100,000 Visitors

The revised version EDM310 is now in its 10th semester. Since the 9th of January, 2010 the EDM310 Class Blog site has had almost 100,000 visitors! As of today - June 12, 2013 at 11:29 GMT (4:29 am CDT) - the EDM310 Class Blog has welcomed 96,717 visitors in almost 2 1/2 years!

Our visitors come for all over the world. Since 11:21 pm last night we have had visitors from the United States (including Alabama, Virginia, Maryland, and North Dakota), Pakistan, Germany, South Africa, Iceland, and Palestine. In the 2 1/2 years since the new EDM310 started we have had 16,852 visitors from outside the United States!

One of the things I hoped to accomplish in the new EDM310 was to link the students at the University of South Alabama to the world. We are certainly doing that.

We should hit 100,000 visitors shortly before the end of the Summer term or near the start of the Fall 2013 term.

Thanks for joining us in our learning journey!
