ALT-C so far - Day 2

Day 2 of the conference and the word of the day is ontology. The keynote speaker this morning mentioned ontologies and so did someone in a session this afternoon. Still not quite sure what it means!

John's session went very well (or so he said!). There is always a worry that people will radically disagree with your thoughts on a subject but JD didn't have to worry. A lot of conversation was generated from his thoughts.

Some highlights so far for me.
  • Watching JD lose all his money at the casino last night.
  • The cooked brekkie this morning.
  • Finding out about lots of new software - much of it free, eg. Kartoo - a visual search engine although will we ever get time to play with it?
  • Brilliant session on how to use PDAs in your teaching from a couple of funny guys from Yorkshire. Some simple yet effective ideas.

Conference dinner tonight, probably be loads of lovely veg!

Until tomorrow.

Joe Clark has some excellent resources covering accessibility. These could be useful when creating resources for the web and on DVD.


His book 'Building Accessible Websites' is available on that site, and I have a printed version in my office.

Adding Sound

Is this something we should be looking at developing on our site?

Adding Sound

I am sure there are loads of short tips, tutorials etc we could put together. Virtual induction for WebCT springs to mind.
