Cool Site of the “Day” – Only 2 Clicks

Posted on

I have started blogging posts like this on my district’s Ning, but it is a private environment only open to employees of the district.  So, I thought I’d cross-post them to my blog as well, why not?  Who knows, maybe someone reads this blog and benefits from it!  If so, here you go, my first Cool Site of the “Day” (in quotes because it’s not really daily)

A cool site on which you can have all your favorite websites, available from any computer, just 2 clicks away. A perfect solution for people who want their bookmarks and favorite sites accessible and easy to find.

From their website:
Think of it as a speed dial to your most used web sites
If you’re like me, you might have hundreds of links stored in your browser’s bookmarks, spread across multiple folders and categories, but you may only have a dozen web sites that you frequently access on a daily basis. The few tech-savvy computer users might use comprehensive start pages such as netvibes or iGoogle – complete with gadgets and widgets…what ever they are! Most of us are on the run, and just want something simple and easy to use. Here is the good news, you’ve found it here with only 2 clicks!

I first found out about Blabberize at PETE & C earlier this month and hadn’t really thought that much more about it until my CFF Apple training last week. Our ‘assignment’ was to create an iMovie, on basically anything we want. So, because most of the time we like to use our time in the trainings on something useful, a fellow coach and friend, Aly Tapp, suggested we do a tutorial video on Blabbarize. I was slightly more familiar with iMovie and she was more familiar with Blabbarize, so we made a good pair. Not only did I learn how to use this cool web 2.0 tool, but I also learned a great deal about teaching the tools I know and collaborating to get a task done. I have since posted my tutorial video on my CFF Moodle page and advertised it in my recent newsletter. It’s sometimes amazing how easy things are these days!

Here is the Blabber I made for the tutorial video:
