Uploading a video is Easy

I uploaded this video of our students designing a spreadsheet in Google Docs from our summer Jump Start program. Just click the icon of the film strip on the edit tool bar, browse for your video file, give it a title and click upload. Time to put those webcams to work.

Posting to Blogger from your igoogle page

A great new feature is the igoogle blogger gadget. It allows you to make a quick post from your igoogle homepage.

It also works as a handy reminder to add content to your blog on a frequent basis. This is web publishing at it's easiest! But be careful, the igoogle page refreshes automatically and could cause a long post to be deleted, keep these entries shoort just to be safe.

Greetings St. Clair County Educators!

Blogging can be a very effective means of reaching your learners during and after school. You can upload assignments, create a forum for discussion, link to other web resources, and embed video or audio resources.

Your Google Account makes signing up for and creating a blog for your classroom very easy. Remember, you don't have to share your blog publicly until it's ready.
