When this course ran in 2008, one of the participants set up a web page on Pageflakes to bring all the students’ blogs together. I’ve had a go for the 2011 group here. There’s a “flake” for each blog page where I could find an RSS feed. There’s one where I couldn’t, so I created a flake to add the URL (URI for the purists) for each such blog.
I also included a welcome piece, a message board (which seems to work as a stack – i.e. the most recent post appears at the top), and a flake of useful sites including a world time and date website.
At the moment, I’ve set the “Pagecast” (as Pageflakes calls it) as completely open, so anyone on the internet can fnd the page. My idea is to let anyone on FO2011 have editing rights, but I’ll need email addresses to do that. I wouldn’t suggest you add email addresses to this post, so if you want to email me (cw “at” cwoodhouse “dot” com), or send me an Instant Message via Skype (my Skype username is on the participants page of the course wiki) with your email address, I’ll add you to the list of editors for the FO2011 Pagecast
I’d also be interested to hear any views on whether the FO2011 Pagecast is OK to be kept public, or made private so only FO2011 participants can see it or edit it. I’ll still need your email address to grant access if we end up changing it to private.
