Bulgaria visit.

I’m currently in Bulgaria at the moment; visiting the Technical University of Sofia. I gave a presentation today, looking at eLearning and Web 2.0. I’m not sure, though, that I got quite the right level, as few students had used blogs/ MySpace / etc – though several had used Wikipedia & YouTube.

That’s when I realised that perhaps I should have done the “Paper Blogging” idea that I read about a few weeks ago – and also the frustration of not having an internet connection – so having to have taken as many screenshots as I could before hand!

Getting the Slideshow embedded wasn’t as easy as I’d expected! Though slideshare gives you the HTML code, I found that it completely screwed up the formatting. The WordPress forums quickly pointed me to a plugin to enable the use of the code that Slideshare generate for WordPress.com. Initially I wasn’t sure that it had worked, as in the edit box, the code still shows… Now I’m wondering what’s going to happen when the post gets imported to my Eduspaces Blog.

  1. Cool. We want photos. đŸ˜‰

    My experience is that I always have to plan on not having internet, even in well-connected areas. That way I’m always ready for disasters – or finicky technology.

  2. I suspect that the best photos are going to be on the “real” camera … it’s been pretty rainy as well.

    As to the without the internet – I *thought* I’d got enough screenshots – just hadn’t anticipated the level of expertise – I was expecting more than one in the class to have read a blog!

    (Guess I should have remembered to bring the USB stick with Xampp on it & have installed a blog…)
