February 27: churches, slideshows, movie review

We now have our list of other participating churches, food pantries, etc. The best place to see them all is on the Google map that I have updated (I suggest you link to this somewhere or try embedding it as I have done here. A caution for iframe embeds is to paste the code in […]

February 25-Audio, mainly

As noted via e-mail, the mics now work with Audacity (although one headset was not working). The key is to set up the mic before you open Audacity. So we will try recording in again, as you will also need this for the Soundslides project (posted Wednesday), and everyone should be able to report that […]

Creative Commons Search + Movie

Thought I’d put this Creative Commons Search link in a separate link so as not to bury it. It’s also in the sidebar under Legal if you need it later.

Audio 2



Olympus saves files as WMA (Windows Media Audio) which Audacity can’t import. You’ll need to come to the front (or Center for New Media) to convert your files to .WAV or MP3 to bring into Audacity. I’ve got an app called Switch to do that, which you can download for a brief […]

February 6

Just a summary and pointing ahead a bit. First, while there are no tests in this class, I do expect everyone to participate in discussion, do the readings, stay awake when we have a guest speaker—the usual requirements. I noted those who were actively involved today and those who chose not to be, so thanks—you […]

NHNP presentation

OK—here is a link to Tom Wingert’s PowerPoint presentation, and an embed of the video. For any MSOffice file, it’s best to save it as an Office 97-03 file (with extension .ppt or .doc) FTP it to the server, and link to that. Files made with Office 2010 versions are saved as XML files […]

First, some links from the blogosphere:
