News Releases in the Social Media Era Matt Herzberger | Web Designer, Texas A&M University – College of Engineering Not started yet, but his opening slide has (cc) on the bottom. I like this guy already. OK – here we go. He shows the “old school” way of doing  things. Looks a lot like what […]

Limon, CO - waiting for a tow Limon, CO – waiting for a tow

Saturday, October 4th, 2008

So the flight was canceled after hours of delays… No more flights out of Denver. Next possible flight option wouldn’t get to Springfield till late Sunday evening. Who knew that the Denver airport shuts down at 6pm on a Saturday? We decided that it would be better to drive. At 12+ hours it might be […]

HighEdWeb 2008 - Design Competition HighEdWeb 2008 – Design Competition

Friday, December 14th, 2007

After presenting in 2007, I was asked to be on the conference committee for the 2008 HighEdWeb. This next conference will be in Springfield Missouri, and I have been selected as multimedia representative (though I am not entirely sure what that means yet). We have already had several meetings (via the telephone) and many items […]

The end of the web as we know it and I feel fine

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Mark A.Greenfield – U of Buffalo This was a great one to end on. Mark, a very professional speaker, had put together a great presentation. He covered the changes from mosaic to google earth to the mobile browser. Then he began to look beyond. One interesting argument covered was that the web page, once thought […]

Fair use on the web

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Scott Lenger -Duke Law Anything created after 1989 has automagic copyright applied to it. The fair use laws were enacted to protect the publics right to still use limited pieces of material without going to jail. Scott spoke about DRM and the creative commons, but for the most part he tried to explain the fair […]

The Science Museum

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Missed breakfast. Last night, after podcasting, were a series of poster presentations and special interest group meetings. Again, I had a good chance to speak with the conference organizers. As the SIGs wore down, the buses had arrived to take us to the planned outing. The HighEdWebDev people had booked the local science museum for […]

Daniel Harvey, Eastern Illinois University This one’s for Monica: Easter IU not only supports podcasting for their instructors, but they have created an online CMS that allows instructors to to maintain their own feeds. It was scripted in PHP – allows for mp3s and most mp4 codacs. When I talked to him after the session, […]

Vectors on the Web

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Don Albrecht – U of Rochester Medical Center Polling was so good, that I decided to stick around for the next propeller hat presentation on SGV. Scaler vector graphics, in my opinion are the next step in web presentation. This W3C backed open-source implementation of Flash is created through XLM and play well with both […]

Polling and Feedback

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Daniel Frommelt – U of Wisconsin, Platteville Snuck over to the TPR track to hear about polling and feedback from a techie’s perspective. Dan was a very blunt, but impressive speaker and held the crowds attention the entire time. Even though he thought that polling was a waste of time, he found good was to […]

Interactive PDFs

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Cal Anderson – Truckee Meadows CC Finally, someone else from a CC. He being by running over the basics of PDFs (static vs. dynamic vs. interactive), but quickly ramps it up. Looks like the view version of acrobat pro includes an extra app called “Designer”. It makes creating PDF forms much more exact. Pixel locations, […]
