Wordle - Word Clouds

Wordle is a web application which will take text which you provide and will turn it into a "Word Cloud".  This makes very nice graphics for a wide variety of applications.  Look for it HERE.    You can see examples of Word Clouds that have been developed by going to the Public Gallery.  http://www.wordle.net/gallery

My YouTube Channel

I had some questions about how to get to my YouTube Videos.  If you are interested you can follow this link:

Right now the videos are focused on HRM 666, a class on staffing and in particular on the more technical / statistical portions of that class.

YouTube Video Picked Up by the Open University of the Netherlands

The Open Universiteit Nederland (Open University) has asked my permission to use my YouTube Video on HR Planning - Markov Analysis.  They will be publishing it for educational purposes on a secured password protected network, the intranet site for a course on Selection.  I have given my permission.

Tegrity Recordings

There is a cool program that is integrated into Blackboard called "Tegrity". I just finished recording a 10 minute segment ... a voice over for a PPT slideshow explaining to my HRM 666 students more about the final project requirement that I just uploaded to Blackboard. I am hoping that this will provide my students with information that will help them. We will see.

Tegrity is VERY easy to use and I am going to try to use it more often. Right now I prepare and upload the same sort of thing to YouTube and I have worried about making information TOO public. I'm really torn on whether to make the public or private. Any feedback that you would like to provide would be appreciated.
