As the course proceeds I intended to to embed a clip from Youtube on the feelings on new technology.
The clip was just released for "Private Use" (?)  Checking the licence gives :

Standard Youtube licence,
giving the right to show the material just on Youtube and as I embed the clip, the film is still residing on Youtube.com.

It is also possible to grant a Creative Common-license that lets us handle Youtube clips in more ways.

Topic 1 Online participation and digital literacies


The methods of sharing knowledge and skills has always been of my intrest. Im an engineer in the subject of electronics and has been on this path since it became common to use microprocessors for common people, until today when almost everyone has enormous access to information worldwide.

I think its good to keep private an public spheres apart as we are "multiple personalities".
I have lots of intrests that I may not shere to everyone, and im not intrested in all stuff that others may think I have an intrest.

ONL shows me horizons that not already was in sight for me.

I dont have at  this moment any reflection to literature so far, but I find it conveniant to look up lectures and instruction film on Youtube etc as I have to learn new stuff or just remember complicated methods as I realize Its often faster and more efficient to see somone demonstrate on a subject rather than look for written material and spend time reading,
One example is how to handle the workwide spread use of the LMS Moodle, where it is easy to find Youtube clips on almost every procedure.


I reacently learned the worr Gamification / Edutainement for making online courses more attractive.
