New Features Added to Google Wave: More useful for e-Learning

Google’s newest features for Wave:

  1. Read-only [or full access] capabilities
  2. Restore from Playback [to correct mistakes]
  3. Undo/Redo
  4. Reply-only (coming soon!)

There are several uses for these features in e-Learning, whether during development or during delivery of instruction.  Read-only would be important as-is to a designer conducting a need assessment or a focus group, or simply managing a group of subject-matter experts. It would also be useful to project managers who have set up a wiki or other control documents in a wave.  In addition, the Wave team at Google reports that it is planning to introduce a third access setting called “Reply-only” that would let users add new blips (individual messages), but prevent them from editing blips they did not create. The team is also re-designing the interface to let the wave creator change permissions for several participants more easily. When available, these will be very important to managing synchronous events in a wave.  The combination of read-only and restore is most useful at this point for keeping a discussion on-track. The wave creator can change permissions for participants as needed, and then restore the wave to a point before the drift off-topic began.

Facebook Connect for Moodle

Embed a Facebook Connect widget into a Moodle block.  Created a sticky block in Moodle, and then added this HTML code to a block that displays in my student’s “My Moodle” page.  The code uses a yourminis.com widget, that is embedded in the block, that students can use to pull in their Facebook data (inside the block).

Visit here for the widget for the block.
Scroll down and click on “Copy Me” to grab the embed code for your Moodle block.
