Blog Face Lift

I'm putting a new face on the blog. Up to this point, I haven't really done a lot with the blog. The original intention of the blog was to provide a place for students to collaborate, communicate, and share information. Since I have recently learned to podcast and vodcast, I am going to make an attempt to convert this blog to a vlog. For those unfamiliar with a vlog, it is simply a video log that can be subscribed. In other words, if you have downloaded a program like FireAnt or iTunes (commonly referred to as podcatchers), you can subscribe to the vodcast and each time you open your podcatcher it will automatically go and retrieve the latest postings which you can then watch on your computer via the program or download to your iPod. The beauty of downloading to an iPod is that you now have portable content.

The one thing I want to make clear about this transition is that it is not an attempt to produce professional video. This video is simple and to the point. No flashy transitions or cool music. Vodcasting is simply a new media that allows you to take your content (educational or not) on the fly. For those of you with MP3 players don't feel left out. I'm also planning to post a few podcasts here that will be downloadable to your MP3 player.

If you find the first few videos or MP3 files useful, please post a comment. If you find them useless, boring, and think that they generally suck, then please post that comment also. I'll create new videos/MP3s or abandon the vodcasting/podcasting idea based on the feedback I get from you.
