I have been helping lots of people in their journey of technology within my community of non-users. So, what have I learned? Here’s the list of must use:
1. Must have a google account with an email account.
New calendar group - the ability to share and can be embedded in a website
Google Forms and Spreadsheets
Collect contact information on one sheet. Downloadable.
2. Website Development
Weebly - fantastic tool for the beginner. That's what this site is created in. If you pony up the money you can password protect it and have contact information password-protected.
Smore - The ability to send lots of information and post on website. Embeds and on the back end you can see who has opened it and for how long
Evite - Who’s coming to your event? Looks great on mobile devices.
It's great to be back in create mode. I was asked to present at the IETC in Iowa virtually. They were going to an old video I created two years ago. When I looked at the video (in horror) I realized I had to update and create NEW elements for the presentation.
If I was going to ask the attendees to create and I used an old material - that would NOT work. SO, I got back to creating a new song, new visuals, and put a movie together for the opening and closing. I used old footage, but created a slicker movie.
We must always be in the mind of creating and updating, updating and creating.
SO - what have you updated recently and what have you created?
