is great in that when uploading the video you can cross post to other common Web 2.0 tools for your Network. For example in one hit you can post the video to, post a link in, a photo of the video in flickr and a blog post for context. I've only just come across through the TALO google group and will be using it as a key tool in professional development from now on. Cross posting saves time and will alleviate the frustration many networked learning PD participants of having to jump between Web 2.0 accounts to post information to the network. Yes rocks thanks Leigh for putting me onto it...

Check out and how he has translated his networked PD into successfull learning outcomes for his students, in the space of two weeks!

I like the way Glen has imaginatively started to translate what he learnt to the curriculum for example using dfilm to link to a learning outcome, and most ahem coolly ;-) get his refrigeration students successfully using video to learn. Yes Glen Campbell rocks!
