Hello all,

I just wanted to share this YouTube link from blogger, which teaches
someone to create a blog in less than two minutes. It is titled
"Blogger: How To Start a Blog"

Subject: [Technology 1152] List o' links

Thanks to the help of the folks on this list I have compiled a list of
links to sites that might help support learners in getting the basics
computer skills they might need to study online. (As can be seen from
the discussion there is a whole lot more that goes into success.) I know
there are of lists for building computer skills out there but it has
been a while since I have done this search and was hoping that there
would be a lot of new animated tutorials either on separate topics or
one that covered most. There are a number but many are for K-12.

I will also continue looking for the kind of thing Alpha Route offers
but as I understand it is only available to those in Canada. So Nancy,
if you know of something similar that can be used beyond the borders let
me/us know.

Here were the recommendations for the list followed by a link to a
breakdown of ones that I thought might be particularly helpful.

Recommendations from Larry Ferlazzo, Tommy McDonell, Michelle Faith
Brown and Viz

Larry Ferlazzo suggested:


My favorite one for English Language Learners is, by far, Dance Mat
Typing (http://www.bbc.co.uk/ schools/typing/). It has audio support.

Tommy McDonell found:

Some of the ones below come from here:

http://www.internet4classrooms.com/on-line_word.htm gives great
tutorials that you can print out.

http://its.leesummit.k12.mo.us/word.htm these are some nice looking

Learn the Net http://www.learnthenet.com/english/index.html which
has this:

ANIMATED....How the Internet works

Viz and Michelle Brown recommend:

Flash program can be downloaded from http://www.sense-lang.org/typing/
You can install it or use it online.

If anyone is interested, I went through the suggestions and selcted ones
that I thought might be most appropriate for adults, added a few and
organized them by topic. You can see this list at

You'll see that some of the oldies are still some of the goodies. But
please let me know if you have additions or comments.
