Koinup How-To: From Second Life to Wiki to Blog
Location: tangled up in code
A year ago, I would have been hard-pressed to explain WHY one uses a photo-sharing site, adds tags to Web 2.0 objects, and the like. Now, however, I get it.
If for no other reason, writers should use photo-sharing so media can be embedded in multiple sites. This makes our Pbworks wiki pages load faster and avoids a terrible issue I saw last fall: students giving photos similar names, uploading them to the wiki, and overwriting each other's works.
I've posted a new page to our class' Getting Started in SL guidebook: How to Upload to Koinup and embed the photos elsewhere, including at this blog client.
