Hmmm. Today, I tried to use the Aviary image editor to comment on how much I love the miniature van.

My Van.egg  on AviaryMy Van.egg on Aviary.

This didn't work out so well. The tool was really hard for me to use, which might be because I didn't watch the tutorial. I ended up thinking I should have just made a Glog about this.

I'm glad I tried it because I planned to have my students use this to make in-line-type comments on print advertisements, but then I realized they should really use Glogster for that. Way easier.

Okay. Good talk. Boring blog, but good talk.

Interesting because I tried two different application (???) on Aviary and wasn't even as successful as you. Actually you had success. I had complete frustration and meltdown.

Good to know. But what actually IS Aviary?

Well, that's "New Media" for you. Sometimes it is awesome. Other times, you have to squint at it to read the words and it makes your head hurt.

Aviary is a suite of tools at Aviary.com

I like the podcasting machine, but I can't figure this out for the life of me. Bummage!!

This is why it is so important to try assignments on the WWWInterweb before you assign them. I can't tell you how often in classes at the U I've been assigned to do something on cloud-ware that is virtually un-doable because of how crappy the application is.
