I don't remember how I found the TILT TV blog, but I have to share this great resource! Danny Maas has created several screencasts related to educational technology. He has uploaded them to Google Video and provides them FREE for anyone to use! Here is his latest episode in which he demonstrates a simple, yet impressive project for beginning users of Excel in LESS THAN 9 MINUTES!

This is a fascinating site that enables you to view live pictures of the earth and moon through the use of satellite imagery. If I followed the directions on the site correctly, the image here should change throughout the day as the sun rises and sets.

It seems like my previous post with the demo video does not work with my Yahoo Briefcase. So I uploaded my Orbit MP video to Google Video. It was very easy to create a free account. Now that the video has been approved it is available on the Google Video website. They even generate the HTML code that allows me to embed the video here on my blog.
