Final Eight

To my readers:

We are now down to 8 Courseware Development groups due to the following reasons:
  • Nuvvo has been apparently deactivated
  • Konnects has apparently gone to a paid-membership-only platform
Please continue to join and participate in the other groups as desired.

Thanks - Ted

Just Don't Overdo It

Some of you are on Facebook. Most of you who are on Facebook probably like to play games - usually, the price is right (free!). As long as you don't overdo it, I highly recommend The Sims Social from Electronic Arts - you can learn a lot from this game (wow- eLearning!):

  1. The object is to enhance your property (indoors and outdoors), and to maintain it. You learn cooperation because without the help of Facebook friends who also play, you will get nowhere.
  2. You learn organization because various things you buy have to be put in their proper place.
  3. You learn maintenance because various items need to be cleaned and/or repaired, and outdoor spaces need to be kept weed-free.
  4. You learn budgeting because you have coins and points that can be spent in a variety of ways.
  5. You even learn a bit about relationships, i.e., what type of in-game friendships you should have, and should not have, depending on your actual relationships, both online and real-world!

Have fun, and remember, it's only a game!
