A Brazilians' Take on Web2.0 Sites

Enzo Silvia,  a Brazilian living in Atlanta, attended my session at the ASTD Conference. The session was titled “ Power of the People: Learning Revolution 2.0”. Enzo is an independent instructional designer working in the Atlanta area and he really gets the Web2.0 revolution in learning. It was a pleasure to chat with him...I am very fond of the Brazilians after my experiences with them at many Java One's and having visited and presented at Sun Tech Days in Sao Paulo 3 times over the last few years. In any case Enzo shared with me a list of web2.0 sites he uses to demo the web2.0 concepts to newbies...he suggested I use some of them in my sessions.....now ordinarily I would not list all these sites on my blog...but I have to tell you I was so impressed that Enzo literally just rattled these off the top of his head....very cool...here is his list:

Thank you so much for your kind comments. Again, these are just examples I thought of last minute. There are MANY other websites we could list here. Everyday we have more and more websites and mashups added to known websites. This is amazing for Education, since we can have learners create, act, interact, build knowledge dynamically and in collaborative environments. Keeping files and classes organized isn't as hard as it used to be for learners and teachers. LMS's are getting more sofisticated everyday anda data storage is growing at a fast pace. I can't wait to see what else we, educators (and leaners) are going to be able to discover and use in our classes... It's just the beginning of the revolution or evolution...

I like authorSTREAM for multimedia presentation sharing. PowerPoint Presentations can be uploaded to share or embed in your blog or site. Transition timings and audio are retained in the flash output.

For slide show sharing I think the most popular website is www.slideshare.com. I really like it. By he way, if you look for Web 2.0 or Education 2.0 (and other related terms) you'll find very interesting presentations there...

I'm sorry, I typed the wrong address for SldeShare, the correct address is: www.slideshare.NET

Lol, How could you know trivop without knowing the great http://www.tvtrip.com/

Good one, Fred! :)
There are just so many Web 2.0 websites out there that it is almost impossible to list all of them on a blog post. I guess for listing purposes websites like these are a good start: www.listio.com, www.go2web20.net, www.web2list.com, www.mashable.com or even my recent discovery: a fellow Brazilian citizen's list of Web 2.0 resources www.lista2.0br.com.br.
