Hi there everyone!
Currently I am not teaching, so I have been working on making instructional videos - in between gardening and house keeping.
The topic is dyslexia. Later on I hope to cover my favorite Linux operating systems and software packages.
The videos are a bit goofy looking - my first efforts - but were fun to make. I used my iPhone to record video and audio, my iPad to make the music, but I used Musix for everything else . . . the Gimp, Audacity, Kino, and Cinelerra. This latest version of Musix is the best yet. I installed it on a used Craigslist computer and it is smokin!
I would also like to sing the praises of Jolicloud. Several months ago my six year old laptop finally completely died. So I started using an available netbook at home. It is an ASUS 904 that had XP on it. XP . . . . horrible horrible!! None of the apps fit the screen and the viruses . . . . oh my!!!
I had read about Jolicloud about a year ago and had always wanted to try it. It has an installation that installs from withing windows, so I was really easy to set up.
My husband got an iPad at the same time and he bought me one too. I love the iPad for the touch screen piano which is amazing for composing music, but for everything else, I much prefer Joli OS. This is such a great interface and the apps are fabulous.
