Enhancing use of tools in the cloud

Below are short videos (we call them cloud concepts) to assist you in enhancing your digital capability in using tools available for cloud learning - for example, how to use Twitter, how to tether an iPhone, or how to use the CloudDeakin ePortfolio. Not everything can be learnt in this way, but it is helpful to get exponential up-skilling where staff and students become co-learners and co-teachers.

In addition, we are always keen to have new cloud concepts, so we encourage Deakin staff and students to make their own brief cloud concepts, and share them at this site. Contact Deakin Learning futures: email learningfutures@deakin.edu.au
