As we go along we often stumble upon some cool software and resources. Our little blog is a place where we like to share those with you. Occasionally we may brag a little bit about the nifty completed projects or web applications we've developed. Hope you'll enjoy the read!
One of the most useful tools when working initially with clients and subject matter experts is the mind-mapping program Mindmeister. ** please note for confidentiality reasons, the image to the right is not readable; it is there to give you an idea of the structure and process of developing that structure using mind mapping **
We're counting down to July 1st! Many people think that this is a really busy time for Digilogue but the reality is that come July 1st, all our work is (fingers crossed!) done. If we have planned, implemented and tested to our usual standard, then the courses, teacher enrolment, content release, course approval, certificate deliverywill all happen quietly behind the scenes. Still, no room for complacency!

I attend a fair few courses and conferences. One thing I've learned about communication is encapsulated in one word - Drama!
I've seen dozens of speakers making excellent, sequential, instructionally-perfect presentations - excellent, but ultimately forgettable. Occasionally I've seen someone stand at the podium and do something dramatic - as simple as telling a short story, making an analogy, bringing some unusual prop(s), showing some dramatic images and speaking around them. This is impactful and connective drama - you are engaged, connected, alive and receptive.
