  1. 1. Metatutorial
  2. 2. The Navigation Bar <ul><li>Home = where the blog is. </li></ul><ul><li>Archives = here you can find posts (or entries) organized by months, days, etc. This is useful to retrieve old posts. </li></ul><ul><li>Self-produced = links to some learning materials that I created. </li></ul><ul><li>CV = pretty obvious. </li></ul><ul><li>Projects = projects I am (was/will be) involved in. </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching = information about my teaching/office hours at the UPV. </li></ul><ul><li>You/Tu = Have anything to share with us about foreign language learning? (no matter if you are a teacher or student) If you feel like collaborating & becoming a GUEST BLOGGER, please visit this section. </li></ul><ul><li>Help?= This is where you are now. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Sidebar <ul><li>Keyword/content search within blog posts. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Sidebar <ul><li>This site is AnswerTips-enabled: Answer Tips are small bubbles of information that you'll get by double-clicking any word. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Sidebar <ul><li>As I said before, a blog is a user-generated dynamic website where content is updated frequently, just like a personal diary would. It has a diary/journal style: posts or entries (messages in the blog) are in reverse chronological order (latest to oldest) and are organised by categories. For instance, within &quot;Have a laugh&quot; category, you'll only find those posts that I categorized as such, and so on so forth. Thus, categories are a structural and navigational aid: they help you choose the topic field you're interested in. </li></ul><ul><li>N.B: The number in parenthesis refers to the number of posts in that category. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Sidebar <ul><li>Urban Dictionary is an online Internet dictionary whose definitions are written by users. Most words and phrases featured on Urban Dictionary are slang, particularly new, urban, or ambiguous terms. Urban Dictionary is the &quot;Internet's unofficial slang authority&quot; for definitions. The dictionary was founded by Aaron Peckham and went on-line in October 14 2001.One of the features that I really like is that words with multiple definitions are listed in order of users' thumbs-up or -down votes. So it's a user-generated dynamic sort of dictionary, therefore, a 2.0 tool. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember it's a slang dictionary. Please, for standard English or standard Word of the Day services, visit Merriam-Webster, Oxford or Cambridge sites. </li></ul><ul><li>The sidebar shows an auto-updating Urban Word of the Day (i.e. each day different). </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Sidebar (Tags vs. Categories) <ul><li>A tag is a keyword that is related to the specific content of your post. Thus, a post can be in For Learners category, but is tagged with &quot;machine translation&quot; and &quot;Javier Echeverría&quot;. </li></ul><ul><li>Question Where?= Categories: they help you find where posts are (according to topic fields). </li></ul><ul><li>Question What?= Tags: they are keywords that tell you what's about. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Sidebar (Tags vs. Categories) <ul><li>For instance, the rooms in a house can work as categories, containers where you can find a wide range of objects. The kitchen is a category, and in the kitchen you have cupboards where you can find food. But how do you know what's in each cupboard? You tag it: you may write &quot;sugar&quot;, or &quot; pasta&quot; or &quot;cutlery&quot;...etc. Or take your studying room for instance: you have stored your files in your studying room, so you know that your files and notes are in the studying room category and not in the bedroom one. But once you are in your studying room, how do you know that your Heat Transfer notes are in this file or in that one? Pretty easy,you tag them: you write 'keywords' on the files or folders that tell you what those notes are about. </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Sidebar (Tags vs. Categories) <ul><li>So tags are metadata = descriptors of a given object. You'll see that web 2.0 is about tagging. When you go to YouTube and type 'Southpark' in the Search box, YouTube will start searching inmediately among tags specified by users and only those results that match the tag 'Southpark' will show up . </li></ul><ul><li>Tagging is not a new thing, world wide known  Dymo is all about tagging. I'm sure you tag more than you actually realize. See this . </li></ul>
  10. 10. The Sidebar <ul><li>If you use Technorati to add favorites, you can fave (add as favorite site) this blog in Technorati by clicking on this icon. Technorati is a search engine for searching blogs, blogs posts, etc. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Footer <ul><li>The most important element for the reader in this footer is Feed me icon. In a nutshell, it goes like this: I guess you have a lot of favorite websites, newspapers, blogs, etc. but the only way to know if these sites had new content was to visit them one by one. Now you don't have to do that, there's a new piece of software called RSS aggregators or RSS readers or Feeds readers that get the latest headlines and multimedia content in one place, as soon as its published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from. Cool, huh? </li></ul>
  12. 12. The Footer <ul><li>Many websites have links labeled &quot;XML&quot; or &quot;RSS&quot; or &quot;Atom&quot;. All of these are ways of saying that you can find out about updates to that site without having to visit the site in your web browser.  This feature is referred to as &quot;syndication&quot; or &quot;aggregation&quot;. Sometimes it's just called subscribing. And these days, instead of one of these words, lots of sites will use a little orange button like this: </li></ul><ul><li>It's also common to see buttons that say &quot;RSS&quot; or &quot;XML&quot;. All these links and buttons mean the same thing: The site you're viewing has a feed available. </li></ul>
  13. 13. The Footer <ul><li>So, if you click on my feed icon, you'll get the following feed page: </li></ul>
  14. 14. The footer <ul><li>The only thing you have to do is to click or select the RSS Reaser you use. For instance, I use Google Reader, so I'd click on &quot;Add to Google&quot; and that's all. For more information on this great tool (which is still not enough, believe me), please visit: </li></ul><ul><li>Six Apart Feeds Help  BBC Help on Feeds   Qué es un feed y para qué sirve RSS navegará por ti </li></ul>
  15. 15. The blog post: comment function <ul><li>Blogs are user-generated sites. Blogs allow readers to leave comments on a given post. Thus, if you are a reading a post and feel you have something to say about it, click on the icon “comment” to do so (this icon is placed under each post). You can comment on comments too…: </li></ul>
  16. 16. The blog post: comment function <ul><li>In this blog, you have to be registered in order to leave comments. It's free and easy.When you click on the Comment icon, you’ll be asked to Log in. Click on ‘Log in’ and you’ll get the following message: </li></ul>
  17. 17. The blog post: comment function <ul><li>If you haven’t registered yet (= if you don’t have opened an account for this blog), you have to create one. Click on “Register” and you’ll get the following message. Just write a username and your email account. The password will be emailed to you (to the email account you have just provided). Password can be changed afterwards, once you log in. </li></ul>
