  2. 2. The Problem <ul><li>My library is part of the court IT system </li></ul><ul><li>Library has no Internet page, only intranet </li></ul><ul><li>Impossible to send unique URL’s to anyone outside of our network </li></ul><ul><li>I wanted to share legal research tutorials, but needed a way to save and attach a unique URL </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Solution <ul><li>A giant brainstorm leads straight to Flickr… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Perfect solution because each photo, set and collection have their own URL </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy to convert text or photos within a .ppt presentation into a .jpg file </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Great way to store and share files </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Accessible from anywhere for teaching </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Creating Tutorials in Flickr <ul><li>Convert PowerPoint slides to .jpg files </li></ul><ul><li>Upload slides individually in reverse order into Flickr </li></ul><ul><li>Enter metadata for each slide, or batch edit if possible </li></ul><ul><li>Save slides as labeled sets </li></ul><ul><li>Create a collection to house the sets </li></ul>
  5. 5. Viewing & Using Tutorials <ul><li>My personal Flickr page: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.flickr.com/photos/pandora12/ </li></ul><ul><li>Tutorials are viewable as individual slides in my photostream </li></ul><ul><li>Tutorials are kept as labeled sets within a larger collection called “Legal Research Tutorials” </li></ul><ul><li>See the tutorial as a slideshow by clicking the icon </li></ul>
  6. 6. Flickr Strengths <ul><li>Easy to sign up and use, from anywhere </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to add notes to your slides </li></ul><ul><li>The “share this” function allows you to send to a pre-set group or just grab the link </li></ul><ul><li>You can create groups to push out your tutorials to a wider audience – videos, too! </li></ul><ul><li>See a count of how many views your tutorial is getting </li></ul>
  7. 7. Flickr Weaknesses <ul><li>Links are difficult to work with </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can’t access them in slideshow </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Must use “notes” or description field to create hotlinks </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The uploader tool may not work on your computer </li></ul><ul><li>Adding the metadata is cumbersome </li></ul><ul><li>The slideshow can look cluttered </li></ul><ul><li>For teaching purposes, this idea is static </li></ul><ul><li>Can’t tell exactly who is looking at your tutorials </li></ul>
