'Do those who have less, give more?' - An Intermediate level video lesson, created in less than an hour.

October was a very busy  month, filled with new opportunities and experiences, but no time for blogging.  I've been teaching day and night, writing materials for a state of the art E-learning platform and have been interviewed about Online teaching for the British Council's 'English Agenda Podcast' series. I have also decided to experiment with the online language learning marketplace, italki and have created an account there.  It has been a very productive month. 

Due to my busy schedule, I decided to set myself a one hour challenge, to create an interactive lesson using a web app, in just one hour. Speedy lesson planning has never been one of my strong points, but thanks to eduCanon and a You Tube video, that a friend posted on Facebook (thanks Sarah), I am pleased to report that I succeeded.
