Learning while Facilitating

If they ever found out, they might charge me to facilitate workshops or presentations.  I find that, no matter what I do, I always end up learning something new.  This past week at the OTF Summer Camp was no exception.

One of the coolest things that I learned came from a request from @Gill_Ville during the session.  She had started a Flickr account and wanted some way to show her photostream on the wiki that she was creating as a participant of our session.

So, we tinkered a bit and then stumbled across Roy Tanck’s Flickr Widget.  Using it is a piece of cake – once you make sure that your Photostream is public!

It’s just a matter of going to the widget creation websiteand fill in the blanks.

The only challenging this is finding the URL to your photostream and pasting it into the page.  After that, it’s just a matter of determining the size of the widget and then generating the embed code.

From the very beginning, we indicated to the group that they’ll be the master of the embed after three days and this was just another example.

Roy Tanck‘s Flickr Widget requires Flash Player 9 or better.

Click on any of the rotating pictures to see it full size.  It’s a blingy way to display your images.  @kellmoor approves.
