TED Videos. Great for inspiration. Each one only lasts 20 minutes, and it’s an opportunity to hear some great speakers on all sorts of topics. If you know how to (I use trial and error) you can download the audio onto your iPod and listen while walking, cycling, at the gym etc. Try these for starters, or just jump straight in.
Nancy White’s blog is choc full of ideas about on-line facilitation, uses of wiki’s and other approaches for collaboration, and visual facilitation to boot.
Meeting Wizardis a great tool for organising a meeting between a number of people. It sends each person you want to invite an email with a link to a web page where they can indicate availability or not, then identifies the best time for the most number of people. Brilliant!
Matt Moore’s podcast with Nancy White and co about blended facilitation – that means blending face-to-face facilitation and on-line approaches.
And while we’re on podcasts – a plug for WinkiPod – where Geoff Brown and I play with podcasting.
Oh, I nearly forgot iStockphoto – a great place to source inexpensive and high-quality images to use on your blog, for presentations etc.
