COVERITLIVE

Screen-shot-2010-01-13-at-12.29.49-AM1

There are various efficient blogging tools which can be introduced in class to our students; with the prime aim being that of helping them becoming more confident in sharing their own opinions and ideas. I usually use WordPress as a blogging tool, but I also came across another very interesting one: CoverItLive.

CoverItLive allows students to gather knowledge and information from different online tools such as Wikis, other blogs and so on, moderate and curate them and eventually publish them on their blog. One of its prime advantages is that it supports interactive communication amongst several persons at the same time. Students are given the possibility to register for a free trial and can eventually pay to buy it. For a free trial they need to select the GetStartedForFree option and sign in each time; otherwise, they need to register. This live blogging tool covers live events and consists of live readers from hundreds of countries. It can be directly connected to other applications such as live streaming, social stream, LiveBlog, Facebook chat, LiveContentWall, live Q & A, LiveScores and Broadcast. It can also join ScribbleLive, so that students can have access to content in a more engaging and interesting way.

Its obvious advantage is that one can be part of his real-time engagement solutions. It can be directly embedded within ones website; furthermore, you can comment directly at instant time. Respondees can respond back even through polls. It is considered on YouTube as “real-time event leader”.

    Besides the usual blogging features, CoverItLive provides other useful elements which may come in use. From what I can see, the constant communication between members is a feature which will definitely be useful when students are gathering knowledge as they may share whatever they found between themselves easily while they are still in the blogging environment.
