  1. Hi.

    I came across your blog on a search for image compression within Word.
    But you seem to offer more value than that for me: I have an IT background but have recently moved into teaching English to speakers of other languages. I can see from your tag map and other references (e.g., to Moodle) that you’re into e-learning.

    Suggestion: how about an entry in the blog’s “About” page? At present, it says, “This is an example of a WordPress page …”

    You seem to have some high quality content … good wishes,


  2. Hi David

    I love the resources on your site and often direct teachers to them. I used your helpsheet on “How to record a sound bite into a Word document” and customised my toolbar for audio-file marking. But now I’ve ‘upgraded’ computer and have Office 2007 – and can’t work out how to do the same thing.

    Can you help?

    • Hi. The answer is that yes it is possible to do the same thing in Office 2007 as I helped someone acheive this, but I cannot remember the steps that I took, and at the moment I don’t have access to office 2007 to try again. As soon as I do get access I will work this out again and re-blog the method.

      Glad you like the resources.

  4. Hello Dave,

    Really appreciate your useful, well-communicated information. Very helpful, thanks.

  5. Dave,

    You da man! Thanks so much for your much appreciated asisstance! Your formula worked just perfectly! Cheers!

  6. Just found your blog, Dave, when I Googled “VLE names” and totally get your reasoning why VLEs shouldn’t have a name. I was actually looking for inspiration because the Learning Technology guys at Southampton Solent University are revamping the VLE and want to rename it (it’s currently called MyCourse….) and wanted suggestions. I posted a link to your blogpost instead….hope that’s OK!

    Anyway, I did a scan of your other posts and I reckon I’ll be back to glean some more wisdom.

    Nice work, thank you!


  7. Dave, I have a question/need help with google sheets. I have 2 separate documents. 1 document (Players document) is for my basketball players to record all of their shots. (makes and misses) I have it set up so after each day the totals are added up at the bottom (day 1 – 200 shots, day 2 -100 shots…total at the bottom = 300). the 2nd document is for the coaches…this document (Coaches document) is for only the coaches to see. This one i would like to keep just the totals of every player. So i would have a list of names with their individual totals listed next to their name. My problem is i do not know how to get the Players totals to automatically be linked over to the coaches document. Is there a way to do this? I can link from sheets in the same document but I cannot do it from 2 separate documents. I hope this makes sense. Any help would be great
