Play with your music MOOC

I just signed up for this free MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) called Play With Your Music. 

It is supposed to be a course teaching you how to make and manage music loops, something I expect to be terrible at, but also fun at the same time.

It looks interesting and is supposed to be all about learning how to make music with current online tools. It doesn't require singing, otherwise the rest of the people in my potential group are in for a serious shock, and earplugs are going to be needed.

Still I find these learning opportunities fun, and pretty stress free. Its a nice way to learn something new without resorting to doing it all by your lonesome.

Online Clocks

I have used this site for an online count down clock

Its pretty good, and simple to use on your smartboard/teamboard. A teacher at school asked me to find a visual clock that looked better than just counting down numbers. We found this one, which is a nice big pie count down, and looks much better.

Both have a open in full screen mode which is great.

Just a minute ago I realized that underneath the link to the actual timer, amid the ads spread all over the site, there are links to a PILE of other clocks, including a candle, bomb, and some other things.

Just something simple that I thought you might enjoy using on your boards.
