James Falkofske - Site Owner

PedagogyOnline.com provides tips, tools, techniques, and tricks for transforming eTeaching into eLearning.  On this site you will find articles, software tools, demonstrations, sample assignments and assessments, and links to interesting stories and websites. 

This top page also serves as a collection spot for articles which I post on other blog sites.

There should be a lot of great ideas and tools on this site - hopefully providing you with different ways of looking at your course designs.  As you explore this site, please remember that eLearning is about the activities which help student accomplish their goals (Learning Objectives) for a course through successful completion of the course Assessments.  Don't be too tempted to add in superfluous articles, links, and tools to your course sites -- as these may confuse and delay the learning process for your students.

Enjoy the site!

Facebook adding "remote log out" security

If you're receiving SPAM messages from your Facebook friends, don't blame them entirely. Spammers and hackers are creating applications which are asking Facebook users to enter in their Usernames and Passwords so that they can "authorize" applications and games to post to their pages. Well... once they have the credentials - they take over your account.

Facebook is adding a capability of Remote Log Out - so that you can see all the devices and connections logged into your account and "log out" specific devices and instances. This is also handy for people who store their passwords and then the preying eyes of roommates and family members simply go to Facebook have an automatic "in" to the site under your account.
