Using Canvas or Moodle as an LMS for online teaching?

Hello All:I'm looking into Canvas and Moodle for teaching online.As you know, Moodle is open source. Canvas is what they call 'commercial open source.' You can go to the Canvas site here: http://www.canvaslms.com/You can use Canvas for free up to 500 megabytes without the chat function.Any thoughts on Canvas? Do you use Moodle or another LMS? They have a beautiful and intuitive user interface.I'm finding out from Canvas what the cost would be to go above…See More

The American Founders risked it all - their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor - forging a never-before-seen government.

They changed the world. It was a stunning, transformational moment in world history.

Now it’s our turn. We have a stewardship to fulfill.

PICKING UP THE TORCH

John Adams said, “Independence now and independence forever.” As we look at the sweep of history, are we aware of what we’ve been given?

We keep what we respect and value ...

Cadence Is an Art Form to Live and Work Beautifully

Posted on May 26, 2015 at 7:37am 0 Comments

Cadence is phrasing, rhythm, and flow.

Think about music ... melody and rhythm are composed to end and begin phrases, sections, and even movements.

Writing ... words and phrases flow in an almost musical cadence.

Speaking ... the modulation of the voice, slightly falling in pitch at times.

Dance ... there is beat, rhythm, and measures.

And even our work (and life) ... instead of allowing things to randomly happen to us, we can create cadence.

Flow. Rhythm. Momentum. Creative cadence is living and working with flow and beauty. It's an art form.

Where do we sense energy and joy? Pay attention.

Posted on April 29, 2015 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

As we move forward in our life and work, we discover those areas and activities where we are most energized and experience the greatest joy.

Take a look at the graphic I put together on the right … the golden arrow is a pathway – our quest to move towards our destiny with accuracy.

The line represents our exploring and experiencing different things in our questing. As we intersect with our destined pathway, we enjoy our highest energy and sense of purpose.

These experiences talk to us. This is the golden pathway we are looking for. The energy and joy we experience are clear indicators to us of our unique destiny.

There are other signs too that are speaking to us ... things like feeling alive, experiencing passion ... if we will only listen ……

Intentionally Use Positive Stress to Elevate to the Next Level

Posted on April 8, 2015 at 8:30am 2 Comments

In the realm of physical fitness, we increase our strength and endurance by intentionally using positive stress. We increase the weight on the resistance exercise. Our body is stressed, and of course it's temporarily uncomfortable. But then our physical system adapts to a new level of strength and fitness. The same is true with endurance exercise like running.

As we achieve a higher level of physical fitness, we reap the harvest of benefits throughout our life.

Intentionally using positive stress is good for us

Here's the thing though ...

Our body adapts to that level, and if all we do is continue with the same program of exercise, we will…

Brian,

Welcome to the Online Selling and ecommerce Group here at the 48 Days community.  I just looked at your site.  Love the niche and the site.  Both are great examples of the new online selling. It's not a picture and a price.  Instead it's about answering someone's problem, building trust and offering something of so much value that people want to purchase it from you.  Old fashion selling is dead, now it's about helping your customer purchase.  Excited to have you as part of our growing group.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the friend invite and the great advice on my question in the "Write It Forward" group. 

Have a tremendous day!

Hey, Brian, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks. I'm assuming your post is looking for guidance somewhere, but since you're not asking for anything and just leaving a link to your website, we consider it spam.
To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If everyone was doing that, the forums would be an awfully boring place, filled with links to member's websites.

I'd love to see a blog post here from you, perhaps expanding on something already on your website.

Thanks,
Justin Lukasavige

Hey Brian,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

PS One other thing...I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com. Feel free to check it out. I really think you'll get a ton out of both these resources.
