The blog is really cool - where did you get those mini media player skins from? I want!!!

I'm glad you like the blog idea. It's just an experiment really, an attempt to try out educational blogging in a safe environment.

The mini media player I'm using on the blog is called a 'dew player'

Here are some simple instructions on how to embed one:

1. Upload your mp3 to your blog.

2. Go to the following page: and download the dew player you want (normal, mini, multi).

3. Upload it to your blog.

4. Copy the URL of your mp3 file from your blog onto the dew player page.

5. Click OK to generate the necessary code for your blog.

6. Paste this code either into the body of a post or into a sidebar.

7. Make sure you have the Macromedia Flash player installed on your computer, otherwise it won't work.

It's a good idea to include a download link as well. e.g To Download: Right Click and Save Target As...

Hope that helps.

Best wishes


P.S Odeo also have an audio player, but I prefer the look of the dew player personally.

Hi Joe,

I've attempted a similar idea with mobile phones but ran into problems transferring the quicktime audio file to itunes for encoding. (I use a mac powerbook). Do you or anyone out there have this knowledge.

Hi Adam,

I use dBpowerAMP converter software at to change file types from say wav into mp3. It's very useful and easy to use. You have to pay for it, but it's not expensive.

I'm certainly not an expert on iTunes. I would recommend you contact someone like Ewan McIntosh.

Best wishes



I wanted to ask how you get your animations on your blog


Hi Adam,

All the animations are from Animation Factory. I've been promoting the images on my various conference appearances in the last two years. You pay about $110 for the first year and then it is about half that for subsequent years. You also get to choose a free gift each time you resubscribe. I think they are perfect for language teachers as you get to choose from about 400,000 images in the whole collection. They are constantly adding to them too. For the subscription fee, you get access to video clips, PowerPoint templates and seamless backgrounds. Very cool.

Best wishes
