1) GENERAL COMPUTING

Windows Vista: An FAQ for Nonprofits
"Windows Vista, Microsoft's first new major operating system (OS) since the launch of the Windows XP line in 2001, is due to hit stores on January 30. Vista's launch has already generated some questions about upgrading, new features, tech support, and whether now is a good time to migrate your computers to this new OS." To help you make informed decisions about Vista, TechSoup has answered some of the questions which they think nonprofits will be most concerned with.

Eleven Tips for Troubleshooting Software: Things to do before you call a tech-support hotline
"Your computer software - be it a Web browser or a donor database application - likely plays a crucial role in your nonprofit's day-to-day operations. So when software problems such as unexplained crashes and strange error messages begin to occur, your workday can unceremoniously come to a silent (or not-so-silent) standstill." TechSoup looks at some solutions.

2) PRESENTATION AIDS

Web Presentation Tools And Technologies: A Mini-Guide
"Web presentation tools and technologies provide the means to deliver any PowerPoint-based or similar type of visual presentation to an Internet-connected audience, no matter where participants are connecting from. Most web presentation technologies do away with requiring end users to have an installed copy of Microsoft PowerPoint and increasingly offer not just the ability to digitally distribute such presentations but also of creating them." Robin Good explores the options.

3) GRAPHICS

Understanding Images: A Guide to Color Formats
"Why does the color of your nonprofit's logo never look the same on the Web as it does in print? Is there a difference between CMYK and RGB? What does your printer mean when she talks about two-color versus four-color printing? And why on earth is your designer discussing "PMS" with you?" Brian Satterfield looks at common colour formats and best uses.

I see what you're saying
"Skype is a hugely popular program that allows you to make free phone calls to other Skype users anywhere and low-cost calls to anyone with a landline or mobile phone. It manages this amazing feat by routing calls over the internet, using a technique called voice over internet protocol (VOIP)." Helen Bradley walks you through the basics of installing and using Skype.

6) NEW INITIATIVE ANNOUNCEMENT: OER COMMONS

OER Commons is a free network of high-quality open teaching and learning materials. Created with and for educators, students, and learners, this broad selection of open educational resources for K-12 and higher education can be browsed, searched, and enhanced using collaborative social networking features, such as tags, ratings, and reviews.  

OER Commons is created by ISKME, a recognized leader in applying educational research to educational practice (www.iskme.org). Content on OER Commons is being developed by the world's leading universities (Carnegie Mellon, George Mason, MIT, Harvard, and UC Berkeley) and trusted education content providers (NASA Kids Science News Network, SERC, and WGBH).

At www.oercommons.org you will find a wide range of educational resources, from complete courses to learning modules to library documents, and from algebra to zoology, all in one place. There are discussion forums, reviews, and comments on a wide range of classroom materials, and user-generated tags to help quickly find what you're looking for. You can read and comment on blog entries about the "how and why" of open content, and see how others are using resources and sharing what works for them.

By bringing Web 2.0 features and open source technology to educational content, OER Commons offers a unique open content model that allows the best materials to rise to the top, through Top Ten lists for Featured, Highest Rated, Popular, and New items. It is the first comprehensive open learning network where teachers and professors (from pre-K to graduate school), as well as learners, can access course materials and collaborate to positively impact today's classrooms.
