Cool stuff you can do in Glow (Sharepoint) and other posts about where we should, can, could go with the next generation of online tools for Scottish Education.

Internet Explorer and Firefox Toolbar Alphas (with integrated Glow Search)

I’ve created two toolbars, one for Internet Explorer and the other for Firefox. These are for the Consolarium mainly but they also include links to other LTS content. These toolbars link to the Consolarium Blog, LTS Online Service, the Glow Blog, the short url service etc. The best thing about the toolbar, as it stands, is that it integrates with the new Glow Search and, just like the Google Search bar, it will keep track of your search history.

Creating Your Custom Glow Theme

In my last post I described how I created a custom theme for Glow. Attached in the zip below are the files I used to do it. If you have admin rights for your own Glow groups (and this includes your own MyGlow page) you can now customise it’s look just as you want. All it takes is a little .CSS knowledge.
