Friday Varia and Quick Hits

It’s a cloudy Friday morning in North Dakotaland and the sun seems to be struggling to make its way through my window and chase the morning darkness from my office.

So in the semi-darkness of my office-cave, I’ll offer a little gaggle of quick hits and varia.


  1. Hi Bill – regarding Scripto – it can be used for transcribing oral history recordings. You simply load a recording as an item, and the transcription box will be there when signed in. I’m using scripto in my historians’ craft this fall as a workbook. I’ve got it preloaded with a number of handwritten documents and audio recordings. Students in tutorial will work together to transcribe these, talking about what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, etc.

    It took a bit of jiggling, but I got it to work, so I expect it’s feasible for your materials!


  2. Shawn,

    Thanks!! I’ll look into then!
