Some cleanup and ODEO support

We've made some fixes to the SkillsFeed:

  • author is not forced to join the lesson to have full access to it

  • you can't rate your own lesson - we're sorry :)

  • Slideshare changed its layout, which caused problems with our bookmarklet - it's fixed now

  • duplicated URL and EMBED submission using bookmarklet is detected and reported as an error

Additionally, ODEO is now supported by SkillsFeed bookmarklet. Contributing podcast as a lesson is very easy now!

Express yourself!

We've just updated the service. Now you can provide URLs to your Flickr photo (100 x 100 pixels) and small logo (16 x 16 pixels).

Your logo will be visible for example in lessons listings, discussion entries and lower positions of students and teachers rankings.

SkillsFeed #1

Your photo will show up on top positions of rankings and on your public profile page.

Better YouTube, Google Video and Slideshare integration

New version of our service has been just released. Integration with YouTube, Google Video and Slideshare sites has been improved. Now, after using our bookmarklet, you get all needed fields filled in by the content of proper YT and SS fields (title, description, thumbnail, tags, embedded code). For GV movies only title, embedded code and thumbnail are automatically retrieved. Additionally, you have to join the lesson to watch the movie or presentation.
