For today’s Daily Connect, create a doodle/illustration of some kind and find a new (or old) connected friend to share it with. You could make your doodle with technology, with paper, or find some new surface to doodle on (someone mentioned Mud Doodles in CLMOOC. We’d like to see that). Have fun. Doodle away.

(Photo by Kevin for #SilentSunday)  While we certainly encourage connecting with other CLMOOC folks, we also know that many CLMOOCers love the outside world. For this Daily Connect, make a connection with Nature — a flower, a tree, an animal, a habitat, a season. Capture that connection in whatever way inspires you: a poem, a […]

Alan Levine, aka CogDog, always has the coolest ideas. And I am sure he won’t mind us using his What Are Your Ingredients? Thimble Remix for the Daily Connect. (It helps that the Daily Connect idea is based on his Daily Create). If you haven’t used Mozilla’s Thimble, it is a remixable web/media creation site. […]

This prompt comes from an unexpected activity from CLMOOC — someone shares a drawing and others use that drawing as the basis for some art. So, for this Daily Connect, why not use one of the three shared below and make art. These come from Wendy, Melvina and Susan. And of course, the ancillary idea […]
