Wordle

Filed under: Uncategorized — kevhickeyuk @ 12:11 pm

Wordle is a sites which can create a tag cloud from a series of text. The more times the word appears, the larger the word is. To see what I mean have a look at the example below which was created from Darwins Origin of the Species, thanks to Project Guttenberg for supplying the text.

I’ve known about this site for a while but it wasn’t till recently I saw a really good way of useing it.

We asked people to complete a survey where they could write about what limited their use of elearning. All the free text responces were put into wordle and the tag cloud showed the word “Time” far bigger than anything else. No Suprise.
