Snow clouds, word clouds January 13, 2010

Wordle: https://ilsmatters.wordpress.com/feed/

For those of you who haven’t come across Wordle before, give it a go. Great fun for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. Just provide a URL or a piece of text. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.

We’re not saying you should use it to try to pull out the important themes from a piece of academic writing… but you could do that.

This word cloud is from the RSS feed for this blog (https://ilsmatters.wordpress.com/feed/). Just look how available everything is in January at Peirson Library!

What fun! But maybe also a serious use. Pasting in an article or a speech gives you a different perspective on what you are reading
