My Network Learning Project - Final Post

How to Sell on eBay

This network project taught me a lot. Not only did I learn how to post an item on eBay, but I became more familiar with the functions on my chrome book especially with the uploading, renaming and editing of photos. My initial goal was to do everything using my Chromebook, if possible. Unfortunately I was unsuccessful in that goal and spent A LOT of time trying to videotape my network learning project using a power point in Google hang-outs. You may have even seen my testing videos or randomly have been invited to a hang-out! And I thank Amy for posting a video on how to go about doing that but it just didn't work out for me. I did however learn more about hang-outs on air and would love to use that feature in the future.  My final project was done using screen cast-o-matic along with my power point. It was my first time using a screen cast program. Please view below the steps I took in learning about my project.

Now that I know the process I plan to post more items on ebay and hopefully make a small profit!


  1. Hi Elizabeth,
    I had problems doing a screen cast as well. The Chromebook does not support java, yet when we search on chrome apps for a screen cast program it refers us to a java supported app. I really struggled with the YouTube/Hangout process. It took me 4 takes. 2 of them only showed my picture the whole times... Imagine my chagrin after 8 minutes of narrating... And even when I did it right, the program cut off my whole introduction, though I carefully counted out the 10 seconds it allowed before recording. So you did very well. I also was doing a training for staff and gave my work # out for support, forgetting that these cast are public. lol This should be fun. Best of luck with your Ebay sales!

  2. Beth I thought it was clever to narrate a power point,, great idea and thanks for the info. I too have wanted to learn how to post to eBay! It seems fairly easy.
