Note 1: Some of the download links in the article do not work. Scroll down to the comments to find a list from "mbiggs" that has alternative links to the download pages.

Note 2: After downloading the files, read these instructions on how to play the course, and open the SCO1\onlineLauncher.htm file in Edge. I was only able to get them to display properly using the Edge browser.  (much thanks to Marton Sagi for the pointer)

  2. Thank you very much for your work and time Steve Endow. It would be great to create a list of the users that you share above in order to follow whole people in Twitter with a single click!

    1. Interesting idea! I think I may have found a way to do that. It looks like it will require a Chrome Extension and a few clicks, but if it works, it should be much faster than following each account separately.

  3. Thanks for collecting all these great ressources in one place.
    Would it be possible to get all the RSS feeds as an OPML file? Would give everyone the option to quickly follow all the blogs.

    And if you've found a solution to follow all twitter accounts in a few clicks, please do share the approach.

    1. Hi Jeppe, thanks for the note.

      I haven't heard of OPML, but I will look into it. I'll have to see if the blogs have RSS feeds and whether I can assemble and maintain a list.

      The Twitter list seems to be more difficult. I believe I can create and share a Twitter "list", but it is very tedious to create one manually with lots of accounts through the Twitter web site. If you are aware of any good ways to share the list in a way that allows people to bulk follow, please let me know.
