wordle, on university focus


Word cloud accenting students, university and campus.Several weeks ago, Matt Pasiewicz posted on the Educause blog a tag cloud of text from University Home Pages. He created the cloud using Wordle.

Wordle is a fun little Java toy and the images (with proper attribution) it generates could have significant marketing uses. It takes text entered into a dialog box and creates a tag cloud with the size, color, and weight of the text based on frequency of occurrence. Just like a tag cloud.

Word cloud accenting research, technology, and information.It took me a while to get around to it, but I just grabbed the text from the "text only" version of the Penn State home page and ran it through Wordle. I used the available options to pick a color scheme for Penn State- to be fair, I guess I should've used grayscale. Draw your own conclusions; and by all means, give Wordle a try!
