Lifestreams are about your life and learnstreams are about the learning in your life.
A lifestream is a chronological view of your online (and even offline) activities that you want to share online. This includes a wide range of activities (e.g., shopping, concerts, sporting events, observations, photos, etc). You can include any activity that is a part of your life…it’s your life!
A learnstream is similar to a lifestream except that it focuses on activities that are related to a topic or topics that you want to share for your learning and the learning of others. You can focus on a particular topic (e.g., photography, web design) or you can take a broader approach to include many items that you’re learning about…it’s your learning!
