Learning2gether Episode 54
For a good idea what this will be like, check out the recording of
- the one that Jeff Lebow held last Wednesday (http://edtechtalk.com/node/4988)
- or this one the other day with Stephen Downes http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/16011207
If you haven’t tried Google+ it’s worth checking out Google’s latest big connectivity tool.
- More information at the MOOCast Studio: http://edumooc2011.blogspot.com/p/moocast-studio.html
- and more about Hangouts here:
- Meet from noon GMT
- at http://tappedin.org for further instructions
- or at Jeff’s EduMOOCbridges studio
- Start Hanging Out from 13:00 GMT
Where? We’ll be Hanging Out in Google+
Vance will be in http://tappedin.org to help people get connected. Here are some things you need to prepare:
- If you’re not on Google+ yet you’ll need an invitation. We can arrange that for you via http://tappedin.org, where we’ll hold our usual back channel from noon GMT.
- You’ll also need the browser plugin from http://google.com/talk.
- Finally, your experience might be a lot happier if you use Google Chrome as your browser.
@eveweb “Very frustrated with the Google+ hangout attempt today 😦 @jefflebow @vances @nelliemuller ” wanna troubleshoot it Sunday 1300 GMT?

Thanks for sharing this.Is auto-SMS sent to circles if any post or commented is put on g+?
<div dir="ltr">Thanks for your comment Dillip. I've received notice of it via e-mail and I'm replying here via email as well, one of the conveniences of Posterous, and why I think this blog service is especially nice for promoting conversation in online or blended learning environments (so easy to converse in email and have that conversation appear at your blog.)<div> <br></div><div>I know that from using Posterous with participants in a course where Posterous was the main blog and in order to answer questions like Dilip's I'd have to USE Google Plus as well. At this stage we're merely exploring it. Jeff would be the main man to answer this question at the moment. Among us he is furthest along in his explorations.</div> <div><br></div><div>I'm sure if anything was auto-sent to circles it would have be be configured that way. The idea behind circles is that you can have separate lives online, unlike with Facebook where the kindergarten kids you teach during the day can see what your night-time rave friends are posting. Circles are an anecdote to that. I know a lot of people, like Jeff and others, are using G+ as a more comfortable surrogate for Facebook.</div> <div><br></div><div>If you find an answer to your question, or any others, post them here, </div><div>Vance<br><br></div></div>
Hi Vance!I’ve been enjoying watching this amazing ‘Hangout’. It really looks great to communicate and feel like you’re meeting at home. Thanks for sharing this here in your Posterous blog. I like this space for blogging also. Though, blogger also has this function – posting from e-mail now.
<div dir="ltr">Hi Nina,<div><br></div><div>Thanks for your comment. When you say Blogger has this function, which one? I don't think it posts from email does it? That's a nice feature of Posterous, really facilitates interaction. Also, you can podcast with Blogger but as far as I can see you need to host your media elsewhere. Posterous hosts your mp3 files. But the downside it it doesn't seem to have enough bandwidth to deliver them. It streams them ok, but I'm having trouble accessing the RSS feed. If you have feedback let me know your experiences.</div> <div><br></div><div>Vance</div><div><br><br></div></div>
Hi Vance,<br><br>As to RSS I do know too little about it.<br><br>As to Blogger, yes it is possible to post right from the email account. I like this feature of Blogger as well as of Posterous.<br><br>In Blogger: settings ==> Email&Mobile ==>scroll down to Posting Options<br> add <b>secretWord</b> and check<b> Publish emails immediately</b><br> That's it.<br><br>The best,
I’ve just sent this email to my blog through my account, take a look. It works pretty good.http://1morelcourse.blogspot.com/2011/07/re-feature.html
