During the presentation, Tuba referred to the work of Joel Bloch, who was present at the online event:
Bloch, J. (2008). Blogging as a bridge between multiple forms of literacy: The use of blogs in an academic writing class. In D. Belcher & A. Hirvela (Eds). The Oral-Literate Connection: Perspectives on L2 speaking, writing, and other media interactions. . Michigan: The University of Mivhigan Press
Elluminate has been chosen over Hangout because there is a TILL Sunday Hangout event on ePortfolios at 15:00 that some MultiMOOC participants will be attending, and it will be easier to transition there from Elluminate rather than stopping one Hangout and joining another.
Dave talks here about his ideas on learning and differentiates the nature of what needs to be learned into David Snowden’s simple, complicated, complex, and chaotic. cMOOCs he said were expecially good at promoting learning at the complex and chaotic levels. Listen here and find out why.
Hangouts are created on the fly, so their URLs are not generated until just before the event. Normally they are shared within circles.
If Benjamin Stewart and/or Vance Stevens are sharing circles with you, there are two things you can try
you can Skype vancestev for more information
Also Vance will likely still be in Elluminate http://learningtimesevents.org/webheads/ for the first 15 min of this event, with the recording off, and you can possibly find me there for text chat directions to the Hangout
If all else fails, try this next event
(looks like a GR8 DB8 but the Hangout will be interactive, whereas the following, though highly recommended, will be equally as entertaining as a recording)
Sun, Jan 20, 2013 – 1500 GMT – IATEFL Webinar: ICT debate about IWBs
IWBs: a fantastic teaching tool or non-interactive white elephant? with Pete Sharma and Gavin Dudeney
Interactive whiteboards (IWBs) have been around for a long time now. Few technologies have attracted such controversy. For some, they are a powerful teaching aid, while for others they are nothing more than an expensive waste of space, hopefully soon to RIP. Join us for this fascinating debate on the merits and future of the interactive whiteboard!
Pete Sharma will be defending IWBs, and Gavin Dudeney will be opposing.
Regarding the recording, at the above link, there is the following notice
I scooped this blog post where I put the Elluminate recording link (and also the link to the BaW wiki page with the nice screen shots).
Incidentally, after the session ended, I copied and pasted all the captured web cam shots on our whiteboard to a Paint bitmap so I could tease them apart into a collage where everyone was represented, and that’s the image you see at the top of this post.
I scooped the post AFTER I had rendered the mp3 audio from the Elluminate recording (if you want to do that for your recordings, download Publish from the Elluminate site for free – only works on Apple though!!). I uploaded the mp3 to the Posterous blog (this one) on which I have installed Feedburner. That makes the podcast feed link which you can see in the sidebar.
That might sound complicated, but when you set up Feedburner and give it your blog URL it asks you if you are a podcaster, and just by ticking YES at that point, your blog becomes a podcast, where any media you upload will be included in its RSS feed.
Now an interesting affordance of Scoop.it is that if your post includes an audio file, it sometimes (not always, 90% of the time, and the other 10% drives me nuts) puts your recording up at Scoop.it in a media player so anyone hitting on the scoop can play the audio right there.
This is an annual EVO event where moderators for the EVO sessions listed at http://evosessions.pbworks.com meet from noon GMT in Google Hangout to talk about their sessions and take questions from interested participants.
Venue was to be decided, and turned out to be Google+ Hangout, Second LIfe, WiZiQ and Elluminate: http://learningtimesevents.org/webheads/, all skillfully juggled by master wizard behind the curtain Jeff Lebow.
Ten people at a time can be in a Hangout, but the event was streamed so that anyone could listen to the stream while it was being broadcast or later via the recording. The stream bounced in and out of Google+ Hangout, Second LIfe, WiZiQ, and Elluminate, where people met up to speak about their sessions and get help if they were having trouble with Google Hangout.
For professional development, it’s hard to beat the quality and range of sessions offered each year in TESOL’s Electronic Village Online. The sessions are free and open to all teachers. You don’t even have to be a TESOL member to participate. Vance Stevens provides you with a face to face introduction to this annual online event which starts 14 January, 2013.

MultiMOOC “applies connectivist and multiliteracies approaches to exploring recent developments and issues in open learning, and how these might apply to more conventional settings. The session is paced on Cormier’s 5 stages of MOOC participation: orient, declare, network, cluster, focus. Participants declare their personal goals for the course and trace their progress through eportfolios, either simple or elaborate. Any reasonable level of participation earns a badge in the course.”
In this recording, one of the moderators of the MultiMOOC session discusses with participants Nina, Susanna, and Lada how this session departs from others and why we call it a MOOC.
