Moderator training on Google+ Hangouts on Air

Nina Liakos and Vance Stevens hosted this HoA with only seven or eight live participants, but there were several who participated via the stream and engaged the live participants in an ongoing dialog which you can see at http://chatwing.com/vancestev

The embedded stream from YouTube is now our recording of the event

Those who wanted to join the HoA live were able to find its direct URL posted in the wiki spaces where they were told to go to access the chat. 

Others could

If you want to be IN the HoA you should check the social media sites such as http://webheadsinaction.org/live for the direct link from about half an hour before 1400 as I’ll post it there and wait for people to populate it. Find the direct link, click on it, and you’re in. If you’re not among the first ten you can listen to the stream and interact in the text chat and if we know you’re there we’ll try to make room for you in the HoA.

To understand better what this was about, please read, or at least look at the pictures, in these open educational resources:
