On Sunday, October 9, I had the pleasure of hosting Susan Hillyard talking on the trials and tribulations of opening your own on-line teacher training academy. In her presentation she made an impressive case for teaching through drama.

Susan Hillyard will discuss with us The Trials and Tribulations of setting up your own on-line Academy

“Are you thinking of opening your own online school? I decided to do just that as I have sitting, languishing on my PC about 70 PPTs all with handouts and additional materials which would be really useful to new and serving teachers. So I set about taking a course with Nellie Deutsch where I learned to design, build and open my first 6 week online course in my Academy SHELTA. In this presentation I will discuss how exciting and how difficult it was for me to get my head around the technology and how my first two courses panned out leaving me thrilled and determined to open a new theme as soon as possible.”

The result was SHELTA here: https://www.facebook.com/susanshelta/

What happened to the stream? I think I made a rookie error. I had streamed successfully just a few days before and tried to do the same by launching the encoder and assuming YouTube would pick it up as before. But before I had “streamed now” where as here I had set an “event”. I think for this event I needed to type a different key in the encoder output from what I had used before. I believe that was the problem, and I’ll devote some time this weekend to troubleshooting it.
