Learning2gether Episode 375
On Sunday Nov 5 at the usual time of 1400 UTC Learning2gether streamed, or attempted to stream, the 2nd live event in EVO2018 Moderator Training. The event itself was in WizIQ, meant to be hosted by Nellie Deutsch, who, because Nellie was called away, was replaced at the last minute by Nives Torresi.
Here is Nellie’s announcement
- Link to enter (no sign up required), and also the location of the WizIQ recording
- Text transcripts
Here is Nellie’s YouTube version of the WizIQ session
Vance created this contingency, in case of problems
- We we will set up a live stream for you to watch and listen.
Find the LIVE stream here: https://www.youtube.com/user/vancestev/
- You can get universally accessible help and interact with us during the session in text chat at http://chatwing.com/vancestev
We might be able to troubleshoot for some of you and talk you in through communication in the stream and in the text chat.
The contingency fell flat because Vance forgot to add his mic to the stream
Apologies about the stream. There are many balls to juggle with encoding your stream. With Bb Collaborate, I am able to enter the room beforehand and test through using a live setup that I am getting both system sound and mic sound out the other end well before the event starts. With practice you learn that this is what you have to do, but testing reminds you, when you don’t get what you expect, that if it’s not working, oh yeah, I need my mic input at this end.
With WizIQ I could not get a live stream at the beginning. There is an option to test system sound, but when I clicked on that, the system took me to WizIQ, had me log on, and in the end, with time ticking away, I was not able to find any means of testing my system sound. If I could have got a sound check I would have seen that my mic was not working, but as it was I could only test that I could select the correct window to stream, and I played system sound as part of the test. So when the WizIQ started at the exact time it was scheduled to go live, there was no more time for testing, and it turned out I had not configured my mic sound for the stream. Too late at that point. Here’s what came out the other end, https://youtu.be/cxULW0SPPxE.
So unfortunately, people in the stream did not hear anything I said, and the recording is of what the stream sounded like. However, the WizIQ recording is fine, and I’ve since replaced the flawed YouTube stream recording with the one at the head of this blog post, the one here, https://youtu.be/M07I3bFK6BY
