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.
Today, Scott Lockman describes his understanding of what ds106 is, how the system works, how to become involved, and some of his experience over the past year of teaching a computer studies classbased on the ds106 model.
This Sunday, Scott was at Tapped In two hours before he was due to go on, giving us plenty of time to set up the Elluminate room, but one thing led to another and we ended up at a place called Cypris Chat in Second Life <http://cyprischat.org/> where students come together and talk freely on interestingly abstract concepts. Here’s a screen shot of the F.U.N.
This engaged us in a round of getting our VOIP working in SL where we could hear the chat, necessitating our shutting off sound in Elluminate, and causing us to get so resource-challenged that we both had to reboot and barely made it back to Elluminate in time to get re-started there in time for …
getting back on the topic of tonight’s presentation on ds106 …
From about 11:00 a.m. GMT, Vance tried to touch base in http://tappedin.org and show that to the audience but NOT!! TappedIn never works through HCT LAN at any campuses I have tried so far, so, sorry but Vance couldn’t make this one.
Coming from someone with demonstrated skills in navigating Second Life while employing impeccable camera technique and simulcasting the result in Adobe Connect, streamed and recorded for posterity, the above compliment from Heike Philp does me great honor; Vance 🙂
Update: Tuesday, April 3, 2012 – Vance Stevens gave a presentation entitled Learner-centered do-it-yourself LMS at the 6th eLearning in Action conference held at the Sharjah Higher Colleges of Technology, UAE
