Heike Philp – Web conferences for Continuous Professional Development

Learning2gether Episode 145

View on screencast.com »

Heike Philp took us through the highlights of various online conferences she has organized, been a part of, and most importantly, recorded.

As Heike said: “Top level guest speakers, a global audience, a lively chat and a sharing of know-how can all be had from the comfort of your home. What inspired me to start the first web conference was however another reason because truly I love to travel to conference just as much as attending them. What motivated me to run  web conferences is the fact that there are so many parallel sessions at each conference! One can actually spend all of this time and money and attend the conference and still miss more than half of the program. Not so in the case of web conferences. During a web conference all of the sessions can be recorded. And they are being watched … “
Noting that the Virtual Round Table WebCon, the DaFWEBKON for teachers of German, and the SLanguages Annual Symposium attracted some 4,500 synchronous participants in total, but that the recordings have been watched over 23,000 times, Heike supports the proposition that these recordings may serve as the ‘Khanacademy for language teachers’.

MachinEVO is an EVO sessions workshop for video productions of language learning conversations in Second Life

MachinEVO is all about producing films of language learning conversations undertaken in Second Life. A film of Second Life (SL) is called a machinima and it is derived from a combination of machine and cinema. Essentially it means recording the screen of the application Second Life. A machininma uploaded onto a video sharing site may also be playing on a mobile app increasing the accessibility of these productions.

Location: The session took place in Second Life, at EduNation and English City
