Weeks # 1-2

Well, there is a time for everything. I'm starting to blog and still can't believe it! I never thought I would put up my very own thoughts in cyber space, but since this is the assignement...

Our end-of semester A has finally arrived so I have more time to fiddle with the audio specs' etc.. and I enjoyed very much learning to use Audacity and editing a file with a mix of background music and introducing myself!

Just getting started with webcasting

This will be a short blog post as I have completed Week 1 assignments and am now looking towards week 2!  Just as well, as the meeting is in 2 hours! 

No problems so far, however I have noticed a lot of activity on the group Skype chat and was wondering if I was really being left behind....maybe everyone is well into week 2 by now. Luckily I watched the screencast on how to manage a group Skype chat so I now know how to not have the chat window popping up during class all the time!

Week #1

I've done a lot of listening this week. Stayed up much later than I should have to listen to some webcasts. I've gotten something out of all of them but I find it hard to digest it all. I really appreciated the time with Lee and Derrall with the Mac interface on Monday, Jan 21st. They gave us a basic run down of the software, explaining the purposes and settings. It was very helpful. Thanks so much!

Jess McCulloch Introduction


I'm Jess, I teach Chinese in a small country school in Victoria, Australia. I'd love to create a webcast show with my students, and maybe Jo McLeay will have me on her show too! Looking forward to it.

Holy Moly, lots to learn and already playing catch up!!

I was traveling yesterday, had been in Kansas City to watch my daughter perform, so did not return home in time to participate live.  I am listening to the recording of the session.  Learning lots, but discovered I hate just listening and not participating.  So, hopefully life does not get in the way too often.  Ok, I know I am dreaming, but my intentions are good.
