B. Advanced User Modules

Converging The Basic Program 101 into WizIQ/ Moodle (for Synchronous and Asynchronous Training)

A. Introduction

The newly appointed administrator John Schmidt for the (free) Wikiversity Moodle Sandbox Server writes:

"Hopefully in the future we will all be able to instantly link into video chat discussion groups. Maybe some day Wikiversity will exist as an immersive virtual reality environment."

http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/User:JWSchmidt

As soon as John visits the Webcast Academy, he will discover that the Academy is doing this already. He has received an invitation. This may be a fruitful opportunity to collaborate and converge along with Wikiversity.

The future of virtual worlds and 3D Web applications is in being able to support standard 3D content rather than having to rely on proprietary content authoring tools. This is one of the key attributes of SceneCaster, a new 3D Web social media site launched at DEMO conference. SceneCaster supports almost all popular 3D formats, including 3D Studio Max, Sketchup, DWF, etc, and integrates with Google's 3D Warehouse. As a result, SceneCaster users can search for and import 3D content from the largest catalog of 3D objects on the Web and create their customized 3D scenes -- right in their browser. We've also recently announced a partnership with Turbo Squid and will be featuring their catalog of premium 3D content.

-- Guest microphone: A USB mic completely separate to the sound card displays no interference. Not even the USB mic built into a webcam achieves the quality of a completely separate USB mic. Logitech USB Desktop Mic (AK5370) is by far the best tested and verified microphone requirement. Please also check Skype Call Quality Issues in order to remedy frequent problem areas, such as: Call echo, background noise, one-way sound, robotic sound, words cut off, and delay. Sound spectrums may be increased or decreased in energy level by using your Equalizer EQ utility software as supplied along with your sound card in order to compensate for audio feedback. Sound volume may be controlled inside the Skype panel under Tools > Options > Audio settings.

- Guest headset: Using speakers is also a source for audio feedback in the microphone, thus making the use of a headset necessary.
