11:51:34 JL: feel free to skype worldbridges

11:55:06 sharonbetts: Jeff is really garbled for me. Anyone else?
11:55:59 DougS: getting garble on stream too
11:56:47 sharonbetts: Ok, thanks for the update - standing by. Kathy sounds like about 80 and very very slow.

11:57:24 cevanoff: Sharon- I feel like I am 80
11:57:50 JenniferW: can I join the skype??
11:58:06 sharonbetts: Jeff, you are getting better, but the gals are still quite garbled.
11:58:12 JL: yes, skype 'worldbridges'
11:58:26 JL: skype conf sounds fine
11:59:07 sharonbetts: Very very yucky streamed. I am on a laptop with wireless connectivity and am not certain I can skype in.
12:00:12 sharonbetts: Nope - still garbled. Hi Niels, Paradox and Jen
12:00:25 JL: please skype in to 'worldbridges'
12:01:26 JenniferW: I am muted -- and turned off real player
12:03:59 Parag: Hello everyone...
12:04:19 dave: hey folks...
12:04:36 JL:
12:08:57 JenniferW: vyew is being very tempermental today
12:09:54 Anne_Fox: Trying to listen on channel 1 but the stream keeps interrupting
12:10:26 JenniferW: view is getting stuck after the flash download
12:11:25 Andrew: I in vyew
12:11:42 sharonbetts: I got in and logged in - then it hung.
12:11:56 Andrew: It's very stuttery
12:12:31 Andrew: There's not much happening there anyway!
12:15:16 Madeline_Here: I have Flash 9,0,20,0 installed but do not see the desktop
12:17:45 Anne_Fox: Am suffering from constant rebuffering on the audio channel even though I'm on broadband
12:18:02 Sus: Anne, join the Skype call instead
12:18:09 sharonbetts: I am having the exact same problem - buffering and occassional static.
12:18:10 Anne_Fox: Am in Vyew OK
12:18:14 Sus: call jeff on worldbridges
12:18:16 marilynj8: My audio stream keeps stopping and rebuffering. I haven't gotten much of it.
12:19:35 Anne_Fox: Worldbridges on Skype does not answer
12:20:12 sharonbetts: This is a big class
12:22:35 elderbob: Hello all.
12:23:32 JL:
12:23:53 marilynj8: I am not getting most of this, though I have a broadband connection. I can leave.
12:24:32 marilynj8: Can I get this audio later?
12:25:14 Cathy_Evanoff: Good- cause that was way over my head
12:27:18 sharonbetts: Cathy, did you ever live in Ohio?
12:27:39 Cathy_Evanoff: NO- but I have an Aunt Cathy Evanoff in Ohio
12:27:53 Cathy_Evanoff: My husban's aunt actually
12:28:45 sharonbetts: I once had a Superintendent, John Evanoff in Ohio. Is Anne in the chat room?
12:29:07 Cathy_Evanoff: Don't think we are related
12:32:15 Cathy_Evanoff: I need drupal help :(
12:33:03 marilynj8: I am just listening on webcast, which is still dropping out. . I have just downloaded skype. Will try to join on skype. Maybe it's also a matter of permissions.
12:35:21 sharonbetts: Keep moving away from the page and losing the chat room - I need to get a new window.
12:37:05 Andrew: It looks like there may be a problem with the chat. I had it open in a separate floating windowing and it disappeared.
12:37:46 DougS: having trouble with audio in Skypecast and stream, will keep trying
12:38:23 Parag: Yes, the audio in the stream keeps breaking of. I am on channel 2... is it the same with channel 1 also?
12:38:35 DougS: have channel 1 back now
12:38:47 DougS: sounding good on channel 1
12:39:06 Parag: channel 2 is on again... oops said it too soon
12:39:06 DougS: just lost it again, channel 1
12:39:31 Parag: looks like both the channels step together
12:40:35 marilynj8: I am login out. I hope to hear the broadcast later on my office computer. The buffer on my home computer is not up to the task. Thanks.
12:41:39 DougS: still having trouble on Channel 1
12:42:02 JL: hmmm
12:43:03 DougS: same behaviour on Channel 2 for me
12:43:22 DougS: stop and restart player gives the same clip (~10 sec) and then no stream
12:45:08 DougS: Channel 2 now working for me
12:45:11 JL: try stream again
12:45:47 DougS: ok on Channel 1 as well
12:46:06 JL:
12:46:55 Cathy_Evanoff: The screencast are wonderful!
12:47:13 Andrew: Yes. I found them useful too
12:47:18 sharonbetts: Yes, I used the Audacity one and will watch many more.
12:48:12 JL:
12:50:06 JL: Wysiwyg editing
12:53:28 dave: is it just me that's hearing the choppiness?
12:53:54 Cathy_Evanoff: My sound is good
12:54:04 dave: thanks... must be my connection
12:54:14 JL: don't think so
12:54:15 JL: think it'
12:54:22 JL: s my connection
12:54:28 JL: skype is sucking it up
12:54:39 dave: it does do that
12:54:41 JL: try joining skypecast
12:54:47 dave: that's where i am
12:54:55 dave: was
12:54:59 dave: am
12:55:50 JL: try channel 2
12:56:00 Paradox66: What one could use is Cmaptools...making an conceptmap where we could work together
12:56:01 Paradox66:
12:56:46 Paradox66: But then it is probably be better using assignments to control the learning
12:57:55 sharonbetts: I tend to need a roadmap.
12:58:40 JenniferW: instead of writely -- could we just not make an additional page within drupal
13:00:17 Andrew: A mind map sound like an interesting approach
13:00:42 Andrew: or a wiki?
13:01:07 Paradox66: Cmap is like a wiki mindmap
13:13:26 Parag: We don't need no USB microphones :-)
13:13:34 Parag: HeHe
13:15:13 Andrew:
13:19:38 nielsd: OK thanks for today - meal is waiting!

Show Announcement Newsletter
If you would like to be an intern, you must post a comment on this forum thread:
If you don't post there, we won't know that you want to be an intern and will not be able to give you the appropriate posting permissions.  Here is a list of everyone that has posted there so far.
If you don't want to be an intern yet, you are still welcome to be part of the community and make use of the resources on the website, but only interns will be given access to the stream.
For those who signed up to be members of 1.1 and 1.2, but faded away, consider this a final chance to be part of 1.x.

The purpose of Sunday's meeting is to answer questions incoming interns might have, take the first steps toward producing live, interactive webcasts, and develop a learning plan for the Class of 1.3 .
The first assignment for interns is to record and post a short introduction.
For information on how to record and post one, please watch this screencast:
Please disregard the part that says a desktop USB desktop mic is required in order to webcast.  We have since learned that this is not always true.
Please post your introductions by Oct. 28.  Only those who post introductions will be considered 'official' members of The Class of 1.3 .
Introductions can be recorded in any language.  Personally, I'm looking forward to practicing my Danish :)

If you have questions or problems posting your introduction, please post them in the forums.

Just a reminder to all - this is a collaborative learning community, which mean we are all responsible for helping ourselves and each other learn.  Last time, I named myself the 'Class Coordinator for 1.2'.  I have since fired myself.  This time around, I hope 1.3'ers themselves will develop a learning plan and assign themselves class management roles, and that past interns will step forward to stream meetings on specific webcasting related topics as requested.

Speaking of which - a late breaking show announcement!  Brad Hicks will be webcasting a help session for Mac users Sunday, Oct. 22 at 1pmGMT (global times)

Webcasting issues can vary significantly depending on which operating system you use, so these sessions that focus on Mac Only issues can be quite helpful for Mac users.

Thanks again to everyone for your interest and participation in the Academy.
I look forward to virtually meeting newcomers and connecting again with Academy 'oldtimers'.

Fiberoptically Yours,
Jeff Lebow
Worldbridges Founder, Webcastaholic, Former Academy Class Coordinator

 jehzon  Is there a drupal+flickr module?
 arvind grover  we just used used flickr's badge or html code: for example
 jehzon  Is there a chat log of this NMC/dave?
 paradox66  this is where i found the explaination about VAC and amateur radio...
 paradox66  problem is that their database seems to being down atm
 paradox66  first result is a good explanation but it isnt working atm
 arvind grover  does skype on the mac have less settings than skype on the PC?
 jehzon  Are you missing any functionality arvind?
 arvind grover  it seems like there is a missing piece on the audio setting - the "let skype control my audio settings"
 jehzon  time-zoned based!
 jehzon  Eastern Standard Tribe, represent!
 jehzon  arvind, yeah. I double check the audio settings in Skype and my System Preference
 arvind grover  screenshot documents are very tough to produce
 jehzon  Agreed, plus it gives folks the chance to use more new technology to talk about more new technology
 jehzon  Used SnapZ on Mac, Camtasia not available
 dave  jehzon... just caught the message... the chat record is behind a sign in
 arvind grover  did you guys upgrade the chatroom software? looks different on my screen
 dave  tardy!
 dave  absent!
 dave  we need to enforce conformity
 dave  put her in the corner!
 arvind grover  wait, maybe she has a note from home
 dave  - 5 points!
 dave  i don't accept those!
 arvind grover  but my family always goes out of town this weekend, every year!
 Doug  here's a diagram I just made with Gliffy
 arvind grover  take a look at this screenshot. it is the free kristal audio software. i haven't tried it yet, but it appears to have a built in digital-mixer:
 arvind grover  hold on, can't paste
 Doug  use Float and Dock
 arvind grover  http://www.tinyurl/yfs7hc
 arvind grover  float and dock still doesn't let me paste, strange
 jehzon  soundbooth, anyone?
 jehzon  For post-production
 arvind grover  uh oh, here comes adobe into the mix
 jehzon  arvind...I am able to copy+paste on the Mac, but it seems to stop working if I switch to other applications
 jehzon  When I come back, can't copy+paste anymore
 arvind grover  weird
 arvind grover  that new adobe audio editor is available for intel mac's and pc's
 arvind grover  could be promising though
 jehzon  Whoa, I can get multiple undos in Second Life now.
 arvind grover  excellent!
 arvind grover  my webhost is deplying this thing called flashback which saves a copy of every file you ever make and all older versions
 arvind grover  helps with the accidental deletes
 arvind grover  it worked! great idea
 dave  yay jeff
 arvind grover  Xinha
 arvind grover  rocks
 arvind grover  on mac, firefox, can't paste into the textbox for some reason
 paradox66  sorry
 jehzon  Naw, dave, you are still weird here too

 SusNy  Any chance to join a Skype channel too?
 SusNy  sorry for being late
 arvind grover  interesting, if i press copy in the chat window, i can paste, but can't paste out of external apps. i think that was what you were saying jehzon was saying
 jehzon  Everyone using Mac also using Firefox?
 dave  hey lawrie
 dave  that skypecast link is to the live audio
 lawrie  Hi Dave
 jehzon  Hey, another new feature of this chat...used to be the whole line of someone's chat that mentioned my name had its color changed. Now it's just my name, not the whole line
 JL  is that true jehzon
 JL  JL, what do you think?
 JL  I think so
 jehzon  So if I type Dave, only dave's name should change color not this whole sentance
 jehzon  In his chat screen
 jehzon  Not mine
 dave  dave dave dave
 Paul E  Hello Everyone
 dave  yo paul
 paradox66  a way to collect info and links
 dave  better than
 Paul E  I think the notebook would be good for cliping text out of webpages, but I am not sure about the links
 SusNy  I cannot hear you but apparently I am in the Skype room with you
 SusNy  has one of those annoying fallouts of one mili second
 paradox66  sus disconnect and connect again

 JL  [email protected] / webcast
 Cathy e  hello guys
 DS  Hi Cathy
 DS  and all
 DS  think JL may have crashed--lost the skype call
 JL  please skype 'worldbridges' directly
 NielsD  OK
 Cathy e  Just to let you know I have watched the screen cast "Recording both ends of a telephony call in windows" at least 100 times :)
 JL  got a new one for you -
 NielsD  are we using the skypecast - or go worldbrigdes direktly?
 AnneF  HI there
 JL  Hi Kathy - skype 'worldbridges' directly
 paradox66  hello all
 JehZon  Not me. Still trouble with ecamm recorder.
 DS  sorry, can't record here either, have to run away in a little while myself
 sendkathy  I can't hear anything give me a minute.
 Madeline Brownstone  Hi, sorry I'm late.
 DS  Hi Madeline
 Cathy e  I have the same sound card- but i don't have stereo mix as an option
 Madeline Brownstone  I just checked for a skypecast, are we on?
 Madeline Brownstone  I can't find us.
 AnneF  I think they are in a kype conference
 DS  skype worldbridges directly to join
 AnneF  the skypecast wasn't working very well
 JL  indeed
 DS  I'll listen on the stream, I have to leave soon
 JL  skype 'worldbridges' to join in
 Madeline Brownstone  just found it, thanks....started at 50 minutes ago? YIKES
 JL  do not join skypkecast
 JL  skype worldbridges
 AnneF  no, that confused me too. I think they open it early
 Madeline Brownstone  okay
 arvind grover  i am in the skypecast, but i dont see anyone there
 arvind grover  oh
 DS  arvind skype worldbridges directly to join
 DS  the skypecast wasn't cooperating
 arvind grover  got it
 DS  have to run all - look forward to catching up on audio -- cya soon
 arvind grover the conference website - audio available there
 sharonbetts  Hello everyone - glad to have caught you at least for awhile today.
 Madeline Brownstone  been getting this error when exporting to mp3 on audacity on Mac
 Madeline Brownstone  ooop
 sharonbetts  how many of you have actually got a two way Skype to work?
 sharonbetts  I keep losing the sound - anyone else? I will change channels.
 JL  sharon, would you like to join skype
 paradox66  Me and niels got it to work
 Cathy e  Not me :(
 Cathy e  I can faintly hear the skype lady
 Cathy e  When I go to Mixer Device I only have line in, rear mic, microphone
 sendkathy  So, bottom line, are we able to get in a skypecast or simply listen to the stream on channel 1?
 arvind grover  no skypecast, can you skype "worldbridges" directly or listen to the stream
 arvind grover  jeff is restarting the skype
 arvind grover  i mean stream
 arvind grover  restarting the stream
 sendkathy  I hope this works because my stream keeps buffering and going mute.
 sharonbetts  I am having exactly the same problem - it buffers and dies
 Madeline Brownstone  Two-way skypecall has still not come front and center on my to-do list. I think I'm going to find the time next week to get going full stream with the webdcast academy assignments and experimentations.
 JL  hitting bandwidth limits
 JL  will restart channel 2 shortly
 sharonbetts  aha - thanks Madeline, I don't feel so far behind then.
 arvind grover  the analog analogy is always helpful - if it applies
 sharonbetts  I forgot my headphone at work and can't skype in today either - where or where did my organizational skills go?
 JL  channel 2 should be on now
 sharonbetts  Channel 2 is ok -- good
 sharonbetts  darn - it cut out again. Is channel 1 running?
 cheryloakes  channel 2
 cheryloakes  hi sharon
 sharonbetts  and I lost the chatroom when I accidentally tried to re-stream from the same tab. I think this week is lost - hi Cheryl
 arvind grover  classic conversation with teachers - they don't want to know how the projector works, juts work!
 cheryloakes  Hi Arvind, I still think that way, just work, especially when teaching, there isn't time to troubleshoot with 20 faces looking at you. :-)
 arvind grover  i definitely dont want to troubleshoot in class, but i was thinking more during training of teachers. but i know exactly what you mean
 arvind grover  :)
 cheryloakes  cathy are you a mac?skype
 sharonbetts  ;)
 AnneF  no stream, no skype only web huddle and chat so I think I'll go and listen to the recording later.
 Cathy e  I am windows
 AnneF  Bye all
 JL  bye anne
 sharonbetts  me to - where is web huddle info?
 Cathy e
 cheryloakes  I use nicecast on my mac
 sharonbetts  thanks - the name of the "huddle"?
 paradox66  skype:?chat&id=%23arvindgrover%2F%24310f611772562cdc
 cheryloakes  it is on the front page of webcast academy [email protected] pw webcast
 sharonbetts  can anyone give me the URL for the site with music clips that Jeff mentioned previously
 paradox66  my swedish screencast about making kanon singen
 Madeline Brownstone  back again, keep loosing my window too
 cheryloakes  I will start putting tags for mac entries.
 Madeline Brownstone  Ah, ha, copy paste works in Firefox. This is the errror I get using Mac OSX 10.4.8 and Audacity 1.2.5Assertion (gfc->mf_size <= MFSIZE) failed in "lame.c" on line 1501
 JehZon  yes
 JehZon  can't do it either
 Cathy e  me either
 JehZon  Sometimes it works, most time it does not
 Cathy e  Works the first time but not after the first time
 arvind grover  that's rightg. i think it works before you takea away focus from the window the first time. once you come back, it doesn't work - oh well, copy paste, who needs it?
 Madeline Brownstone  try copy/paste using Apple+C and apple+v that works for me on Mac running firefox
 sendkathy  I am just wondering how get the people you'd like to participate ready to go.
 arvind grover  thanks madeline, doesn't work for me after the first time i look away from the window
 sharonbetts  Good question Kathy. I hope to figure out how and then I need to find who. I also can't copy / paste in windows.
 Madeline Brownstone  ha, Arvind:o ...that's what happend to me when I tried to copy something IN the window. It works when I copy FROM another source and paste into the chat
 arvind grover  no luck for me
 Cathy e  Sharon- I plan to use the webcast with teachers after hours- like a help desk meeting
 sharonbetts  Oh - yes that is very much like what I want to do. I meant getting a two way skype call recorded.
 sendkathy  I'm just concerned that if we have these issues and are committed to trying to solve them, how will rather low-tech people be encouraged to stick it out?
 Cathy e  I have not had luck with that yet
 Madeline Brownstone  Arvin: I'm using Firefox version on MAC iBook G4 10.4.8
 Cathy e  But low tech people won't have to record in the beginning
 Cathy e  Just listen and talk
 arvind grover  i am using FF 2
 sharonbetts  Kathy - right. I think that skyping to staff is easy. It is the recording stuff that has me bamboozled.
 sharonbetts  I am also using FF 2 (windows) and can't copy - paste.
 Cathy e  NO- the copy paste issue is a biggie
 sendkathy  So Sharon, you are already skyping with your staff?
 sendkathy  How do you set up a time and how do you get them interested?
 sharonbetts  I can copy / paste in Webhuddle -
 Cathy e  What about the old one?
 NielsD  Here is my webrecordings in OPAL
 sharonbetts  I only skype with a few that are quite teckie - and it is usually around troubleshooting our new ePortfolio software and posting podcasts and videos there. I just tell them I will be online in the evening at a certain time. We also use the chat room in our email client (First Class)
 NielsD  her it is
 cheryloakes from Cheryl on her Macbook 10.4.8, using FLOCK
 NielsD  this last on was to the american OPAL-prosject
 cheryloakes  madeline, try using flock as your browser, it works for copying urls.
 sendkathy  Has anyone ever webcast to or from an ed tech conference?
 sharonbetts  I just uninstalled Flock when I upgraded to FF 2 - ugh
 sendkathy  I like being part of a class so I feel I can get to know a smaller group.
 Cathy e  No-Kathy, but I have been thinking about it..I will be going to NCETC in a couble of weeks.
 NielsD this is my webroom - feel free to go in an look
 cheryloakes  Women of Web 2.0 will be webcasting next Tue. from a conference in GA , then on 11/28 from NH, Christa McAulliffe.
 sharonbetts  I agree - I am such a dolt about these things and like the class structure
 sendkathy  I'm going to GaETC this week.
 sharonbetts  wow - are you going to GA, cheryl? any thoughts about TCEA?
 Cathy e  Kathy- you can go first :)
 sendkathy  Wow, I'm taking CSS with Patrick Crispin on Tuesday.
 cheryloakes  lucky you, check out Vicki Davis, Jen, Sharon will be webcasting at 9 PM, I am holding the fort at home here in Maine
 Cathy e  I'll listen if you talk
 sharonbetts  I will try to check-in on Tuesday this week
 cheryloakes  Hope you can Sharon.
 arvind grover  here is one commericial shoutcast provider i found:
 Madeline-in-Flock  cannot copy/paste a URL in Flock
 arvind grover  i can't figure out what the $2.15 for a 128k stream gets you
 sharonbetts  sorry, but it makes me feel better about uninstalling it. ha (Flock that is)
 sharonbetts  Jeff there is an echo now.
 Cathy e  I don't know I would ever do all the things needed to run a webcast and be in Second Life?
 sharonbetts  I registered for Second Life and have spent about 15 minutes there - just no time.
 cheryloakes  sorry Madeline, maybe since i am on a Macbook, not G4.
 Madeline Brownstone  mayBE
 sharonbetts  Yea webheads - I plan on trying to join then this winter.
 arvind grover  so strange, wasn't doing anything and the chatroom just logged me out. wasn't even near the keyboard
 arvind grover  and not on wireless
 cheryloakes  Cathye, I dont' think my computer could take all the punishment of resource use with 2nd life and webcast, wkype
 sendkathy  If I ever go the hang of it I would like to run a group.
 sendkathy  My computer can't take 2nd life either!
 Cathy e  cherly, forget the computer, my brain can't handle it
 sharonbetts  Cathy - I am with you! I actually try to have a first life and that's hard.
 sendkathy  So true!
 sendkathy  Although the I just listed to one of the Intercultural webcast on the topic of reinventing yourself and it seems 2nd life is just the ticket.
 arvind grover  you're right jeff, these external hosts are expensive!
 arvind grover  they are like $2/listener for 128k
 sendkathy  What about raising funds?
 Eiseldora  I am a fan of Second Life, because it has many freedoms
 arvind grover  so we need a shoutcast server training session - a lot of schools (at least in the U.S.) have high-speed connections. we could put up some servers i think
 Madeline Brownstone  my chat screen has a mind of it's own. It keeps wanting to return to the Welcome at the top. Kind of spooky
 arvind grover  a paypal button on webcastacademy. or let people pay tuition if they are interested. voluntary
 Madeline Brownstone  Arvind: what do I want to know about my upstream bandwidth?
 Madeline Brownstone  My school wants to stream....eventually--once I learn. :-)
 arvind grover  meadline, for running your own shoutcast server?
 sendkathy  Do we have to reserve the sandbox?
 sharonbetts  I also was wondering about streaming in the sandbox - although I have a long way to go before I am ready.
 arvind grover  i am looking at: (i hope i typed that correctly)
 Madeline Brownstone  I have to hang on to the scroll bar to keep the chat in place....
 sharonbetts  I am picturing that - :D
 Madeline Brownstone  :p
 Madeline Brownstone  makes typing difficult ;)
 sharonbetts  I see it is 1:15 and I am going to need to sign-off. Hopefully, I will be able to make some progress this week. See you folks.
 Madeline Brownstone  I also hpe to get that 2-way skype done this week...finally
 Madeline Brownstone  I will try the shoutcast server too....
 Madeline Brownstone  with my students
 sharonbetts  ambitious - good luck Madeline.
 Madeline Brownstone  Well, I have a gaggle of little girls who want to webcast....8th graders
 Madeline Brownstone  they are awesome. Been in Lee Baber's spacecast every friday
 Madeline Brownstone  now they want to host their own
 arvind grover  turn dreams into reality :)
 arvind grover  if we get enough interns in a geographic area, we should have meetups (in person)
 arvind grover  to do some cross-training
 sendkathy  What are the legal implications of recording people?
 Madeline Brownstone  How many in the NYC Metro area?
 Madeline Brownstone  legal for school kids?
 arvind grover  {arvind raises hand}
 sendkathy  Yes and anyone else
 sendkathy  Is it just a simple media release for signed by parents?
 Madeline Brownstone  our children have a signed release from their parents that we can put their work on the Internet....kind of open and vague...
 arvind grover  in the U.S. you can record people if they know that they are being recorded
 arvind grover  (adults)
 Madeline Brownstone  ...we say that we will not reveal last names and other identifying information
 arvind grover  right on, guidelines for safety are key
 sendkathy  What's the best way to invite people from around the country to join a skypecast or to be primary speakers?
 Madeline Brownstone  network with friends...
 arvind grover  remember that when you skypecast, anyone who finds it on the website can join i
 Cathy e  I'm glad we have a gifted student in our class
 arvind grover  when yo skype conf, you control who enters
 Madeline Brownstone  Kathy, you have school children? what grade?
 sendkathy  I know but these are all techies.
 Madeline Brownstone  I'm in middle school and we have the personallearningspace elgg
 sendkathy  I have a sophomore and a senior and teach kindergarten
 Cathy e  Where do we go tonight
 arvind grover  i am really trying to figure out how to use KRISTAL audio software on my PC because it has a mixer to control input volumes
 Madeline Brownstone  for HS try http://youthvoices.??? I'll check it out. Check out teachers teaching teachers. Paul Allison and Susan E are active in that
 sendkathy  I have a Promethean board and may want to host a users forum in a webcast.
 arvind grover  cool!
 sendkathy  Thanks Jeff and all!

 dave    i'm here
 dave    yo yo
 Brad Hicks    Hi guys is there a skypecast set up?
 Brad Hicks    Mr Australia - lol
 Brad Hicks    I have some questions from you guys
 Brad Hicks    can you bring me in?
 Brad Hicks    for you guys*
 JasonR    Moooola!
 JL    Hey J
 Brad Hicks    Hey Jason
 JasonR    Greetings
 dave    sarah...
 Sarah    Hello
 dave    darth
 dave    cathy
 Sarah    It's me
 dave    it is you!
 Sarah    Yes, it is.
 Sarah    that's why I'm part of Pweb. Out of love.
 dARTh Gelwicks    Howdy, campers.
 Sarah    that's one of the biggest problems I have being part of the Worldbridges community.
 dave    camping?
 Sarah    pacing myself
 Sarah    not getting burnt out
 dave    yeah... tell me about it... :)
 Sarah    and trying to supress the guilt when I miss personal deadlines
 dARTh Gelwicks    It's easy to drown in the deep end.
 dave    and then letting them drag on after you miss them
 Sarah    and that, too
 dave    monkey!
 dARTh Gelwicks    Are you having primate problems?
 dave    kind of.
 Sarah    Oh! I'm not a problem!
 Sarah    or, haven't been recently.
 JasonR    I blow off my deadlines and go into Second Life instead
 dARTh Gelwicks    Why not treat it like a board of directors with yearly nominations and appointments?
 dave    we've discussed it
 JL    we need to policy it
 JL    governace
 JL    ance
 Sarah    obviously there are backups.
 dave    dominance
 JasonR    BTW, ecamm supposedly fixed my recording problems with a new update.
 Brad Hicks    Yeah i saw that Jason
 JasonR    I had an offending colon (:) in my contact list
 dARTh Gelwicks    I sat on a municipal board for three years before I bugged out. The only concern would be losing the character of the group under the weight of bureacracy.
 dARTh Gelwicks    (avoiding colon jokes now.)
 dARTh Gelwicks    Can't help it...I know lots of offending colons.
 JasonR    But it's such low hanging fruit
 dARTh Gelwicks    I was behind one in traffic this morning.
 dARTh Gelwicks    So if they only annoy you are they a semicolon?
 JasonR    Har :)
 cheryloakes    Hi
 cathy e    Hi Cheryl
 dARTh Gelwicks    Hi Cheryl
 cheryloakes    Hi Cathy
 cheryloakes    hi darth and Jason
 JasonR    greetings
 Brad Hicks    Hi Cheryl
 cathy e    an AUP
 cheryloakes    Hey, Brad, nice to see you online.
 Brad Hicks    Yeah decided to re-neg on a day of substitute teaching today
 Brad Hicks    have to get my uni assignment done
 Brad Hicks    writing a critical analysis of WorldBridges as a PLC - so really appreciate the guys addressing these questioins
 Brad Hicks    Professional learning Community*
 cheryloakes    really good idea, share your analysis.
 Brad Hicks    will do
 dave    must go and feed baby...
 dave    nice talking nice folks
 Brad Hicks    thanks dave, for your time
 dave    MONKEY!
 Doug    cya dave
 cheryloakes    bejois for Oscar
 Sarah    bye dave!
 Doug    yes all the best to Bon' and the wee man
 dave    many thanks
 cheryloakes    hey doug, and sharon, i missed seeing you and JL
 Doug    hi Cheryl, sorry I missed it
 cheryloakes    the podcast of WW2 is up at webcast academy.
 Doug    well done, I look forward to listening
 dave    monkey are you on brad's back?
 dave    bye again all...
 cheryloakes    Brad, it was very good to hear .
 dave    really must go... too bad. this is really cool...
 JL    Please join in the fun
 cheryloakes    I agree BRAD, the academy has been incredible. I never thought I would be webcasting. I always like to join a conversation, but this was just not in my vocabulary until I started in the class.
 cheryloakes    I am so jealous of you being on the slopes!
 cheryloakes    We are water skiing at my mountain.
 Doug    I'll be "radiocasting" from a trailer
 cheryloakes    Sweet.
 Doug    didn't even get on the boards last yr
 cheryloakes    I am impressed.
 Doug    hope to get some runs this yr
 cheryloakes    Women of Web 2.0 new webcast.
 cheryloakes    My virtual learning community is more active than my school community most days.
 Brad Hicks    yup, 12 am GMT is always good for me
 cheryloakes    My virtual community is the place where I am challenged to move onto new learnings, I can be assured that I will learn something new. At school, I get excited when I can share something I've done in my virtual life.
 Brad Hicks    break out the coffee :-)
 Brad Hicks    here here
 JasonR    Weekends work for me
 cheryloakes    The webheads meet at 12PM GMT, so a 12AM sounds good.
 JasonR    Or late weekdays, after 6pm EST
 cheryloakes    I ditto that Doug.
 Brad Hicks    guinea pig Doug!
 cathy e    I wanna do it... I wanna do it. I will not give up!
 Brad Hicks    good idea - wiki
 cheryloakes    That is really how I learned best when online with Jeff and Brad one night and just doing it!
 cheryloakes    wait, that sounds like planning
 Brad Hicks    I was amazed that Jeff succumbed to a Moodle being established ;-)
 Doug    it's because of Sloodle == thin edge of Moodle wedge ;)
 cheryloakes    hey alex
 Alex Ragone    Hi Cheryl.
 Alex Ragone    Sorry about that.
 Alex Ragone    Going to stay muted for now...
 cathy e    I have a feeling I will still be a student in the class of 1.9
 cheryloakes    No way Cathy, you are way into Web 2.0!!!
 Brad Hicks    Yep, if i can find a good time to schedule sessions, I definitely want to help in my time zone
 Brad Hicks    with the academy
 JasonR    Heh, you should see the Millionsofus people trying to organize a live event rigt now in SL. I'd copy the URL, but chat is not letting me :(
 JasonR    And the sim crashes
 Brad Hicks    how many channels can be supported? I though this nmay be a way to raise funding - people renting channels
 Brad Hicks    even if just for a token amount
 Brad Hicks    do we consider becoming somehow registered as a recognised training organisation? Not sure how that works in US/Canada
 Brad Hicks    would this give more weight to certification? Do we care?
 cheryloakes    Oh, yes very different!!!
 cheryloakes    I wouldn't have joined webcast academy unless I'd been through the webheads class and participated in skype calls.
 Doug    great point Cheryl
 Doug    Skype almost needs to be its own course
 Alex Ragone    jeff's never going to let us graduate anyway!
 Doug    especially when it comes to conferences and 'casts
 Doug    lol
 cheryloakes    Yes, skype, skypecast and probably gizmo
 Doug    Google talk?
 JL    that laugh was for you Alex
 cheryloakes    oh sure more things to learn.
 Alex Ragone    brb
 Brad Hicks    again though, is there a body through which the Academy becomes recogined as a registered traine? if we want to add some "official education system" certification/acknowledgement of the standards that the Academty training imparts
 Brad Hicks    trainer*
 Brad Hicks    brb
 Brad Hicks    back
 JasonR    Accreditation. Is there any org that offers accreditation for this kind of activity?
 JasonR    Officially
 JasonR    Nationally
 JasonR    Internationally
 cheryloakes    Kind of like the k12 online conference that has 3 credit class offering through PLymouth State in NH and Shangai University. It will help me with recertification.
 JasonR    The International Society of Webcasters
 cheryloakes    Yeah ISW
 Brad Hicks    yep that's what i mean , and maybe we aren't too worried about it at this stage?
 cathy e    if there is a certificate teachers could use the time toward CEUs
 JasonR    How do the Ham operators do it?
 cheryloakes    right Cathy. right now I write this in my professional development plan
 cathy e    good idea- I did not, but I should have
 cheryloakes    Just answering the questions doesn't demonstrate proficency.
 JasonR    Any parallels here:
 cathy e    proficency would depend on the prior approval that is set
 cheryloakes    proficency at many levels, the reading, blogging, the recording, the webcast, the final podcast
 cathy e    yes cheryl, it is not just the physical webcasting
 Brad Hicks    then have to start ppirate webcast stations!
 cheryloakes    Just do it! with goggles.
 Steve    Isn't it the content that should be judged? I wonder how far beyond classroom discussion this lies
 Brad Hicks    yeah I have wondered whether there should be a little more reflective blogging required, most poeople do this anyway - depends on how formal/stringent you want requirements to be - the danger is making certification too onerous of course
 cheryloakes    I should add more mac stuff in the blog or book of webcasting.
 Brad Hicks    I still have to make a lot more contribution to book of webcatsing
 Brad Hicks    ...when I'm on holiday in a few weeks
 cheryloakes    we shoudl skype while working on it, in Mac bridges, that would be a good topic! I'd do it, Alice would join
 cheryloakes    easy for you to say JL
 cathy e    The lessons are simple- but when you hit a wall...what do you do?
 Brad Hicks    well as people build their knowledge, no reason why we can't have some very detailed/varied setup help as people contribute it
 cheryloakes    I would reach out to a classmate and have a skype conversation.
 Brad Hicks    how do we display those though - in a Person's online profile?
 Brad Hicks    on their web pages?
 cathy e    yea baby!
 JL    yep
 cheryloakes    sounds good to me.
 Brad Hicks    I still feel certifications need to be given sooner after completion
 Brad Hicks    as more new people come into it, they will probably expect to receive their certification soon after completion
 cheryloakes    when webcasting it is very helpful to have a safety net of a proficient webcaster in the background.
 cathy e    Brad I will be your test student
 Brad Hicks    no problem- just have to work out a time that is doable!
 cheryloakes    I w ou ld go through it as a webcast 1.2 person, just to see all I"ve done.
 cheryloakes    am I almost ready to graduate??
 JL    you're proficient
 cheryloakes    I really think I want to go through the book of webcast and give feedback that would be helpful.
 cheryloakes    yahoo!
 Brad Hicks    great idea Jeff
 cheryloakes    oh, that is a good idea, a web portfolio
 cheryloakes    with badges
 Brad Hicks    could put it out to schools

 JasonR    nods
 cheryloakes    webheads do graphics and surveys and votes all the time
 cheryloakes    Doug I am really jealous!!
 cheryloakes    Oh, next Thurs evening? after the turkey

 cathy e    I have a feather for EdTechTalk's cap. On the cover of our high school news paper that was just released- there is an article about DOPA- the article was there because the mother of the high school student is a teacher in my elementary building. I talked about DOPA during staff dev after I learned about it from you guys and the mom went home and told her 10th grade daugher.
 Doug    that's a great story Cathy, thanks
 Doug    take care all
