I'm Back

I'm back, finally. Things got extremely busy and I had to take a step back. Hopefully I can keep up with class 2.4 when it starts and finally complete the activities (or at least more than I have so far.) I have had some time to play with Audacity, but I still have a lot to learn. I haven't even started trying to record both ends of a phone call let alone moving on from there.

Balancing Things Out . . . ?

. . . An attempt to restore a kind of balance.


Every time I thought about my abortive attempt to record the Skype group conversation with Carla Arena, Erika Cruvinel, a­nd a number of students from Carla's online class "Listening Plus," I felt bad— mostly because I didn't want the students to feel that what they had heard was typical of
international communication via Skype—
and I felt worse because several of them said that they were excited to be able to talk with "a real American."

Hoping to turn a colossal lemon into some lemonade, I transcribed what I said in the original Skype recording and re-re­corded it.

If you click ­HERE, you'll be taken to a webpage with a written introduction, then a link to the actual re-recording.

2007-11-11: Skype Recording and Streaming--D. Oliver

.jpg graphic: unsuccessful Skype recording and streaming session   ­

Oy, vey ist mir . . . . 

This past week, Carla Arena,
Erika Cruvinel, and I had
a Skype conversation with
Carla's online students in
Brasília, Brazil. Carla set up
the streaming, and my job
was to record the session.
We did­ a test about 20 minutes
before the session began, and
everything seemed to be
working OK. I was able to
record everything, but when
I checked it later, the results were . . . not stellar.­
