Recording your Skype calls

Tayloring it

My unfortunate answer was “no” as I have admittedly been shortsighted in my use of them in the past and had never anticipated needing to ‘capture’ the session itself as a resource in its own right. (of course I captured sessions using the Blackboard Collaborate tool that I had access to whilst working at URENCO, but I no longer have access to those). Skype.

Interview with Terese Bird, #EdTechBook chapter author

Dont Waste Your Time

think I will bore everyone to death if I mention all the forms — lecture capture software and hardware, webinars and the paraphernalia to get them working, Skype, voting systems in lectures, Google drive and all the Google tools, don’t get me started on all the apps. In this seventh post I talk to Terese Bird, Learning Technologist and SCORE research fellow, University of Leicester.

2015 LMS Rakings for K-12, HE and Report Criteria

eLearning 24-7

How do you notify the administrator of the system – by phone, e-mail, Skype or multiple?  Do you offer the client an option of the best way or preferred way to contact them? Blackboard (K-12, HE). 8. I’m here.  In Berlin, that is, preparing for the Online Educa Berlin Conference, kicking off on Wednesday. Sessions galore. Countries showing off their latest e-learning (often under the words – distance learning , which should be booted as a term), and vendors showing their products, making their pitches and eating their food in their booth. Rev up those engines.

Rejected: On being disappointed, sorta

George Siemens

Over the last few months I engaged in various Skype interviews with HR and was finally short-listed as one of 3 visitors to Royal Roads for an on-campus presentation, meeting with faculty, and such. Early generations of innovative online learning consisted of learning management systems such as Moodle and Blackboard. I’ve never really actively “looked for work” In my late teens, my brother and I started a series of restaurants (we owned and operated seven in total). have never really bothered to validate that claim). It has been outstanding. still don’t.

my presentation on vodcasting

Ignatia Webs

We will get together through skype and talk about the integration of streaming and other video into Blackboard. Friday afternoon at Online Educa Berlin. I had just finished rearranging my slideshow on vodcasting so that it would include a theoretical framework (a quick one) as well. This session was moderated by Helle Meldgaard, UNI-C, Denmark. My part starts at 5.30

TCC09: Podcasting with Section 508

Experiencing eLearning

Can do conference calls to get multiple people together–Skype or whatever. I’ve done this for SME interviews for our team blog–worked pretty well. They have Blackboard–just link to everything within there. Camtasia lets you do quizzes and surveys-export SCORM to Blackboard. Podcast logo. Liveblogged notes from the TCC online conference. million (2007).

My Workflow with Synergy

Experiencing eLearning

Setting up courses in Blackboard. More people from work are on Skype. I use Skype almost exclusively on my laptop-see the note about being too lazy to plug in the headphones on my tower above.). This is a follow-up to my post on the features of Synergy. My last post covered how Synergy works. This post focuses on how I work with Synergy, both when I’m in live online events and during my daily work. Liveblogging & Team Meetings. It’s much easier to use two monitors like this than to alt+tab back and forth on one computer. Yes, I am that lazy. Daily Workflow.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

The Three Dubya's - Wimba, Webex and WiZiQ


Can be integrated to Blackboard VLE, but was not for this trial. Wimba: Wimba are a company that look to agree institutional wide solutions which would involve integration with Blackboard VLE. The Wimba trial was a stans alone classroom outside of Blackboard. Coming towards the end of a phase of Live Online Learning learning using Wimba Live Classroom. Good for free though.

One-way conferencing in a two-way world

Jay Cross

It wouldn’t be hard for WebEx, Adobe, Centra, Elluminate Blackboard, or their peers to provide a default conferencing environment that mirrors best practices for interactive meetings instead of mimicking what went on in yesteryear’s boring one-way workshops and classrooms. Yesterday I gave a presentation to a couple of dozen people using Adobe Connect Pro. Why are we doing this?

Islam, Higher Education & The Virtual Campus!


Not much to scream who-ha about, but I did really enjoy listening to Dr. Stuart Lee (Director, Computing & Services, Oxford University) over the Skype session to us. Interestingly, Oxford University rejected Blackboard as they didn't understand or support the needs of Oxford University's need for a free roaming kind of learning environment (not necessarily course-based).Ouch!
