GoTo Meeting, Centra, Wimba, and other Web Conferencing Solutions…Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Kapp Notes

PowerPoint is slowly starting to broaden its capabilities and will, I predict, soon infringe on some well known software applications in the field of e-learning such as…web conferencing tools (and others). This video is one of the first inroads PowerPoint is making into the Web Conferencing software and I don’t think they are going to stop here. industry

We have 2D Virtual Classrooms, Why 3D?

Kapp Notes

In a 3D world, the interaction with the students feels more intimate than with a 2-D distance learning application such as Centra, Horizon Wimba or Adobe Connect. Sitting around a conference table for class. Another question and this one is simple.why 3D? We've got plenty of great 2D platforms for communication, what does 3D add? Here is a short answer.

Elements of a Virtual World/Metaverse

Kapp Notes

The first software element that makes up a virtual world is a synchronous learning tool similar to WebEx or Adobe Connect or Saba’s Centra. Using a virtual world or metaverse for training is not as science-fiction as it sounds. metaverse or virtual world is simply the natural extension and convergence of several technologies currently used for online learning. This is similar to the Web 2.0

Discussion with Lucid Meetings

Kapp Notes

We decided that there had to be a better way and so we started Lucid Meetings. 3) How is Lucid Meetings different from other meeting software such as GoTo Meetings, Saba’s Centra or Adobe Connect? The other day I had a chance to learn about Lucid Meetings and to hear what they are doing in terms of creating interesting meeting spaces. That’s a great question. So give it a try!

Dispelling the LMS Myth

eLearning 24-7

Web conferencing or chat rooms – I know it might come as a shock but WebEx was alive and in full mode in 2000 and so was Centra – remember them? Last week I came across an interesting obit: A Mr. L.M. System had passed away. He was recognized throughout the e-learning and learning communities. Apparently he was loved by millions and hated by thousands. He tended to wear different colors and apparently wore logos – I surmise they were on t-shirts. He was online quite a bit and provided a wealth of information to his clients.  The obit was written by a Ms. Modular. HTML5.

M-Learning: Where’s the app for that?

eLearning 24-7

Saba Centra. As I write on my iPad, thoughts swirl abound. With all these vendors talking about their solution and its capabilities on mobile devices, it should be easy to find an app for that. Regardless if the vendor is m-learning specific, content authoring tool, LMS, web conferencing or a hybrid.  It shouldn’t matter. If your telling me your solution is mobile ready, then all I should need to do is go iTunes or Android and find your app.  Simple, right? Ahh, here’s the rub. It isn’t. Thus they can advertise they offer mobile learning. Even better. emTrain? SumTotal?

Learning in 3D Summer 2009: Class Five

Kapp Notes

We started in Second Life and then we went to ProtoSphere and then to Centra and then back to Second Life. We visited the Genome project and the Particle Laboratory in Second Life, both great places and then we went into ProtoSphere to check it out and then we went to learn a little about scripting in Centra and then we went into Second Life to do some scripting.

Blogcast Bloomsburg University: Video in e-Learning

Kapp Notes

Captured content via Centra, sent playback to vendor to transcribe and converted it into a minute script in aCNN-type presentation for delivery via an iPod. Rachel Vazquez and Pete Mitchell (alum) presented on how they used video in e-learning and how they had to convert video to an e-learning format. They also discussed how they are delivering training via video iPods. They are contemplating the development of the a monthly vodcast to send to all of the employees.

For example: in 2003, the low estimate for developing One Hour of Instructor-led, Web-based training delivery (using software such as Centra, Adobe Connect, or WebEx-two-way live audio with PowerPoint)was 30 hours and the high estimate was 80 hours. Ever wonder how long it takes to design and develop one hour of e-Learning? How Long Does it Take? If nothing else, check out the chart.

Living off the Land: Capturing The Voice of Experts

The Learning Circuits

My first thought was using Centra, but the client always uses the telephone for voice, and I am not sure if they have save capability. In one project on which I am working, I have been asked for a strategy to quickly capture a lot of presentations from a lot of people to share with others. second option is to use the record voice option in PowerPoint. third is to use a tool like Audacity to record an MP3, and then have some one else align that with slides.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Tony Karrer

In addition to the four they list, I've personally had experience with GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar, Elluminate, Centra and Interwise. Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome." Here's the question: We are currently moving toward web-based training for an external audience and have been experimenting with a modest product called Ready Talk. We are considering moving to other products such as Adobe Connect.

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.

consolidation continues - BlackBoard + WebCT & more.

The Learning Circuits

This announcement comes on the heels of Saba acquiring Centra. Plus Saba + Centra creates a US$100M revenue company which is not too shabby! Wow, consolidation is running rampart in the eLearning space as everyone continues to merge or acquire. Look to your left and look to your right; easily one of those will not be around in six months. Today BlackBoard announced plans to merge with WebCT; the two leading providers in the higher education eLearning space (BlackBoard alone forecasts US$150M+ for their fiscal year). Clark - you need to update your Chart of Consolidations !

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?

Google Wave

Viplav Baxi Meanderings

This has real important connotations for virtual classroom environments (imagine an Adobe Connect Professional environment merged with Google Wave merged with a SABA Centra!). Check out Google Wave. The concept is striking and ambitious. Also very relevant to what we have been talking about in terms of PLEs. At the core, there are a few important architectural dimensions. Firstly, content structure. A few years back I had designed an architecture for a content management system that structured out content in a tree format. Essentially blocks of content could be hierarchically structured.

Why an Instructional Design Degree from Bloomsburg University ROCKS!

Kapp Notes

The latest version of Adobe PhotoShop and Flash, Lectora, Adobe Captivate, Plateau (LMS), Adobe Connect, and Saba's Centra to name a few. So, let me describe why getting a graduate degree from Bloomsburg University's Department of Instructional Technology ROCKS and why our ID graduates can easily hold their own against non-degreed folks (and then some). Full disclosure--I am a professor in the department and might be biased in my opinions but I am going to try to stay neutral* First, Cammy said, "maybe ID programs need to come out of business schools instead of education schools."
