Synchronous Software Scavenger Hunts

Experiencing eLearning

If I’m doing software application training, doing it as a webinar isn’t really my first choice. I’d rather create a bunch of Captivate tutorials and job aids to let people learn at their own pace, when they need to use the skills. Application training via a synchronous tool like WebEx, Adobe Connect, or Elluminate too often ends up with passive learners. I’m guilty of this myself too; I’ve done some boring synchronous training that didn’t offer any opportunity to practice skills. Tips for Effective Webinars. Small Group Scavenger Hunt.

Twitter and Webinars

Tony Karrer

The last few online webinars I've attended there's been an interesting issue. So, both the webinar tool (Elluminate, WebEx, Adobe Connect, etc.) Presentation Mastery: Twitter as a Presentation Resource There are lots of good suggestions in these, but they don't really address the issue of how to present when the audience may be splitting their chat between the webinar tool and twitter. In the meeting that I ran, I suggested that we would prefer that everyone uses the chat inside the webinar tool. Why are profiles so buried in these webinar tools?

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Clark Quinn

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." Our webinars have been successful by our standards and for the most part, we've been early adopters of the technology. If you've done webinars, you know that they are different to design and deliver successfully than other kinds of presentations and training. And I used to with Elluminate, but have not had much issue recently. Can you change out technically fairly easily?

Running a MOOC

Learning with e's

have also presented recently at one of Steve Hargardon's live Elluminate global webinars, and have to say that the experience was very similar to the MOOC. know that there is more to a MOOC than participating in live webinars. Everyone who participates enjoys the experience, and everyone goes away with more questions than they arrived with. That's learning. an OOC, isn't it?

Four Reasons you need structure for informal learning

Xyleme

Normally, our webinars are formal, tightly scripted and tightly controlled events that are planned out to the smallest detail; and I take great pride in the overwhelmingly positive feedback we always get. What this webinar taught me is that it’s actually somewhere in between the two. The result: Not my most successful webinar. Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc. This stung!

Clive on Learning

Arriving late to an auditorium already full to the brim, I was forced yesterday to watch Itiel Dror's presentation to the ALT-C 2008 conference in Leeds from a second room where a video feed was being streamed in using Elluminate. Hearing a speaker, which is the most you can expect from a typical webinar, is a good but very much second-best option. Now I've seen Itiel speak a number of times, so my attention focused more on the effectiveness of the technology that was being used to deliver his presentation. Others I'd miss out on. Now that's a difficult one

First Impressions of TelePresence

Experiencing eLearning

We decided to mute, similar to what we would do with a big group in a web conferencing tool like WebEx or Elluminate. Just like in a webinar, it’s easier to multitask or split your attention if you’re not talking and actively involved. I recently participated in my first TelePresence meeting. If you haven’t seen this technology, imagine videoconferencing, but life-size and set up so it feels more like you’re physically in the same room. Here’s another video showing the technology to give you an idea of what it’s like. It’s Really Cool.
