Record Video Chat Interviews

Clark Quinn

It looks like ooVoo provides the split screen capability and ability to record and I've seen a couple instances on YouTube that look okay. I've personally not used ooVoo, so a bit worried about recommending it. A client of mine (celebrity) would like to record video interviews they are going to be doing with people all around the country.

Web Video Conferencing

In looking out there, it seems like there are some flash-based solutions like Sightspeed , ooVoo , SnapYap and Tokbox. Two of my start-up clients have recently discussed adding video conferencing to their web offering. Both startups use have two kinds of users involved who are going to want to do 1-to-1 communication through a variety of different communication approaches (text, phone, etc.) and now they want to explore providing video chat between the parties.

Collaboration Tools

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below. I would expect the document to continue to grow and change, but thought it would be worth having it available in a text format as well (so I can find it when I need it).

Learning Visions

These are my live blogged notes from a webinar presented by Brandon Hall on Wednesday, April 26 2011. (I I joined about 10 minutes late, so missed a bit!) Tom Werner, Chief Research Officer, Brandon Hall [link] LMSs are adding social features – including RSS feeds, peer ratings of content.

Open Source Web Conferencing Solutions – FREE

eLearning 24-7

Oovoo - limited features, two way video chat, files up to 5Mb, 6 way text chat. I have a real issue with vendors who charge extra – via a license with their “partner&# or otherwise for a web conferencing – and thus ability to offer webinars, in their solution. It should be free – 100%. No license fee, even though it is integrated into your solution, no extra cost – since it is integrated with your solution.

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.
