GoTo Meeting, Centra, Wimba, and other Web Conferencing Solutions…Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid
MARCH 19, 2011
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).

We have 2D Virtual Classrooms, Why 3D?
OCTOBER 29, 2008
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?
Teaching & Learning Conference
JUNE 18, 2012
With regard to content I took the opportunity to demonstrate Wimba Create , which in itself would act as nice advertisement for my training session. Overall the sessions seemed to go very well and there was a lot of interest pursuing the use of Wimba Create as a tool for converting Word docs.
Are you ready Tin Can
OCTOBER 15, 2012
And I would judge that you are still enthusiastic about scorm, and if you are regular to this blog then you will know that we make good use of Wimba Create for College generated content.
Making Mobile Learning Work
JULY 1, 2011
I can certainly sympathise with this last point, as a similar shift in perspective exists between class hand-outs and vle eLearning materials, which is precisely why we are heading down the Wimba Create route at the moment, but that’s an on-going story so please stay in touch for that.
Needs analysis– something old, something new
MAY 31, 2012
With heaps of respect for online survey tools (Survey Monkey, Qualtrics, and Zoomerang, for example) and web conferencing technologies (Connect, NetMeeting, and Wimba, for example), new forms of analysis turn attention to data that is waiting for us. When I was a young professor of instructional design and technology at San Diego State University , students often sought advice on how to make decisions about outcomes and strategies.

Evolving the E-Learning Experience for the 21st Century
MAY 2, 2011
As aforementioned one company called Wimba already has audio – voice capabilities within their social learning product, so that learners can say their comments on a discussion board and other learners can hear the voice comments rather than read them. What always stuns me are vendors who state they know what their learners want, but in reality have no clue, because they themselves do not see the technology and its usage among the masses. 2011.

SEPTEMBER 16, 2013
Following my rounds of staff meetings before the end of summer term last, I have this week started to get the training for elearning underway. I have managed to get a good number if staff from just all curriculum area’s to sign up for a session, the first of which ran this week.
Preparing for eLearning
MAY 17, 2011
Next creating the content, and potentially that could be very difficult, in that am I really expecting everyone to either rewrite existing material, and fortunately the answer is not really, instead we are going to be using Wimba Create.
JUNE 17, 2015
Maybe its just coincidence, well of course it is, but this week seems to have been full of requests and postings coming my way on blended online learning.

E-Learning Innovative Products – They are Out There
JANUARY 20, 2011
Wimba Collaboration Suite 6.0 – Live. I love innovation. It is what makes any product or service, aspire to new heights. I especially love it when it happens in the e-learning industry. Our industry is made up into four camps. Innovators and Risk Takers – emerging technology integrated, new ideas, pushing the envelope in what is possible in e-learning/social learning/m-learning, coming up with something that has never been done before – risk takers.
End of Year Conference
MAY 26, 2012

I was asked this week to provide a short session on using our Moodle vle for the for our end of year Teaching and Learning Conference here at the College.
RSC Moodle Roundtable
MARCH 22, 2012
For my own part in the day I brought along the work that I had been conducting on eLearning, much publicised on this blog, but I did take the opportunity to promote Wimba Create, which I think went down very positively.
Newsletter,feedback and eMaterials
JANUARY 31, 2012

Complaint? Students Don't Hang Out in Virtual Worlds After Class
OCTOBER 27, 2008
The same is true of Adobe Connect, Horizon Wimba and other 2D classroom software. In the course of a week, I get asked many questions about Virtual Worlds, an interesting one that keeps occurring goes something like this. It seems that students find virtual worlds boring.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question
APRIL 2, 2010
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.
