Teaching the Teachers: Online NW Presentation Notes
Teaching the Teachers
Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen, Oregon Institute of Technology, Presentation notes
Presenter used Elluminate to present and record the program presentation. Different media available: Dim Dim, Elluminate, Wimba, Opal, Activate. These sessions given by librarians are provided once per month (new topics); everyone gets one month, the third thursday of every month (everyone gets one month) and the topics are listed online. In session signs are posted online (Creative Commons/Copyright, ILL, Using Summit and ILL, evaluating info on the web, Black Board, digital photography). http://www.oit/digitallibraries.oit.edu
Questions after the presentation:
Have you considered using this to reach students? Yes. Down the road.
Demo how to use Elluminate for live web pages. You can screen sharing, screen cast, video share. It records what you view which is posted online.
What about privacy? It is hosted online on Elluminate–we can’t edit out participant comments. Everyone knows that the session is recorded.
Did you want the platform or the topics? Started out listening to podcast, but wanted an interactive experience (started out with the topic).
Canned vs. interactive recordings, which is better. Personal preference–interactive is better.
The technology is all for economy of scale: 5 people vs 50 people
Has WebX been used for this? Maybe.
