Image of Team workInteresting in joining us for some “hands on” online professional development this Friday? Free, online and ANYONE can attend!!!!

Jo Hart (from C.Y O’Connor College of TAFE) and I will be running online professional development this Friday 31 October from 9-10 AM (Western Australia time which is UTC/GMT +9 hours – check this time converter for the time in your location – thanks to Carla Arena for creating the link for us) using Elluminate (a live classroom). This will be a “hand’s on” session designed for participants to share their knowledge/skills and help each other increase their skills in using web technologies for elearning.

At the start of the session we will be asking for participant’s input on what they would like covered during the session. All suggestions welcomed!

Here are some examples of topic ideas that we could cover during the session:

  • Using various features of Elluminate to make it interactive
  • What is a ….. wiki/blog/podcast/digital story etc and how can we use them with students
  • Using ARED or Hot Potatoes (only one feature at a time)
  • Using Photofiltre to make images appropriate size etc
  • Creating Toondoos

To get the most out of attending the session we recommend you have a headset with microphone so you can talk to the other participants. However you will be able to hear and write text messages if you have external speakers.

If you’ve never used Elluminate we recommend that prior to the session you go to Elluminate Product Support and complete:

  • Step 1 Java software check – If not installed follow the instructions to install
  • Step 2 Complete your set up – Join the Configuration Room to test your connection and configure your audio.
  • Step 3 Learn more about Elluminate Live! – Check out the online tutorials

  2. @Carla We are hoping to look at running PD frequently — I will just get back to how many people turn up and whether they enjoy it. Thanks for creating the time converter link for me.

    @Ralph Look forward to also seeing you tomorrow. I’m hoping people will be interested in learning how to use ARED as Jo uses it a lot and said she will show me it.

  3. Thank you very much for helping me with my clustrmap and sidebar. It works perfectly now. How does it look in your neighborhood around Christmas time?
