Vance intends to be at http://tappedin.org from 11:30 GMT today, then at 12:30 GMT ...
Ilan Tochner will give us a variation on his presentation from the recent Moodle Moot Virtual Conference:Using Kitely Virtual Worlds on Demand for Immersive Courseware
View the event description and WiZiQ recording from MMVC11 here:
Ilan kindly agreed to give this talk last week Aug 28 at 18:00 GMT. At the usual time for these talks, 13:00 GMT, half a dozen people had appeared at TappedIn unaware of the late start (it had been announced but not noticed). Then when Ilan finally came online at 18:00 there were only he and I at Elluminate so we decided to reschedule for the following week at an earlier time. We have rescheduled for 12:30 GMT so as to finish by 13:30 and allow Ilan time to be where he needs to be at 14:00 GMT.
Another problem last week, Aug 28, was the connection with Elluminate. For some reason it kept disconnecting at my end. I might try it through my VPN, and Ilan and I will meet there Sept 4 at 11:30 GMT to test it, but if it doesn't work we might switch to WiZiQ. If you are online at that time you are welcome to join us for chat and testing.
When: 12:30 GMT (4:30 to 5:30 pm in the UAE)
Where: Blackboard Collaborate (Elluminate)
