I don’t have a video or sound

anyone else have audio/video issues?
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Nop everything is fine in the Southern hemisphere
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
I can watch and listen on you tube but not here, https://edtechtalk.net/live/ihaq

 

 

 
 
everything is fine for me πŸ™‚
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Hi Peggy!
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Vanessa, have you tried refreshing https://edtechtalk.net/live/ihaq ?

 

 

 
 
I got the error message, refreshed and all is fine now.

 

 

 
 
Hello all … been so long I forgot how to get here

 

 

 
 
hello
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Hello Carol!

 

 

 
 
ah, finally accepted me πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
hooray Carol!!

 

 

 
 
Hi and thanks Peggy … for the url

 

 

 
 
can you track assignments/tasks on Schoology?
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Jeff, refreshed several times
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
yes, Peggy. Sorry for the tech issues Vanessa.

 

 

 
 
still not seeing the chat window, Vanessa? I had the same problem with in a podcast last hour. but when I logged into this one it came up fine. Which browser are you using? I’m using Firefox which just had an update.

 

 

 
 
hahaha! solving problems is so easy here!!!

 

 

 
 
Hooray! Dave has sound connection

 

 

 
 
I think using Weebly for that is a great idea! simple, free, easy to use
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Peggy, is fine. It’s the video. I opened YouTube to get it because it is not running here

 

 

 
 
the clients don’t need access to the entire course do they?

 

 

 
 
thanks
 
This was our first iteration … https://sites.google.com/site/oerforccr/
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
hahaha! Archaeaologistis! I am imagining them trying to figure out my things!!

 

 

 
 
I recognize the Drupal face πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
I agree with Dave…. use Moodle πŸ™‚
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Once I tried to use Moodle and I found it very difficult, should I try it again?

 

 

 
 
Yes, I a=gree about Moodle

 

 

 
 
No

 

 

 
 
I agree with Maria

 

 

 
 
I learned to use Moodle so that’s saying something… πŸ™‚ I like it!

 

 

 
 
not pretty, but simple
 
You guys (ladies) are awesome! I feel like this is a therapy session πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
Not really that simple anymore, either. Enrollment methods alone confuse most of my teachers. And it’s really hard on the servers.

 

 

 
 
keep it simple Jen πŸ™‚ Moodle will do what you want πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
πŸ™‚ therapy for all

 

 

 
 
great point about ability to track with Moodle!

 

 

 
 
You can make Moodle as complicated or simple as you want
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
I have a serious LMS allergy — prefer open indie arrangements like Lisa Lane’s for POTcert and Laura Gibbs’ http://anatomy.lauragibbs.net/
 
Me, too, Vanessa!!!
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Me three.
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
but then I am de-institutionalized and running something less formal than courses
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Lisa’s site is lovely
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
yes, and she’s been tweaking it for several years

 

 

 
 
I prefer indie, and not able to use Moodle anymore … but it is one way to go

 

 

 
 
I think that’s a compelling argument re need for funding in the future.
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Carol and Jeff, take a look at Laura Gibbs’ too

 

 

 
 
Thanks, Vanessa … will do
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
Thanks Vanessa, IΒ΄ll check it out later
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
I have been using Blogger to blog, not to teach, and still I find trouble embedding badges for eg
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Take a look at her http://oudigitools.blogspot.com/ too
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Who else here is in Connected Courses?

 

 

 
 
is that Lisa’s site that you posted earlier? livingarchives?
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Dave’s site circa 2007
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
I am doing a Coursera course on Online Teaching https://www.coursera.org/course/ltto
jefflebow

 

 

 
 
Maria, any consensus there about what to use?
Maria Colussa

 

 

 
 
nop, it really is up to the teachers what platform to choose, not many new things out there
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
Connected Courses, http://connectedcourses.net/

 

 

 
 
great summary Dave πŸ™‚ can’t wait to hear what she decides πŸ™‚
Vanessa Vaile

 

 

 
 
just not the same without Dave though

 

 

 
 
my vote is for Moodle πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
Mine too, for now, anyway

 

 

 
 
report back Jen πŸ™‚

 

 

 
 
thanks Vanessa

 

 

 
 
Well, this was fun … as always πŸ™‚ thanks

  1. WordPress export options

    point of clarification…

    While still not as easy as duplicating a course for a new cohort in Moodle, it does appear that WordPress provides some flexibility in backup and reinstall options….
