12:03:22 Kelly_Smith01 -> [i]whats happening?
12:03:23 PeggyG -> Hi everyone! So excited for your new webcast!!!
12:03:37 Cate -> Is there audio?
12:03:39 JenM -> @kelly … are you able to hear the audio?
12:03:48 @J_Schulz -> No audio here
12:04:13 @J_Schulz -> UStream box says ‘Off Air’
12:04:17 Cammy Bean -> There’s a ustream of hte audio somewhere…
12:04:28 JenM -> you should be able to click on the audio in the ustream window (you may need to refresh)
12:04:44 PeggyG -> click on the icon below EdTechTalk A. First icon opens iTunes
12:05:05 Robert ->
12:05:16 JenM -> yes … two audio options 1) ustream or 2) Edtechtalk A (has a slight delay)
12:08:57 mrsdurff -> ustream player to the right is not streaming, but ETT is loud and clear
12:09:14 PeggyG -> what is the online environment you’re using at Univ. of MT? maybe I missed that
12:09:32 mary engstrom -> We’re using Blackboard 7.3 currently…..
12:09:33 Robert -> Ahh, yes the Ustream on the right is a slightly different channel…
12:10:12 PeggyG -> so it is a fairly closed environment for students/faculty at your university?
12:10:50 jonidunlap -> I don’t know if it helps to know, but at the University of Colorado Denver we use eCollege, Blackboard and Adobe Connect for our online courses.
12:11:13 mary engstrom -> Peggy, you might characterize it as a fairly closed environment, but many faculty members use other tools, too (Web 2.0).
12:11:18 JenM -> @joni … we (Old Dominion University) also use BB and Adobe Connect
12:11:40 PeggyG -> @Mary-Thanks! I’d love to hear more about how you integrate BB with other tools. πŸ™‚
12:12:10 mary engstrom -> We’re going through a RFI process now and plan to have a new or upgraded LMS in place within the next couple of semesters.
12:13:08 mary engstrom -> Peggy,  I think you just provided us with a focus for a feature show!  
12:13:10 PeggyG -> are any of your faculty outside of Instructional Design using technology in their teaching?
12:13:15 PeggyG -> πŸ™‚
12:14:14 mary engstrom -> Peggy,  Yes; we have the full spectrum represented.
12:14:32 PeggyG -> in AZ a few of my colleagues are using wiki links within the BB environment to add that piece. some very nice results and helping students to learn about web 2.0 tools
12:14:48 mrsdurff -> AZ sounds so warm
12:14:57 mrsdurff -> I am so cold
12:15:15 PeggyG -> great questions about live/synchronous learning!
12:15:32 mary engstrom -> Nice, Peggy.  We also have iTunesU here, which some faculty use quite extensively.
12:15:39 PeggyG -> AZ is very nice right now–71 degree days/45 degree nights πŸ™‚
12:16:04 PeggyG -> yes, iTunesU is a great tool/resource and we are using that too
12:16:34 mrsdurff -> 16.2" snow
12:17:24 PeggyG -> is your student population fairly traditional college age students? our population ranges in ages from 18-60 and that provides additional challenges because many are working full time and raising families
12:17:43 PeggyG -> @mrsdurff come to AZ!! πŸ™‚
12:18:02 mrsdurff -> anyone hiring?
12:18:33 PeggyG -> not much hiring right now unfortunately–huge budget cuts!
12:18:42 JenM -> @peggy … at both Old Dominion and Indiana University we also have a wide range of ages (I hate the term, but "non-traditional" learner populations 24 – ?; working; families; school part-time)
12:18:44 mrsdurff -> Wonder the temp in Korea right now?
12:19:11 PeggyG -> @JenM-sounds very similar! do you find it challenging?
12:19:43 JenM -> @peggy … I’m currently a student, so I’m coming at it from the student’s perspective vs faculty
12:19:47 Robert -> Alternative student isn’t the best term either..
12:20:08 mrsdurff -> i’m a nontraditional teacher
12:20:30 JenM -> @lisa … πŸ™‚
12:20:57 PeggyG -> how do you motivate your students to become independent, self-starters with technology integration and not just do what is required for the course?
12:21:36 PeggyG -> @JenM-the student perspective is really valuable!! so glad you’re here!
12:21:41 mrsdurff -> show them the magid
12:21:44 mrsdurff -> magid
12:21:48 mrsdurff -> oi veh
12:22:43 PeggyG -> MAGIC πŸ™‚ tell your fingers πŸ™‚
12:23:56 PeggyG -> good way to describe that–many professional and personal distractions πŸ™‚
12:24:24 PeggyG -> great points about motivating students
12:25:36 JenM -> @joni … yes … I have been through many starts / stops trying to get student "cohort" groups together, but other commitments tend to derail most efforts
12:25:51 PeggyG -> in a future session I’d love to hear more about some of the fun, engaging activities you do to keep students feeling part of the community
12:26:12 PeggyG -> @JenM-excellent point!
12:27:20 mrsdurff -> jenM does that
12:27:36 PeggyG -> you could do a whole show on what people think Instructional Design means πŸ™‚
12:27:52 JenM -> @peggy … I think I will pass on that show πŸ™‚
12:28:10 mrsdurff -> mmm – how the playground is designed?
12:28:23 PeggyG -> I know what you mean! but there are so many different perceptions about ID πŸ™‚
12:28:38 mrsdurff -> where the teacher lounge is located?
12:29:11 PeggyG -> some faculty think they are doing online teaching when they give assignments to do online in lieu of a face-to-face class meeting
12:29:25 jonidunlap -> I think ID types like myself can learn a lot from the other design professions. Including playground designers. πŸ™‚ I love allowing myself to be inspired by the creative processes of other design professions.
12:29:36 mrsdurff -> πŸ™‚
12:29:50 mrsdurff -> eating lunch
12:30:05 PeggyG -> stick to this format–typing in chat works fine for me
12:30:13 Robert -> ok

12:31:44 mrsdurff -> do a show on UbD
12:31:56 JenM -> @lisa … ?
12:32:05 PeggyG -> do you have a wiki or blog to supplement the show where people can leave comments, suggest guests, etc?
