Webcasts 2.3.1a, 2.3.1b: 2007-10-14: Comments and Questions

I thoroughly enjoyed the webcasts this past Sunday and found them to be  both enjoyable and informative. I appreciated getting more detail about assignments and audio recording specs, and it was especially nice to be able to hear the voices of other interns, in particular Spice from China.

I'm putting together an audio introduction but have discovered a problem with my account settings: I'm only able to create discussion topics—not audio or a blog. I think this is because I was originally classified as a basic member, not an academy intern, so my permissions were limited. Anyway, they definitely need to be updated.

Could someone please do what is necessary so I can create a blog and audio?

Thanks!

Sorry about that Dennis. You should be 'good to go' now.

Many thanks!

Hi, Plato/Jeff.

Many thanks for the updates. My Create Content section looks quite different now—and I'm definitely good to go! I'll be busy, starting today, with making use of the new possibilities.

Good job

Hi,

I couldn't wait to listen to the session 2.3 1 B that I missed it live streaming at the point by time zone differences. Glad that I found the audio this early morning & just finished listening. I liked it as great as 1 A when I was in last time. Through this time I learned more info. in the interactive conversation. I think that is what webcasting means to, whatever broadcasting based in participants'active. Keep up with good job. Have fun ;)
