13:50:02 matt montagne -> hey everyone
13:50:53 Karen Dennis -> Hi from Illinois!
13:54:16 Eurominuteman -> hi peoples
13:54:32 Eurominuteman -> yahoo what?
13:55:01 Eurominuteman -> yahoo stream? where is that
13:55:08 JL -> http://live.yahoo.com/webcastacademy
13:56:58 Eurominuteman -> i got it
13:59:01 shoemap -> Hi everyone!
13:59:43 paul mclean -> -EdTechTalk: You are using live.yahoo instead of ustream?
13:59:51 sonjag -> Hi Pam... hi all...
14:00:01 derrallg -> Hi Sonja
14:01:07 sonjag -> What are we seeing on the right this week? Looks like someone's desktop... shows the WorldBridges chat and the # of viewers.
14:01:28 matt montagne -> are we streaming yet?
14:01:30 sonjag -> I don't remember seeing that before.
14:01:34 derrallg -> yes Jeff is using Live Yahoo
14:01:37 derrallg -> yes
14:02:23 matt montagne -> ahh
14:02:34 matt montagne -> I am now getting audio via yahoo tool
14:02:50 lorna -> what is the link again pls
14:03:19 shoemap -> http://live.yahoo.com/webcastacademy
14:03:32 paul mclean -> hello
14:03:40 derrallg -> hi Paul
14:04:02 matt montagne -> audio is a little wonky
14:04:13 matt montagne -> yahoo
14:04:26 sonjag -> What features are you looking for in Moodle?
14:04:31 matt montagne -> breaking in and out a bit...yurs is a little better Jeff
14:04:35 paul mclean -> You have to lower the volume in one to make the other one not freak out
14:04:44 matt montagne -> the person talking about moodle was breaking a bit
14:05:17 sonjag -> I'm not hearing audio issues...
14:05:43 matt montagne -> audio decent from Jeff and Derrall...
14:05:49 shoemap -> Anyone want to talk about their interncast this week?
14:06:02 shoemap -> We can add you to the SKype call
14:06:25 kolmstead -> I haven't had any problems with the assignments in Moodle. I set it up by topic, add assignments and have students submit their work.
14:06:53 sonjag -> The WA site seems to be using Drupal. Since you don't quiz, test or keep grades, doesn't seem like you really need Moodle. I'm asking because I manage a Moodle site now and would be willing to help but don't see a need with WA.
14:07:03 matt montagne -> bad weather is good for sustaining participation!
14:07:16 lorna -> cross platform broadcast - nicecast plus ustream what it the protocol
14:07:19 jo_mcleay -> I am almost at that point Jeff
14:07:42 Eurominuteman -> converge into second life
14:08:11 sonjag -> Is there another chat going on? I don't see any chat from karen olmstead but you mention something that she said.
14:08:26 Eurominuteman -> sloodle connects SL and moodle
14:09:07 mary -> sloodle sounds useful
14:09:53 kolmstead -> @sonyag - I'm in this chat
14:09:53 matt montagne -> there is a volume slider right below video window
14:09:58 Eurominuteman -> convergence is probably the core advantage point
14:10:11 mary -> is ther supposed to be sound?
14:10:24 Eurominuteman -> yes
14:10:39 paul mclean -> I can hear you
14:10:52 mary -> 111
14:11:09 Eurominuteman -> converge 3D, audio, video, desktop sharing
14:11:35 jo_mcleay -> I just wanted to come in today to say that I can't stay
14:11:51 paul mclean -> I just did that this week on a PC
14:11:51 jo_mcleay -> I will listen to the audio later
14:11:55 matt montagne -> lorna probably wants to know about academy ustream account access
14:12:00 shoemap -> OK, Jo
14:12:05 JL -> nice that you could stop by Jo - any issues, questions, concerns?
14:12:05 jo_mcleay -> so I am saying bye
14:12:17 jo_mcleay -> just that I feel behind Jeff
14:12:29 jo_mcleay -> will try to catch up this week
14:12:40 jo_mcleay -> ciao
14:14:19 shoemap -> Who would like to join the Skype call?
14:14:36 mary -> hi durff
14:14:43 derrallg -> hi durff
14:14:52 paul mclean -> I found the Ustream and live.yahoo were much end user friendlier then using a shoutcast.
14:14:55 Durff -> hey look at that cool player!
14:15:02 Durff -> hi all
14:15:21 matt montagne -> the web based player makes it easier, but audio quality is wonky via ustream
14:15:28 matt montagne -> I agree w/Derrall's take
14:15:39 Durff -> why no team up
14:15:50 Durff -> some do one and some do the other
14:15:52 matt montagne -> there is no perfect way...
14:16:06 Durff -> nothing is ever perfect
14:16:18 matt montagne -> the chat tool isn't perfect either...
14:16:47 Durff -> newbie's are over whelmed at first
14:16:49 matt montagne -> but there aren't many community chats that are that great
14:16:54 Durff -> so we explain
14:17:09 derrallg -> yes the chat can be too confusing
14:17:12 Durff -> glad she is picking on you matt
14:17:32 Durff -> it takes a bit
14:17:33 matt montagne -> lorna always picks on me!!!;)
14:17:38 Durff -> :)
14:17:51 Durff -> i'm probably next
14:18:10 paul mclean -> You can make a shoutcast easier for anewbie by having them dowload vlc media player. When they install it everything works without having to walk them through configuration issues.
14:18:48 matt montagne -> I like that little Yahoo Live sound...it is like a shoosh!
14:19:20 Durff -> shoosh - what a neat sound word
14:19:32 Eurominuteman -> an example of convergence
14:19:48 Durff -> the red button
14:19:51 mary -> is it supposed to show a player in a player in a player ad infinitum (like liiking in a mirror in amorror etc.)?
14:19:58 Durff -> yes
14:20:03 matt montagne -> lorna-you should share your parents as partners experience...
14:20:07 Durff -> someone having fun
14:20:29 Eurominuteman -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcXEznPXj8k&feature=related
14:20:35 Durff -> i have brought students in and they caught on
14:20:51 paul mclean -> Us old people are always the problem
14:21:10 Durff -> who are you calling old?
14:21:16 paul mclean -> Me
14:21:21 paul mclean -> Yes
14:21:21 Eurominuteman -> Intro Video: Classroom Of The Future
14:21:27 mary -> now ther are 6 yahoo screens
14:21:28 matt montagne -> we have audio from Yahoo Live
14:21:31 mary -> but we have sound
14:21:59 Durff -> yes
14:22:16 Eurominuteman -> i am taking time for orientation since 2 courses
14:22:17 paul mclean -> Yes is does appear to have a better picture
14:22:20 matt montagne -> I don't think audio is as good as ustream
14:22:23 mary -> why does the yahoo screen keep embedding itself in itself ever smaller images?
14:22:24 matt montagne -> but who knows
14:22:46 paul mclean -> Does it record like ustream?
14:22:51 mary -> yes
14:23:14 mary -> thanks
14:23:21 mary -> yes good explanation
14:23:51 paul mclean -> I could not find it either, which is why I have to use ustream, even though the video would make me want to use yahoo.
14:23:52 mary -> what software are you using to capture your desktop?
14:24:24 matt montagne -> what is a grad cast? Will you elaborate? I've read about it, but...
14:24:26 JL -> http://webcammax.com/
14:24:31 paul mclean -> webcammax
14:24:52 mary -> webcammax is the software?
14:24:59 derrallg -> yes
14:25:05 mary -> thank you
14:25:09 derrallg -> for mac you can use Camtwist
14:25:12 Durff -> i graduate in 2017
14:25:22 JL -> http://www.webcastacademy.net/node/1176
14:25:55 sheila -> I'll be in Belize next week. Maria and I are going to try to connect while I'm down there. I'm hoping to find high speed and have some Belizean teachers there or NH teachers talking about their experiences. I'll let you all know if it's going to work.
14:26:10 derrallg -> that sounds great Sheila
14:26:19 paul mclean -> browser just crashed
14:26:19 mary -> what can you say about moodle and secondlife
14:26:32 matt montagne -> I'm jealous Sheila
14:26:33 mary -> or have you already covered that
14:27:23 sonjag -> I think the sloodle sounds very interesting! I just read about it... I will try to set it up on my test server!
14:27:28 lorna -> could you please explain second life and what it does
14:27:52 Eurominuteman -> have you converged into SL actually
14:27:53 mary -> second life is a 3 d
14:28:02 paul mclean -> Brave man
14:28:03 mary -> virtual reality chat room
14:28:12 lorna -> go for it
14:28:13 mary -> you can hava an avatar
14:28:23 mary -> and interact with others like in a video game
14:28:33 mary -> it has places to go , classes to attend
14:28:34 jbennett -> so JL is using webcammax to record this program?
14:28:37 Durff -> a virtual world
14:28:55 lorna -> I now I saw that ane it seemed a little silly - what am i missing
14:29:05 paul mclean -> The only way I oculd stream second life was using two machines, and using the svideo out form one machine into webcammax on the streaming machine
14:29:24 matt montagne -> that is really cool jeff
14:29:45 matt montagne -> 2nd like looks pretty decent thru the yahoo live
14:29:46 Eurominuteman -> looks like broadband is a bottleneck
14:29:53 jbennett -> so how is webcam max different or similiar to camtasia?
14:30:22 Durff -> yes jeff audio starting downhill a bit....and back up
14:30:22 paul mclean -> When I tried to stream second life form the same machine I was running second life on, it was too much of a drain, even on a duel core machine
14:30:34 matt montagne -> Hey Jess M!

14:31:00 jessmcculloch -> good morning! well, afternoon. sorry I'm late.
