2-way Telephony reflection

It took a fair amount of time with the skype lady almost two weeks ago to figure out how to get this to work (see last blog post).  Then I procrastinated . . . and went to Educon . . . and found myself scrambling this morning to find someone to talk to.

After some frustration with what I thought were setting issues, Lee B helped me out and it turns out my dual 1/8th inch plug headset wasn't going to work for this. I went to the local Radio Shack and ended up with a Logitec 250 USB headset, and things went MUCH smoother! I figured I'd post the settings here that worked, since they are a little different from Lee's screencast since she's using other software.

First post, lots to learn

It was an interesting intro session for the WCA class of 2.4 this afternoon (for me, for others much earlier in the morning!).  The noodling about and asking questions was a great way to get a sense of where everyone is with webcasting - and that we all have so much to learn, even those who have done this before. The changing pieces of technology and the ways in which they interact when combined will no doubt continue to make  webcasting a never-ending learning process.
