InternCast International Show

Lots of Lessons learned today.

First, Skype can badly misbehave and you have to keep it going. The solution? Maybe drop skype and keep talking to the listeners and asking for their input in the chat area.

(Almost) Webcasting

As I read and listen to the posts of others and see/hear your enthusiastic voices, I am greatly encouraged that my technical difficulties will soon be overcome. With some initial help from Lee's great screencasts, I was able to get most of my settings correct. Then, about two and a half hours ago with the help of Lisa and Jason, I was able to get all the settings nailed down and actually stream on Sandbox B. That felt good, until I listened to the archive and then realized that I could only hear Jason, not me!

Webcast Academy 2.2.1 (First Meeting) July 25, 2007

Hi everyone. Welcome to Webcast Academy Class 2.2!  It was a fast moving exciting first class. Please excuse the variations in sound. I'm actually having some troubleshooting problems with my sound and tried to even it out a little. I'll be looking for ideas and help from you too!

This week's assignments:

  • record, edit, and post your 2 minute intro
  • record a two-way telephony call, edit it and post
  • join the Class of 2.2 skype group chat
  • Also, download your streaming software of choice and make sure it "goes."

Relevant screencasts:

If you have questions, please check the Book of Webcasting and the FAQ.  If you don't see any answers there, please post  your questions to the Forums.  Don't be concerned that it's a 'stupid' question.
