Here it is!  My third interncast!  This file is a recording of a final review session I held for students in my KNR 113 Personal Fitness class at Illinois State University.  I did have a couple of students Skype in with their questions, however, the majority of students asked their questions through the chat room.  Laura Vedeen, my graduate assistant, assisted as my "co-host."

P.S. Sorry for the echo at the beginning of audio.

My thoughts as a newbie

I am always looking for ways to help build communities and find ways to communicate. Especially when it comes to connecting parents and schools. So when I happened upon Webcast academy and Edtechtalk I knew that there were some good things going on in this community. I am technically literate and a have a good knowledge of how to use the Internet and related technologies. Thankfully the door was opened and I dove right into a world of screencasts, broadcasts and exciting visionary people to help me out. Despite my skills, some days I felt totally overwhelmed and challenged. I was told it would be like that.

As I set up the Parent Involvement webcast, Parents as Partners, it became very clear that the audience that the web cast would be targeting would need some hand holding.

Interncast 1 Karen Dennis 2008-2-15

This interncast is an interview with Laura Vedeen, an exercise physiology graduate student at Illinois State University.  Laura is an Ironman triathlete and avid outdoor runner.  While I am a runner also, I find it hard to run outside in these cold central Illinois winters.  Thus, I find myself "stuck" on a treadmill indoors.  Laura provides helpful information on cold weather running gear that will be sure to keep you warm so you can keep running outside, even when it's really cold!

Well, this assignment took me some time.  I spent two entire days trying to figure out why I couldn't record what I was hearing on the skype call.  My voice was going through loud and clear, but their's was not.  Jose helped me out tremendously Saturday night.  Thanks, Jose!  My only problem, though, is that while I can now record both ends of the call, the other end is very faint.  I have tried adjusting all my settings, and still no luck!  I welcome any ideas or input!

Get this party started!

Finally feeling like I "get" what I'm supposed to do with this! A lot of that has to do with the first class (but missed the second... have to go back and listen to that!) and reading around on the website. This is a great community! Really liking that I can listen to other people's projects/ideas/intros and that we'll continue to work together. Great collaborative environment that I hope to try to re-create in part at my school.
