New developments include attempt to use hangout last night for a class we stream from the north to the south campus. Students were shy and didn’t raise any questions. Thom and I discussed techniques to bridge that shyness e.g. Reverse camera so students can see who is in the other classroom and having the small group introduce themselves. That breaks the ice.
I discovered that Skype can be used to beam guest lecturers find from afar. Today we set up my Skype account. Thank you team AUT.
Tomorrow I’ll attend a webinar on ageing so that colleagues here can get the benefit of long distance delivery. Will report back on the potential of that system for future teaching.
