The Fall Blog Festival is underway well into it’s third hour and while I wait to listen in to the next presenter I thought I would begin my Blog entry to mark the occasion. Firstly getting into the event was in itself an exercise in patience and stamina, as the ‘link’ was not allowing anyone to stay inside the virtual classroom as it was a generic link to be used by one access only and not multiple access entries. Which is a shame because most likely many would not have had the patience to keep on trying or even communicating their difficulty and hence may have been put off by attending all-together. I fully missed the opening Ceremony and just made it in by a hair during the latter half of Vance Steven’s presention. The good thing is Dr Nellie Deutsch organizer extraordinaire of this online event is video taping every presenter and then uploading to YouTube as seperate entries. Now that is a feat in itself!
The present situation is that anyone using the link as direct access is not going to get in so the best solution is for that person to Register for the event in their own name and then ‘join’ the live session. The link/s to join are as follows:
WizIQ FBF Course link
Moodle FBF Course on Moodle Area
Youtube FBF intro
Smore banner of the event
I created a PLOTAGON for the Event too, here is the YouTube version:
or go to Plotagon link
So now I will listen in to all the presenters and then get back here to write my own reflection.
Check back in soon :-)
