I thought Michelle's presentation on online discussions was really helpful. I took away a lot of very practical information, including ideas about how I would integrate some of this into my class. What I learned right away was that I'm not ready to put the most interactive part of my current in-person online: it simply takes too much work to make the interaction part meaningful in an online environment. But I certainly now see how it could be done, and that will be a long term vision for me as I look to the future. In the meantime I think I'll start with a smaller goal, something less interactive.
I am also intrigued by the possibilities afforded through VideoAnt. This could be a very helpful tool for SW students in field placements in agencies.
Most entertaining for the day: David juggling!
