#OTvx13 – Virtual Classroom Trial
Date: 08/10/2013 Host: @Kirstyes
For this Tuesday’s #OTalk we are going to try something a little different.
Hopefully you are all aware that the 24 hour virtual conference will take place later this month (In the UK from 5pm Fri 25th Oct to 6.30pm Sat 26th Oct)
In order to prepare the #OTalk community to take part we will be taking you from Twitter to Blackboard Collaborate to test the virtual classroom and run you through the scheduled line up.
Prior to Tuesday you might find it useful to make sure that your computer is set up to use Blackboard by following the guidance on this link.
We will start on Twitter at 8pm using #otalk and share the link to the virtual test classroom.
We’d love as many of you as possible to join in so we can test the software and make sure it will take the strain of lots of excited OTs.
We believe you can access this using a mobile, e.g. iPad if you download the Blackboard Collaborate app – your ability to interact with the chat may be a little more limited but when I tried it the sound quality was very good.
If you have any questions do post them below and we will try our best to answer them – see you on Tuesday.
Please note there was some discussion about using a shortened version of the hashtag for this year so #OTvx13 (rather than #OT24vx13) – every extra counts!
