Webheads join Vance at his presentation at the EMerging ELearning Conference at HCT in Abu Dhabi

<find this place in the chat logs below -->

More video snippets:

This was a part of the e-Merging e-Learning Conference at Higher Colleges of Technology Men's College, Abu Dhabi, UAE, . The presentation was entitled: A visit with Webheads online community of practice for language learners and teachers, scheduled at noon GMT, Sunday September 8, 2002.

Abstract: Writing for Webheads is an ongoing 'experiment in world friendship through online language learning' whose participants have been meeting weekly online for almost 4 years now. During that time, Webheads have experimented with numerous synchronous and web-based multimedia communications formats, and presented at several live and online conference venues. More recently, the community has formally expanded to embrace language teaching professionals in a community of practice called Webheads in Action. These communities come together online every Sunday for a regular session held at about the time of this demonstration. Therefore we have an opportunity at this session to convene members of the community online to demonstrate 'live' our use of free and easily accessible text, video, and voice enhanced synchronous communications technologies, while showing conference delegates around the Webheads community.

VennyS . o O ( reading horses? )

SusanneN asks, "Did he really grow a beard, Claire?"

AidenY says, "oh sus, yes, he's sporting on a new look"

SusanneN says, "Yes, reading-horse, like rocking-horse for little kids"

AidenY says, "younger and dashing"

Claire [guest] says, "yes, it looks like he did. I don't know why he wants to hide his handsome face"

VennyS [:-] zwaai to Susanne

AidenY says, "no, no, perhaps he forgot to shave and too lazy to"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "ahem"

AidenY says, "LOL"

SusanneN says, "Well, my son shaves his skull, I'd love him to hide his ugly skull"

AidenY says, "LOL, sus"

Claire [guest] says, "hahhaa"

AidenY says, "that's so funny sus"

Claire [guest] says, "my son had a mohawk when he was in high school. I hated it"

BJB [HelpDesk] says, "very diplomatic of you, Vance ;-)"

PhilB [WebTeach] says, "DLing Yahoo now..."

VanceS [post-presentation] asks, "do you have a webcam too Phil?"

PhilB [WebTeach] says, "Somewhere around here..."

AidenY says, "would be nice if TI has voice capabilities"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "wouldn't it"

AidenY says, "so we don't need to open too many screens"

Claire [guest] says, "I don't know why you all hate ivisit. it has voice capabilities"

SusanneN says, "My husband once came home with his chin saved, from having e huge beard, My daughter, then two years old, was waiting for hin in the front door, but when she saf his strange face, she just shut the door on him! I felt like wise, as I had never seen him beardless either"

You hear a quiet popping sound; SRI_95 [guest] has disconnected.

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "we don't hate it, it's just easier to do Yahoo"

VanceS . o O ( for pc people, I mean )

Claire [guest] says, "yeah for you, but until this beta, it didn't work on macs, and myt cams dont' work on PCs (we've had this discussion before)"

VanceS [post-presentation] asks, "you're doing well with Yahoo Claire. Can you hear us?"

Claire [guest] says, "no,"

AidenY asks, "will there be any possibilities that TI adds voice capabilities?"

SusanneN says, "WE have tested iVisit several times, not a very good transmission of sound and a lot of useless features, making it too complicated to use. But I do like, of course, that it is for both macs and windows"

AidenY asks, "BJ?"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "well, we'll sort that out for next time (for me)"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "I really have to go"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "it's 6 now"

AidenY says, "who's speaking spanish"

AidenY asks, "rita?"

Claire [guest] exclaims, "bye vance, nice to finally SEE you!"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "I have to be somewhere at 7 and somewhere else at 8"

BJB [HelpDesk] says, "no voice as far as I know"

Claire [guest] says, "such a busy man"

SusanneN asks, "Did you get over that post conf blues, vance?"

AidenY asks, "abu dhabi?"

DafneG exclaims, "Thank you very much, Vance and congratulations!"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "yeah, into the post-post conf blues now"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "we made a great showing"

DafneG says, "for this conference"

Claire [guest] says, "ahh"

DafneG says, "a great success"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "it was, always is thanks to you guys"

AidenY says, "it was, pretty convincing too"

DafneG says, "better than that"

DafneG says, "at least more practical"

VennyS [to Claire [guest]]: "are you going to present such an online meet at the conference?"

SusanneN exclaims, "You just wait till some of our group would win the nobel prize for inventing the Webheads!!"

Claire [guest] asks, "I don't know -- what conference?"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "second time I dropped my cam tonight"

Claire [guest] says, "in my lab we put strips of velcro under all the cams"

SusanneN says, "Vande, better make a safety belt for webcams'"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "check out for the url of the conf"

Claire [guest] says, "only after two of them fell on the floor! :-)"

SusanneN says, "Yes! I thought os using velcro, too"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "still works"

BJB [HelpDesk] says, "good idea, Claire"

DafneG asks, "is that the Creative one?"

AidenY says, "yes, vance we can still see you"

SusanneN says, "If I put the oppposite velcro on a board, I might even be able to deplace the webcam"

Claire [guest] says, "vance, watch out for firewalls in saudi. when I was in egypt, I couldn't use netmeeting or ivisit or tappedin becuase of the firewall"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "they have them here too, and we worked three days to get rid of it"

SusanneN says, "I think Vnace has been fighting the firewall inspectors this time, too'"

AidenY says, "we discussed that claire, and was brought up during the try outs"

BJB [to Claire [guest]]: "Vance just spent a week having techs dismantle the firewall in the lab he's in"

SusanneN says, "A good pioneer work"

DafneG says, "and changing their minds about chats"

SusanneN exclaims, "Crash the firewalls!!!"

Claire [guest] exclaims, "yeah -- crash them all!"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "we don't need no education du du du"

SusanneN asks, "Who's afraid of the big bad chat?"

Claire [guest] says, "vance, maybe I should recommend that the folks in cairo hire you as a consultant to dismantle their firewall. I recommended in my report that they get rid of it"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "ok, once again, thanks for everything"

Claire [guest] exclaims, "i LOVE Pink floyD!!!!!"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "I've got to go, my son's school is next on the agenda"

PhilB [WebTeach] says, "I can understand many adminstrators' point of view on student access to chatrooms, though."

Claire [guest] says, "yes, it's a tricky issue"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "till next Sunday"

SusanneN says, "At my unik they do have a very restricitve firewall too, so I hesitate to offer my ideas for our study groups there"

VennyS [:-] grins at PhilB [WebTeach].

DafneG says, "bye, vance"

VanceS [post-presentation] says, "and thanks VERY much, you're champs all"

SusanneN says, "My university, that is"

Claire [guest] says, "bye vance"

This reaction from Teresa, Sept 14, 2002

It was a somewhat 'frustrating' pleasure to have participated in your conference last Sunday, but frustration also has its positive side(s):

You were very patient, Vance, but it was worth it. Yeeesss (!) for persistence!

It seems that the problem had nothing to do with my computer or software, but with Yahoo, as far as I understood from Dafne.
