I have just finished the presentation/session at the online conference imoot.
The below are the slides that I used in delivering the session that included some crowdsourced brainstorming, graphic interaction and singing.
The session started with crowdsourcing a list of possible features for virtual classrooms, possible integration options that could/should be available and then finished with a list of products people knew. After this I went through a short assessment of the plugins that were available to integrate with Moodle for some of the platforms.Virtual Classrooms & Moodle (3910 downloads)
These were screenshots of the 2 starting slides that attendees helped create:
Thanks for those who came along to the two sessions, and thanks to the organisers of the imoot
For those interested, I had reviewed the usage of the integration plugins before so will link below. These reviews assess the plugin, not the web conferencing software itself. If you would like to get a specific one reviewed, and can get me access to a demo server to test, please let me know!
