The embedded video and slideshare presentation below were submitted for the OU 'Learning in an Open World' conference (22 -23 June 2010) by Janet Haresnape. Please add any comments or questions here.
This particular presentation has had a number of iterations because of technical issues, which has been a good learning experience for a number of people. For the moment I am adding the presentations but I will come back and add a description of what was done and how.
Comments from Janet "I'd like to make a contribution to this conference. It is a collaborative wiki-based activity I have deleloped for our Evolution course (S366). However, the link to teh wiki with the live activity is currently being used by S366 students, so it will only be available to those with access to the course website."
"Instead I have made my contribution a powerpoint presentation with video clips and sound which plays automatically, and I have uploaded it to slideshare. However, when I try to view it there, none of the video clips or the sound plays."
"My version of Powerpoint is 2003, as installed on my OU laptop. The camera, microphone with which the clips were recorded were all done with borrowed equipment on someone else's computer in the Regional Centre" (logitech quick cam software set up on Windows XP desktop PC with headphones and mouthpiece).
