Hello, OLDSMOOC 2013

The intent of OLDSMOOC to the spread massively in real time is optimal because massive open conferences are technically more difficult.

The OLDSMOOC streaming on the Internet was limited to100 people, which indicates, that if the broadcast is to 500Kb, the bandwidth of the access was available to 50 Mbps.

To overcome this technical issue of bandwidth we have available two ways: either through the CDN (like Amazon, Livestream, etc) or by contracting with an ISP to optimize bandwidth.

Until now

Thanks, Ida

The dynamic link to the opening video, solves the problem of those who cannot be in real time to interact with the conference.

Until now

The subject has an onboard technical and pedagogical arising from synchronism required for the conference for more than 100 people.

Until now

I think the YouTube version from Google loaded quite quick but alas the sound vanished.

Still in theory this could help the scale.

1. The YouTube version (hangout) is already a very good solution.

2. The scalability of access to massive conferences is directly related to the bandwidth.

Thanks for the comment, until now
