Using OU Live
If you are based on campus please join us for this informal, face-to-face session, have a cup of coffee/tea (with biscuits!) and contribute to the discussion. This event will be broadcast live online for every one to watch and will be recorded for replay.
Abstract: This session will provide an update on the progress made in the first part of this year after undertaking adoption of Blackboard Collaborate, to eventually replace Elluminate. In line with previous briefings, reference will be made to the standard overview available via http://goo.gl/3NtHV with more emphasis on the immediate next steps for piloting, following successful staff training, familiarisation and trials. In addition to this, a few tips and tricks from recent training will be shown through live demos, following good response from regional and national staff development sessions. Colleagues will also get an opportunity to ask questions surgery-style as required on the day.
All staff are asked to note that project information continues to be updated via http://intranet.open.ac.uk/learning-systems and the staff-only area is available via http://learn3.open.ac.uk/site/OU-Live
