The Idea

At the 2011 Sakai Conference, there was substantial interest in establishing a monthly, live, synchronous, online course (or project site) demonstration by faculty at different Sakai institutions. The intent is to provide examples to interested community members and to highlight the wonderful wealth of resources in our Sakai community! This can be an exciting professional development opportunity for all of us -- and your participation is essential to our collective success.

  • The Goal: Host one presentation per month beginning in September 2011 -- and represent a variety of institution types, disciplines, and countries as we can!

The Requirements

  • Identify a faculty member at your institution who would be willing to demonstrate some aspect of his/her course that works well, has learning impact
  • Is willing to be recorded during the session
  • Can do 10-15 minutes of show & tell online (perhaps screen shots to reduce some of the technical glitches that will inevitably ensue)
  • Will entertain 20-30 minutes of Q&A

The Devilish Details

  • What synchronous web conferencing tool will we use? Should the host institution select?
  • How many people can attend synchronously?
  • Where will the recordings be stored and in what format? Tags? Etc.?
  • What about time zones?
