Good Afternoon! Hope you all are enjoying your Sunday afternoon! I am catching up on all of the details for our web conference. It will be here sooner than we think! Below is a list of links to the training materials that will used for this web conference.

Each student in our class chose a relevant topic to our web conference and then wrote and recorded training material that was posted on youtube. Wow! What an experience. BIG learning curve for me on this assignment. My teens make this look so easy! So if you have a moment and would like to learn more about the practical side of setting up a web conference on BlackBoard Collaborate I am including the links below!

We are getting closer!

As we move closer to the day of our webinar, our class is getting excited to show you what we have been working for this entire semester. I just wanted to talk a little bit about our class and how our class has worked this semester.

This class is called "Practicium in Program Planning and Implementation" and there are a total of ten people in this class. The class is designed to implement program planning and to work together as a team to select a topic and design a web conference using eCommerce technology. Our class meets sychronously online one or two times a month in order to plan the conference. We have designed this web conference from the start and have been meeting within our sub-groups to provide support to one another and to make sure this web conference is smooth and informational. We hope you enjoy it!
