know what determines when video changes?

Dr. Nellie Deutsch Muller: I don't think so, Elena, but it's something

SUNY Learning Network (SLN)

Dr. Nellie Deutsch Muller: I'm here to have fun.

Elena Garofoli: hey Sanford can you mute your mic?

Rob Darrow: "Meaningful" is a personal choice I think ... but if it is

not meaningful, people stop for sure.

Benjamin Stewart: It's more about the personal interaction and not the

total number of participans.

Helaine Marshall: SUNY Learning Network

Benjamin Stewart: I agree.

Elena Garofoli: but the problem is that many faculty I know do not hold

that perspective

Meebo Chat


Thanks for uploading our hangout (my first!).  I also was able to get a recording of our meeting, although I did come in a bit late.  I'm happy to report that for the first time, I was able to record my desktop (using Tibesti) and participate in a live video/voice chat with not audio issues...and I'm running Linux (i.e., Linux Mint 11) to boot!  I've tried on Elluminate, WizIQ, UStream, LiveStream, you name it.

Anyway, enjoyed the session and it was great to meet live many of those I follow online.
