conferencing scenarios

This leads on from a previous post, and outlines a few ideas from the team with respect to conference tools. The idea is not to purchase another solution but use our current ones more effectively. This will involve better signposting for staff about the options. For instance;

Instructor Controlled

Large scale live broadcast (to other sites and people, where the audience are relatively passive, tend to watch, listen and questions would be managed via IM / text back channel – the presenter reads the questions and answers it) >>> e-stream

Instructor Controlled

Small scale, groups managed via the VLE – Blackboard Virtual Classroom / Chat – this will give options for more involvement by the participants with integration of polls etc., >>> WOLSEY (need to open the ports)

Participant Controlled

tends to be 1-2-1 or 1-2-few, more about group work, support etc., lots more video, sharing desktop etc., >>> SKYPE
