Hi again Heike,

I got kicked out of my break-out room. Not sure why and don't know how to get back in (only have the link to the full session). I was with Julian and Kirstey.

Can you please help? Thanks.

Hi Heike,

Not at all! These are changing times and although my classroom is considered "substantial separate" and organized around student individual IEP needs, I still must submit portfolios for my 8th and 10th graders that are baaed on the Massachusetts standards which of course are STEM subjects. So, you might think of it as more fundamentally applied academics with a dash of life skills and a good measure of technology. I use my smart board extensively and my students are very engaged by the many multimedia platforms I discover for them to use to access the internet and the wealth of knowledge available for all. We glog, blog, communicate, collaborate online and create wikis just like everyone else as I work very hard to teach 21st century skills so my students are just as prepared as their general ed counterparts to participate in a global workforce. This year we will be doing even more utilizing technology and project based learning. The more web 2.0 tools I can teach them, the more successful they will be when it is their turn to enter the job market. Best Regards, Suzan

Am not suggesting you change what you do ... just make it clearer to subscribers about the conditions of use.

If it is working for you then stay with it ... if it is not broken then don't fix it ... or if I'm the only hiccup then stay with the status quo.

If I was to have a preference for hosting recordings it would be to throw them all on YouTube ... have your own channel (which I suspect you probably already have) that is where the largest community is ... with comprehensive descriptions and hastags then non-attendees may well find them more easily.

Youtube provides security and peace of mind and is free ... it enables sharing in several ways ... I cannot see if you allow embedding of videos by others ... I'd highly recommend it if you don't ... it's all about the sharing as you already know.

One problem to this is that a number of countries block YouTube ... including China at the moment ... some schools are reluctant to use VPNs to get around those blocks even though they technically can.

Mind you ... some of those same countries also block Ning ....

If members of VRT are not allowed to Blog in 'My Page' then it might be worthwhile either switching off that functionality or stating the conditions of use on the front page ... to clarify the terms of membership.
