Let’s get together and exchange ideas live! In order to get an idea of the social media that is used in research, I have set up a session through WiZiQ.
After an intro of about 20 minutes in which I will give a short overview of the big outlines on social media and how it is linked to research, the floor will be completely opened to discuss possible thoughts and questions you might have. These questions can be the basis of discussion threads during this seminar.
The session is planned for Thursday 8 May
12 PM Halifax, Nova Scotia time = ADT;
8 AM Vancouver, British Columbia time = PDT;
5 PM Brussels, Belgium time = CEST;
If you are not sure of your time zone, you can look it up at the World Clock.
You can access the online session here.
WiZiQ is a free tool and allows interactivity, but the free version is less interactive then Elluminate (which is not free). You can talk, use slides, chat and see each other (which we will do).
To participate in this session, you need to register or sign up for WiZiQ.
Once you are registered you can access all the sessions for free, BUT you need to be signed in to be able to open the sessions!
- it is a good idea to surf to the WiZiQ link a couple of minutes before the session actually starts. This allows you to test your audio/video devices.
- Please keep in mind that you need a headset with microphone if you are planning to talk during the session. This enhances the audio quality, open speakers give the microphones a hard time.
- a small side remark: if you have been using audio/video software during the day (f.e. for camtasia or captivate) and you want to link to WiZiQ, sometimes the settings are intertwined and do not function correctly. In that case you will have to log out and log in again.
see you all soon
