New emerging practices for trainers and facilitators

Another recent experience is that I was skyped into a training in Cambodja for a session about online advocacy. It was my second time of being skyped into a session, the first time it felt like talking to a wall, but this time I even had the feeling I had some contact with the group.

It’s always good to hear current case studies, learn about adoption approaches, and how to make IBM Connections work in organizational life. What if you would have the means to re-define a new way of working with your fellow colleagues and peers through that very same adaptation to become a successful Socially Integrated Enterprise? As you may know, I’m heading to Europe at the end of next week for a two week workshop tour.

Academic BEtreat – the technical challenges

Jenny Connected

One of the principles of these BEtreats is that online and face-to-face participants should be fully integrated, so for the most part the online people are projected into the face-to-face room through video on Adobe Connect – where presentations can also be shared. However, bandwidth issues make it difficult to use the audio connection in Adobe Connect, so we also connect via Skype – but this also keeps breaking up.

State of the Modern Meeting—from Blue Jeans

Michael Sampson - Currents

Conferencing Is Converging: Meeting owners are tiring of having to decide in advance whether a meeting will be an audio conference, video conference, or web conference, and are instead choosing converged conferencing solutions like Blue Jeans that integrate all of the above. Other findings in the report note the reduced use of Skype, the importance of mobile device support, and the timing of the meeting.

Collaborative Thinking: Peter Saint-Andre on Presence

Collaborative Thinking

I have no qualm with SIP at all but remain convinced that SIMPLE is fundamentally flawed, is being used by vendor to advance their own agendas, and should not the one-basket-for-all-eggs direction pursued by the industry when it comes to approaching "presence" in a broader sense.

Conversations With a Wonderful Client

Full Circle Associates

One fundamental lesson is that as a facilitator, I need to have a diverse range of approaches, I must understand why I choose any one at any one time, and that there is potency in how we sequence and combine ways of engaging and interacting. Sometimes you just get lucky.

Microsoft's Unified Communications Predictions

Collaborative Thinking

I would add an open integration and interoperability framework - a UC platform should not equate to "single vendor". The idea of migrate at your own pace actually makes IBM's approach with its Sametime Unified Telephony approach suddenly look pretty good. UC will increasingly span across the PC, browser, and mobile phone for truly integrated voice calling, email, IM, conferencing and presence on the go.

How to get the Moodle motor started?

I collaborate, e-collaborate, we collaborate

Mainly because we find it wasn’t very easy to integrate an online platform in the broader learning process. How to integrate an online environment in the design of a f2f learning trajectory? The approach to action learning we adopt assumes that the participants remain responsible for their own learning and for developing answers to their own organisational questions in between sessions.

I collaborate, e-collaborate, we collaborate

How did people start looking for the right tool, how did they approach and convince others and how are they planning for the future? They are on the search for the benefits e-collaboration can bring and how they can best approach and implement this. A tool or the process as a starting point E-collaboration is approached from different angles: people can start with an e-tool and experiment with that. This approach is not recommended in the literature.

It also includes the virtual objects – the services that we provide each other, the money we exchange, our voices talking to one another over Skype, and every other intangible thing.
