Conference2.0 : You are involved in a major conference on leadership and want to use social media during the conference as a kind of "back channel". This is a blogpost written for a half-day workshop for facilitators with Sibrenne Wagenaar.

Collecting insights

Viv Mcwaters

As well as the pre-planned sessions, and the open space offerings, the one-on-one and small group conversations, and the serendipitous moments, there was the Twitter and Facebook back channel, photos being posted on Flickr, videos being made, drawings made, and people blogging. There was a lot happening at the Applied Improvisation Network Conference in San Francisco.

Virtual Team Intelligence - webcast now posted

Endless Knots

" I particularly enjoyed this event because Tom posed questions I'm not normally asked -- and because we used a new audio conferencing service that is very cleverly designed, allowing the presenters to do quick polls, see who's listening, and chat in a back-channel all effortlessly. If I sound too much like a crazy person, come back in a week or so and it will be fixed, Tom tells me.

In these course there isn’t a lot of time for students to get to know each other, but as a tutor, having done quite a bit of ‘back channelling’ and being able to see the student log in statistics, its fairly easy to create groups made up of a mix of very active participants and lurkers – so that these student characteristics are evenly distributed across groups.

Flipchart or Twitter the best tool for trainers?

Joitske Hulsebosch

This wiki Beth Kanter are already some ideas such as using Google Forms for evaluations, Delicious for an online small library, Wiki as a central place for a training group, and Twitter integration as a back channel. Flipchart- the most important tool for trainers?

Cantilever out from the known

Two people met on TokBox beforehand and found that they had some audio feedback problems, so we decided to use the CPsquare phone bridge for the session’s audio channel. In particular it’s helpful to have a back-channel, whether email or a Skype chat.

Twemes.com vs. Search.twitter.com

Learning Alliances

Conference in Las Vegas used it to share resources and for back-channel chatting during the conference: [link]. It’s really great when special-purpose websites are mashed together. The effect is multiplicative. For example, Twemes.com , although it has a really ugly pattern for a background, is elegant and simple and combines: “Tweets&# from twitter.com that have a particular hashtag. Photos from flickr.com that have the same hashtag.

Online Facilitation, Twitter, Backchannel and Keynotes

Nancy White

So inspired by Cliff Atkinson’s book “ The Back Channel ,&# I decided to integrate a Twitter tool into the slides and thus into the body of the talk, consciously breaking in and out of the audience. Then I did a little hand raising poll to see how people felt about the concept of integrating a back channel into a face to face presentation to surface that yes, many of us have mixed feelings.

Both the public discussion and the back-channel is filled with all kinds of little efforts, arrangements and negotiations to make sure that everyone has the books in hand on time. CPsquare is having a book club event, where everyone is invited to read a book about communities of practice together. Sounds simple enough, right?

Open courses in January 2011

Jenny Connected

Well – I have to say – not very publicly – although I do have a few people with whom I feel very connected and with whom I have some deep ‘back-channel’ conversations/discussions (which have now resulted in 4 research papers/projects). The net seems awash with open courses at the moment. Three have captured my attention are: Learning and Knowledge Analytics (LAK11). Connectivism and Connective Knowledge 2011 (CCK11). Digital Storytelling (ds106).

When not to do a PhD?

Jenny Connected

At first I wasn’t accepted – they had received twice as many applications as they had places for and – I discovered through some back channels – they felt that I wasn’t the right fit for the cohort they were selecting. I came across Leigh Blackall’s blog post today – How and Why I’ll do a PhD – via Twitter – maybe Twitter does have some benefits after all. This post has intrigued me as I have gone through the ‘should I/shouldn’t I’ do a PhD thinking myself.

Micro-blogging: Friend or Foe For Unified Communications

Collaborative Thinking

While somewhat different than collaborative workspaces (which are persistant and often document centric), the notion that we can/should communicate in spaces versus channels (ala e-mail and instant messaging) is an intriguing trend and worth exploring. Historically, the industry has long lamented the use of communication channels for collaboration. Hashtags could be generated to create back-channels for real-time video or web conferencing sessions, online classes, web events.

Engaging learners with technology

Jenny Connected

I think it is possible for tutors to take a back seat once the course has become established but not at the beginning! How do you ensure that learners engage with the technology? This is the second question from my list and my immediate response is similar to my initial thoughts about the last question. My primary concern, as a teacher, is to engage learners with learning. Technology is only a tool – a means to an end.

Back channel chat to engage more than audio channels. Heike Phipps doesn’t sit back and let the five bad things happen.

Persistent Group Chat in Office Communications Server R2

Collaborative Thinking

The concept of chat rooms is not new (you can go back to IRC, AOL, etc). Could these types of chat rooms compliment Live Meeting as a better back-channel? In August, 2007 Microsoft announced its intent to acquire Parlano. Parlano's leading product, MindAllign, delivered "persistent group chat". After the acquisition was completed, Microsoft has kept quiet on exactly how it would adapt Parlano's technology and deliver it as part of Office Communications Server (OCS).

They offer the back channel for what is really going on and who to interact with. This is brining back early days of knowledge management when it was all fresh. I attended the Mike Gotta session on Enterprise Social Networking at the Boston Enterprise 2.0 conference. I have been following Mike’s Collaborative Thinking blog for some time as I was pleased to be able to see him in person for the first time to hear him talk about adoption issues.

Engineers without Fears

A conversation I had with two participants raised the issue about the back channel. So last week was a week of events. There was the online communities gig* with Mark Pollard , Christy McCarthy, Angela Beesley & a crowd of participants. Thanks again to the Wesley Mission for their help. It was pretty darned good. If you didn't go, find someone who did & then ask them about it. I also started teaching @ UTS. More on that in a few weeks.

If they do want to take a specific focus, then be sure that you have set up cross-linkages to the other community sites, and are referring people back and forth as needed. ” Back channelling A personal phone call (or a meeting) is a good way to connect one-on-one to find out people’s concerns or to hear what might be in the way of participation.
