Integrating online and face-to-face participation in a community of practice

Jenny Connected

In this sense the online and face-to-face participation is integrated and it has been noted that it has taken us all less than four days to get used to this way of working. Bandwidth has been an issue so that the original idea that we would all be able to be connected via Adobe Connect all the time in small and whole group sessions didn’t work. Is it possible to integrate the learning?

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.

Does it have to be accessible at low bandwidth? Problems like bugs or other technical problems like low bandwidth or spam are always obvious obstacles. Of course there are bandwidth and other technical issues, but all partners within the initiatives of this research are very positive.
