00:05 - Peggy George
we'll have music next time :-)

00:20 - Peggy George
We're so glad to have all of you with us!

01:01 - Peggy George
we all have some "getting used to" to do :-)

01:29 - Peggy George
Welcome Matt! Great to see you

01:59 - Peggy George
default is everything all scrunched on the left :-) but you can modify anything

02:28 - Peggy George
the drop down menu is very important in every panel you see

02:42 - Peggy George
Hi Paula!

02:49 - @Len_Horn
Hi Paula

03:10 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Hi Peggy and Len.

03:11 - @Len_Horn
Can't see Lorna

03:41 - @Len_Horn
On the white board can't see your directions Lorna

04:10 - Peggy George
if you can't see the whiteboard that is a problem

04:14 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I'm in my classroom preparing for students on Monday.

04:23 - Peggy George
Hi Kim Flack! So glad you could join us :-)

04:32 - @Len_Horn
Hi Kim Flack

04:36 - roxanne clement
wow...personalized space!

04:36 - carol yeager
Hi Sam, great to see you here ...

04:40 - clinds
That's awesome! Love how you can make the chat as big as you want!

04:43 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
HI Kim Flack.

04:50 - Lorie Moffat
ok

04:52 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Hi Roxanne Clement.

04:52 - Kim Flack
Hi!

05:03 - Peggy George
you're going to see some amazing "tricks" you can do with slides from Tammy and Lorie!

05:20 - Peggy George
the new starburst is really cute!! very colorful and bigger

05:25 - @lemoinemb Mary Beth
Is there a way to move the whiteboard over?

05:33 - Peggy George
yes--instructions coming

05:33 - roxanne clement
love how the tools are compact and accessible

05:34 - Matt Huston
Question: are all of the tools enabled for participants by default?

05:41 - Kim Flack
@peggyg can't wait!

05:51 - Londa
I missed the map direction, where's the map

06:06 - Peggy George
no Matt-we have to enable any permissions we want participants to have using global permissions--very easy

06:27 - clinds
I don't know if I missed it but is Elluminate officially done and gone?

06:30 - Lorie Moffat

Hi from New Orleans, LA.

07:20 - roxanne clement
KIM!!!!!!

07:31 - Kim Flack
Good Lorna is back too!

07:31 - Matt Huston
Peggy, by "all of our site is...Bb Connect 11" do you mean LearnCentral or Classroom Live 2.0 or both?

07:49 - carol yeager
Love the cc option!

07:50 - Peggy George
you won't see how people are checking unless you expand your participant window

08:24 - Shayna Burgher
I cant cast my vote, what did I miss?

08:25 - Peggy George
it will get easier once you try a few times :-)

08:26 - roxanne clement
steve used it Tuesday

08:29 - Kim Flack
it is a nice clean lookk

08:32 - Kim Flack
*look

08:34 - Londa
It's because it's my first time!

08:46 - clinds
I'm also wondering if the vRooms in Learn Central are now Blackboard Collaborate...

08:58 - Peggy George
you're doing great finding the way to vote

09:01 - Lorie Moffat
yes, they are

09:08 - Kim Caise
yes i believe the learncentral rooms were converted awhile back

09:18 - roxanne clement
Never miss a Saruday session!

09:25 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
Hi Kim Caise.

09:35 - Peggy George
these questions are meant to give you practice using the polling feature :-)

09:46 - @lemoinemb Mary Beth
Not sure..is this the latest?

09:55 - Peggy George
you'll feel much more comfortable with the platform after today!

10:32 - Peggy George
yes @clinds--the vRooms in LearnCentral are now Blackboard Collaborate v. 11

10:39 - Susie (@shighley)
Sorry. Just got here. Looking for what corresponds to the old wide layout on Elluminate

10:40 - Peggy George
Hooray Lorie!!

10:51 - Susie (@shighley)
Love that place. Didn't want to leave when it closed

10:52 - Peggy George
instructions coming Susie! WElcome!

10:58 - Kim Flack
wow!

11:25 - Susie (@shighley)
I meant when it closed for the day. We didn't want to leave Franklin Institute.

11:30 - Peggy George
we're all newbies to Blackboard Collaborate but it gets easier every time

11:46 - clinds
@Susie - They just showed us how you can click at the top of the chat area and move it and expand it however you want, which I love!

12:05 - Peggy George
much cleaner interface now!

12:15 - Kim Flack
I really like it!!

12:20 - Peggy George
me too Kim!

12:26 - Susie (@shighley)
Only I can't find a good place to put it. Can I move the whiteboard over?

12:44 - roxanne clement
love it

12:51 - Peggy George
you can make the whiteboard smaller and put the chat to the right of it. That's what I do.

13:06 - carol yeager
Love it that ine can move thepanels around for ease of use.

13:14 - Tyler
I pulled the chat room out and put it on the right side of my screen

13:20 - Peggy George
all of the panels can be moved, opened or closed

13:45 - Peggy George
you can also still enlarge the font in the chat room if you want

13:50 - Mary
great if you have more than one monitor

14:06 - Peggy George
love that it's only one click now to run audio setup wizard!

14:45 - Peggy George
I usually keep the audio/video window closed so I can use the space to expand the participant list

15:51 - Peggy George
I like to see the participant list so I know who is using which tools

15:54 - clinds
@Peggy - How did you make the whiteboard smaller? I want to try the chat window on the right.

16:06 - Peggy George
you don't see the tools by your name unless you are actually using them

16:28 - Peggy George
audio setup wizard is exactly the same but just easier to run

16:31 - Tyler
@clinds - grab the bottom right hand corner and make the screen what ever size you want.

17:10 - Peggy George
everything can still be done from the menu bar at the top but there are easier ways to do most things

17:23 - Peggy George
we would love to have all of you create a profile!!

17:38 - Peggy George
once you create your profile it is saved for all future Blackboard Collaborate sessions

18:04 - Peggy George
I keep saying Elluminate too :-) shorter!

18:31 - Peggy George
if you mouse over someone's name in the participant list you can see their profile if they have created one

18:59 - Peggy George
I love it when people add an image to their profile so I can see it right in the participant list :-) New ones coming up right now!!! Thanks!

19:33 - Peggy George
you only see those actions when people are using them. You have chat permissions but won't see that icon unless you are actually typing

20:11 - roxanne clement
I like the personal box with tools connected to it, easier when new people come to a session

20:33 - Peggy George
try to jot down your questions so you can ask them after the presentation is finished--they may cover your question as they go.

supervised chat is exactly the same as before but now it's just labeled

21:38 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
(01) Setting up computers in my classroom.

21:58 - Peggy George
be sure to check the tabs at the bottom of your chat window. If someone has sent you a private chat it will appear there

22:02 - Liz
:)

22:02 - susana
i dont have that line

22:09 - @lemoinemb Mary Beth
($) Doing my finances today!

22:43 - Peggy George
remember moderators see all private chats--that's why it says "supervised"

23:02 - Kristen B (@teachteKBeck)
Wow, I came late and things look very different this week!!:o

23:11 - Peggy George
try any of these features out as we go along--this is a learning session :-)

23:29 - Tyler
Love the new look

23:31 - Kim Flack
B) and we have emoticons! this might be the best ever!

23:33 - @plnaugle(Paula Naugle)
I don't see the tabs she is talking about.

23:42 - susana
i dont have any of those tabs. is that ok?

23:45 - Peggy George
if you see that little white chat bubble in the tab for private chat that means you have a new reply

24:01 - Kim Caise
you will only have those tabs if you have a private message

24:19 - Peggy George
right Kim! you have to send a private chat for the tab to appear

24:43 - roxanne clement
We can increase the font size in chat...YAY

25:00 - Peggy George
yes Roxanne! We always could do that but people didn't really know about it

25:41 - Peggy George
so glad to see some of you trying out the private chat. Much easier to follow a private conversation now because it's not lost in the big chat window

25:43 - roxanne clement
that was me...not knowing!:)

25:45 - carol yeager
How many can be on video at one time?

25:58 - @Len_Horn
I <3 that B) cool emoticon, Kim.

26:02 - Peggy George
At least 6 videos

26:26 - Peggy George
as soon as someone starts talking on video their video comes to the top and is larger

26:36 - Peggy George
this is so cool!!! dissected frog :-)

26:43 - carol yeager
how does one add a web link and have it run in the whiteboard?

26:57 - Peggy George
the whiteboard tool panel can be moved anywhere you want it too!

27:07 - Kim Caise
you have to type it using the http:// before the URL

27:07 - Peggy George
:-) Tammy is an expert with the whiteboard tools!

27:09 - roxanne clement
cool

27:17 - Lorie Moffat
I'll be showing the web tour

28:12 - roxanne clement
are they layered?

28:52 - Peggy George
tons of clip art to select from too--lots of math symbols :-)

29:39 - Peggy George
you can fill in the shapes and make them lighter using the opacity feature

30:24 - Doug Henry
This belongs in MOMA

31:05 - Peggy George
fun!!! looks like a bunch of ants moving around the screen :-)

31:40 - Peggy George
I didn't realize I had to hold down the left click for my pointer hand to show up and people kept saying they couldn't see it. I know now :-)

34:11 - Peggy George
too many moderators moving things is a hoot!

34:23 - Londa
dizzy!

34:23 - anachorete
@mac even scrolling with the pad works #cool

34:52 - Peggy George
those icons for whiteboard, app sharing and web tour make it so easy!!

35:15 - Peggy George
app sharing may take awhile to load for you depending on your bandwidth

35:28 - Larry A
It looks like this works with Microsoft Word - is that right?

35:41 - Peggy George
you can desktop share anything Larry

35:44 - Lorie Moffat
yes, any program you can run

36:05 - Susie (@shighley)
I've had problems grabbing that right corner.

36:15 - roxanne clement
then it resizes the window to fit?

36:39 - Peggy George
you have to get your mouse in the right place to either see a solid line or a corner to stretch it

36:40 - Kim Flack
will you show us how it works to show video?

36:41 - Lorie Moffat
at http://www.learncentral.org

36:46 - Peggy George
yes Roxanne :-)

36:50 - roxanne clement
cool

36:53 - Kim Flack
share streamed video

37:18 - Peggy George
streaming video usually works best with web tour unless you upload it first to multimedia

37:21 - Susie (@shighley)
thanks, Peggy. Neither of those are appearing, but I'll practice

37:38 - Kim Flack
URL?

37:53 - Peggy George
multimedia videos often require more bandwidth and need certain software installed to view them--a little more picky than showing them in web tour

37:53 - Kim Flack
great thank you:)

37:57 - carol yeager
aha.that is what I was looking for! Thanks

37:59 - Lorie Moffat
jsut like Elluminate

38:27 - Peggy George
we almost never use multimedia uploads in our sessions--we use streaming videos via web tour

38:42 - Kim Caise
i am going to go ahead and step on out. great to see everyone.

38:55 - Lorie Moffat
ok, Kim

39:08 - @Len_Horn
Great to see you Kim

39:11 - Peggy George
if you're in app sharing and want to close it and go back to the whiteboard you just click on the whiteboard button

39:33 - Matt Huston
thx peggy - was going to ask that ;)

39:50 - Peggy George
it's very easy with the buttons

39:56 - Susie (@shighley)
I think Peggy's good at reading minds.

40:04 - Peggy George
if it's grayed out you don't have access to that feature

40:06 - Peggy George
:-)

40:38 - Kim Flack
@Susie -- true!

40:39 - Peggy George
that little drop down menu by the url is the way you publish the url to the chat now (instead of the little globe in Elluminate)

41:25 - Peggy George
it is possible for a moderator to give all participants web tour sharing permissions so if you are having a sharing session everyone can access it to add links

41:39 - Matt Huston
so, web tour steps are: select web tour button, type in URL and then...?

41:53 - Peggy George
http://www.virtualhomeschoolgroup.com/ Virtual Home School Group website

41:56 - Lorna Costantini
got it now Lorie

42:04 - Matt Huston
thx Lorie ;)

42:04 - Peggy George
and then hit return Matt

42:09 - Doug Henry
see it

42:10 - Peggy George
mine is loaded now

42:13 - Matt Huston
(it's in ours)

42:17 - Kim Flack
yes

42:22 - roxanne clement
see it but with an error message

42:23 - RetSam
loaded too

42:27 - Mary
shows as separate Firefox window

42:33 - @shamblesguru
It might help to give the pros and cons of "Web Tour vs Application (Browser) Sharing"

42:38 - Matt Huston
Moodle!

42:41 - Peggy George
if it's behind a login we won't see it unless you use app sharing

42:55 - @Len_Horn
As people enter and leave the session there is a announcement, how do we turn that announcement off?

42:55 - RetSam
okay

42:58 - Peggy George
thanks Tammy

43:09 - Peggy George
if you're seeing the login page, click on login as guest

43:12 - Kim Flack
does it still show you as a facilitator/moderator the status for loading for participants?

43:25 - chaouki mkaddem
Is the blackboard collaborate free?

43:25 - Peggy George
yes Kim

43:30 - Kim Flack
very helpful

43:43 - Peggy George
Blackboard Collaborate is free in LearnCentral for Host your Own WEbinars

44:10 - Matt Huston
tried to login as guest but bounces me out -- i think we are following Lorie perhaps?

44:14 - Peggy George
if you want to practice some of these things later you can always use your 3 for free room in LearnCentral. It is now Blackboard Collaborate

44:14 - Doug Henry
Nice Moodle site!

44:34 - Peggy George
yes we are following Lorie now if we logged in as guest

44:36 - Mary
so we can both interact with the window

44:39 - Matt Huston
great resource site!

44:54 - Mary
yes I tried it

45:04 - roxanne clement
can you send us the link in chat?

45:11 - Susie (@shighley)
@len_horn go to preferences>notifications and you can turn off the people entering room

Much better than WizIQ in my opinion. :)

46:06 - chaouki mkaddem
Ok! Thanks

46:12 - Lorie Moffat
I agree, Tammy

46:32 - Lorna Costantini
to stop the notifications Len - go to tools - preferences and notifications

46:46 - Lorna Costantini
on PC

46:51 - clinds
Definitely impressed with this tool. Seems really user-friendl and hopefully can get teachers to use it. Any idea how expensive if a teacher wanted to use with about 20 students?

46:54 - carol yeager
how can we have the use of Blackboard Collaborate?

46:59 - @Len_Horn
where do I get to preferences?

47:08 - Matt Huston
where does a mod click to change global permissions for participants?

47:19 - Lorna Costantini
menu bar at the top

47:23 - @lemoinemb Mary Beth
Love your enthusiasm, Peggy...

47:33 - Lorie Moffat
preferences is in menu in Participants panel

47:42 - Jorge
Thank U for sharing information w/us

47:42 - Tammy Moore
You can get a fee three seater to try out by clicking the "Sign up for a free 3-seater vRoom of Collaborate" in the websiote on screen

47:47 - carol yeager
How can we use this on the iPad????

47:48 - Lorie Moffat
and there, Suzie

47:59 - Londa
I am an administrator at a high school and we have tons of new staff this year. Have some of you used these tools to help orient new staff to school?

48:08 - Tammy Moore
THey are working on mobile technology for Collaboarte :)

48:08 - clinds
@Tammy - How about if we want to use it with a whole class of students? Cost?

48:12 - RetSam
what's the "@" in front of someone's nick mean?

48:13 - carol yeager
thx Tammy for the 3 seater option

48:19 - Tammy Moore
I use it with my classes

48:42 - Tammy Moore
We use the Vclass version which allows multi moderators to have the moderator link

48:42 - Lorna Costantini
the @ symbol is for a twitter ID

48:51 - @shamblesguru
Could you show your desktop ....

48:57 - carol yeager
iPad compatibility is a need for many ... how is this possible?

49:05 - RetSam
thanks Lorna.

49:11 - Lorna Costantini
some people use their twitter id for their user name when they login

49:26 - Matt Huston
Also, @RetSam = "I'm responding to RetSam"

49:26 - Larry A
Can the moderator or instructor see who has participated or answered and who has not answered a poll question or is doing some activity?

49:30 - @Len_Horn
Lorie, I don't see the menu in Participants window

49:35 - Jorge
This app as any other need a lot a practice

49:48 - Lorie Moffat
it's the menu at the right edge

50:02 - Susie (@shighley)
we're seeing edublogger.com

50:06 - Susie (@shighley)
con

50:13 - Kim Flack
we see everyone waving ;)

50:14 - RetSam
lol

50:17 - @lemoinemb Mary Beth
Wish I could have been there this past year

50:33 - Kim Flack
there is a great question peggy about if this works with iPads

50:47 - @Len_Horn
all I see is edit profile :(

50:47 - Londa
were they really there or is that a virtual picture?

51:01 - carol yeager
:(

51:09 - Tammy Moore
THey will be working on mobile apps in the future :)

51:22 - carol yeager
Thx Tammy ... that is a BIG need

51:23 - Larry A
isn't there a converter so you can play flash on Ipads?

51:34 - carol yeager
fpr the mobile participants as well

51:40 - @Len_Horn
Peggy,

51:41 - clinds
Is anyone using this with students? Still wondering what it would cost if you need more participants than a free vRoom allows.

51:43 - carol yeager
no Flash on iPads

51:51 - anachorete
no the movies on ipad are embedded in html5

51:54 - @shamblesguru
I don't think the problem is flash ... but Java

52:00 - @Len_Horn
Please explain how to disable the notification of people entering the room.

52:05 - Peggy George
think you're right @shamblesguru

52:09 - anachorete
but elluminate is a java question #notaflashprob

52:28 - Lorie Moffat
in profile--> audible notifications, Len

52:28 - roxanne clement
yes!

52:29 - carol yeager
I am hoping to use it for a MOOC ... so this is a learn the simple capabilities for presenters and moderators and participants

52:31 - Larry A
Will the old style elluminate be eliminated?

52:59 - @Len_Horn
thank you! :)

53:10 - Matt Huston
I'm slow...possible to ask for app share of Collaborate to show steps to give / change global and ind'l permissions for participants?

53:13 - Peggy George
you can still access the old style elluminate--some people are still using that format

53:16 - Larry A
As an instructor, can I tell which participant has answered or been involved in a project and which ones have not?

53:26 - Peggy George
all of the Reform Symposium was done in Elluminate v. 10

53:27 - @Len_Horn
no icon

53:45 - Peggy George
I turn off almost all of the notifications--especially the audible ones

55:06 - @Len_Horn
Thank you Tammy

55:08 - @shamblesguru
Question: I see that as Moderator there is an option to create breakout rooms ... and move people to them ... can you conirm this is a new feature and you can now go to another room without shutting this one down and logging on from the beginning again.

55:09 - Peggy George
when you view recordings they will open in whatever version was used--Elluminate v. 10 or Blackboard Collaborate v. 11

55:09 - carol yeager
If the istitution now has Elluminate ... what options are in place for Blackboard?

55:39 - Lorie Moffat
I think it varies with different licenses for Elluminate.

55:47 - Liz
Our institution uses Blackboard. Is Collaborate automatically included or is it a separate package?

55:50 - Tammy Moore
YEs, break out rooms and you don't need to close any to opne more

55:56 - Peggy George
http://livebinders.com/edit?id=110653

56:15 - carol yeager
thx Lorrie

56:19 - Lorie Moffat
yw

56:27 - Tammy Moore
I don't think Collaborate is automatic if you have Bb lms

56:47 - nikki
Can we disable the Join-Leave notifications that clutter the Chat?

56:49 - Lorie Moffat
vRooms were first to be converted

56:56 - Lorie Moffat
no, Nikki

58:08 - clinds
Still wondering how expensive this would be. I have a teacher who I think would love to use Blackboard Collaborate to do evening review sessions with 20 or so students.

58:23 - carol yeager
Thsi was very helpful .. thank you all so very much!

58:26 - carol yeager
Great session

58:39 - Lorie Moffat
ty :)

58:43 - Tammy Moore
It needs to be public if you use the free room

58:49 - Matt Huston
time to show via app share how to change global permissions? If no time, no worries!

59:01 - Tammy Moore
I will show that, Matt

59:04 - clinds
Great! Thanks Peggy!

59:26 - Peggy George
only moderators can share global permissions

59:37 - Peggy George
I agree Tammy!

59:48 - carol yeager
how many moderators can one have in a session?

1:00:01 - Peggy George
moderators can give and take away privileges with one click for everyone or for one person ifyou want to

1:00:10 - carol yeager
ok, thx

if someone happened to enter your room and was making inappropriate comments you can remove their chat privileges :-)

1:00:52 - Peggy George
that's how you create breakout rooms too

1:01:19 - Lorie Moffat
or check marks in XP

1:01:35 - Peggy George
hard to be anonymous here! everytime you enter or exit the room everyone sees that in the supervised chat area :-)

1:02:00 - Matt Huston
perfect...thanks for this Tammy

1:02:06 - roxanne clement
sometimes you have to do that with the mic when people forget to turn it off

1:02:09 - Eileen K
Some can't help themselves...

1:02:26 - Peggy George
exactly Roxanne!

1:02:49 - Peggy George
we'll be wrapping up right after this explanation about breakout rooms

1:03:06 - Susie (@shighley)
Thanks so much. Already late for a 1 pm event. I will check out the many resources. I think one day we will even forget what Elluminate was like. This is pretty intuitive.

http://www.learncentral.org/node/168496 Upcoming webinar with Tammy Moore: Collaborate Interactive Slide Design, Aug. 15, 2011 1:00pmEDT/10:00amPDT (will be recorded)

1:03:49 - chaouki mkaddem
What's each room capacity?

1:04:04 - @Len_Horn
the infamous triangle controller

1:04:05 - Peggy George
if you want to learn how to do some really creative things with slides on BC go to Tammy's webinar on Aug. 15

1:04:28 - roxanne clement
You can save the whiteboards in the rooms now too right?

1:04:30 - Peggy George
that is really cool!

1:04:41 - Lorie Moffat
yes, roxanne

1:04:44 - clinds
Can you move students after the rooms are created if you have students that might not work well together?

1:04:47 - roxanne clement
great!

1:04:50 - Peggy George
you can't save a recording from the breakout room--only main room

1:04:51 - Lorie Moffat
yes, clinds

1:04:53 - carol yeager
Is there any app you know of where on can use stickies i the breakout rooms for brainstorming?

1:04:56 - Peggy George
yes @clinds

1:05:07 - Larry A
Can you monitor in general or only when participants are in a room?

1:05:12 - carol yeager
or even an app to use in a ful session for brainstorming

1:05:23 - Peggy George
you can allow students to self select breakout rooms or assign them

1:05:27 - roxanne clement
saving whiteboards is terrific!

1:05:32 - Peggy George
sorry about the mic!! completely forgot!

1:05:44 - Peggy George
wow!

1:05:57 - Lorie Moffat
students can self select, if moderator has set tit to allow participants to move in on there own

1:06:23 - roxanne clement
wow!

1:06:26 - Matt Huston
wow! that's great drag n drop of content from breakout to main!

1:06:30 - Peggy George
you don't have to give permissions every time someone enters the room now which is a huge help!! when you give global permissions for chat everyone will have them as soon as they enter the room

1:06:37 - @shamblesguru
Is audio private in each breakout room

1:06:40 - roxanne clement
that's huge!

1:06:49 - Lorie Moffat
yes, shanbles

1:07:06 - Peggy George
and you can't hear the audio in the main room if you're in a breakout room

1:07:19 - Peggy George
great point Tammy!

1:07:20 - Lorie Moffat
if they are private chatting, moderators see that

1:07:28 - Larry A
can I tell which particular students are participating and which are not?

1:07:30 - roxanne clement
do your moderator settings hold until the next session too?

1:07:35 - clinds
What amazing features!

1:07:35 - Peggy George
Let's officially close the show and then continue with questions

1:07:44 - Lorie Moffat
yse, with the indicators in the participants window

1:07:50 - Kim Flack
this information is fantastic!

1:08:06 - Peggy George
that timer is a huge help if it shows in all rooms

1:08:18 - Peggy George
you can alert students to return to main room in 5 minutes :-)

1:08:19 - Lorie Moffat
announcement

1:08:21 - Kim Flack
very important also to bring everyone back together

1:08:32 - Peggy George
for sure Kim!!

1:08:35 - susana
this has blown my mind! It`s great!

1:08:48 - Lorie Moffat
see hand raising in all rooms, too

1:08:48 - @shamblesguru
Question: I see that as Moderator there is an option to create breakout rooms ... and move people to them ... can you conirm this is a new feature and you can now go to another room without shutting this one down and logging on from the beginning again

1:09:00 - carol yeager
