Halfway-through-training meeting of EVO2017 moderators

on Sunday 6th November 2016 at 14:00 GMT


from the Webheads Blackboard Collaborate room here http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/


The meeting will be streamed as before, and the recording will remain available here after the event,

Streamed live as Learning2gether Episode 350




Here are the instructions if it's your first time there: 


Blackboard Collaborate can only be opened on a machine which has the BbC launcher installed in its programme files.   so you must first download and install the Blackboard Collaborate launcher as explained here:

using Firefox

Using Chrome

using Safari on a Mac (careful - the downloader file is different for Macs)

Here is a set of crowd-sourced tutorials if all else fails



Then, with the BbC launcher installed on your machine 

  • Visit http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/ and follow instructions at the TECH CHECK tab
  •  You will see that BbC downloads a tiny meeting.collab file, in the same way it does every time you actually join a meeting
  •  Double click on this file to open the room,  be patient and say OK to all the warnings it gives you - because it is OK :-)
  • You've done your tech check and all's OK ?

Then at the time of the meeting just put in your name and click "enter now", once again opening the (new each time)  "meeting.collab" file to enter the room


  1. Report to us if you are unable to connect. We can help. 
    You can leave messages in the chatwing chat below (http://chatwing.com/vancestev)

It is also possible (and sometimes easier) to join the meeting from a mobile device - check out "using a mobile device" here 


About the event itself

On Sunday, November 6th, 2016, join us at 1400 UTC for a chat in Bb Collaborate to share our experience of the various platforms, of online moderating, and see what's coming up next.


Vance explained to moderators how they could use the LearningTimes Bb Collaborate Webheads Virtual Office graciously provided for the past decade as a grant to Webheads in Action by the good folks at LearningTimes, 
http://learningtimes.com. The following slides (since expanded over what was shown in the Bb Collaborate session) show how to reserve the room, how to enter the room as a session moderator, how to record the session and make sure the recording is saved on the Elluminate servers, and finally how to find the recording and extract its share link.

Why have we have been having trouble with this?

Google+ Hangout on Air now functions through http://youtube.com/live, as of September 2016

Coordinators are working to adapt to the new ecosystem.

We hope to model for you in this demonstration one way you might conduct your own live sessions.
