Sun Nov 5 1400 UTC 2nd live event in EVO2018 Moderator Training in WizIQ


The problem with the stream has been corrected and the post with links to the WizIQ recording, embed of a YouTube version of that, plus WizIQ and Chatwing transcripts, is available at 



Sorry about the stream. There are many balls to juggle with encoding your stream. With Bb Collaborate, I am able to enter the room beforehand and test through using a live setup that I am getting both system sound and mic sound out the other end well before the event starts. With practice you learn that this is what you have to do, but testing reminds you, when you don't get what you expect, that if it's not working, oh yeah, I need my mic input at this end. 


With WizIQ I could not get a live stream at the beginning. There is an option to test system sound, but when I clicked on that, the system took me to WizIQ, had me log on, and in the end, with time ticking away, I was not able to find any means of testing my system sound. If I could have got a sound check I would have seen that my mic was not working, but as it was I could only test that I could select the correct window to stream, and I played system sound as part of the test. So when the WizIQ started at the exact time it was scheduled to go live, there was no more time for testing, and it turned out I had not indeed configured my mic sound for the stream. Too late at that point. Here's what came out the other end, https://youtu.be/cxULW0SPPxE. -  Vance


So unfortunately, people in the stream did not hear anything Vance said, and the recording is of what the stream sounded like. However, the WizIQ recording is fine.



Chat transcripts can be viewed here




WizIQ live online class hosted by Nellie Deutsch

The recording of the live online class on WizIQ is automatically recorded and processed as an MP4 file. You can edit the MP4 file using Screencast-o-matic (free) or Camtasia (paid). I edited the recording (MP4 file) using Camtasia although Screencast-o-matic has more features and is free.

What should you do?

Join the room at http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org



This is a good option for holding your own EVO events; 

BbC (Blackboard Collaborate) should be able to accommodate all who try to connect.

So it's worthwhile to try and get it working

Then you can explain to others how you did it (that's what moderators do :-)



In preparation


Install the Blackboard Collaborate plugin and get connected

  1. Visit http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/ 
  2. follow instructions at the TECH CHECK tab
    direct link here http://webheads.learningtimesevents.org/tech-check/
  3. At the HOME tab log in and ENTER NOW
  4. Report to us if you are unable to connect. We can help. 
    You can leave messages here on any day, at any time: http://chatwing.com/vancestev 


If you can't open the collab file that should launch the program

  1. right click on the collab file
  2. select open with
  3. and try to open it with the Bb Collaborate exe file


On a PC, the Bb Collaborate exe LAUNCH file can usually be found down this path

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Programs\Blackboard\Blackboard Collaborate Launcher\

Where YourUserName is the user name you use to log on to your computer


For those still having problems with this consult the tutorial here



And especially this video created by EVOMC co-moderator Vance explaining how to brute force your BbC into cooperating with your recalcitrant .collab files
