We had a wonderful session with Michael Coghlan at yahoo messenger today. We did have some technical problems, i.e. audio. Some of us were not able to join the conference despite the efforts from moderators' part and other colleagues to help. However, this was a part of learning. In the session Michael discussed the use of synchronous and asynchronous tools for teaching in different contexts and environments by briefly reviewing background information. During the presentation he got participants involved asking them to talk about their experience and their context. He went beyond the tools we have covered and talked about other communication tools that making an impact on the way of teaching. It was a very socially lively session. Some participants asked questions and gave valuable contributions by using text chat area or mic. For information on participants, chat log, and slides to the presentation, please visit our wiki page. We have recorded the session and will also make it available for those who could not attend or would like to listen to recording. We would love to know your impressions and opinions about the session through your comments on this blog.
