We had a fantastic presentation last Friday by the Hypertext and Hypermedia Lab at Carlton University in Ottawa. They gave a really interesting presentation about their project called – Heritages Passages Virtual Museum. They talked about the trials and successes inherent in cross-disciplinary collaborative projects and discussed their experience of challenges of gamifying history. Unfortunately we couldn’t screen capture the whole talk as we have done in the past – but I took an image of Concordia’s side of the audience. I think to date – this was the most successful SKYPE presentation – in terms of attendance. Thank you everyone for coming – and I hope we can continue to have as many people.
I have noticed that we are becoming more and more at ease with this medium of presentation – I saw a lot of people making jokes and noticed that we have become comfortable with each other – chatting and discussing ideas.
I think there are still better ways to improve the communication – Bart, Lynn and I discussed afterwards that we should set up a conference call. So that when SKYPE cuts out – we can still hear everything.
