Synchronous meetings online

dear all
We have organised a real time computer conferencing session this week to kick start the course.
Thursday 2 August 12 - 1pm - The Virtual Party! The meeting link is below and also details about how you can join a face-to-face group of party goers. You may also get to meet the alumni from the previous course. This is intended as a meet and greet session where you can get to know some of the others in the course and ask questions about the course. Good jokes welcomed.

Individuals: If you are joining from your own computer, you need to click on the meeting link below; there is no username or password needed. Please make sure your computer has a microphone and speakers to be able to talk and hear while you are in the Elluminate meeting.

Groups: If you wish to join a face-to-face group this has been organised as follows:
Dunedin - D207 - Otago Polytechnic Forth St
Auckland - Room L403 - Manukau Institute of Technology - next to the Learning Technology
Centre on the 4th Floor of L Block.

Thursday 2 August 12 - 1pm - meeting link: open 10 am for 12 midday start.

If this is the first time you will be using Elluminate, you may be prompted to download some software which may take anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes (up to two hours in bad luck cases) depending upon your Internet connection speed. You can pre-configure your system with the required software by going to the support page located at:
