This is an open BigBlueButton landing page, so please keep this within the iMoot community.

That's great news Fred, thankyou.  We met yesterday and enjoyed re-connecting with some iMooters. After chatting with Karri, how about  we meet regularly on the first Wednesday  of the month (June 4th)

  •  New York (U.S.A. - New York) 9:00:00 AM EDT UTC-4 hours 
  •  Sydney (Australia - New South Wales)  11:00:00 PM AEST UTC+10 hours 
  • London (United Kingdom - England) 2:00:00 PM BST UTC+1 hour 
  •  Corresponding UTC (GMT)  at 13:00:00 

 Proposed agenda ( flexible): 

(Karri and Nat are happy to co-host the first session)

  •  5 minutes - Greetings 
  • 15 minutes - Show and Tell us your Moodling successes. Screen sharing encouraged. Hi-fives all around for our achievements. 
  • 30 minutes - Peer advice. A popular event at iMoot2014 "On Your Case - Peer Advice For Your Moodle Dilemmas" participants are invited to propose their cases for the peer advice process (the focus should be on psychological, social, methodolocial or pedagogical issues rather than technical ones).
  • 10 minutes + Chat time
We could also do another session on the third Wednesday of the month  12 hours earlier than the times mentioned above to cater for different time zones. (Sydney time Wed 11 am)

How do those times suit you all?

Hi Nat

Yes, this works great. Karrie and I had a Skype Chat this morning and she filled me on what you were doing - thanks to you 2 for taking the lead and moving this forward

Let me know what you think and I can start pushing out the message over Twitter/Linkedin, etc

In the Linkedin imoot group I have started a thread as well - http://www.linkedin.com/groupAnswers?viewQuestionAndAnswers=&discussionID=5874214077353439234&gid=3710745&commentID=5875423182323728384&trk=view_disc&fromEmail=&ut=2_gErMWXL5gCg1

Hi Frank,

That is the BBB room we will be using. I wanted to check  about who can access the room, as publishing the passwords on Social Media is risky. What do you think Vinny and Fred?

Fred, did you mean that moderators password is 'mimoot' 

and viewer password is 'student'

Natalie

Yes Natalie, that room that Fred set up is public, so anyone with the link / pwd could enter.

As I posted a little while back, Pukunui / Blindside Networks are happy to continue to support the iMoot site so I could set up a course on the site here with a BBB room. The other advantage of keeping it in one place would mean you could use all the Moodle tools on the course too. What do people think?

Keep it here were the iMoot community exists and has legitimate access :)

Plus, could be a means of discussing next years iMoot with everybody.

Hey Vinny Yes, perfect sense to keep the mini imoots enclosed here as we move towards the imoot 2015 so that we can capture the lessons learned, etc Also, I am happy to provide additional BBB support for the sessions when possible - so if Ok you can add me as a teacher in the Moodle course and a moderator to the BBB room cheers frank
