Another way is to go to the virtual world.  In the "Second life" you can also watch and listen,  you can also  move around and comment to the comment walls (Etherpad) There you can also discuss with other listeners. 


The third option is to go to the realXtend 3D world. (I recommend) There can be only 30 people at once.  All discussions are connected. There you can also watch slides over again. There you will hear the sound of the presentations (Adobe Connect) and the slideshow.

Is something familiar happening in that very same room than some years ago when Sometu established?

Kommentoinut Hróbjartur Árnason 24. marraskuu 2011 15:51

Thanks for an interesting Seminar on Tuesday. I really enjoyed all the interesting presentations, and our discussions. I look forward to following the discussion of Gaming and Gaming theory in the future.

I put the progarm on the DISTANS Wiki, and hope you will help us add material as soon as the photos, recordings and links to the presentations are ready :)

Kommentoinut Mauri Laakso 24. marraskuu 2011 15:53

Oh yes, we will as soon as possible. Would it be possible to get a short (or long if you like) blog entry of distance learning?

Kommentoinut Hróbjartur Árnason 24. marraskuu 2011 16:02

OK, will do that soon ;-)
