Although there were only a small number of participants, we had a fascinating session. Penny had a couple of questions about the use of the new blackboard collaborate room, so we continued to work on other aspects of the room. Questions related to
  1. the new drop and drag modules and how best to place them, for prime viewing of chat, and whiteboard
  2. application sharing
Everyone was made a moderator and each of the participants shared an application with us. This made for a fascinating session as the following were shared:-
  1. Penny Bentley's  new online site Cloud 9.
  2. @soingirl's class blog  Melody also shared what it was like to  live, teach and learn on the island where she lives in Canada.
  3. Lenka shared some of the learning management system that she works within at a University in Queensland and some of the open source mobile courses that will be available soon for interested people. See Purdue University
Thanks to our wonderful group of paricipants who willingly shared some of the amazing work that they are doing. It made for a great session.
