Nathan Beyerlein interviews moderators of EVO Minecraft MOOC for TEFLexpress

Learning2gether Episode 321: This is the complete video of the entire interview session, starting with the Hangout on Air and ending with the cobbled-together Blab session: On Sunday Feb 28 1400 UTC LEARNING2GETHER hosted Nathan Beyerlein's interviw of three moderators of EVO Minecraft MOOC, Rose Bard, Marijana Smolčec, and Vance Stevens.

Vance Stevens's insight:
Nathan Beyerlein wanted to interview moderators of EVO Minecraft MOOC for TEFLExpress, in HoA, but the HoA crashed when Vance joined on another computer to try and share a Minecraft window from there. When it didn't work and Vance exited the HoA from the second computer, it caused the whole HoA to close and the video of just that 15 min to be posted to YouTube. We couldn't recover the HoA so we retreated to Blab where we continued recording the interview. Vance Camtasia'd the whole thing after the fact into one contiguous video segment, and you can see the results, plus text transcripts, and an audio rendition, here.

with CALL IS Webcasting from TESOL Chicago, 2018

with CALL IS Webcasting from TESOL Chicago, 2018 | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
Learning2gether Episode 389 Vance Stevens was with colleagues on the CALL-IS Webcasting Team from Tuesday, March 27 through Friday March 30 helping the team mount webcasts from the international 2018 TESOL Conference in Chicago. I (Vance) posted two Learning2gether events from the most recent TESOL conference in Chicago in which I myself took part: Learning2gether…
Vance Stevens's insight:
At http://sco.lt/72O1OT, I note that TESOL, Inc. archives its conference recordings behind paywalls; whereas IATEFL freely shares its archives worldwide. However, the CALL Interest Section in TESOL has been webcasting under the radar from TESOL conferences since 2002, and at its 2018 conference, even more openly than before, from its booth in the conference Exhibition Hall. This post provides some background to this and links to video recordings of all presentions webcast from the CALL-IS Technology Fair and from the Electronic Village in the Exhibition Hall at TESOL 2018, Chicago.
