Mindmeister was our tool of choice for the June 5th show.  We had a great group playing together in our virtual playground.  Here is the link to our Making Connections Map.  Go ahead and sign-up for Mindmeister and we will send you an invite to join us. 

Thanks to Lisa Durff for posting the audio for this show.  MC #9 

 I totally botched the audio portion of the show Tuesday night.  My computer crashed at the end of the show and I lost the audio file.  So to compensate I have tried to recap the highlights of the show and share what we learned.  This screencast was created in Wink, a free download.  Leave a comment to let us know how to invite you to join the map.

Screencast

nothing was left out, it was an excellent review.  But the audio and video of the screencast was sketchy and unrecognizable at times.

Sketchy audio and video

You are correct about the sketchy parts - since the playback was ok before the upload, it must be the connectivity with my server.

Screencast

I thought it was very informative. I may have the audio in Pamela....6/5? Should I bother, since you have covered the bases? 

Audio

Thanks for the offer, but I say we just mark this one as another lesson learned about the trials of webcasting.
