This webcast marathon included a pre-show and post-show. Our pre-show included visits from Vance Stevens who updated us on the upcoming Webheads in Action Online Convergence and Ruth Vilmi who discussed her online activities and upcoming presentation as part of the Nordic Voice Conference. Our 'main' show featured discussions of splogging, open source (free) webcasting possibilities, classroom blogging, and the unclear goals of modern education. Our post show was a fascinating discussion between Buthaina, Ruth, and Sus discussing the job threatening obstacles some educators face using online learning, and the cultural barriers that women in some cultures face in participating in the online world.
