Amanda Stone Presents on Hoover City School’s Wikispaces Private Label

Join us for our March Education Webinar on March 4th at 5pm PST. You’ll learn how to begin an educational wiki in your classroom, create accounts for your students, and monitor their activity on your wiki.

Amanda Stone, a technology coach for the K-5 schools in Alabama’s Hoover City School District will be our guest speaker. She has been using Wikispaces for several years and will be presenting examples of how educators in her district have used their classroom wikis. You’ll also hear from her about the features she and her colleagues have found useful in creating active and vibrant wikis in their district.

Whether you are an educator who is just beginning their classroom wiki or someone who is looking to bring a Wikispaces Private Label to your school, join us in our Elluminate room for the event. You can register here.

Update: Thank you again to Amanda Stone and Suzan Brandt for presenting on their primary and secondary schools’ wikis at the March Education Webinar. We also want to thank Elluminate for giving us a room to host the event in. If you missed the webinar, you can view a recording here. Enjoy and don’t forget to keep an eye out for future webinars.

    In Sydney, the time would be 12pm on March 5th. If you are in a different time zone, you can check http://timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?year=2009&month=3&day=5&hour=1&min=0&sec=0/ for the event’s time where you are.

    Sarah,
    I watched the Webinar Wednesday night and loved all the great wiki examples. I want to show my English dept the webinar during a staff meeting next week, but when I clicked on the link in the blog post it opens elluminate but then says it can’t open the url. Can you help me troubleshoot?

    Hi Lisa,

    If you go to the recording’s url at https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/jwsdetect/playback.jnlp?psid=2009-03-04.1329.D.CA090BE1CFC3C94CF7321D6A717393.vcr you should download a Java file on to your computer. Once it downloads, you can click on it to open it and watch the session. If you have any difficulties, it might be that Java is not enabled on your computer. For troubleshooting, go to Elluminate’s support page at http://www.elluminate.com/support/ . Let me know if you still have problems.

    Best,

    I watched the Webinar last month and did not have any problems. I wanted to view it again, and now I cannot. Not sure what the problem is. I clicked the recording link above and tried the troubleshooting link. It said my computer was ready for Java. Each time the screen opens up but it does not play. Any suggestions?

    Jennifer,

    When you click on the link to the recording at https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/jwsdetect/playback.jnlp?psid=2009-03-04.1329.D.CA090BE1CFC3C94CF7321D6A717393.vcr , a java file should download onto your computer.

    It would be called something like play.jnlp . What happens when you click on that file to open it?

    Best,
    Sarah
