Two phones video conferencingOn the call were Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Diane Hackabay.  We’re now several weeks into social distancing and working from home.  Many of our meetings have moved into online video platforms.  In addition, professional conferences are moving online.  In this lively conversation, we discussed and ranted about online conferences and online meetings. We talked about what we hope these events might be in the future, as well as our frustration with some events that are occurring today.  We have a vision for the perfect platform and hope a company is paying attention and will develop it.

This was a fun conversation and we will do it again in two weeks (May 7, 9 p.m. ET).

Vintage TypewriterOn the call were Tom Haymes, Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Laura Fothergill (in chat), and Maurice Coleman.  Note that Tom has some tech problems at the start, but we got it straightened out, which led to an interesting conversation about digital learning platforms for live classes (e.g., Zoom, WebEx, Shindig, Canvas,Big Blue Button).  We then pivoted and talked about Discovering Digital Humanity, which Tom wrote.  It was lively!

Our next show will be on April 23, 9 p.m. ET.
