Blog Post: Zoom as a platform for virtual Knowledge Caf?s

David Gurteen

I think Zoom will most likely replace Skype, Google Hangouts and many of the corporate webinar platforms such as Webex and Adobe Connect over the coming few years. By David Gurteen I mentioned last month that I was experimenting with a potential virtual Knowledge Café platform - Zoom Meetings. Well I am delighted to say that the two experiments I ran clearly demonstrated that Zoom was more than up to the task.

They are doing a combination of virtual classroom training (via WebEx) and self-paced eLearning. Subscribe to the Best of eLearning Learning for updates from this blog and other eLearning blogs I’ll have more coming on this topic, but today someone asked me how to approach is going through an LMS selection because the general feeling was that the existing LMS was too hard for users to use. In this case, it’s customer training around products that the company sells.

You can access a WebEx recording of the presentation here: I agree that access of virtual worlds needs to be as simple as getting into a WebEx session. But it’s amazing that WebEx doesn’t have avatars for participants or any sense of space. virtual world, WebEx type product.

Second Life as a Learning Tool

Tony Karrer

Video embedded below - didn't show in my blog reader. Now that Second Life has audio, there is a really interesting capability to have natural break-outs during online sessions that just never seems to work well in the current batch of tools, e.g., WebEx, LiveMeeting, etc.

Second Life and Learning - Tony O'Driscoll

I'm sure that once you add presence-based audio (meaning you can hear people who are close to you) that WebEx style systems will begin to look more like second life so you can have easier break-out sessions.

Twitter and Webinars

Tony Karrer

So, both the webinar tool (Elluminate, WebEx, Adobe Connect, etc.) I recently complained that even after all these years, tools like Elluminate and WebEx still didn't provide the ability to have people put their pictures and other information on their profiles so you could find out more about the users. The last few online webinars I've attended there's been an interesting issue. Many of the participants are Twitter users who are becoming used to chatting via twitter.

Social Experience

Tony Karrer

Why the heck doesn't each tool – WebEx, Adobe Connect, Elluminate, etc. Heck – on most blogs that show who are recent visitors, they don't show a list of text names. Interesting image from post by Dave White – Eventedness that relates to our social experience with different tools.

You would categorize the space from faceless (WebEx) to 3D/complex (Second Life) and your solution is this new category of approachable 3D. If you could create a survey and have it work seamlessly with Twitter, as a widget on your blog, with Facebook, with your LinkedIn connections, etc., For the past 15 years, I've spent a lot of time working on start-ups both inside and outside the world of eLearning.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger: "Killer Apps" and Virtual Worlds

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Another fascinating topic discussed in our panel was whether people behave better in virtual worlds than on blogs, forums and chat rooms. We all felt that people fight less and their behavior is more civil toward each other in virtual worlds than in forums or blogs, although we cannot quite prove it yet. As with blogging two years ago, guidelines are meant to help people new to virtual worlds feel more comfortable about getting out there and experimenting.
