3039Re: Recording breakout rooms in Adobe Connect
- Mar 5, 2012Hi Paul and other webinar moderators!
It looks like the only way to do this is to stop recording the main room
when breakouts begin and then choose one of the rooms to record. I guess
I can ask one small group of trainees to agree to have their breakout
recorded and analyse the data from that room.
Has anyone else tried this?
For now, the transcript from the main room - taken from immediately
after the breakout discussions, when we reconvened - should suffice for
my pilot study research. It yields some useful conclusions for anyone
moderating a webinar:
* having a "procedural" introductory session - where the moderator
demonstrates how to use Connect - can ease interaction, e.g. raising
hands to manage turn-taking, asking for the microphone, or remembering
to mute and un-mute the microphone
* sharing the agenda before and during the session is important as it
provides a focus for discussion
* having an asynchronous forum discussion prior to the session and
assigning pre-reading can promote deeper engagement and reflection - and
also provides a focus for synchronous discussion
* having an assistant moderator is vital, not only in the event of
unseen technical problems but also to manage interaction
* breakout rooms help ensure more equal participation and involve
shyer participants, especially in groups of more than 6-8
* breakout rooms encourage peer-learning of both procedural and
* audio and video increase social presence and are experienced as
* polling is a useful tool to involve participants between different
stages and then stimulate discussion
* "notes" and the whiteboard can both be used as visual aids to help
participants follow each other's presentations
* follow-up discussions in a forum, together with an archived
recording of the session, can promote further reflection
I felt that our expertly-run webinar - not run by me, I hasten to add -
led to a far more intense exchange of ideas in a much shorter period of
time than a purely forum-based discussion. Using a collaborative,
learner-centred approach, it ensured everyone's ideas were heard and
discussed. It also gave participants opportunities for deeper
reflection, during and after the session.
I'd be really interested to hear from anyone else in the LTSIG who uses
webinars for teacher development - or who has carried out research in
this area. I hope to share my own pilot study with you soon.
