The EDUC 190 (Computers in Education) classes of the University of the Philippines Diliman College of Education will be holding their 1st EDUC190 Webinar Series this 1st semester 2012-2013! The online seminars (or webinars) are FREE and these will run from September 26 to October 4, 2012 depending on the schedule. The webinars will be organized by undergraduates mostly composed of education students and sports science students. This online event is FREE for everyone but slots are limited and there are no reservations due to the limitation of the webinar platform.
The topics range from the following: TwittEd, Online Libraries, Educational Virtual Trips, Classroom Teaching via Role-Playing Games, Mobile Apps, Tech in Music, Pinterest, Tech in English, GMail Makeover, Open Source Software for Education, Google Apps, Presentation Software Alternatives, Tech in Language Education, Podcasts in Education, Online Dietary Tools, or simply, topics in the realm of Educational Technology.
Presenters will be coming primarily from the classes along with possible guest speakers from different organizations. The schedules of the webinars will be provided through 2 publicly viewable Google Spreadsheets (one for the EDUC190 WF1 class and another for the EDUC190 WF2 class). The webinar details (e.g. presenters’ names, webinar links) are posted on the spreadsheets.
The organizers will mostly be using the Blackboard Collaborate (formerly known as Elluminate Live!). If you plan to join and particiate in the event, kindly check if your computer meets the following recommended Elluminate Live! System Requirements. It is recommended that you click the webinar link 15-30 minutes before the specific webinar so that you will have time to troubleshoot if ever you get to encounter technical problems. When you click a webinar link, a small Java file (JNLP) download will be sent to your computer. Just accept it, open it using your Java Runtime Environment and then a new window will appear for the presentation room. It is also recommended that you are using a stable Internet connection that does not make use of filters and proxy servers.
