Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-07-29 16:37
I have added the webcast academy group to my skype contacts, but is there a way for me to individuals from the group as well? I was looking for someone to try a skype call with but don't have names of contacts to try to call. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it. I am robin.ellis1 on skype

Success at Last!

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-07-29 16:17

Such struggles with recording a Skype call.  Spent hours yesterday with Maria, Alice, Durff, and Jeff all trying to help.  Thank you all.  Then my dear husband, my technical support, worked until 2AM  to get things working.  Got it going but nothing really sounded right.

Recorded Telephony Call - Smooth Ride

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-07-29 12:53
I thoroughly enjoyed this task.  I tried to use VAC and Audacity first, having some success calling the Skype Test Call Lady (she's so patient and "there" if no one else is online).  Unfortunately her voice was not recording loud enough and I could not figure out how to make her louder.  My USB Mic is not due in the country until 5 August so I've been using a Mic and Headset but with two separate jacks.  Not entirely sure if that's the problem.  I had already downloaded powergramo

My Introduction

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-07-29 11:08
I had this up earlier, just tried to post it again after realizing everyone else had it in Introductions and I added it as a blog.  Don't know where it ended up the first time so here I go again.  I do love technology, I do love technology, I do, I do, I do love technology.

Frustration Abounds!

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-07-29 10:56

I spent four hours yesterday trying to get my computer to record sounds not going through my mic.  Finally gave up and went to bed.  My husband, who had been trying with me, kept at it and, at around 2 AM, woke me to tell me he was successful.  Now here I sit at 7 in the morning, waiting for him to wake up and tell me what he did.  I remember something about my not turning on the VAC and about using a different repeater but can't duplicate it myself.

Assignment 1B: Recording and editing a telephony call - Best

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-07-29 03:17
Okay, I ran this through a great program called Levelator. This evens out volume levels. I think you can hear the difference.

Assignment 1B: Recording and editing a telephony call - Better

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-07-29 03:13

Okay, when you have audio like on my last file, you try to locate the source, so I asked someone else if they would chat with me in Skype so I could record it. Sharon Peters pitched in. Still you can hear some significant volume issues. The weird background noise is gone though.

This is done in Audacity on a PC.

Skype Conference How-to

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-07-28 22:49

Did this screencast: http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=8d315555d5b3eb0dd45b

On how to make a conference call. Had to redo audio (which made it better) because the telephony set up for Audacity did not work for CamStudio.

In my audio introduction it says I used a mac with garageband to record which I did but then had to download audacity and cover with it in order to post : )

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-07-28 22:28

Finally got my introduction posted. I must say I was somewhat overwhelmed after the first meeting the other night and hope I can keep up. I am on EDT in PA, work in a K-12 district as a year round employee and summer is very busy for me at work. I also have to get all software I am downloading onto my machine approved ahead of time which I have to plan for. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can and think this will be a great group of people to work with and learn from!

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-07-28 18:19

Thank you Lee Baber for posting info in the forum (38 weeks ago) the screencast for setting up Nicecast for the Mac.

I had one minor issue with the mic settings but then I was "Good to Go."


This is a short recording I made with Lisa Durff. Thank you Lisa. As always, you are so supportive.

A Lurking Learner

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-07-28 15:50

I am glad to participate in WCA's 2.2. class.  I have a hard time with schedules and structure.  I signed up for the first class but drifted alway without completing the assignments as suggested.

One of my goals for this summer was to improve my web presence and contribute more to the EdTechTalk community.  I have started webcasting on my own with ETTK12.  This post, http://www.webcastacademy.net/node/945,  is my application for that webcast.
