Yong C Lee, recipe the organizer of the weekly Social Media Education Chat on twitter has invited me today to talk about my Katho New Media class. Since it’s only a couple of days since the course resumed and the official course evaluation was not yet sent to the students, price I was honored by such an invitation. To bring in something new and make the chat more dynamic, Yong C Lee and I connected via TokBox and shared the URL of our chat on Twitter.
Unfortunately, our connection was really poor and our video call was constantly dropped. This makes me think that using TokBox for cross-Atlantic conversations has more technical challenges than when utilizing it from within the same continent. Nevertheless, our connection, even brief, emphasized once again TokBox’s versatility.
The questions I received were about the differences I make between new media and social media, my approach of the subjects during class, the students’ assignments, their response to the course.
I thank again SMCEDU for having me as their guest today! It feels great to know that what I do with this course is perceived as inspiring and ground-breaking.
