Two days ago, David Bell asked me whether I’d like to join him and Allison Miller in a session on “ePortfolios for education and life” the following day. I was intrigued because I’ve known both Allison and David for a few years now, and it’s always good to catch up and discuss portfolios with them be it in person or online.
While I’ve participated in a lot of webinars over the years, it was quite the experience. It was my first time being in the presenter area of a hangout live on air. I had participated in a few as an audience member, but now I was in the hot seat. In contrast to webinars, you don’t really see the rest of the audience, and while they can ask questions, I was missing the regular backchannel that can be challenging to follow when you are presenting but is so useful for sharing additional information amongst all participants.
It was a fun experience thanks to the great company I had and a topic that I like. I also enjoyed David’s easy style of asking questions and moderating the session.
