I had an absolutely great time during my online session on RSS with the Webheads this morning. There were over 20 people from Europe, Asia, South and North America, and the Middle East that participated. The Elluminate Live software over at Learning Times is incredibly easy to use and really powerful for presentations like this. I was able to run some slides, take them on Web surfs, and narrate the whole thing as I went. I know they recorded it, and I’ll see if I can post a link if/when it’s up.
What was really interesting was the talking to an audience without seeing an audience part. It was almost like doing a somewhat interactive podcast. (Which, of course, is still on my list.)
Have I mentioned how much fun doing stuff like this with technology is? Have I???
UPDATE: The link to the presentation is up on the Learning Times site. You’ll need to do some configuring, but it’s all free.

hello Will – so happy to meet you and your enthusiast blog feed speak!
I was one of those happy and curious webheads meeting you in the office at LearningTimes – and yes it was fun indeed! For some reason, we have been seeking for quite a while someone who was able to explain with easy going manners and such a great example how to take advantage of bloglines (or some other RSS reader) I figured this out some time ago myself wit hthis feeling of instant AHA!, after a long period of almost giving up to understand the idea behind RSS feed technology. But until now, I’ve only been collecting a dozen RSS URLs. From now on, I have promised myself to read blogs more systematically by getting the updated briefings in my bloglines page.
Will paste this on my Xanga blog – although I’m very unhappy that Xanga seem to have negelcted RSS and XML feeds so far (which was my reason for not getting the big idea!)
yours, Sus Nyrop in Denmark
