Forum OpenACS Q&A: OpenACS Webinars

Posted by Tracy Adams on
For the next 3 Sunday afternoons, I'll be giving OpenACS webinars. These will cover the topics I'm going to be presenting at the full day OpenACS training in Boston on Nov 3rd. They will start at 2:30 PM Eastern and go for 60-90 minutes. Please come if you'd like to learn from the beginning and you'll also be helping me out in preparing. These will start this Sunday (10/15)

Also, next Friday (10/20 at noon Eastern) I'll be covering Site Map Administration. This particular topic is good for both technical and non-technical as it covers a lot of the special parts in OpenACS.

And finally, Friday 10/27 at noon Eastern, I'll be doing a user training on the survey module and also showing some modules ACSPropel has built as simple extensions.

Registration will open soon. I have webinar software for 15 slots (linux clients supported) so that will be the class limit.

Also, would it be possible to post the contents of the files created during the demo please. They would make a good introduction to programming in TCL and ADP.

Thanks

We are going to try Festoon.. Matthew and I have been testing that.. but I'm working on a backup in case that doesn't work. (it might be webex, or glance plus festoon)

I'll send everyone an email....

It's quite a tricky problem... to have linux client, VOIP, work well and cost under $100. People recommend Abobe Breeze but to be able to have a 5 person webinar it's $350/month and for 10 people it's $750 month!

It's too bad the sound on Webex was so bad... Mom and I were doing experimenting just with skype it may be that I had the sound on my speaker instead of my headset because when I switch configuration it was much better.

webex works pretty fine for us, but you have to have a good headset. Anyways, for this type of webminars, we can share our corporate account for all of them. :-)

Hey,

If we are going to use Festoon attendees will need an instant messaging account with the Festoon plug-in http://www.festooninc.com/. I know it works with Skype but it says on the site it is cross-IM and supports Google talk also.

Hope that helps...

I know the audio quality on this file is poor we will try using some other sound codec for next session.
