Hi Steve, everyone,
Blackboard Collaborate has been an old friend for many years. I had a small role to play in introducing it to TAFE teachers in Victoria, Australia back in 2003, when it was Illuminate Live!
Since then I have been using it for webinars and meetings and tutorials for teachers in adult education as part of the push for eLearning.
Three years ago a small team of eLearning enthusiasts created OZeLIVE, an annual online conference for connected educators in Australian time zone friendly times. We chose BbC as our preferred platform for the presentations and were generously supported by Steve Hargadon and his team. Ww are now a partner of the Learning Revolution and we are proud to announce the third OZeLIVE event, scheduled for February 26-28 in 2016.
For details on OZeLIVE 2016 please visit our current online flier at
Please feel free to join our OZeLIVE community at
We currently use BbC for our weekly Community Connect webinars scheduled for Thursday nights at 8pm AEDT
And I am a regular user of BbC for presenting local and global Online Training for Toastmasters.
I can't get by without my BbC!
Cheers from Baranduda, Victoria, Australia
