Users of Blackboard Collaborate
This year we have started several group compositions and will continue next year with our "Composing for Change" project that will involve students' collaborations both locally and globally, as our young composers relocate to everywhere in the world and introduce others to the project. We shall involve mentors - other older and more experienced students, teachers and professional musicians to moderate and expand the activity. We hope to have some tangible results to present in time for this year's Global Education Conference and future events such as ECIS Annual Conference, ASB Unplugged etc.
Elluminate would considerably extend our possibilities for synchronous project mapping, chatting and archiving at scheduled moments where our present connection is mainly asynchronous and can be misleading without a moderator.
While the OPUS domain is limited to its participants due to privacy issues we shall be posting work-in-progress and these links will be added in the comment sections below in the coming weeks.
Thanks for opening up this possibility for driving new ideas with the powerful tool that is Blackboard Collaborate - with the inspirational leadership of people like Steve!
