Amplifying Events from Santander

Brian Kelly is still over in Spain and today gave a keynote plenary talk on “Embedding and Sustaining University 2.0” at the University 2.0: the Extended University conference held at the Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo.

Unfortunately due to the hour difference I missed most of the talk but once again the event amplification was interesting.

The event was streamed on UIMP-TV, the streaming channel for the event. Although you could hear Brian in the background there was a translator talking over the top. A little difficult to watch if you don’t speak Spanish!

For those of us watching the talk whose Spanish is sadly lacking (hey I got GCSE Spanish!) there was an Elluminate session just in English. I’ve used Elluminate several times before but this is the first time I’ve seen video used as well as slides. The video wasn’t particularly good quality but it gave a rough idea of how what the presenter was up to, which makes it feel a little more like you are there.

Once again there was lots of Twitter action on the #uimpuni20 hashtag and live blogging from Kirsty.

Brian’s slides are available from Slideshare and embedded below.
