I still, however, will need a webcam, mine is broken and my computer does not come with an automatic camera.

Hello Charles!
This is great, that you are preparing your presentation. As you all know, I hope you all will prepare videos and slide presentations and written papers, which I will post on your web page no matter what, so visitors before and after, can view your presentation in depth.

But the live streaming is like standing in front of the podium and in 20 minutes to 30 minutes, you will, sitting in front of your computer, give a little speech, telling people live about your work, and then people will ask you questions…just like presenting at a conference.

The Symposium is not on Skype. It has nothing to do with Skype.

The Symposium is on Google Hangouts. It is another kind of software, and it is free and easy to use. We will teach you how to use the software before the event so you feel ready.

And you do not have to record your own presentation. Google is doing that for us. The entire Symposium - all of the presentations - will be recorded and streamed live on YouTube while we are presenting.

So no worries ;-)

Val ;-)

I am working on my presentation, starting with the overview and then the first chapter of the dictionary. I will have my new camera then so that I hope we can go through my presentation page by page with discussion a I can't figure out how to record Skype.

Dear SignWriting List Members -
I am starting to get quite excited about the SignWriting Symposium.

As you know, I am working on your web pages right now. Each of the 40 presentations will have its own web page.

Then, on July 21-24, 2014, the SignWriting Symposium presentations will be broadcast live on Google Hangouts, which means that thousands of people will be able to watch the Symposium presentations for free, streamed live on YouTube.

So thanks to Google technology (thank you, Google team), we will be streaming live on YouTube - isn’t that exciting?!!

Then the broadcasted videos of the event will remain on YouTube as saved videos.

We will do 10 presentations daily for four days. Each presentation will be presented live for around 20 to 30 minutes with some time after for questions and answers. So we will be hosting interactive conversations with people around the world. Maybe we can take questions in advance from the community and answer the most popular questions live. Presenters might be able to answer the questions in more depth privately with the questioners later. We will try to provide a place on the web for those answers to be posted.

What technology will you need to present? Google Hangouts works on most computers, Android and Apple devices, so you can connect with everyone, and no one gets left out. So this means you could present from an iPad or iPhone, but if you have a computer with a wider screen, it might be better only because of the larger screen may show more to the viewers, if you are pointing to diagrams etc…I am not sure about this yet and will find out.

So please tell your friends and co-workers that you will be presenting live-streamed on YouTube in July, and perhaps they will want to watch the entire Symposium - each presentation is fascinating. I am stunned by the Abstracts and the amazing projects around the world.

I am creating a schedule for the 40 presentations and I will write to each of you to find out if you can meet that schedule -

Have a splendid day!

Val ;-)
