I plan on finishing my live meeting project on 12/8 but I have been working on it for a while. My partner is Mike Maki. Mike and I have worked a lot with google hangouts. It took a while for us to get used to it but we seem to understand the capabilities. This looks like a great way to present online to students.
I have also been experimenting with Adobe Connect. I have found that I can set everything up for my lesson before I actually go live with the students. There is a notes section and I can open up a bunch of little windows with everything I am working on. i just need to click to make those files available for my students to see.
My lesson is computing the volume and surface area of a rectangular prism. I am actually doing this lesson in class this week so I am going to see how it works out with my students. I have a powerpoint that I can present and review live on screen. Within the powerpoint are formative assessments. I have included a link to a summative assessment that they can take online once they complete the classwork. This is a very good lesson for me because I hope to teach online classes in the very near future.
I would recommend that it is definitely very important to be prepared for any technical problems when presenting live. I am sure that with experience there tends to be less problems but preparation will keep the problems to a minimum. It is also worth mentioning that having a plan B in case of any problems or technical issues also helps.
