Wiziq and Online Classes

I am blown away.

Just led my Thursday night 'social tech in ed' class at JHU in Baltimore. Except, I'm sitting on a park bench in NYC.

Used Wiziq.

I was very skeptical at first, as I haven't had the best experiences using online-session software.

But this was seamless. And the students loved it.

We shared videos, had an ongoing backchannel, and were able to swap out mics for audio. I made it a public session, so we even had a teacher from India stop by and share ideas.

I strongly encourage you all to check out Wiziq... and regular readers know that's not something I say often.
