I didn't get to attend a conference over the weekend before week 2 started, so I watched the web conference from the recording posted in the course. The conference was mainly a review of what has to be turned in for week. Dr. Abernathy did talk a bit about the audacity program and about the podcast we have to make about how to use a video editing program. The main thing I remember from this was her saying to “GET OVER IT” regarding everyones fear of posting to youtube and online. This is something I am working on overcoming, but it not that easy to do.
The conference for Monday didn't happen. I tried logging in several times only to get the message the conference has not started. I finally emailed Dr. Abernathy and learned that she had gotten busy and forgotten about the meeting. It was rescheduled for Tuesday. It was a short meeting. We covered what has to be done for week 2 (creative commons, audacity, video editing software, making the podcast, and the discussion board). We also talked about what needs to be done in week 3 with our groups (plan our proposal, determine job titles, make google document, come up with a shot list and script, and describe what will happen and what core subject we will be using.
