As webworks is one of several systems that can be used with moodle to provide math instruction and assessment, I have provided below the notice from Jason regarding this weeks webworks videoconference on using webworks in high school.
This is an invitation to attend another web-conference discussing subjects pertaining to WeBWorK. This one will take place this Wednesday February 10th at 5pm EST.
We will be discussing the use of WeBWorK in High Schools. We hope to have input from a diverse group of high school teachers who use WeBWorK to discuss the advantages and difficulties of using WeBWorK in High Schools.
Instructions for joining the meeting are below. We will be using a new web-conferencing platform called DimDim, so these instructions are different from instructions for joining our past web-conferences.
We hope to make web-conferences at this Wednesday 5pm time a regular event -- scheduled every two weeks. (And we would love to have volunteers for presenters/discussion leaders.) You can find recordings of some previous web-conferences, resources for those web-conferences,
and the announcements of future web-conferences on the WeBWork wiki at http://webwork.maa.org/wiki/Video_conferences
If you are interested in joining read the information on connecting at the bottom of the page. It is worthwhile running the check to make sure that you have the necessary software. It takes only a few minutes to make the check.
The purpose of the web conferences would be to help maintain continuity of the WeBWorK community and WeBWorK development between meetings that take place at the Joint Math Meetings, Mathfest and specialized workshops.
If you are interested and have time we hope that you will join us for this session. It will be good to talk with each of you again. Feel free to forward this announcement to others who might be interested in attending. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Hope to see you there!
Information for connecting to the web-conference
To access the meeting go to:
A few tips to make things run smoothly:
*If this is your first web-conference, it may be worthwhile to log in 5-10 minutes early, and I can help you get your audio set up (this is usually the hardest part for first time participants. It's not difficult to do, but occasionally some configuration is required.)
*I recommend accessing the meeting from a relatively fast wired, rather than wireless, connection.
*For audio, a headset tends to work best, but whatever you use, please make sure your computer's settings for audio in and audio out correspond to what you expect to use.
Feel free to forward this to others who might be interested.
