You may have noticed that I've been giving Macromedia Breeze a workout. I'm honored they chose me to give the first two sessions in their inaugural webinar series. Five hundred people signed up for Sam's and my presentation today, although of course nowhere near that many followed through. The etiquette in signing up for webinars is undefined; suffice it to say that registering for an online event is closer to highlighting a show you want to watch in the t.v. listings than to accepting an invitation to a wedding reception.
I'll post the URL to Sam's and my gig as soon as I can lay my hands on it. In the meantime, here are a couple for your listening pleasure. Please leave a comment telling us what you think of Breeze as a delivery medium.
The Edinburgh Scenarios, 34 minutes, Jonathan Star and Jay Cross
New Directions, 17 minutes, Jay Cross
I've said this before but I'll say it again: PowerPoint presentations without narration or notes are about as useful for learning as a Rorschach test. The interpretation tells you more about the reader than about what the author had in mind. Wordless PowerPoint decks are cop-outs, e.g. "I missed the meeting but I looked through the PowerPoints." You betcha.
