In this episode we prepare for the arrival of many folks for the beginning of Bavastock 2011 starting at Jim’s house on Thursday, Martha on Friday, Jim on Saturday, and Andy on Sunday, culminating in a #ds106radio telethon event all day Monday where we will raise money for that project.
In this episode Grant Potter, who is the mastermind behind ds106radio, talks a bit about the next step for the community radio station that has been running for almost a year now. The new system will allow for conference calls between multiple people that go live to the radio automatically, as well as a toll-free 888 number to call in.
Today we go behind the scenes with Michael Branson Smith who is the T.A. for Professor Oliver Lindenbrook where they are teaching a course on Digital Storytelling out of CUNY. We get to talk a little bit about his wardrobe as well as his plans for the course and the amazing setup they have there.
In this special (and rather long) episode of DTLT Today we sit down with Cheryl Colan, Michael Branson Smith, and Todd Conaway to discuss how the structure for ds106 will work. Find out about the for-credit courses that Cheryl and Michael are running and how UMW with the help of Todd, GNA Garcia, and others will represent a distributed open online effort within their courses.
