Maha Bali commented on a post on Blogger.
Agreeing with Wendy and Rebecca. Including a virtual person or more requires intentionality and rethinking facilitation. Definitely helps to have an advocate in the room. Recently experienced two vastly different virtual event experiences. Many ppl just don't know how to do this kinda thing. Thanks Wendy for sharing your experience

It was an honor and a pleasure to have +Peter Suber​ join us on hangout yday #Openlearning17
I'm delighted to say that a group of colleagues is reading my 2012 book, Open Access (MIT Press) and annotating it with Hypothes.is.

The group is part of the #OpenLearning17 MOOC, directed by +Susan Erickson and +Maha Bali. The reading is from the Week 7 curriculum.

The version of the book they're annotating is the MIT Press PDF.

For all 12 OA editions of the book (same text, different file formats), as well as my growing collection of updates and supplements, see the book home page.

If you don't yet use Hypothes.is, here's how to start.

BTW, just two weeks ago the W3C adopted a standard for web annotation, and Hypothes.is is standard-compliant.

So we just published this
Great +Virtually Connecting (& #digped ) authors have a new paper at +The Online Learning Consortium :-)

Abstract

Virtually Connecting (VC) is a connected learning volunteer movement that enlivens virtual conference experiences by partnering those that are at the conference with virtual participants that cannot attend. In looking to articulate the ethos and intentions of VC, a manifesto was developed by a group of core members and presented at the Digital Learning Research Network in 2015. This paper connects the group’s ethos, as defined in this manifesto, to various learning theories including Connectivism, connected learning, and the practice of online communities. The paper reports on both quantitative and qualitative results from a survey sent to members of the community over February and March of 2016, as well as some information obtained from blogs and other forms of social media, and ties these results to the manifesto items. This alignment of theory and participant feedback shows continuity between the stated ethos of the community and the impressions of those living the volunteer experience.

Ethos and Practice of a Connected Learning Movement: Interpreting Virtually Connecting Through Alignment with Theory and Survey Results
