Notes from the exploration and selection process for Chico's next Learning Management System

Recordings of our Moodle and Blackboard guest speakers

tape reelsHere are the recordings of our webinar sessions with two schools that have migrated to next-generation Learning Management Systems from Blackboard CE/Vista. These are Wimba archives, so you’ll need the Java plug-in and speakers to play them. To see the questions we asked each presenter to answer, see the previous blog post.

The conversation in the room was electric afterwards. We’re so appreciative to Cherie Blut of CSUSM, Chris Bray as well as Ken and Elaine from University of Arkansas for speaking with us candidly about their experiences to help us make good choices in our future.

    Was trying to listen to the Moodle recording and encountered:

    Wimba Classroom v6.0.1-2 ( error 509 ) Archive Media Error
    General playback error, unable to play.

    Hmmm, also tried the Blackboard recording and got the same…

    Wimba Classroom v6.0.1-2 ( error 509 ) Archive Media Error
    General playback error, unable to play.

    Maybe it’s me. I could get the Wimba interface with the slides, but no audio.

    I assume this happened while running the Setup Wizard? Apparently an error 509 from Wimba is an indication that there is a problem with Wimba’s Java Applets connecting to your computer, specifically with proxy settings. Please send me an e-mail if the above doesn’t make sense to you and I’ll try to help you get sorted out. pdifalco@csuchico.edu

    Were either of you able to resolve this problem in Linux? I experienced the same error.
