OpenEd 2012 Multimedia Wrapup with Zeega

by scott on October 31, 2012

Got an invite to try a new multimedia mashup tool called Zeega, so thought I’d try to take a crack at telling the tale of Open Ed 2012 using this new tool. Warning: the tool is a self-declared Alpha, so don’t be surprised if you see some funky behaviour. Still, hopefully an interesting experiment:

You should have received an email about this (which also included the attendees list from the conference) but if by chance your spam filter is working overtime, or maybe you just forgot, we’d REALLY appreciate if you’d take a few moments to fill in the post-conference survey. It will really help future organizers learn what worked and what didn’t and help keep making Open Ed the best conference we can.

Last Nag for Presenter Slides

by scott on October 22, 2012

Thanks to all who presented at Open Ed 2012. I have but one last request – if you haven’t yet (and you know who you are!!) please do email me either the slides as an attachment or else the URL for where they can be found on the web so they can be added to the full conference archive. We recorded each and every breakout session, and are hoping we can have the accompanying slides for posterity.

Thanks, Scott Leslie

OpenEd Treasure Box Prompt 7

by cogdog on October 22, 2012

Prompt 7: Share a photo, audio, or video that represent the first thing about Open Education conference you will share with your colleagues

This is our seventh (and last) daily prompt for attendees to share things that represent their Open Education 2012 experience. This was available on a special little device we call the OpenEd Treasure Box – a local sharing environment that will be on premises next week in Vancouver.

We collected an interesting set of media, but want to cast the call once more for contributions, now that you have left the conference, but before the experience starts to dissipate (not that we expect it will…).

By the end fo this week, we will be posting the content of the box back online so you can have a chance to explore, and maybe make something of the media we collected.

The things you asked to share- any file you can upload from your computer- are the stuff that you do NOT put out into public social media. Why? because this is an experiment in local shared media that will have no context, yet is unique, like from a time capsule.

The goal was to explore a new way of capturing the conference experience in media.

If you missed yesterday’s prompt,  no worries- you can do these in whatever order works for you- it was

Each day’s prompt includes a creative challenge for you to capture in photo, graphic. video, audio form, heck even text is ok. How you interpret it is wide open.

How to Share:

Since the conference is over, the box is gone… but we still offer a way for you to send media to our dropbox The key thing is to give your files a descriptive (or mysterious) name before you upload them- that is the only information you can share about the contents.

Upload as many things as you like to dropitto.me/cogdog – use the password storybox. Or you can email attachments to the dropbox via

 storybox (UNDERSCORE) tu8r (AT) sendtodropbox DOT com

Not So Small Print

Because of the nature of this anonymous technology, there is no way to provide credit for media shared, we are asking for the most free of licenses- that you release media into the public domain under CC0

OpenEd Treasure Box Prompt 6

by cogdog on October 18, 2012

Someone already made an album cover for Gardner Campbell's keynote! This is direct from the box.

Prompt 6: Make a photo or drawing that represents the most amazing thing you heard or saw at the conference that is brand new to you

What is the thing from this conference that you will be most eager to share when you return?

This is our sixth daily prompt for attendees to share things that represent their Open Education 2012 experience. This will be available on a special little device we call the OpenEd Treasure Box – a local sharing environment that will be on premises next week in Vancouver. We are seeing the first wave of media arrive and they look great, but we want more, much much much more. These should take but a few minutes to capture and share.

The things you ask to share- any file you can upload from your computer- are the stuff that you do NOT put out into public social media. Why? because this is an experiment in local shared media that will have no context, yet is unique, like from a time capsule.

Each day’s prompt includes a creative challenge for you to capture in photo, graphic. video, audio form, heck even text is ok. How you interpret it is wide open.

How to Share:

At the conference today you will be able to upload directly to the Treasure Box through its local wireless network. We’ll provide those instructions so you know where to look for the network (it’s in the main lobby, easy to find). We also have set up a way for you to send media to our dropbox (especially for certain mobile devices, iAhem, that do not allow access to files on them). The key thing is to give your files a descriptive (or mysterious) name before you upload them- that is the only information you can share about the contents.

Create a 30 second radio bumper (see example for ds106), a sensationalized tv show advertisement, or a graphic poster for the conference. What should the world know about Open Ed 2012? This will also help with the live audio streaming that is going on all conference long:

OpenEd Treasure Box Prompt 1

by cogdog on October 11, 2012

Prompt 1: Share a photo, ambient audio, or video that captures the essence of the space you do your best work in.

This could be your office, local coffee shop. den, living room, back yard, canoe… Get the idea? We are trying to get a sense of where people are coming from.

As a lead up to the launch of the 2012 Open Education Conference, we are opening the first of daily prompts for attendees to share media representing their Open Education 2012 experience. This will be available on a special little device we call the OpenEd Treasure Box – a local sharing environment that will be on premises next week in Vancouver.

The things you ask to share- any file you can upload from your computer- are the stuff that you do NOT put out into public social media. Why? because this is an experiment in local shared media that will have no context, yet is unique, like from a time capsule. The only place you will be able to see the content is at the conference in Vancouver (well we are about being open, so after the conference it shall be released and hopefully, remixed…)

The goal is to explore a new way of capturing the conference experience in media.

Each day’s prompt includes a creative challenge for you to capture in photo, graphic. video, audio form, heck even text is ok. How you interpret it is wide open. And as we compile the challenges you can choose any of the ones that have gone by.

How to Share:

At the conference you will be able to upload directly to the Treasure Box through its local wireless network. We’ll provide those instructions starting Tuesday. But for now, we have set up a way for you to send media to our dropbox. The key thing is to give your files a descriptive (or mysterious) name before you upload them- that is the only information you can share about the contents.

Upload as many things as you like to dropitto.me/cogdog – use the password storybox. Or you can email attachments to the dropbox via
