Thanks for the email. After school at 4pm would be easier for me. The advantage of getting them together to discuss the session as well as knowing that equipment will work helps.

Subject: [vet-mm] Year 12 student revision lecture - need your input
Dear Year 12 IDM teachers,
You may be aware that in the past pixelEd has run a free online exam revision lecture for students (and teachers)
This has been done using video conferencing software called Eluminate (it is now Blackboard, I think!)
Traditionally we held the online lecture in the holidays, but we are now planning to run it during the first week of term 4.
We think this might give teachers a chance to remind and urge their students to take part. It will also give you/students a bit of time to test you can access the video conference room and iron technical glitches.
We are wondering how many teachers would like it held after school eg 4.00, so that they might have their class stay back and use the school network to take part.
The alternative is to schedule for around 5.00, giving students time to get home and access the session from there.
Both options have pros and cons - we would like to try and maximise participation, and wonder what you think?
At this stage we are looking at Thurs Oct 10th, but will confirm details in a few weeks time.
The session will run for about 90 mins, and will be recorded, so could be viewed after the delivery.
The advantage of attending live is that students can text in questions/engage in discussion if they wish.
Please send us your thoughts on this.
PS – the pixelEd 2013 sample exam will be available soon – watch this space!!
