I was a bit curious about the technicalities of  who they would run the webinars and found they use http://www.learnitlive.com to present them. In fact all the classes are also listed there http://www.learnitlive.com/CenterforPuppetryArts

zooooom,
I think maybe you are right. I really did not have the time to explore the site much so don't know if a viewer is able to somehow ask questions or if they do just watch.  I do know that they have a couple that are recorded that you can watch that I think are free so those would just be like watching an instructional video.

Shawn is this something that could be added here at Puppets and Stuff. I know we have experimented in the past with skype,blog TV,etc. How different is this than any of the others. I went ahead and opened a account with learn it live and actually went so far as to sign up for a random free class but will not get to see it because it will be later tonight.

Billy,
Might be something that a member could sigh up for and use. Looks a bit like what BlogTV is but it is focused on conferences and seminars. I have a feeling that it has things like being able to charge for access and features that would be useful to teaching.

I did notice that different people have set limits to how many can participate in each class,some 25 others 50. Wondering how that works.... got to read up on it. i wish we could talk with someone that has used it and could give a bit of detail as to whether it worked for them.
I'm going to sit in on one of the freebies just to see how things go.

Wow, thanks for sharing this Shawn! Would be nice if the webinars were recorded so if you missed one you could go back and check it out. I'll have to look into this more :D

I had seen this over at Puppet Hub and I posted some of your questions over there if you want to keep track of any answers. http://www.puppethub.com/forum/topics/webinars-from-the-center-for-puppetry-arts

I missed the free webinar but received a email giving me a updated schedule of when it will be airing again. I also was allowed to see the recording for 7 days. You can do that by going to the persons profile view the lesson you want to look at and click on "recording" download java "blackboard collaborate" then view video and a chalkboard. As far as I can tell this is like a marriage between skype and blog TV. I did a screen shot of the video as i saw it on screen {trying to add screenshot).....saved it in the wrong format.

Yes you are right it is a bit of both Blog TV an Skype. Smiley  The blackboard feature is kind of cool.  The fact that they use Java allows for a lot more options then you get in a regular browser like over at BlogTV.

Shawn I used e sun screen capture and I saved to the wrong format. I really want to view it live to explore the possibilities. Is there a fee for this. I joined but was not ask for money. I'm sure they have some type of gold account or get a percentage of monies made from webinars. I'm curious now.
