Abstract

Synchronous audiographic web conferencing (SAC) technology has come of age and it is now possible to create effective real-time e-learning. SAC technology shows a high potential for education: it is comparably low cost, accessible, suitable for small and large groups, offers a variety of tools for meaningful interaction and has applications in a wide range of settings. However, pedagogy may have to change to capture the potential of the multimodal medium and to address the needs and characteristics of learners from the Net Generation. In March 2006, we implemented a multinational live webinar, produced by the University of Adelaide in cooperation with the London Knowledge Lab (LKL), University of London, as a Multiple Venue Production (MVP). In this MVP, Diana Laurillard from the LKL interacted with more than 450 learners at 41 university campus locations in Australia and New Zealand with the aim to stimulate rich and meaningful exchange between participants by blending the dynamics of face-to-face seminars with online synchronous collaborative techniques, resulting in mass collaboration. This case study addresses the organisational elements and pedagogical concepts behind the production of the webinar.
