Maritime Logistics Community News : Autumn 2013
37 MARITIME LOGISTICS COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2012/AUTUMN 2013 Virtual Classroom/WEBINAR. The Virtual Classroom software that has been trailed by Defence will allow an Instructor to host a lesson on-line at any time and from any location with a number of registered users who can login from sea, from home or from a hotel in Thailand. The student can hear/see the Instructor and can also see power-point slides or demonstrations as part of the lesson. The Instructor can stop the students from speaking during the lesson and have them type their questions during the lesson in the instant messaging bar in the window or allow them to ask questions throughout; it is entirely up to the Instructor as the host. This software can also allow a web based seminar, or WEBINAR, were the host is the keynote speaker and participants register to log-in and hear/ see the presenter give a professional development lecture on the benefits of having a LinkedIn Account, for example (the business equivalent of Facebook). Moreover, if the speaker wishes to illustrate a point on an application they are talking about, for example, the host computer is the only computer that needs to have the application loaded to demonstrate the point they are making; therefore, if I have never seen a LinkedIn Account before, the speaker can bring up their Account and show the participants what it looks like and how they connect with people if they had an account. Assistance Unfortunately, due to the limited resource capacity of the Project Team currently, some projects will take some time to trial and, if successful, implement as the Faculty needs to make sure that whatever system it implements is robust and sustainable. Therefore, if you know anyone who would be willing to join the Faculty on contract or working part-time to help with the trials and implementation, please contact Donna Kean on the Faculty email address below. Feedback Contact Finally, the Faculty now has a group email address that you can email your feedback or questions that will be directed to the appropriate person for response: Maritime.Logisticstraining@defence.gov.au Conclusion The next 12 months and beyond for the Faculty are going to be exciting and hopefully revolutionary and if you think you're the person to want to get involved, then you are more than welcome to volunteer to come to the Faculty as an Instructor or a Project Team member. All of the projects that are currently underway and planned are intended to make your learning experience more enjoyable and suited to your situation at the time. Although everything in this article appears to be very un-DRN user-friendly, the Project Team can vouch that it is not and could be the way of the future. Remember, if Reality TV can be borne from a lack of scripts, just imagine what ideas or concepts could be borne from a lack of resources!
