Just a fun experiment where I embed a bunch of Web 2.0 apps onto a single web page for an online conference room.

Conferencing on the Cheap With Web 2

  1. Make a simple Web-based Conference Room with Web 2.0 By Chaz Maloney FREEWARE
  2. A good question… Is it possible to “mash up” a bunch of freebie Web 2.0 tools onto a single web page to create a virtual conference room? at least i think so
  3. The answer… YES!
  4. How I built a Conference Room ‘Mash-up’… the roughly six steps: <ul><li>First I had to decide what are the most important tools for the conference room? </li></ul><ul><li>Go out and find the tools. There is a free embeddable tool for just about everything. </li></ul><ul><li>Get a copy of the free tool and collect the html and javascript snippets required to embed the tool. </li></ul><ul><li>Build a single web page container for the snippets. </li></ul><ul><li>Put the web page on a host. </li></ul><ul><li>Invite several people to the web page for a test run. </li></ul>
  5. What are the most important web2.0 tools to include? <ul><ul><li>I selected four for my first attempt (you might look for different tools): </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Slide presenter tool </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Voice over IP tool </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Chat tool </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>File download </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. Finding the tools… <ul><li>Slide presenter tool = slideshare.net </li></ul><ul><li>Voice over IP tool = yackpack.com </li></ul><ul><li>Chat tool = meebo.com </li></ul><ul><li>File download = for now, just a hyperlink to a file on my website  </li></ul>
  7. Harvesting embeddable html and javascript snippets
  8. Build a web page… <ul><li>Use your favorite wysiwyg editor to create a table with an appropriately sized cell for each tool. </li></ul><ul><li>Go to code reveal and paste in the tool embedding snippets for each tool. </li></ul><ul><li>Save the page </li></ul><ul><li>Load the page to a web server! </li></ul>
  9. Now, invite a few people to see your nifty and sleek conference room. Join me in my fancy online conference room: http:// www.radford.edu/ccosmato/room /
