Getting started[edit]

OK. We know you're out there! Please grab yourself an IRC client if you don't already have one, and tune it to #wikiversity-en and we'll work through getting connected. CQ 02:50, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Teleconference instructions[edit]

We're doing some teleconferencing tests. We can write up instructions below. CQ 20:36, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Asterisk and MozIAX[edit]

We have an ongoing Asterisk conference line set up. You will need a headset and softphone such as MozIAX to connect. There are other clients that work, too.

Look at Talk:Wikio and Wikiversity talk:Sandbox Server for some progress and agenda stuff. Tune in to #wikiversity-en to get the server IP and other details. CQ 20:42, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

New Tester Available[edit]

Hi guys, I just got a camera and microphone system so I guess in theory I can get setup to use voip. I will download MozIAX and try to get installed and make contact sometime this weekend. Mirwin 10:09, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Ok I have MozIAX installed and apparently functional. I go now to find an IRC client for Windows XP/Firefox. Mirwin 11:09, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Free voice conference[edit]

Hi. I've been talking vaguely with JWSchmidt about teamspeak. I's a free (for non-profit orgs, etc.) voice conference system. It allows recording by the client, setting up your own voice server, setting up channels (rooms) as allowing free entrance or private, up to 100 participants (1000 per free server). I'm not related to the thing, I've just been using it in the context of IVAO flight simulation network. A few tests might be useful to assess it's real uses and utility in a learning environment; namely, never having used voice chat, I don't know if it has advantages over it. All you need is a headset (os so) and downloading the client, there are public servers already running. Still, a "chalkboard" system would be necessary to exchange written notes, sketches and links.
