2016 July 12th Meeting Notes.

Version 1
    • Bb Update (Grant Beevers) - Demonstrated the upcoming change in interface. Explained the reasoning around holding off on the breakout rooms due to Google update but mentioned that overnight they had solved the problem so it shouldn't be too much longer. Mentioned that there would be some upcoming announcements from BbWorld.
    • Presentation from Hayley Fuller from SCU on the ‘SCU Wellness and Resilience Project for Online and Distance’. - Thanks Hayley!
    • User group plans (Lauren Hives)- New Collaborate chair (me). Plans to expand the user group to a wider range of users. Overview of the community site page. Mention of the upcoming meeting at the conference in Sydney in August (see calendar)
    • Other items - SCU has had issues with new B2 to enable both versions and is waiting for feedback from Bb. UNSW is planning to start using Ultra soon and was asking about migration. Bb users said that no migration was needed from their perspective because the recordings are all still stored in the same place, however are not 100% certain if the Moodle integration is the same. Everyone is looking forward to the new features. A few institutions are waiting for a boost in max numbers to at least 250.
