Getting started - Who we are and what we can do for you There is a lot of information streaming through the social web. Tens of thousands of Tweets, Flickr photos, YouTube videos and the like are created every day. Asterisk Asterisk is a complete PBX in software. It runs on Linux, BSD, Windows (emulated) and OS X and provides all of the features you would expect from a PBX and more. Asterisk does voice over IP in four protocols, and can interoperate with almost all standards-based telephony equipment using relatively inexpensive hardware. Asterisk provides Voicemail services with Directory, Call Conferencing, Interactive Voice Response, Call Queuing. It has support for three-way calling, caller ID services, ADSI, IAX, SIP, H.323 (as both client and gateway), MGCP (call manager only) and SCCP/Skinny.

New to E-Learning? Here are Some Simple Steps to Help You Get Started To a novice even simple things seem complex. And when things appear complex, we can become frustrated or feel like we don’t have the skills to accomplish what it is we want to do. I recall years ago when I was learning video production. I felt like my skills were inadequate (which they were). Introducing Version 2 of the Plug-And-Play Asterisk IP PBX for Windows NOTE: The system referenced in this article is no longer supported by Nerd Vittles as this version of Asterisk® has been phased out. For the latest and greatest, please consider our new PBX in a Flash offering. It's birthday week at Nerd Vittles, and today you get the party favor as we introduce the second generation of our free turnkey (aka preconfigured) Asterisk system: nv-TrixBox-1.1.2. As with the first version, it runs on the desktop of any Windows XP home or office computer. If you want a state-of-the-art phone system, look no further. Out of the box, it supports eight extensions and two lines with integrated voicemail and immediate email delivery of your incoming voicemail messages.

The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies (#digilit) Soon after Grace, my daughter, was born earlier this year I was invited to Australia to keynote the Association of Independent Schools, New South Wales ICT Managers’ Conference . At the time, Grace was having some problems with lactose intolerance and so I couldn’t commit to being the other side of the world. The organisers still wanted me to present and so I produced the above ‘TELL Talk’ on along with giving a 50-minute workshop on the same subject. It felt a bit strange getting dressed to present at 2am in the morning to co-ordinate with their schedule but the technology worked well and the session seemed to be well-received. watch the Zipcast of my presentation here Two presentations (#TELIC1 & #iDragon) [VIDEO]

Cubelets: Modular Robot Toy-Kit Cubelets is the name of the very first product of “Modular Robotics” – a spin-off from the famous “robot”-Carnegie Mellon University. It is a kit of free combinable, small robot modules. The website goes: By combining sensor, logic and actuator blocks, young kids can create simple reconfigurable robots that exhibit surprisingly complex. This project looks really interesting and the just moved beyond the first beta-testing phase. I also somehow doubt the “young kids” in that project.

Automatic Dialer With Asterisk And GNUDialer Author: Mario Hernández Email: mariofix <at> spooky <dot> cl Follow me on Twitter This document describes the installation of the Automatic Dialer GNUDialer, this is an alternative dialer to VICIDial, with more lightweight scripts and a far more easier GUI, it uses Asterisk and MySQL for its operation. I will use Debian as the OS system, but this install instructions should work anywhere else. From Classroom to Online, Think “Transform” not “Transfer” by Jane Bozarth “Find out which aspects of the classroom program are most successful ... and which aspects fail. Talk with learners and the classroom instructors, and review any evaluation or follow-up data they are able to provide.” Converting an existing classroom course to an online format can be a tricky, time-consuming undertaking. The easy way out — simply moving the content and lecture portions to an electronic means of delivery — is what leads to e“Learning” at its worst: slide after slide of bulleted information and loss of engaging activities and the contributions of individual instructors. What’s a better way to go? Look for ways to capture the richness that a good instructor brings to the classroom, such as responsiveness, a sense of humor, interesting stories and examples, and immediate feedback.

Asterisk: A Bare-Bones VoIP Example by John Todd 07/03/2003 Open source software (OSS) has achieved a dominant role in the delivery of IP-based content such as web data (Apache) and email (sendmail), and is making serious headway in streaming media (icecast). As processors become less expensive and more powerful, even jobs that were once relegated to specific hardware (such as routing and load sharing) are now becoming possible on low-cost OSS platforms running Linux or BSD-based operating systems. The last bastion of hardware-specific functionality in the office environment has been the phone system, or PBX (Private Branch Exchange).

Help! » Anne Fox I spend a great deal of time facilitating courses helping teachers learn how to integrate ICT into their everyday practice. Although I have facilitated such courses in blended format with a great deal of face to face input, most of the time now I find myself facilitating 100% online. There are worries of course about what happens when a course participant meets technical problems but most of these can be solved quite quickly with relevant screenshots and a careful description of what has been done up to that point. The printscreen button on the keyboard is invaluable in producing ‘photos’ of error messages or whatever else may be giving a problem when using a specific tool and I make increasing use of screencasting tools such as Screenr which help me to demonstrate how to do something on the screen quite easily. Of course this requires a little learner training as well in the use of the PrintScreen button for example.
