I’m multitasking today, demonstrating ‘live blogging’ while attending Temple University’s Center for Intergenerational Studies’ webinar on Baby Boomer engagement.

You’re probably dazzled by my skills, right?! That cracks me up! You know why? Today is only my second time using ‘Cover It Live‘ .
My sole experience with this ‘live blogging’ tool is looking over the should of someone next to me at a conference, visiting the URL on my own wireless connection & laptop, and poking around at the website to sign in. At the next breakout session, there I was, publishing my notes live on a website I had access to. Not without error, but I was learning as I was doing!! Same thing today–I had to look up how to log in and figure out how to embed the code here. But it took less than two minutes to start up again.
Applications? This is relevant in newsworthy situations–the recent political conventions come to mind, but a conference is a great application–and a great way to experiment with testing the ‘but they didn’t pay to get in’ waters!! It delivers real-time information to people anywhere, and it archives your notes and comments in a readily accessible format. Other ideas for nonprofit applications come to mind?
