How to Deliver a Memorable Online Demo

Most online demos  showcasing software or web tools tend to be boring, long and with little interaction with the attendee. What can you do to deliver a memorable online demo?

Demonstrtion of Virtual Language Learning Machines and their use and in the virtual classroom. 

I love creating games and puzzles for language students and SL offers possibilities beyond real life. I'd like to demonstrate and share some of the machines I've made and ask for feedback and comments on these. Puzzles and Machines to Demo:
1.  Spelling/vocab Bridges and stairs
2.  Multiple Choice Machines. The Sick Dog, The Treasure Chest, The Mine, The Robot- The same old task with a twist
3. The Shooting Gallery
4.  Human Close tests
5.   Ten Pin Bowliing with Words

These are fairly big and numerous prims. I'd expect the demo to go on for an hour with the first forty mins on demonstration and the last twenty on feedback.

  Wesley Fryer StoryChasing: Empowering Students as Digital Witnesses (Part 2 of 2)
Just as a stormchaser uses available technologies, knowledge and skills to pursue and document an impending thunderstorm, storychasers use their tools and abilities to document stories of local, regional, national or international interest. In our classrooms and after-school programs, as educators we can empower learners of all ages to become digital witnesses and responsible citizen journalists as storychasers. Whether on a school field trip, conducting research for a class project or school journalism assignment, or interviewing local residents to share about their lives and experiences, storychasers can and are utilizing a rich array of new media tools to create, communicate, and collaborate. Come learn how to join the storychaser's communication revolution, and catalyze the development of a diverse array of 21st century as well as traditional literacy skills with students in your local community who can become empowered storychasers!

(read comments on venue - under abstract)

   Iffaf Khan iykhan@essex.ac. uk  Monday morning classes   The title of the topic refers to the idea of why self-access material is important.  This is a talk and a swap shop of tools for self-access.  The aim is two-fold: to illustrate how Second Life provides opportunities for self-access and to provide examples of self-access material.   The audience are asked to bring their own ideas and suggestions of self-access material to the swap shop. 

This will last for one hour. Venue: The event would be held in our Ivor Crewe Auditorium (which is a replica of the real one).  Participants would have to visit the campus the day before, at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Wivenhoe%20Island/247/26/22 , to request a group invitation.  Two hours before the event they would be given a day pass and after the event they will be ejected from the group

There will be a drop box at the above-mentioned location one week before the talk.  Participants can drop notecards in it with their comments, ideas or suggestions for self-access in RL and SL.  Participants should clearly name their notecards.  I'll make the drop box full-perm so they can see and read each other's notecards ahead of time.  It should add to the flavour of the swap shop and it make it truly interactive.

Sorry about cell alignment on our schedule page, don't waste your time trying to fix it. Normal HTML code doesn't vertically align text in these cells. We've written PBWiki/works about it. Their response is indicated in the first comment here http://wiaoc09.pbworks.com/schedule. The outcome is not ideal, but functional we hope.
