I always learn lots of things from Erin and I must say this idea of gaming so interests me. I enjoyed the articles she provided and the Web Conference was easy as we are both very comfortable with Skype. I like the article on Young as well.
I found an interesting article on Student Perceptions of Web Conferencing in Hybrid Classes (Hofstetter 2010) http://udel.edu/~shule/new/ActionResearchPaper.pdf
The technology has improved so much that I think people have a much better opinion of web conferencing than when this paper was written six (6) years ago. We know use Skype regularly and FaceTime with comfort and ease. I am very comfortable using Skype and other web conferencing systems.
