Live Stream 1: Review of the course content and the ‘What’s in a name?' story

UPDATE: Dear all, due to University of Strathclyde staff now working from home because of Covid-19, we have to cancel this Live Stream session. We do these sessions from a recording studio on campus and an IT staff member is there to run the cameras and sets up the YouTube space. That clearly won’t work now that we are all at home…

However, the University is bringing in a live session system which I hope to use for the planned session in the 4th week of the course (3rd of April). The turn around time on this is just too short for our session on the 20th though.

I will answer questions which come in on the forum by responding to them so please do keep those coming!

Apologies for this cancellation and I really hope to ‘see’ you all on the 3rd of April. Once I understand this new live session system, more information on that live session will be emailed to you.

Take care of yourselves - Tahitia

On this course, learners will have the opportunity to ask the educators particular questions through live events called Live Streams. These events also allow the educator to recap the previous week.

This is the first of our two Live Stream sessions. We will discuss the content of the course so far and the developments in the ‘What’s in a name?’ story. Chris Atkins will attend this session and will be sharing progress and thoughts on her research journey.

This Live Stream event will take place on Friday 20th March 2020 at 16:10 GMT. You can watch it live on YouTube. This event has now been cancelled

We encourage you to ask questions and comment on the week’s topics during the Live Stream, and we’ll select the most popular ones to respond to during the event.

How can I ask a question?

There are three ways you can do this:

  1. You can leave your question or comments on this step in advance. We hope to include some of these in the discussion - please ‘like’ the comments you find interesting to help us choose the most useful ones
  2. You will be able to send questions and comments during the event by submitting them in the YouTube chat window (if you have a Google account).
  3. You can follow and add to questions and comments on Twitter using the hashtag #FLgenealogy or sending a message to @FLgenealogy.

What happens if I can’t watch the Live Stream?
Don’t worry! Realtime participation is not a mandatory part of this course, but it is fun and we think you’d get a lot out of it. A recording of the discussion will be available at the same address above after the live event finishes. You can still make a contribution by leaving your question or comments on this step in advance, and we may include some of these in the discussion.

Will loading the Live Stream mean I appear on camera?
No, you will just watch the Live Stream like any other video.

Is a Google account required to view the Live Stream?
No, you can watch the Live Stream without logging in to Google. If you wish to submit comments, please use the methods above.

Not sure what time the Live Stream will happen in your area?
