This is fantastic! Please let me know if there is anything that WICHE/WCET
can do to support the effort. I also believe our SREB colleagues would be

Hi James, All,

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Here is a draft brief description of the Remote Instrumentation Content
Carnival as we discussed at the retreat in Phoenix a few weeks ago. I look
forward to speaking with the NANSLO/Internet2 RI working group further about
this on our call on Monday.


Remote Instrumentation "Content Carnival" Proposal

Goal(s): The primary goal of the proposed Remote Instrumentation “Content
Carnival” is to build upon the work already done in the NANSLO/Internet2
remote instrument working group survey project and highlight remote
instrumentation projects and resources available to the educational community
in a very real and engaged format through live demos, remote audience
interaction, and observed participation by schools around the country.

Format: The all virtual event would run for several hours or a half day type
format (say from 11am PST - 3pm EST) to accommodate multiple timezones and
maximize participation by schools across the country. We would coordinate 30
min. “demos” of the remote instrument or labs that agreed to participate
allowing for a brief presentation or overview by a PI or lab manager and then
a “demo” if applicable followed by a live Q&A with participating schools. The
half day format would allow for up to 8 30 minute presentations or if we
received more than 8 presentation requests we could even run multiple
simultaneous tracks or break the event up over two days. The entire event
would be run over live interactive video with an “inner circle” of
participating IVC sites and a larger “outer circle” of view only sites
watching the live webstream. Interactive schools would sign up for only 1 30
minute session so they would not be required to stay connected for the entire
four hour half day event. Participating remote instrumentation projects/labs
would gain the additional national/international visibility and awareness of
their work often key to the educational outreach goals of funded projects.
Schools and the national community would gain a deeper understanding of the
available remote instruments and labs reachable over advanced networks.

Next steps:
- Determine the supporting IVC and streaming resources. KINBER can volunteer
to provide BlueJeans IVC bridging for this if desired (possibly streaming as
well). Other regional/state networks may have alternative
- Pick a date for the carnival. Sometime in Feb. - May would be ideal.
- Create a brief proposal format and disseminate to remote instrument
PIs/labs inviting them to participate.
- Determine the schedule based on content providers committed.
- Create a webpage and registration mechanism (google forms) to allow schools
to register for particular sessions.
- Advertise the event to schools
- Test with Labs/Content Providers
- Test with Schools
- Live event

It looks like Mondays at 8:30am Pacific/9:30am Mountain/10:30am
Central/11:30am Eastern works best for the group. Let's start with a 1/2
hour monthly standing meeting time . We can increase frequency and duration
as needed.

Our first meeting will be Monday Dec 9th. I'll send a calendar invite

Until then, Jennifer Oxenford has graciously offered to draft an initial
description of the proposed RI "content provider carnival" videoconferencing
event. We can discuss the idea in more detail during our Dec 9 meeting.

Hi Folks,

As we discussed during our recent working group progress report in Tempe, the
current standing meeting time/day doesn’t work for several members of our the
team. I've created the following doodle poll to help us find a time/day that
works better. We can probably also consider meeting monthly at this point
but that is something we can discuss on our next call.

Please submit your standing meeting availability at your earliest convenience:
