Learning2gether with Week 1 overview of EVO 2016 moderator training

Sunday November 1, 2015 - 1400 UTC / GMT

 
What was it about? 
 

Electronic Village moderators for the EVO 2016 sessions met online in a revolving-door Hangout on Air (HoA) for a meet-and-greet to kick off the new round of EVO moderator training. Mbarek Akaddar provided an overview of the training session, and Nina Liakos talked about why moderator training is important for experienced moderators and new moderators alike. The general public were welcome to attend and share ideas and questions by listening in the stream and interacting with moderators in the hangout and other participants in real-time in our Chatwing chat space
http://chatwing.com/vancestev.

This was billed as a good opportunity to meet next year’s moderators and learn firsthand about what will be on offer when EVO opens for registration on Jan 3, 2016.

This was the 298th episode of Learning2gether, who are hosting the event.

I just wanted to show my enthusiasm for EVO. I've been a participant for years and it has always contributed to my development. I look forward to the learning how to contribute to it next year by helping in the moderation of Minecraft EVO with Vance, Marijana, Barbie, Jeff, Tamas and others. I gotta go now. I'll be watching the recording and catching up.

This chat stays around forever, but the chat in the hangout vanishes when the hangout closes
