Vista Higher Learning: How to complete a virtual chat
I’m going to talk to you today about how to do a virtual chat [background music].
So, if you access your virtual chat through your start menu that’s just fine. I’m going to show you another way because I want to show you one of the icons. Now if you’re seeing a Vistas textbook up in the top left-hand corner don’t worry it’s the same for Portales or any other as any other VHL product for that matter. I’m going to go ahead and click on content and access the activities here and I want to show you this little icon down here. This little gray and white dialogue with the bubble over their head that is the icon for the virtual chat. And you may or may not need to know that down the line just thought I’d point that out. All right, so the first time you come in you’re going to be asked your gender so that the speaker will know how to address you whether you’re feminine or masculine. So, I am feminine I’m going to go ahead and click feminine and save. And now I want to point out to you this little icon here, this is letting you know there’s an instructor note on this activity, I’m going to click on that. And you’ll see that there’s a note from me here and, you know, I give you some instruction and so forth about grading, so make sure to read that. Okay, so one thing you’re going to realize is that once this virtual chat begins you cannot stop it or pause it or rewind or anything to go back to understand anything, so you need to let it run through one. That is stimulating a real conversation with someone okay. Don’t worry though you’ll have the opportunity to rerecord if you don’t like what you say. So, let’s go ahead and start. Hola, me llamo Juan Pablo ¿cómo te llamas tú? Okay, so you’re going to see right away that this is going to start oops, let’s point this guy out okay, it is telling me I need to allow the Adobe flash settings on here. This may or may not happen in your browser, if it does just click allow and remember. Okay and then you’re going to see here that it’s recording me now, it’s recording me, recording me I can’t do anything, I’ve got to keep going. Okay now it’s going to ask me the next question oops, here we go. Soy de Puerto Rico ¿y tú? Okay now it’s asking me the next question and here I am I’m not ready, oh geez okay, stop it.>>Now ask me questions based on the answers you see on the screen.>>Okay well, I don’t know what’s going on here. I’m going to click stop okay. Now I should listen back to my recording to make sure that it sounds the way I want it to before I click submit right. So, I’m going to go ahead and listen to what I’ve said here. Hola, me llamo Juan Pablo ¿cómo te llamas tú? And then you’re going to see here that it’s recording me now. Okay, so obviously this is not what I want to submit to my instructor, correct? So, what I’m going to do is I’m going to click on redo activity and now I know what I need to do. [ Music ] Okay. Hola, me llamo Juan Pablo ¿cómo te llamas tú? Me llamo Donna. Soy de Puerto Rico ¿y tú? Soy de San Diego.>>Now ask me questions based on the answers you see on the screen. [ Music ] Hola Juan Pablo ¿cómo estás? ¡Adiós!>>Okay and let me listen to myself. Hola, me llamo Juan Pablo ¿cómo te llamas tú? Me llamo Donna. Soy de Puerto Rico ¿y tú? Soy de San Diego. [ Music ]>>As you see on the screen. [ Music ] Hola Juan Pablo ¿cómo estás? ¡Adiós! [ Music ]>>Okay, so I’m satisfied with that. Now I’m going to go ahead and click on submit down below and I am good to go. Click submit and that’s it, the activity is now complete and I can move on to the rest of my activities on the Vistas Higher Learning Supersite. Okay and that’s all there is to it folks. I hope you found this video informative and have a great time doing these activities, they’re really fun.
