xALEc first session

Update:  please find the xALEc Dashboard here.
 
xALEc is an ALE online open space using Google Hangouts every Monday 9:30 pm CET.

Adrian, (@adibolb), Jaumes (@JaumeJornet ) and I had the first xALEc session on December 12th, 2011.
The session was like a physical open space session: a great conversation, not focusing precisely on the proposed subject. We collected a few tips and answers to questions we hadn’t asked ourselves before the beginning of the session.

So it works, and please find below some remarks and a few improvements to consider for the next ones.

  • Twitter is the best place for sharing links before the sessions using the #xALEc tag.
  • Sessions can be proposed anytime during the day.
  • The session starts at 9:30 pm.
  • Leaders may prefer to open the Google Hangout with extras, 5 minutes before the session,
  • The language barrier will broken after 5 minutes of conversation (enjoy each accent). We are not there to speak English but to improve our Agile/Lean knowledge.
  • Yes, talking directly online to someone, you have never met is not always easy. But, don’t be shy, we are all beginners at this.
  • It is better to share something visual like a drawing.
  • Avoid sharing too much text and too many links, because attendees will read it and not participate.
  • Leaders must make sure the visual document is shared with all attendees at the beginning of the session.
  • The session should consist of an introduction and an activity on the shared document: e.g. select some parts of the drawing to emphasise the explanation.
  • The rules of the Open space will be applied. Well, your two feet could be replaced by your finger on your mouse.

I shared publicly the xALEc Google Hangouts circle. Please tweet me, @FranckDepierre or use Google+, if you want to join.
