Re: TDS: The Sanitation Ladder: Next Steps Discussion Follow-Up Webinar

I have just opened the page from the link above in my phone, clicked on the 'download' link and downloaded the MP3. It seems to work, although the sound quality is quite poor at times.

Whether this works will depend on internet connection speed and smartphone type - but on my (not very new) smartphone it works fine. Another method might be to email the mp3 to yourself (if you have email on your smartphone).

Re: TDS: The Sanitation Ladder: Next Steps Discussion Follow-Up Webinar

I can see how one can listen to them easily on one's computer. But how would one easily get these mp4 files onto one's smart phone or i-pod? Could someone who knows these things please advise? That would be ideal, because people can then listen to them on the train, in the car, while waiting in line somewhere etc.


The *.mp3 files are the same as normal audio (music) files. So the simple (and maybe unhelpful) answer is that you use the same method as when copying music from your computer to your mobile device (mp3-player, smartphone). Normally, any mobile device will have a USB cable, that allows you to connect it to your computer. How you then transfer the files will depend a bit on the brand of your device and the software you are using.

Re: TDS: The Sanitation Ladder: Next Steps Discussion Follow-Up Webinar

On a different note, I found the webinar very good, and i think that for future thematic discussions it would be a good idea to start with a "kick-of webinar". To me it seems that it would be an easy way to outline what the thematic discussion will be about. It would probably be a more accessible way for many people to get up to speed on the content of the upcoming discussion than reading a lot of documents.

Re: TDS: The Sanitation Ladder: Next Steps Discussion Follow-Up Webinar

If the audio files have been downloaded into the computer first, could use bluetooth to transfer the files. I think all computers & smartphones have bluetooth - no need to use internet connection which is helpful if internet connection is patchy & well, we get to contribute towards saving expensive internet bandwidth for the system as well. :-)

Re: TDS: The Sanitation Ladder: Next Steps Discussion Follow-Up Webinar

Dear Joe, Marijn and Sowmya,

thanks for the comments and the feedback. Marijn's suggestion of a "kick-off seminar" is similar to what was already discussed also within the secretariat.
So there will propably be some additional input before the next TDS webinar.

Regards,
Lasse (on behalf of the SuSanA secretariat)

Re: TDS: The Sanitation Ladder: Next Steps Discussion Follow-Up Webinar

Dear forum members,

the moderator of the thematic discussion, Roslyn Graham, conducted a very interesting interview with Patrick Bracken, one of the discussion leads, who was not able to attend the follow-up webinar.
You can now listen to and download the interview on the TDS page here (it is cut in three parts, all of them 9-10 MB big).
Thanks Patrick and Roslyn for making this available for us!

Regards,
Lasse (on behalf of the SuSanA secretariat)
