Elluminate for online teaching
Glad to hear Loughborough have settled on Elluminate Live – I’ve used it several times and I’m hardly a “power user” but it just works really well with a really low problem rate, even with international delegates.
My one piece of advice would be – everybody thinks their mic will work without checking it first – it almost never does but the “Wizard” on the software is excellent. We always loose about 10 mins at the start of every online seminar we run.
BTW – I’m running a new series of seminars (free 1-hour rich media for busy people) soon – details will be here soon:
So far it will be Open Educational Resources (OERs), then an EE2010 conference hi-lights special around July with more to be annonced later.
