Blackboard lit up by Elluminate

Onlignment

Last week, Blackboard, the largest commercial provider of learning management systems to the education sector, purchased not one but two web conferencing providers that also have a strong educational heritage – Elluminate and Wimba. It failed, I’m glad to say, and it will take Blackboard years of being terribly nice to repair its stinking reputation. I don’t know Wimba, but I have an affinity for Elluminate, which the eLearning Network and ALT uses to run its joint public webinars. Whether Blackboard provides it with much protection is dubious.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Clark Quinn

Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome." Our webinars have been successful by our standards and for the most part, we've been early adopters of the technology. If you've done webinars, you know that they are different to design and deliver successfully than other kinds of presentations and training. And I used to with Elluminate, but have not had much issue recently. Can you change out technically fairly easily?

19 Tips for Effective Online Conferences

Tony Karrer

We’ve used Elluminate as our webinar system. Just keep it in the webinar tool. Thanks to Scott Skibell , we recorded the sessions directly off the web, i.e., outside of Elluminate and he produced great recordings. Interaction to learn the webinar tool is always a good idea. I was recently asked me about my recommendations for conducting effective online conferences (virtual conference). They had attended the LearnTrends free online conference. This conference has been run for a few years now and is tentatively scheduled for November 15-17 this year.

Four Reasons you need structure for informal learning

Normally, our webinars are formal, tightly scripted and tightly controlled events that are planned out to the smallest detail; and I take great pride in the overwhelmingly positive feedback we always get.

Clive on Learning

Arriving late to an auditorium already full to the brim, I was forced yesterday to watch Itiel Dror's presentation to the ALT-C 2008 conference in Leeds from a second room where a video feed was being streamed in using Elluminate. Hearing a speaker, which is the most you can expect from a typical webinar, is a good but very much second-best option. Now I've seen Itiel speak a number of times, so my attention focused more on the effectiveness of the technology that was being used to deliver his presentation. Others I'd miss out on.

First Impressions of TelePresence

Experiencing eLearning

We decided to mute, similar to what we would do with a big group in a web conferencing tool like WebEx or Elluminate.

If you haven’t seen this technology, imagine videoconferencing, but life-size and set up so it feels more like you’re physically in the same room.
