But the guys have made a sensible decision to use Elluminate instead, as it requires less bandwidth (we only have 2Mb ps in the hotel conference venue) and the audio and streaming media systems are superior and will be a little less prone to problems. Tags: Elluminate Live Second Life There has been a change in strategy. I'm a little disappointed we can't use Second Life to do a Second Life panel - it would have been a challenge and quite risky due to technical limitations.

Here’s a short presentation that includes: The one powerful change that will make our elearning a lot more effective. A quick demo of action mapping.

I didn’t announce this one because it was my first time flying solo as both a presenter and moderator in Elluminate. Need to design lean, lively elearning?

It’s about 45 minutes long and shows how to use action mapping to quickly identify which content and activities will be most useful.

My Workflow with Synergy

Experiencing eLearning

When I liveblogged the TCC 2008 conference , I always had the Elluminate presentation up on my primary screen (my desktop computer) and my blog on my laptop. Synergy lets me easily switch focus back to the Elluminate screen to join the backchannel chat or answer a poll; you just move your mouse over to the other screen and type away. This is a follow-up to my post on the features of Synergy. My last post covered how Synergy works.

Synchronous Software Scavenger Hunts

Experiencing eLearning

Application training via a synchronous tool like WebEx, Adobe Connect, or Elluminate too often ends up with passive learners. If I’m doing software application training, doing it as a webinar isn’t really my first choice. I’d rather create a bunch of Captivate tutorials and job aids to let people learn at their own pace, when they need to use the skills. Just-in-time, interactive training that supports or simulates actual tasks is my first choice.

19 Tips for Effective Online Conferences

Tony Karrer

We’ve used Elluminate as our webinar system. Thanks to Scott Skibell , we recorded the sessions directly off the web, i.e., outside of Elluminate and he produced great recordings. 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.

Web Conferencing Services

Tony Karrer

I found a Google doc via delicious that I have a feeling wasn't intended to be public, but it has such a wonderful comparison of the various web conferencing tools that I felt compelled to copy it here and as a new Google Doc in case the document goes away. I also noticed that Wikipedia has a page - Comparison of web conferencing software - but it doesn't have pricing and a few other columns.

First Impressions of TelePresence

We decided to mute, similar to what we would do with a big group in a web conferencing tool like WebEx or Elluminate. I recently participated in my first TelePresence meeting. 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.
