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.

This makes me wonder what these systems will start to look like in a couple of years and whether folks like Elluminate will be able to compete Just saw this : Earlier this month, Microsoft announced it was finally adding voice capabilities to its Live Communication Server. And now Cisco is adding hosted collaboration to compete with Microsoft's hosted service known as Live Meeting.

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.

Collaboration Tools

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below.

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.

This conference has been run for a few years now and is tentatively scheduled for November 15-17 this year.

Profile Photo

Tony Karrer

Add it to your Elluminate and WebEx profiles. I'm actively engaged in all kinds of sites that can be roughly described as social networking. Through this, and because of my My LinkedIn Open Connection Approach where I basically treat LinkedIn like a really big business mixer, I have lots of opportunity to "meet" new people online. My guess is that about 25% of the people I run into do not have a profile photo.

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.

A quick glance at the agenda shows Jay Cross, Jane Hart, Harold Jarche, Tony Karrer, Clark Quinn, George Siemens, and many more. Very cool.

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.
