Thank you for presenting at the 2010 Global Education Conference.
Training sessions on using Elluminate for the 2010 Global Education Conference will be held before the conference in multiple time zones. The information is in the next section, and review notes are below that. The conference and all trainings are taking place in Elluminate, so be sure to run the self-test for Elluminate
to make sure your computer is correctly configured.
For recorded or printed general
training for Elluminate, you are welcome to visit http://www.elluminate.com/Services/Training/Elluminate_Live!/?id=418
at any time. A specific training session for GlobalEdCon presenters was recently recorded, and if you can't attend one of the live session, please watch this
. A similar training, for someone who wants to go through everything again, was also recorded and is here
The absolute best thing you can do is to prepare
- Spanish: a version of the training in Spanish by Mayte Esponda is here.
- Romanian: training in Romanian by Adina Popa: Part 1 and Part 2
is to practice the use of Elluminate by taking advantage of the free 3-person Elluminate vRoom you get when you sign up at LearnCentral.org
, the free social network for educators provided by Elluminate.
During the conference, if you should need help or have a question, you can log into the conference "lounge" room, where we will have volunteers and at least one conference organizer who can help. The link to the lounge room will be updated on the Status Page
You can see the training times in your own time zone
by looking at the schedule page for your area.
You do not need to reserve a time to attend a training session, just click on https://sas.elluminate.com/m.jnlp?password=M.F33CE31C0ECB37DA8EC830769573BC&sid=2008350
to enter the session.
Before attending, do make sure your computer is configured to run Ellluminate by going to http://www.elluminate.com/support
. Elluminate is the software platform for the conference. You will get the best results if you have a headset with microphone for your presenting, and that you have tested in advance.
Can I show a Prezi presentation during my session?
There is no easy way to show a Prezi presentation in Elluminate right now. The great value of converting PowerPoint or other presentations to the Elluminate whiteboard is reduction in bandwidth needed to follow a presentation, which is especially important for those in areas who don't have high-speed internet. Elluminate does support uploading a series of graphic files to the whiteboard, and you can also create presentations in the free OpenOffice.org
program.How do I share my slides with participants who want a copy?
During the session, if you want to tell them, they can go to File > Save > Whiteboard and save your slide deck as a .pdf file. You can also post your slides at http://www.GlobalEducationWiki.com
