2. Elluminate Web Conferencing
San Jose State University (SJSU) School of Library and Information Science (SLIS)
Entirely online program
Elluminate Web Conferencing software for classes, document sharing, meetings and events
Elluminate as a Tool
Meetings where everyone is in the same room at the same time sharing content
Break-out rooms for private meetings
Everything you can do at in-person meetings you can replicate virtually with Elluminate
3. Two Example Events
Banned Books Week (BBW)
In-person event at SJSU for many years
Celebrating the freedom to read
Beginning in 2008, a parallel event was hosted on Elluminate for remote participants
Resume and Interview Workshop
In-person event at SJSU for many years
Panel interviews, resume reviews, mock interviews
I saw this as another opportunity to use Elluminate
Accommodate those students that can not come to SJSUs campus
4. Banned Books Week event
Live Event
Guest speakers, games, readings from banned books, raffle drawing, and light refreshments
Elluminate Event
Everything included in the Live Event - with any refreshments you wish!
Speakers and participants across the US
Video conferencing and web tour allow live readings, prerecorded readings, and expanded content display
Used for raffle prize
5. BBW Elluminate Web Tour using You Tube video of volunteer Pat reading Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
6. Resume and Interview Workshop
In-person event has been very successful
Venue for students and recent graduates to meet with library professional volunteers to:
Listen to panel presentations
Review their resumes
Participate in mock interviews
I designed the virtual event to expand the workshop to accommodate students that arent geographically close to SJSU
Duplicated in-person format in Elluminate and recruited library professionals across the country to participate
7. Panel Presentations
8. Resume Interview Workshop Breakout Rooms
9. Recordings and File Downloads
10. Take Homes
Elluminate can enable any in-person event to be duplicated as a virtual event
Enables colleagues all over the world to participate
It saves money and time
Its green
It only takes a little imagination to make it happen!
