    What is Elluminate?Elluminate is web conferencing software, often used by other education providers and government offices to hold presentations and showcases. It is not currently supported by DET, however, you might like to attend something in Elluminate so this Quick-e should get you started.

    Functionality wise, Elluminate sits somewhere between Bridgit and Adobe Connect. You will need speakers and a microphone, a web camera is not necessary.

    The Elluminate software needs to be downloaded prior to the session. There is a configuration room where you can download software, do a system check, access guides, hints and tips and even listen to recordings about how to use and moderate in Elluminate. Make sure you do all this well in advance of the session!

    We also suggest that you test your headset and microphone before entering the conference in your computers Control Panel.

    Where can I find more? Elluminate support site http://www.elluminate.com/support/index.jsp
