Elluminate Free


Luckily I can change the time stamp on this post, so it still looks like I posted in the morning.

If you are curious about those web-conferencing products that allow participants to chat, write on a whiteboard, share desktops, and the like, you can download a free version of Elluminate Live, limited to 3 participants. I think it’s a good way to see what it’s like to moderate such a session. I see this limited version useful for office hours, tutorials, or collaborating on documents in real time, but when you all can’t get together.

I’ve tried it with Sara, even though she’s just on the other side of the office, and it works pretty well. There was some lag in a video presentation, but participants wouldn’t be aware of that, as we were. Still, for free, it is a good way to see how the technology works. Of course, they have more advanced and more costly products.

  1. Thanks for the Elluminate vRoom endorsement, Barbara! We appreciate it. Did you know that you can have your vRoom for as long as you like and add more free rooms as needed? We think this is a pretty unique offer.

    Also wanted to let you know that Elluminate Live! V8 is coming out soon. We’re providing a sneak peak of the new version on 5/17, 2pm EDT. Here’s the link to register if you are interested(http://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/event/description?instance_id=7539).

    My favorite new feature is the personal note taking, which can be added to/edited during playback and sent to a file as well. Really cool!

  2. Hi Barbara,

    This is Karel Lukas at Yugma (http://www.yugma.com). We enables you to instantly web confererence with up to 10 other people to share information and collaborate in real-time. Great thing is that it works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Give it a try some time. I think you’ll find it to be super easy to use.

  4. The good point is it doesn’t consume that bandwidth during collaborations but still its compatiblity and streaming across Mac platform are the main issue. I have http://www.rhubcom.com turbomeeting for the webinars and interactive meeting purposes which allows users to attend meetings from any of the known platforms.
