Collaborate Version 12 (formerly Elluminate Live!)

Haven’t tried Collaborate, formerly known as Elluminate Live!, yet? It’s an amazing way to communicate real-time with your students online.
Think of the possibilities—online office hours, study sessions, class meetings…
You can chat (type), speak with audio to the class, use a webcam to transmit your video to the group, show a PowerPoint, webpage, video, draw together on a whiteboard…
You can also record the whole session with just a click, and paste the link to the recording in your online Canvas course for students who missed the session or for students who would like to review it.
 
We will discuss:
·  Creating a session
·  Session settings
·  Optional components such as microphones, headsets, webcams, digital stylus/tablet
·  Browser security settings and other issues when connecting to a session
·  Hand raising
·  Polling
·  Responding to a poll question
·  Using emoticons to show laughter, confusion, applause, or disapproval
·  Chat
·  Whiteboard
·  Presenting a slideshow
·  Adjusting your audio and video settings
·  Desktop and application sharing, leading a webtour
·  Transferring files
·  Recording a session for students to view later
·  Online tutorials and resources to teach participants how to use Collaborate
·  Possible uses for teaching, conferences, office hours…
