Peggy George and I facilitated a poster session on June 29th at ISTE. We planned on sharing how educators can host their own webinars but our conversation soon took a different route. People stopped by our booth and asked about what Classroom 2.0 LIVE was all about. We got to share the Classroom 2.0 Ning and information about our show and website with lots of new people. Several people learned about LearnCentral and how they could have access to a free Elluminate room through the free ‘Host Your Own Webinars’ LearnCentral group during our poster session.
Elluminate has some awesome and exciting things planned in future releases. The latest version 10 release has some new bells and whistles designed for special needs populations with more accessibility features to enable hearing and vision impaired users to participate in Elluminate sessions. Although this blog post isn’t a plug for Elluminate, Peggy and I have become passionate about sharing how to host your own webinar using the Elluminate platform. It was so exciting to meet so many of our faithful attendees in person at ISTE and put a face with a name and share ways we can help support them as users or moderators of Elluminate and the LearnCentral community.
Saturday, July 10th at 12pm EST Steve Hargadon will join us for a discussion post ISTE. You are invited to join us. If you didn’t attend ISTE in person, we would still love for you to join in the discussion for preparation of future virtual events via Elluminate. Your experiences and interests are valued and important to planning future remote sessions. Save the date and be sure to join us this Saturday.
