Smile UNCONFERENCE WEBINAR: E-Learning in your classroom - Your voice: Wednesday, 10 September, 3.45-4.45pm

This webinar is an open/unconference event. It was a hit last year and we're offering this informal event again this year. We invite you to share one e-learning activity you have facilitated in your classroom, as well as any benefits and outcomes for your learners. You determine the contexts and content (5 Minutes). Guest presenters: YOU! 

This is a very relaxed affair and we'll provide all the support needed (prior/during) to present in a virutal webinar.

This webinar will be supported by a thread in the Enabling e-Learning | Teaching group.

Prior to the day

You will need to ensure your computer is ready to launch a desktop application to view this workshop in Blackboard Collaborate (formerly called Elluminate). If you have already used Blackboard Collaborate before, you will not need to do the following.

Step 1:

Please go to Blackboard Collaborate First Time Users/Checking system requirements and see if you have the green tick. If you do, congratulations you may move to the next part of the set up. If you see the red cross you need to follow the instructions to download Java Web Start.

If you are unable to do this, please contact your own technical support people immediately. If you can download it and the red cross changes to a green tick, then it's time to move onto the next step.

Step 2:

Join the Configuration Room to test your connection and configure your audio. To view the hardware and software pre-requisites for Blackboard Collaborate, please visit www.elluminate.com/support


We recommend you login from at least 3pm to give yourself time to trouble shoot. Contact your admin support in the first instance if you are having issues. It is recommended you wear a set of headphones, headsets or echo cancellation microphone/speakers to help avoid any sound issues. Please feel free to contact Tessa prior to 27 May, if you have any queries.

Please note: Any technical set-up to access Blackboard Collaborate, needs to be sorted by your organisation's technical support team well before this time. 

We look forward to connecting with you during this time.
