If you are like me, I would expect you don’t spend a lot of time
reviewingt data charts embedded in quarterly reports. However, I do
want to highlight a table from the
LINGOS Q1-2008 Report (click cancel if you are prompted for a
password) that documents the rise in usage of Elluminate Live! over the
past two years. Between January and March, 2008, nearly 3,500 people attended
events on the Elluminate platform. This is an outstanding feat on
its own, but when you recognize that just two years earlier, less than
1,000 people attended synchronous on-line events over the entire
calendar year, this progress is especially impressive.
statistics underscore the rapid adoption on-line synchrronous
communication technologies among international NGOs. This is why I
will be devoting several posts over the coming month to Elluminate-related
issues. Next week, I will focus on the skills reguired to become
an expert Elluminate trouble-shooter (stay tuned for this especially
important post.) This week, however, I will focus on a relatively
new product named Elluminate Publish!
Elluminate Publish! allows users to convert your Elluminate Live! recordings into
formats that no longer require a web connection. For example, you
can create standalone recordings that can be sent to your learners
around the world via CD-ROM, e-mail attachments or loaded as files to
your intranet – no more wondering whether your user in Swaziland has the
bandwidth to view your session recording off of the server.
Furthermore, you create audio podcasts in just seconds from any recorded
Elluminate Live! session and store them on your content management
system, portal, or website.
One of the
many ways that the Elluminate company supports teh work of LINGOs member
agencies is by providign access to to Elluminate Publish! licenses at
the considerably reduced price of $50 dollars. For more information,
