Distance Learning Pilot Update : Elluminate Demo

To date, 15 faculty members have volunteered to be part of the Distance Learning Pilot using Elluminate, a product designed to create an interactive online environment optimized for teaching and learning. We will be piloting Elluminate until May 31.

Stephanie King, our Elluminate representative, will conduct an online demo for pilot participants  on Tuesday, March 1, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. in the HEDCO Technology Support Center (Brennan 80). The session will be recorded for those who can not attend (and for anyone else curious about Elluminate!)

For more details and to participate, see the pilot project invitation.
