Pre-Session Planning  and Check List

Practice before leading your first session! You should be comfortable with the content you are delivering as well as with Elluminate. Invite friends and coworkers to your practice sessions to make the sessions more realistic. Practice using the tools you intend to use during the session.

Contact the Instructional Design Center if you want training and/or tips for using Webmeeting successfully.

Tips for Success

  • Practice with two computers – one with you as the moderator and another logged in as a participant. As you work with your presentation, look at the participant computer to see what they are seeing.
  • Don’t try to use all the tools in your first session. Get comfortable with Elluminate and add tools over time.
  • Record your practice sessions and review your work.
  • Set your user profile to be shared with others in the session.

Before the Session Begins

Please note, not all of these will be relevant for your course.

  • Join the session 10 – 15 minutes before the session is scheduled to begin.
  • Ensure that you set your Connection Speed correctly when you first join the session.
  • Step through the Audio Setup Wizard to ensure your microphone and speakers are working properly.
  • Open web pages and applications needed for application sharing and screen captures.
  • Close all nonessential applications.
  • Load your content (i.e. PowerPoint, whiteboard, or image files).
  • Navigate to the first slide in your presentation and ensure that Follow Moderator is checked.
  • If you want people (up to four) to speak simultaneously go to Tools > Audio > Allow simultaneous talkers; this is turned off by default.
  • If desired, protect the whiteboard content in order to prevent attendees from saving and printing the whiteboard screens.
  • Create formal breakout rooms and load content if required.
  • Turn on the recording, if needed.

Practice
