Using Elluminate for Collaboration
You have the ability to create your own Web Meetings with the ePortfolio system. This allows you to collaborate with other students. There are two ways you can do this: from a course portfolio and from a personal portfolio.
Sign into UAS Online and go to your course. Click on the Portfolio link in the blue navigation bar at the top of the screen as shown below.
If you haven't created your portfolio you will see the following screen. Click on the "Create new portfolio page" button.
The "Manage Page" settings are located in the upper right corner of your new portfolio:
Click on "Manage Page" and got to the "Content" tab. Scroll down and open the WebMeeting area with the +/- sign in the right-hand corner. Check the box "Display a web meeting on this page" and hit the "Save" button.
Go back to your portfolio page by following the links at the top of the page. You will now see the addition to your portfolio page for your Web Meetings. You will see the "Moderate Now" link while users will see the "Participate Now" link.
Access: Tell participants to go to your course and click on the "view" link under your name on the Class List. They can then click on the "Add to Bookmarks" so they will be able to access it the next time from the Start Page for UAS Online in the ePortfolio list.
The creation process is the same as described above, however, because the web meeting is not in a class portfolio, you must provide Review Access for participants by adding their name to the Reviewers from your Manage Page/Security Settings tab. You will also have to send them the URL you need help please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org.
