Preparing for the Teleconference Online Workshops

The DataTools Teleconference Online Workshops use Elluminate, a Web-conferencing software. This allows particpants to see the facilitator's computer as the analysis techniques of an EET chapter are demonstrated. If needed, the DataTools Team can also view individual particpant's comptuters, assisting with technical difficulties.


During the workshop session, we will be using the telephone to communicate with each other. That way if your computer crashes, we will still be connected.

Prior to each workshop, you will be asked to complete some tasks on your own ahead of time. If you have any difficulties getting ready, please contact us for assistance.

    Elluminate Configuration Check

  • We have found that school firewalls can sometimes prevent participants from accessing Elluminate. To test your ability to connect to an Elluminate Classroom, click the link below. You can ignore the instructions for configuring your audio. We will be using the telephone, rather than Elluminate to talk to each other.
  • On the day of the workshop, you will log-in to a different Elluminate virtual classroom space.
