Let's Review Module 1
The Eyes in the Sky II web course is divided into three 4-week modules, each separated by a week. Between modules, we have set aside a week without new material. During these off weeks, we will be providing three opportunities to participate in Review/Q & A sessions with the instructors. The format for these optional sessions will be a combined teleconference/Web conference. Sessions will last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
NOTE: Start times are given in EST. Adjust accordingly for your home time zone!
Session 1: Saturday, February 27, 2010, 1 pm EST
Session 2: Monday, March 1, 2010, 7 pm EST
Session 3: Wednesday, March 3, 2010, 7 pm EST
Before the Review Session: Configure Your Computer for Elluminate Live!
Participants connecting to Elluminate from behind a firewall should consult the Access Guides . Elluminate (as with any remote demonstration/collaboration tool) requires you to download and install files. If you are unable to download files, or do not have administrative privileges to perform installations on your computer, you may not be able to participate in an Elluminate session without additional assistance. Plan ahead!
Elluminate Live! is a Java-based, real-time web collaboration environment built specifically for live multimedia collaboration. It offers features such as direct messaging, application sharing, file transfer, and interactive whiteboards. Before the review session, please follow these simple steps to configure your computer for Elluminate Live!
- Open the Elluminate Live! Java Web Start Installation page.
- Select your operating system. If Java Web Start is already installed on your computer, you will be directed to proceed to the next step. If not, follow the on-screen instructions for installing Java Web Start. NOTE: Macs running OS X are already configured to use Elluminate. Windows users should check their settings well in advance of an Elluminate meeting and may need to manually download and install Java Web Start.
- Click on the Start Elluminate Live! button to test your system configuration. This step is optional, but recommended.
Participating in the Review Session
To help you get connected on time, both the teleconference number and the virtual classroom space will be open 15 minutes before the session begins. Please double check the start time of the session for the time zone in which you will be calling. Past participants have been disappointed when they accidentally call into the session an hour early or an hour late!
