Elluminate Live! (eLive) is a synchronous communications tool that can facilitate communication and collaboration between staff and students. eLive allows you to:

  • talk online in real time
  • chat via text online
  • share videos, presentations and applications.

Getting started with eLive

Before you participate in your first eLive session it is vital that you work through the eLive set-up guidelines at least 24 hours before the session. This allows time to resolve any technical issues and ensures that you can participate in the session.

  • eLive set-up guidelines - essential steps for setting up your computer, headset and microphone and configuring your personal or workplace firewall.
  • Accessing an eLive session
  • eLive FAQs
  • Netiquette- the online environment is great for 'networking' and getting to know one another, and the rules of common courtesy or 'netiquette' apply here as they do in any classroom or public area. The netiquette section is essential reading for anyone communicating online.

Using eLive

In an eLive session, staff are moderators and students are participants by default. However, there may be times when you will be made a moderator in an eLive session. The role you have in an eLive session will affect what you can do during that session. For example, only moderators can upload PowerPoint presentations and record sessions.
