  11. 11. Also available is a free trial</li></li></ul><li>Technical Requirements<br />
  12. 12. Skype<br />PROS<br />Free computer-to-computer voice and video calls.<br />Very affordable<br />Easy to setup and easy to use.<br />Great way to communicate one-on-one or with a small group.<br />CONS<br />Audio conference calls are limited to 25 people.<br />No way to video call more than one person. Video conferencing isn't available. <br />All parties must download and install the Skype software. <br />Some educational institutions have banned Skype due to bandwidth and security concerns.<br />Only a few features that support distance teaching/learning.<br />
  13. 13. Elluminate<br />Features<br /><ul><li>Cost based on seat or unlimited
  14. 14. Scalable to fit need

  19. 19. Elluminate<br />PROS<br />Interactive whiteboard<br />Share websites<br />Record sessions<br />Upload and archive files<br />Multimedia<br />Presentations<br />Multiple uses in educational setting<br />CONS<br />Costly– depending on the number of seating or unlimited<br />Use of headset is suggested to prevent feedback<br />
  20. 20. Comparison<br />Invite a guest speaker from anywhere in the world to talk to your students via Skype.<br />Conduct and record remote interviews.<br />Remote collaboration with colleagues, classmates and friends.<br />Lecture to your class remotely in crisis situations. <br />Hold virtual office hours.<br />24 hour support available<br />More costly<br />More features for educational environment<br />Multiple options for controlling participation and discussions<br />Sessions able to be recorded and archived<br />Online tutorials<br />
  21. 21. Recommendations<br />Based on the features available with Elluminate, I would recommend this particular program for video conferencing. The cost may be prohibitive for some, but the features of this program appear to be worth the cost.<br />Skype would primarily be used to discussion and less for presentation.<br />Elluminate has the capability for utilization in the classroom, professional development, interactive staff training, to name a few.<br />I would recommend Elluminate over Skype<br />
