  1. 1. Using Elluminate for Events<br />Jamie Renton<br />Graduate Student and ALA Student Chapter Chair<br />School of Library and Information Science<br />San Jose State University<br />
  2. 2. Elluminate Web Conferencing<br />San Jose State University (SJSU) School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) <br />Entirely online program<br />Elluminate Web Conferencing software for classes, document sharing, meetings and events<br />Elluminate as a Tool<br />Meetings where everyone is “in the same room” at the same time sharing content<br />Break-out rooms for private meetings<br />Everything you can do at in-person meetings you can replicate virtually with Elluminate<br />
  3. 3. Two Example Events<br />Banned Books Week (BBW) <br />In-person event at SJSU for many years<br />Celebrating the freedom to read<br />Beginning in 2008, a parallel event was hosted on Elluminate for remote participants<br />Resume and Interview Workshop<br />In-person event at SJSU for many years<br />Panel interviews, resume reviews, mock interviews<br />I saw this as another opportunity to use Elluminate<br />Accommodate those students that can not come to SJSU’s campus<br />
  4. 4. Banned Books Week event<br />Live Event <br />Guest speakers, games, readings from banned books, raffle drawing, and light refreshments<br />Elluminate Event <br />Everything included in the Live Event - with any refreshments you wish!<br />Speakers and participants across the US<br />Video conferencing and web tour allow live readings, prerecorded readings, and expanded content display<br />Used random.org for raffle prize<br />
  5. 5. BBW Elluminate Web Tour using You Tube video of volunteer Pat reading Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling<br />
  6. 6. Resume and Interview Workshop<br />In-person event has been very successful<br />Venue for students and recent graduates to meet with library professional volunteers to:<br />Listen to panel presentations <br />Review their resumes<br />Participate in mock interviews<br />I designed the virtual event to expand the workshop to accommodate students that aren’t geographically close to SJSU<br />Duplicated in-person format in Elluminate and recruited library professionals across the country to participate<br />
  7. 7. Panel Presentations<br />
  8. 8. Resume Interview Workshop Breakout Rooms<br />
  9. 9. Recordings and File Downloads<br />
  10. 10. Take Homes<br />Elluminate can enable any in-person event to be duplicated as a virtual event<br />Enables colleagues all over the world to participate<br />It saves money and time<br />Its green<br />It only takes a little imagination to make it happen!<br />
