  2. 2. STEP 1: The “Elluminate Session Invitation” NOTE: There is NO website to go to, NO password, and you choose your own “username” To get started, you need to look for an e-mail based “invitation” that contains an internet URL. T his will arrive within a hour of the actual conference . It will look something like this:. Please DO NOT share this invitation URL with anyone. Doing so may allow individuals who have not paid a registration fee to participate and may result in other registered participants being excluded from the session.
  3. 3. STEP 2: Starting Elluminate a) Click on the URL link contained in the invitation. b) This will result in a number of pop-up windows. Please follow the directions and “accept” any security certificates. c) After completing the initiation sequence, do the following to bring the Elluminate platform to the “front” or “foreground” IBM: Use “alt+tb: to scroll through open programs MAC: Use “command+tab” to scroll through open programs You should see a program icon similar to the following:

These include: a) seeing the names of all participants. b) raising your hand to ask a question. c) respond to something that the presenter has done/said (emoticons) d) respond to a quick poll question asked by the presenter (yes/no) e) to “step away” from the session (for a few minutes) The window will look something like the image on the right.

  9. 9. STEP 6: CHAT Window Use this window to send a text message to the presenter, moderator(s), all participants or just one or two (private) participants. ( It is located immediately below the “PARTICIPANT” window in the default layout.) This is where you type your message Use this pull-down menu to send a text message to: a) Everyone in the session, b) The moderator(s), or c) one or more participants (private). NOTE: To do the later, you will need to select that participant in the “PARTICIPANT window. Presenters – Use this button to send an “announcement” to all participants
  10. 10. STEP 7: The AUDIO controls (Microphone) This is where you will turn ON/OFF your microphone to speak NOTE: While it is possible to have multiple microphones open at the same time, we are initiating a ONE-AT-A-TIME policy during the conference! If multiple participants wish to speak at the same time, we will instead utilize the “Hand raised” feature. This places a number/numerical value next to participant names to indicate the order in which people raised their hand. Microphone ON Microphone OFF Numerical order of hands-raised
