I am on a cycling trip until tuesday and will not have access to the internet - will there be notes posted from Monday's webinar?

The email I just got says, "1) Download and install the Elluminate platform so you can attend all webinars. Use this easy one-click installation wizard." But the link does not take me to an installation wizard and I cannot find the correct link to download Elluminate.

Hi Becca - There will be archives of all webinars posted, so you can hear one or all of them after the fact. Have a great trip!

Hi Mary -

Can you answer the following questions:
1) What kind of computer do you have?
2) What browser version are you running? (eg Internet explorer 7)

3) Can you describe what happens when you click this link?

http://www.elluminate.com/Support/?id=62

Specifically, does it ask you for access to your computer?
If yes, what Java version are you running? (Should appear under Step 1)

thanks!

Just to let everyone know, I received a private message from Mary above.

She writes:

When I clicked on the link below it said Congratulations.... so I guess I am good to go. I just expected Elluminate to be listed in my program list or on my desktop and it isn't.

Thanks,

Just wanted to pass this along in case anyone else is wondering. The "Congratulations" is the indication that you're set. Once you attend the webinar, you will see the Elluminate name/icon in your program list.

thanks!

Hi,
I hope that this can still workout. I will be in Sweden (competing in swimming & synchronized swimming) during the last week of camp. I have already checked that the hotel has a computer/business center, so I think I'll be able to access most of the components of the camp. I am just concerned that I may not complete my assignments that last week (the actual competition is from Aug. 2 thru 6th).
Thanks.

Hi Corby -
The last week of the camp will be working with small groups to refine your projects. So if you can find time to meet with others on your team, you should be fine. Good luck in your competition!

I am wondering if this camp can be counted as credit for professional development for teachers.

Hi Lind - Great question. We debated this, but for this first camp, no. If this one is successful, offering pd credit is something we might offer in the future. Looking forward to your participation in the camp!

Is elluminate actually a download? I would like to use my school laptop, but I am blocked from "downloading" any applications onto it.
