As well as being an excellent ‘lecture capture system’, the DEECD’s Elluminate website hosts a number of very interesting presentations that have been saved for access at a later date.
One of these presentations is Steve Hargadon’s Web 2.0 is the future of education. (You must have Elluminate installed, Victorian educators can download this for free from here. Elluminate lite is also available to other schools free for one year; for the free program click here.) This presentation gives a great outline of Web 2.0 in education and why it is necessary for 21st Century learning.
Access is available to other Web 2.0 presentations, click here for them. Elluminate is a fantastic tool that allows archiving of presentations and so access at a later date for people who couldn’t attend or those who want to revisit the presentation is open and easy.
