Elluminate is to provide the University of Alberta with ‘Elluminate Live! Academic Edition’ software, for campus-wide implementation on the Sun Microsystems platform. The software will support distance learning programs in a variety of disciplines, including education, nursing, community health, and business.
Elluminate’s application, which will add online synchronous content to the learning programs, was selected because of its ease of use, reliability on all types of internet connection and comprehensive instructor toolset.
Elluminate Live! enables us to take another significant step forward in enhancing the learning experience. It’s also one of the tools that can be used in a number of areas other than teaching, such as research collaboration and campus-wide help desk support, said Marika Bourque, associate chief information technology officer at the University of Alberta.
