(ELive) is a synchronous web tool suitable for online collaboration, classrooms, demonstrations, meetings, web conferences, seminars and IT deployment, training and support. Moderators control interaction through a set of tools allowing control over participant’s ability to use the microphone, edit the whiteboard, import presentations or documents, message the group, use their webcam and interact with shared applications. Elluminate’s unique ‘Communication Collaboration Framework’ also permits full oversight and management of the performance of each participant’s connection and devices in each session.
