Elluminate Announces General Availability of Elluminate Plan! V2

Elluminate, Inc., the leading provider of web, audio and video solutions for real-time online learning and collaboration, today announced general availability of the latest version of Elluminate Plan!, which enables educators to organize and package content and activities before the live, online session, automating routine tasks and allowing instructors to focus on delivering material, facilitating interaction, and optimizing the online learning experience.

With Elluminate Plan! V2, users can decrease session plan development time by 50%. The Elluminate Learning Suite™, which includes Elluminate Plan! as well as flagship product Elluminate Live!® for real-time interaction and collaboration and Elluminate Publish!™ for creating post-session content for mobile learning, supports the entire online instructional cycle.

Unlike other products designed for self-paced exploration, Elluminate Plan! was specifically developed for use in a multiuser, instructor-led, real-time eLearning environment. Instructors or course designers organize, script and package content and activities ahead of time. Then during the Elluminate Live! session, each action, like advancing to the next slide, creating breakout rooms, loading and presenting a quiz, web touring, or playing a multimedia file, is triggered with a single click.

Elluminate Plan! V2 enhancements include:

  • Significantly expanded command set to build in even more interactivity
  • Ability to set session parameters for easy automatic setup before class begins
  • Drag-and-drop construction and editing that facilitates plan development
  • Plan validation tool that enables self-service troubleshooting and cuts development time
  • Support for Spanish, French, and Brazilian Portuguese in addition to English

Elluminate Plan! ensures that content is delivered consistently across multiple sessions by multiple presenters. Institutions can package content and methodologies for real-time delivery by a wider group of instructors to facilitate the use of live eLearning and collaboration systemwide.

Elluminate Plan! is sold as part of the Elluminate Next>™ bundle, which also includes Elluminate Publish! for creating standalone files or industry-standard video files from Elluminate Live! recordings. In addition, Elluminate Professional Services offers the Next> Boot Camp, an intensive, one-day, onsite training session for Elluminate Plan! and Elluminate Publish!

“This spring, we conducted an Elluminate Plan! pilot with a group of volunteer middle school math teachers,” said Guadalupe Vander Ploeg, Sr. Manager, Teacher Effectiveness, K12, Inc. “Using the lesson plans we developed, each session was delivered multiple times by different teachers. As a result of the pilot, parents reported very high satisfaction rates with the additional support. We are currently analyzing student academic achievement scores and hope the additional instruction had a positive effect.”

“Although the Next> Boot Camp is designed as an onsite session, Elluminate Professional Services was very responsive in adjusting the training to meet the needs of our remote population," Vander Ploeg added. “Throughout the school year, we offered 10 boot camps of four online sessions each, which received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the teachers.”

"Live interaction in the virtual classroom is key to transforming teaching and learning on a global level, but the eLearning landscape is evolving,” said Maurice Heiblum, President, Elluminate, Inc. "Elluminate’s ’learning-edge’ solutions take educators beyond the virtual classroom with tools for session planning and post-session content distribution. Our solutions address activities across the entire instructional cycle, integrate with existing applications in the academic infrastructure, and scale easily from the department or campus level to complex, multicampus enterprisewide deployments.”
