System Requirements

 

Elluminate Live! (Classroom Software) Client

Minimum System Requirements  and   Environmental Requirements

 

We recommend a hard-wired connection (users who have wireless laptops are the most susceptible to instability and synchronisation problems, and your being wireless may cause OTHERS in the class to have problems, as well, which isn't very fair).

 

Latencies (Ping) can be tested here: http://www.speedtest.net and http://www.pingtest.net

Post us your results if you are unsure :-)

NOTE ALSO:  Memory resident programs (like Skype, MSN, Communicator, Limewire) would best be turned off, for freeing up system resources, and also for better security and removing the likelihood of distractions.  We suggest setting up a separate "Schoolwork only" account, with all potential distractions uninstalled and / or disabled !

 

 

Environmental Requirements

 

Students (and their siblings and the rest of their family) need to be told of the importance of NO DISTRACTIONS while in class. 

 

Please ensure that:

other communication software is turned off (for example, MSN, Yahoo Communicator, emails, other web browsers);

that the student's mobile phone is turned off;

and that distractions such as background music are kept to a minimum (certainly we would recommend having NO TV and NO music on in the same room while lessons are going on - when speaking on the mic, the teacher and other students frequently cannot hear what is being said, which is distracting).
