Elluminate Live! Helpful Hints

Please complete these steps at least two days before the event so that any technical difficulties can be addressed:

1. Join Learning Times Australia ( if you haven't already (It's free).

2. Then go to and
(What can you see?In the left menu you should see Member Offices and you should be in the Learning Times Australia site.)

3. Click on Member offices: You'll see in the right frame a link to the Australian Flexible Learning Framework (AFLF) virtual office.

4. If you scroll down you'll also see Test Room and further down Guided TourEither of these latter two will set up you and teach you about Elluminate Live!
The software should then automatically download and install (about 5 minutes on broadband; 15 - 20 on dial up.)
If you can enter the AFLF or test room, enter text in the direct messaging area, write on the whiteboard, and the TALK button (lower left of screen) switches to ON THE AIR when you click it then you have a successful connection.
If the software does not automatically download and install it is likely that it is being blocked by a network firewall and you may need IT assistance.
