Elluminate upgrade on 10/10

During a scheduled LMS maintenance window this weekend, Elluminate will be upgraded to version 9.5. The most important changes to this version of Elluminate are:

  • Improved stability and performance which will correct the problems we have been having with web service reliability.
  • Switch to a different database for better performance and flexibility.

Additionally, you’ll notice some cosmetic changes in the Elluminate interface and a few cool new features. For an overview of the changes in v9.5, see What’s New in Elluminate Live! v9.5 (pdf document).

For the most part, you should not have any trouble moderating your sessions in the upgraded Elluminate Live! interface. However, the Elluminate meeting creation interface has quite a different look, and has several exciting new features.   We have a step-by-step handout as well as a training video available to help you:
