Engaging students in large classes using Elluminate
Fuller, Joanne (2009) Engaging students in large classes using Elluminate. In Proceedings of ATEC 2009 14th Annual Australasian Teaching Economics Conference, School of Economics and Finance, Queensland University of Technology, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Queensland, pp. 84-97.
The advancement of online teaching environments during the past several years presents an exciting opportunity to extend existing teaching methodologies. The software package known as Elluminate is one example of a virtual classroom, facilitating the provision of real time interaction, collaboration and group meetings. This paper will examine the use of Elluminate in the teaching of large classes. The use of such technology for large classes is of particular interest, as large classes are often, unfairly, associated with a reputation for being impersonal as well as notions of conveyor belt learning. In this paper the potential to extend teaching and learning opportunities using Elluminate, in the context of large classes, will be explored. It will be shown that the use of technology such as Elluminate can assist in providing students with a more flexible means of accessing academic support, as well as allowing for a customised delivery of course content so as to focus learning outcomes.
