Knowledge Bank Online Events is an online professional development program for Victorian teachers. It is organised around a free online meeting space in a program called Elluminate. Activities in Elluminate are live and interactive – you use your own computer to listen, speak to others and participate in activities.
Knowledge Bank offers a series of topical online seminars to encourage teachers and educators to share their innovative practice with their peers. The seminars are free but you need to register.
The image below shows what an Online Event looks like in an Elluminate “room”. You listen to the presenter speak and look at the images they display on the whiteboard. Events are interactive so you can speak with a microphone attached to your computer, share files, draw or write on the whiteboard and communicate by raising your hand to ask a question, laugh, applaud etc.
