What is Elluminate?
Elluminate Live is a tool that provides an online environment in which students meet with project leaders to watch them demonstrate different TIMS techniques, ask questions using voice over the Internet technology (VOIP), and interact with others. These workshops are similar to the face-to-face sessions offered in the TIMS labs at ITRE and UNCC. Elluminate will enable us to offer a variety of teaching opportunities without you ever having to leave your office.

The ones that we furnished you were $4.90, but seem to be a little higher quality than the initial ones that we received.
