The University’s contract with Elluminate Live! continues through August 31, 2008. There is no intention to renew the contract thereafter. Adobe Connect is the web-based video conferencing solution supported by IT@Johns Hopkins and is replacing Elluminate Live!.
Will Elluminate content (e.g., prior recordings) be accessible after August 31, 2008?
We do not have a clear answer on this from Elluminate. It is safest to assume that it will not be accessible after August 31, 2008.
How can I archive recorded content from Elluminate?
Elluminate now sells a desktop application called Publish (v1) which can take an existing Elluminate Live recording and create either an audio-only podcast, such as mp3, ogg vorbis, or wav audio file; or an “unplugged” stand-alone version of your recording (java .jar format) that is playable offline. The “unplugged” version plays back just as if you clicked on the recording URL, without requiring a network connection.
Publish v1 is available for 30 day trial at http://elluminate.com/publish/.
