Hi.. I am new to Elementary School 2.0 and thrilled to have stumbled across it. Excited about the prospects of connecting with other elementary tech teachers around World. Looking forward to sharing ideas and improving my skills as an elementary teacher.
I don't know if Ellumianate allows for embedded media.
I think the whiteboard tools are very simliar. Wiziq doesn't require software download (web based), Elluminate does require software download. Elluminate is Java based, Wiziq is Flash based. Elluminate has app sharing, Wiziq does not yet.
With your interest in Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.
