Elluminate Live! Helpline
Some faculty at USF use a Synchronous Virtual Classroom software application called Elluminate Live!® to conduct live classes online. If your instructor uses this software and you need help using it, contact the USF IT Help Desk first and if they are unable to assist you, call the Elluminate Helpline toll-free at 866-388-8674, option #2.
Also visit the Elluminate Support Page to prepare your system for Elluminate use and the Elluminate Self Help Portal for answers to some of your questions. If you are still not able to resolve your Elluminate issue, send an email to your instructor who should then contact the Elluminate Admin Team at USF.
