Another option for non-Victorian educators to consider is EdNA Groups  
- http://www.groups.edna.edu.au/.
This includes Moodle, rss feeds, a forum, mailing lists, etc, and also  
Live Classroom, which appears to be very similar to Elluminate. One  
feature that I like is the ability to "archive" a live session, so  
that people can join the group later and watch the presentation at  
their convenience.
 From memory, this has a 25 seat license, and is only for teacher  
professional development - not for interaction with students.
Use of EdNA Groups is free of charge to all education-related  
organisations.
Many of the teaching associations I work with are using EdNA mailing  
lists and some are finally starting to use Groups as well.

Cheers, Peter
