This is a virtual conference, with all sessions taking place online and through the Elluminate LIVE! program. You do not need to register to attend the conference or any of the sessions, but you do need to make sure that your computer is configured correctly to participate.
To check that your computer is ready for Elluminate, please go to http://www.elluminate.com/support
. "Step 1" will indicate if you have a version of Java that is compatible, and then "Step 2" lets you actually go into a test session. Please do this in advance of your attendance so that any troubleshooting you might have to do does not interfere from attending the session(s) you are interested in.
You do not need a microphone or webcam to participate. If you want to be able to ask questions of the speaker, you can use the chat feature in the program, or--if you do have a microphone--the speaker may allow for participants to ask questions using their microphones.
Each conference session will have a unique URL/link to enter the session. These links will be posted shortly before the conference starts, and will be found both in the individual listings in the SCHEDULE
or on the KEYNOTE
and SESSION listings
A note about encouragement. The goal of the conference is to help you make connections with other educators and students in order to increase opportunities for globally-connected education activities and initiatives. Because of this we've placed an emphasis on the conference being inclusive
and providing broad opportunities for participating and presenting. Some good number of our presenters have either not presented before or have not presented in Elluminate. Please encourage and support them--they are likely to be a little nervous!
We hope you enjoy the conference!
