Is there any cost involved?

How do I participate?

To make your participation as convenient as possible, we encourage all presenters to provide a podcast version of their presentation to be included in the conference podcast web feeds. Artifacts from past presentations have been presented using a variety of sites including: YouTube, TeacherTube, Animoto, SlideShare, Google Video, Viddler, RockYou. You participate by downloading the presenter's content, reviewing it and then posting feedback or comments on the presentation posting. You can also get involved syncronously during the weekly Elluminate sessions. These provide an opportunity for you to listen live to the week's presenters, ask questions directly and visit with other participants (virtually, speaking). IT's a good idea to watch this conference feed for conference information.

How do the LIVE sessions work?

We will have weekly LIVE Elluminate sessions so that conference participants can interact and ask questions of the Keynote speakers and other presenters. A link will be posted to the blog that will give you access to the weekly Elluminate sessions. If you are unable to attend the Elluminate chats, we will make an archive of the event available. Click here for a demo of Elluminate.

What time are the online sessions?

Other than the LIVE Elluminate chats, all of the sessions will be pre-recorded for you to watch/listen to at your convenience. The Elluminate session times will all be published on the conference blog well in advance of each event. Watch the blog for more details. Instructions will be posted on the main conference EVENTS page.
