Colleague 2 Colleague SIDLIT Steering Committee is excited to welcome you to our second virtual SIDLIT Conference on Humanizing Learning at a Distance. Follow @SIDLIT on Twitter for conference announcements and updates! Share your experience with #SIDLIT2021.
We have strategically selected the following cutting edge technologies to facilitate this event:
We recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with a high-speed internet connection. You may experience limitations on how you can participate from a Chromebook, tablet, or mobile device.
Audio and Video:
We encourage turning cameras ON during sessions. However, a webcam is not required to participate.
A USB headset microphone will produce the best quality audio, but is not required.
Sched Conference Platform:
We are using a conference platform called Sched. When you register for the event through EventBrite, you will receive an email inviting you to set up your account on Sched. Once your account is setup, you will have access to all session information including session descriptions and speaker bios. You can select the sessions that interest you to create your custom schedule.
All presentation sessions will be conducted via Zoom; the meeting room URL for that session will be listed in the session description in Sched.
Managing Your Presentation Information in Sched
Sched hosts the conference schedule and allows presenters to upload presentation files for attendees. Please make your Sched profile public so that attendees can learn about you and your experience.
- Edit Profile – Edit your biography, add a picture, or add contact information.
- Upload Presentation Files – Share your presentation files with attendees from Sched.
Presentations will be delivered using Zoom video conferencing. Each session will have a moderator who will run the video conference and help moderate questions. You will be able to share your screen and interact with attendees through video, audio, and chat.
Consider involving your audience through polling, asking questions throughout the presentation, and using storytelling to relate to your audience.
- Sharing Content, Your Screen or a Second Camera
- Video Layout Options while Sharing Your Screen
- Managing Breakout Rooms
- Polling for Meetings
