Presenter Support

 Colleague 2 Colleague SIDLIT Steering Committee is excited to welcome you to our first-ever virtual SIDLIT Conference on Strategic Design for Effective Learning August 5-7. Follow @SIDLIT on Twitter for conference announcements and updates! Share your experience with #SIDLIT2020.

We have strategically selected the following cutting edge technologies to facilitate this event:

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.


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.


Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and the Social will be held in a platform called Unhangout. This open-source platform facilitates small group discussions in breakout groups using chat or video conferencing.

When you click the link in Sched to join the event, you will be prompted to create an account. It is quick and simple using your email, Google, Facebook, or Twitter.
