Look to the right of this blog post ⇒ That is how much time you have to get ready for VIDM 2021.
Attending a 24 hour conference with concurrent sessions + a pre-conference event all via online takes planning! When are you available? Which sessions are your “must attend” and which ones can you catch as recordings? Be sure to consider the Preconference event with WHO. Review the VIDM 2021 Programme Calendar and save the sessions to your calendar. Make note of the session room (1 – 2 – 3 – 4). Remember to check the link in each session listing for the time in your location — all conference sessions are scheduled using UTC.
How about the conference technology? Attend a drop in session to check out how BigBlueButton works (BBB is NOT set up like ZOOM). See below to find a session that works for you or look here. The moderators are available to answer any questions. Make note of the room for each drop-in session. Sessions marked with * will be available in Spanish or English as requested by the attendees. Headsets are strongly recommended!
Login instructions for BigBlueButton are here: Accessing the Conference 2021.
We can’t wait to meet you!
