VIDM is a free online conference delivered using webconferencing technology – BigBlueButton.  All you need is a reasonably good internet connection and a computer, laptop, or mobile device. No download is required. BigBlueButton is also mobile friendly. No registration is required.

Each conference session has a unique Room ACCESS link, listed in the VIDM 2023 Programme – Simply click the link and JOIN the session.

We recommend using a headset for the best audio. Conference participants will only have access to microphones as requested during Question / Answer sessions.

If using a computer, BigBlueButton works best using browsers like Firefox or Chrome, especially with Mac systems. Safari is the best browser for mobile devices.
