Look to the right of this blog post ⇒ That is how much time you have to get ready for VIDM 2018.
Attending a 24 hour conference with concurrent sessions via webconference takes planning! When are you available? Which sessions are your “must attends” and which ones can you catch as recordings? Review the Programme Calendarand save the sessions to your calendar. Make note of the session room (1 – 2 – 3).
How about the webconferencing technology? Attend a drop in session to check out how Big Blue Button works. See below to find a session that works for you or look here. The moderators are there to answer any questions. Make sure your headset is working! ALL DROP IN SESSIONS are in Conference Room 3.
Accessing the drop in sessions is the same as accessing the conference. Give it a try and you’ll be ready for the conference.
