2011 Global Education Conference Volunteers


2011 Global Education Conference Volunteers

Discussion and email group for volunteer moderators for the 2011 Global Education Conference.  You must join this group to receive important email updates.


A HUGE and special thanks to you volunteers for the 2011 Global Education Conference! Here are some notes as we get closer:

SPECIAL NOTE.  The presenter and moderator links for sessions are posted here:  Please DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OR SHARE THIS PAGE, and you should only use these links to enter rooms you have been assigned to moderate.  If you find you are having any difficulties, you can keep your assigned room open and also open the lounge room to ask for help.

1.  The times you signed up to volunteer can be seen on the "SESSIONS AND SCHEDULE" page for your time zone, toward the bottom of the page.

2.  We still need more volunteers!  If you can encourage someone to help us, send them to for information.  And you can sign up for more time slots, we'll express appropriate appreciation!

3.  Make sure you have gone to a live training or watched one of the recordings!  We need to make sure you're aware of specific advice we're giving presenters as they use Blackboard Collaborate this conference.

4.  During the conference, please come into the volunteer "lounge" room 15 - 30 minutes before your sessions begin. From the lounge a volunteer coordinator will ask you to moderate a specific upcoming session.

The public links to all sessions are in the calendar listings and also here (which you can share).

6.  If you find you have the ability to volunteer for times you didn't sign up for, just come into the lounge room and let us know you're available!

See you online!

Sign Up to Moderate Sessions!

Thank you so much for volunteering to help with the 2011 Global Education Conference! And one of the most helpful things that you can do would be to serve as a volunteer moderator in one or more sessions during the conference!

All conference sessions are held in Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate), and while we train presenters in the program and ask them to be responsible for their own session, it really helps to have someone else in the room who can provide additional support.

If you are familiar with Elluminate, Blackboard Collaborate will be VERY fast to learn. If you're not familiar with either, we'd love to train you. In either case, we are holding one-hour training sessions for presenters and volunteer moderators, and can give you lots of help to getting up to speed!

To sign up on the moderator calendar, please go to Once you're signed up, we encourage you to grab the volunteer "badge" at and display it proudly!

To see the training schedule, recorded versions, and links to other printed/recorded training material, go to

Volunteering for this conference was a great experience. Will there be opportunities for us, volunteers. to get together and debrief? Volunteer management is what I've done for a living so I can also help with that if you'd like. Thanks!

Yes I am waiting for Reina to sent me new hours because the one she sent Steve was not able to accomodate.

Comment by Reina Cortellezzi Lagos on November 15, 2011 at 8:10pm

Hola. No sé qué ha sucedido, sólo pido que se me diga si puedo o no presentar mi ponencia. La misma fue aceptada, lo que no se ha registrado el horario. En una segunda instancia presenté tres horarios alternativos. Espero una respuesta definitiva para no molestar más. Saludos desde Uruguay

I think it has been sorted out - 9:00 EST

Comment by Danielle Hartman on November 15, 2011 at 8:25am

9am what time zone Susan?  

Comment by Susan van Gelder on November 14, 2011 at 8:51pm

Just found I cannot moderate a 9:00 am session  on Wednesday for which I signed up. I'd be happy to do another time and will sign up now.

Comment by Danielle Hartman on November 14, 2011 at 8:48pm

I can possibly help out (depends on timing) if there are any open sessions.

Comment by Steve Hargadon on November 14, 2011 at 6:26pm

@Kim:  I'll take care of the Tuesday ones.  We do assign you to specific sessions, it's just we don't know exactly how many volunteers we'll have at any given hour, and what special needs will be.  Thanks for volunteering!

Comment by Kim FLINTOFF on November 14, 2011 at 7:41am

I still have Tuesday sessions assigned to me - (that's Tues in my calendar GMT+8) - these are the ones I signed into in error.  I will not be there for them.  I am available for the Wed and Fri sessions I signed into.  

Got to concur with Terry - it isn't obvious that we aren't assigned a specific session - I only discovered Steve's response here - doesn't seem to be obvious elsewhere.

Comment by Steve Hargadon on November 10, 2011 at 10:13am

@Terry:  you will come into the lounge, then be assigned a speaker at the time.  Thanks!
