What should I do prior to the conference, what should my presentation look like etc?
Most of these questions together with tips and hints can be found on this Presenters Checklist.
What format should my presentation take?
The conference sessions take place in Blackboard Collaborate(BbC) - a virtual conference room. It uses MS Powerpoint so presentations should be created in or converted to MS Powerpoint. Keynote presentations should be
converted to MS Powerpoint or each slide should be saved as jpgs. Jpg files can also be uploaded into BbC.
Note: We may be moving to a new platform in 2017. Details are forthcoming.
Do I load my Powerpoint presentation somewhere?
Close to the conference, we will send you a private link to your presentation room. You will only load your Powerpoint presentation, 30 mins or so before your presentation. Find the link to your room click on the link and you will enter Blackboard Collaborate - the virtual conference room. A moderator will help you upload your slides.
