SPECIAL NOTE TO VOLUNTEER MODERATORS:  To get the special moderator links for your volunteer sessions, please go here: http://globaleducation.ning.com/group/2011globaleducationconferencevolunteers

If you are an experienced user of Blackboard Collaborate (or Elluminate) and you haven't signed up for a time to help moderate, and you are wanting to help, please use the signup link at http://library2011volunteers.youcanbook.me. If the conference has already started, you can just come directly into the coordinating lounge and offer to help! Here's the lounge link: https://sas.elluminate.com/m.jnlp?password=M.87C044D94276D789151AD22A0E687F&sid=2008350. Thank you!

Volunteers play a critical role in the conference, and we thank you for considering participation as a volunteer!  To be kept informed of volunteer opportunities and information, please join this network, and then join the conference volunteers group: http://globaleducation.ning.com/group/2011globaleducationconferencevolunteers.


Volunteers will help to advertise/promote the conference as broadly as possible, as well as being supportive on the site in connecting with others, responding to postings, and encouraging presenting. Additionally, we do have a crucial task for some of the volunteers during the conference:  helping moderate session in Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate). While all presenters will be required to take some basic training in Collaborate, sessions are much more likely to go well if there is a second person in the session to provide support, to watch the chat for questions, and to help make sure things to smoothly. We'll have some announced trainings coming up for both presenters and volunteers in September/October, and then we'll give you a chance to sign up by time slot for helping.

We are also looking for a small cadre of "super-volunteers" to help manage and oversee ALL the sessions and volunteers during different global shifts. If you are willing to be part of this elite team, email me directly at steve@hargadon.com!

A big THANK YOU to all who are able to help!
