Today for Day 4 we are gifting an HTML5 guide on how to deliver an amazing online conference to promote the dissemination of SoTL in your community. Online events don’t have to be a second-rate experience compared to an in-person meeting! Read about the benefits of holding events online, find top tips for planning an e-conference and discover innovative ways to seamlessly blend technologies to deliver an exciting experience for all delegates. Smita and Linnea share how they used their tech skills, their creativity, and their grit to pull together and run an online conference that was praised by its delegates for being fun and for being highly effective.
