For reference, or in case you didn't get it!
Thank you so much for volunteering to help at the Learning 2.0 Conference next week. You are SO appreciated!
The conference is being held in the Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) virtual teaching and learning platform. While presenters are responsible for being familiar enough with Collaborate to present, they often (almost always) appreciate help in their session to answer chat questions and if they get stuck or forget how to do something in Collaborate. This is where you can help!
You can sign up to help moderate sessions at http://learning20volunteer.youcanbook.me. You can help with one session or with many--either way, thank you!
Training sessions for those new to Collaborate or who want a refresher for this conference start tomorrow. The schedule and information are at http://www.classroom20.com/page/learning-2-0-training. The first of three live training sessions (you only need to attend one) is tomorrow. There will also be a recorded version after tomorrow's session (recommended only for those who are already familiar with Collaborate).
As a volunteer, we do have a "badge" you are welcome to display (and we'd love it if you'd link back to http://www.learning.20.com). The badge is at http://www.classroom20.com/group/2012-learning-2-0-volunteer-group/....
There will be a special page with links to enter the session rooms during the conference, entering with which will give you moderator privileges. This will get updated the day before sessions start, and will be at http://www.classroom20.com/page/learning-2-0-presenter-and-voluntee.... We'll cover this in the training.
Also for reference during the conference, the lounge (or "green room") for presenters and moderators will be at http://www.l20.me. Again, more information in the training, but keep this email handy.
Thanks for your help! Can't wait to be part of this with you! Be sure to promote the conference--it is free, and there are still presentation slots available.
See you online,
Chair, Learning 2.0
