Whether you’ve attended many virtual conferences before or this is your first one, you might have some questions about how it works. Here are your answers.

Where does Learning • Technology • Design 2017 take place?

LTD 2017 (held entirely online) has concluded. Get notified when registration opens for LTD 2018.

Who should participate?

Learning • Technology • Design is for anyone who works in the business of lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development and who wants to find better ways to engage learners and create lasting impact through the effective use of technology. The content is most suited for individuals at an intermediate to advanced level of knowledge when it comes to the use of technology to enable and enhance learning. While we do not necessarily discourage beginners from purchasing access to the recordings, we did not cover basic terminology (e.g., learning content management system or SCORM) or concepts (e.g., hybrid events or blended learning) during the sessions.

What types of sessions are included?

The conference includes general opening and closing sessions and concurrent breakout sessions. A virtual exhibit hall is also be available. See the Program section of the site for more information about the topics covered in the sessions.

  • General sessions: General sessions feature live-streaming broadcasts. You see the speakers and their slides. Sound is projected through your computer’s speakers (or through a sound system in your conference room should there be a number of participants). If attending the session live, you have opportunities to pose questions and make comments to the presenters via a chat feature.
  • Concurrent breakout sessions: Concurrent sessions feature speakers from across the country who present from their own offices or organizations. Concurrent sessions are provided through a Webinar format; you see slides and hear the speaker’s voice through your computer’s speakers (or through a sound system in your conference room should there be a number of participants). You do not see the speaker(s). If attending live, the sessions include interactive features such as polling questions, question and answer periods, and provide opportunities to interact with other participants via a chat feature.
  • Exhibit hall: The exhibit hall features booths where participating companies can share resources about their learning products and services and connect with the conference attendees. In addition to a virtual exhibit booth, participating companies also offer short demonstrations of their platforms or products. The virtual exhibit hall is an important way in which LTD delivers on the goal of helping conference attendees find new and better ways to engage learners and create lasting impact through the effective use of technology.

All live online sessions were recorded, and the recordings from Learning • Technology • Design 2017 were available to registrants through May 31, 2017.

What are the registration options?

LTD 2017 has concluded. Get notified when registration opens for LTD 2018.

Individual registration provides access for one person to view the recordings. The participating individual creates log-in credentials to access the conference Web site during registration.

An organizational registration provides access for up to five people at the same organization to view the recordings. One participating individual creates log-in credentials during registration. After registration, that individual will be e-mailed a coupon code to allow up to four colleagues to register at no additional charge. The five individuals from the organization may each log in and participate from their own computers, or some or all may gather to view recordings together.

What if I cannot attend the live conference?

All sessions are recorded and are available to those who registered before the live conference started or who purchased recordings-only access after the live online event. Recorded sessions include slides, handouts, and any other presentation materials provided in the live session. Recorded sessions were available to view an unlimited number of times until May 31, 2017.

What is the refund policy?

While no refunds are available for Learning • Technology • Design, you may transfer your registration to another individual.

Will I receive written confirmation of my registration?

Yes, registrants receive an e-mail confirmation shortly after registration.

If I purchase registration for my organization, how do my colleagues get access?

We will follow up within two business days of your purchase of an organizational registration with a coupon code good for four uses. This code can be shared with up to four colleagues so they can register themselves (at no additional charge) for access to the conference.
