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 took place entirely online in real time, live through the Internet, and all live online sessions were recorded. Access to the recordings from Learning • Technology • Design 2017 is now available for purchase, and purchasers will have access through May 31, 2017. Travel is not required for you to participate. All sessions and the exhibit hall are accessed through a conference Web site.
All aspects of LTD, including audio, are Web-based.
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.
All live online sessions were recorded, and access to the recordings from Learning • Technology • Design 2017 is now available for purchase.
What are the registration options?
You may purchase an individual registration or an organizational registration to access the recordings from Learning • Technology • Design 2017. Purchasers have access to the recordings through May 31, 2017.
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.
Note: Organizational registration for the live online conference closed end of day February 27. Individual registration for the live online conference closed when LTD started on March 1. Individual and organizational recordings-only registration options are available for purchase through May 15. Purchasers have access to the recordings through May 31.
What if I could not attend the live conference?
All sessions were recorded and are available to those who registered before the live conference started. If you did not register before the live conference started but wish to view the recordings, you may purchase an individual registration or an organizational registration to access them. Recorded sessions include slides, handouts, and any other presentation materials provided in the live session. Recorded sessions are 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. To ensure you receive e-mails about LTD, please make sure that tagoras.com and commpartners.com are added to your address book, safe sender list, or whitelist.
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.
I purchased an individual registration but would like to convert that to an organizational registration. Is that possible?
Is this conference eligible for CAE credit?
