While we can’t all attend every conference, thankfully there are still ways to tap into what’s happening from the comfort of your own home. Things like following the conference hashtag on Twitter (it’s #LSCon for the upcoming Learning Solutions/Ecosystem 2017), checking into curated backchannel resources, and reading blog posts from the people on site can be a handy way to share in some of the conference insights and discussions. That said, it’s still not quite the same as being able to see the concurrent sessions themselves – but we’re about to change that.
For this year’s event we’re making it even easier for people at home to get more of the conference session experience thanks to Facebook Live. We’ll be sharing live video of a few specially selected concurrent sessions each day of the conference, allowing you to get a sampling of some of the fantastic speakers and content at the event this year. You can tune in at the session broadcast times to watch each full session as it airs, or come back to the eLearning Guild Facebook page at any time to watch them later.
