Important Information

Dear Presenters,

Thank you so much for being part of RSCON. We have 2 more weeks until the conference, which takes place Oct. 11 - 13th. We are planning to post the schedule, flier, and program in the next few days and also email and Skype schools. We also will be posting training times later today. We have been spreading news on our social networks, Facebook, Twitter (@RSCON4, hashtag #RSCON4), Youtube, and GPlus.    

We want to make sure you “wow” your audience with your ideas and experience very little problems during your presentation. Please, review the following:

  • Get your presenter’s badge

  • Follow these 6 steps to get people excited about your presentation (infographic) and make sure your profile will entice them to attend your session. Let us know you completed these steps using the #RSCON4 tag or by posting on our Facebook page. We will share it on the social networks

  • Here’s a blurb you can copy/paste to announce the event on your blog

  • Schedule your interview with Bruno Andrade here.

  • Pay close attention to the messages from this group as we will be announcing Blackboard training dates with Jo Hart, Phil Hart, and Peggy George.

  • PRESENTATION DESIGN- Keep your presentations simple. Use only PowerPoint slides or JPEGs and make  sure to “minimize” the images so that the size of the presentation is under 7MB. Please, no animations, effects, or transitions. If you are using special fonts or many visual elements, it’s best you turn slides into JPEGs. We are inviting participants in 100+ countries. Bandwidth is an issue and presenters in the past have had problems showing videos, screensharing and doing web tours. You can wow with images, screenshots of sites, and your passion! You can also post videos and links to your profile so the audience continues to connect with you.

  • We recommend that you sign up at the WeCollaborate user community for support and advice. You can get a free, 30-day, 25-seat trial of Collaborate HERE. This will allow you to practice now and make sure your presentation looks the way you want. You can also check your mic and webcam settings. MAC users need to download the Collaborate Launcher for Mac. Get help here.

  • If your presentation information is posted in the Presenter’s Discussion, then you need to repost it in the right forum or it will not be approved. You should have received an email from Shelly regarding this. Make sure your presentation is located under Session Descriptions. Presentation descriptions listed in this group’s discussions will soon be deleted.

  • Schedule your presentation as soon as possible. Slots have been filled.
