Live Stream of Sessions: 2011 Midwest Education Technology keynote and featured speakers’ sessions will be streamed live at METCconference.org during the conference and also archived on the website. This will allow remote participants to watch some of the high-quality program as live video streams and as archived videos. Streaming and recording is compliments of IDSolutions.
Back Channel Chatting & Conversation: Twitter will be used throughout the conference to inform, remind and discuss the events and sessions. Following #METC_CSD will allow participants to stay up-to-date with happenings at the 2011 conference whether they are in attendance or not. Twitter will be utilized as a back channel during the streamed keynote and selected featured speakers’ sessions. All streamed sessions will be assigned the unique hashtag #virtualMETC in addition to the #METC_CSD, so those interested in following the discussion can easily read and participate from within or outside the St. Charles Convention Center.
