Hopin is an online conference platform. We will use it for our conference.
We'll put some guidance here on how to sign in and use it.
- Chrome or Firefox are recommended over other browsers. Close other tabs and windows using audio/video if possible
Registration on the platform
Registering for the conference is the first step. The conference will send attendees a "magic link." When they get the magic link, they create their account on hopin. They fill in a hopin account and then they respond to the email that comes back.
- Stages for speakers with the audience silent. The speakers meet in Streamyard, either "internal" to Hopin or external
- Workshops or sessions are meetings in which 20 people can talk and be visible. More people can attend and hear and see.
- In either
Thru Kudo or Clevercast or Qondo, then in two directions hopefully: back to Hopin, and to YouTube.
- Through Streamyard, flexibility "backstage", in the "green room" and, we think, a way for interpreters to give a second audio channel.
- Safe space capabilities: organizers can silence or expel a participant
- Recordings: We can record most sessions (possibly not second audio channel) automatically and get the recordings later
- EMWCon and SMWCon used this platform, for smaller more techy MediaWiki conferences than this one.
