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 with us organizers (using the link at left) is the first step. The conference will send attendees a "magic link." When they get the magic link, they create their account on hopin. It may create that account automatically. 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. No Streamyard here.
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.
