Each session will be recorded and will be available after the conference linked to each session in the program.

Note for Speakers

A few items to remember:

  • Review the screen share instructions above.
  • Each session has a volunteer host with "Volunteer" in their name. Please ask them for any help you need with Zoom.
  • If you have multiple speakers, they will be allowed to speak - just mute/unmute yourself.
  • During the session, you can chat with participants in the Zoom room - we recommend you are posting to everyone and not privately so everyone can learn from each other.
  • For any pre or post session discussion, please use the Snap! Forum post for your session.
  • You can edit your session to add materials to share with your session attendees, update your abstract, and add an event subtitle.
  • Add a profile picture to your account so your headshot can appear on the program with your event. Once you are logged into the Snap!Con website, you can edit your user profile.
