  • I don’t have an internet connection. Can I call in and hear the session on my phone?
  • Will the sessions be recorded, and can I view them afterwards?

    All sessions will be recorded and stored in the event site. By logging back into the event, you  have access to watch or download the session recordings for one month after the event is over. 

  • What if I can’t hear audio?
  • Will I need to participate or be on video?

    That depends on your session’s facilitator. They may encourage discussion or participation. If you have participated in a Zoom, Teams, or Google meeting before, you can expect a similar experience.  

  • Can I attend virtually with a group of people?

    Sure! We understand the internet connections and access to computers can be tricky at times. Groups of people are welcome to watch sessions together through a single attendee account. We just ask that all members of the group register, so that we know how many people are participating. Also, registering yourself means you can access recordings and downloads even after the event is over. 

  • What if my community has satellite or low bandwidth internet?

    We’re aware of the connectivity challenges that can cause issues for you. We are using a session meeting tool that’s been used in our Wapaskwa Virtual Collegiate to reliably deliver courses and meetings to low bandwidth communities.  

    Even still, if poor connection issues interrupt your session, we are providing access to  downloadable recordings of all sessions. By registering, you have access to downloads even after  the event is over. 

  • What is Brightspace?

    Brightspace is a learning management system (LMS) used to create, host and deliver online courses. It can also be used to host online virtual conferences using connected technologies to host meetings, share content and centralize the communications needed to host successful online events. 

  • Is there an app I can download for my phone?
