The Economical way to Amplify Your Event [B3]


All institutions are involved in providing events, ranging from international conferences through to smaller and more informal seminars and workshops.

The Web team are often involved in supporting these events by delivering resources, streaming content and promoting outputs. However there’s rarely any extra budget for these activities….which can be a problem!

This session will consider:

  • What you need to do to successfully amplify an event (ideas include effective use of slides, images, twitter, blogs etc. videoing and streaming content etc.)
  • The free and not-so-free tools that are out there for you to use (e.g. Ustream, Bambuser, Lanyrd, Elluminate, Panopto, Big Blue Button etc.)
  • The equipment it would be useful to have (e.g. camera, phone etc.) ~ What issues you will need to bear in mind (e.g. copyright, quality etc.)

It will also consider event amplification at IWMW and look at what has worked and what hasn’t worked over the past few years.

The session will encourage interaction and attendees will be invited to share experiences and tips. It is also hoped that the session will be live streamed and delegates will be able to experiment with some of the possible tools.
