Question:

How long is a session?

(Last edited: Wednesday, 30 April 2014, 4:05 PM)
Answer:

Each "session" slot is 90 minutes long. But this does not mean you need to present for this period of time. 

For the sake of programming each slot has the same allocated duration, although presenters can choose to fill as much (or as little) of this slot as they wish. We do ask the following minimum requirements.

Session Length - A session should be no more than 60 minutes and no less than 15 minutes. 

Question Time - We ask that a minimum of 30 minutes be allocated to Q&A sessions with attendees.

Answer:

iMoot uses two pieces of software at it's core.

  • Moodle - To facilitate access to each session (you are in Moodle now)
  • BigBlueButton - To facilitate the live delivery.

iMoot staff will provide you access, support and training on these tools before the event begins
