Hello Everyone,

The regional organization eLCC <http://www.elearningcolorado.org/> I'm
involved in putting on our first annual conference online in April.
We offered a lot of different options
<http://www.elearningcolorado.org/sessions.html> for session but now that
everyone in our organization is working on taking classes online, we've
narrowed it down to Zoom for sessions and using padlet for posters. I'm
sure other digital wall platforms could work just as well. To try to get
the poster hall feel we're taking the urls of all the padlet and putting
them on one padlet. The information about the posters is all on our CFP
Anyone who want to is more than welcome to talk a look, use any of
verbiage, etc. Also feel free to come to the conference, it's free and
online - you can check out what we do well and what we don't do well.
