How does a Virtual Conference Work

Virtual Conferences have two "Tracks," or two "Conference Rooms;" you will have a choice of two presentations you can attend at any time. You can choose one of those presentations and "go to that room" and watch and listen to a 45- to 50-minute presentation and ask questions of the speaker by typing your questions into a "public chat area." At the end of the presentation you will have 10 or 15 minutes before the next session starts. If you would like to change to the presentation in the other track, just close your current connection and click on the link for the other "Conference Room" and reconnect to iLinc in that session.

If you are scheduled to speak, it is recommended that you use a headset microphone. Please keep your mic muted except when you want to speak, unmute to speak, and then mute again to listen.
