Our Higher Ed Huddles: Virtual Event Strategy sessions have finally kicked off and will be hosted Tuesdays at 3PM and Thursdays at 2PM ET through October 20th. We had great conversation in our first round of huddles in August and are looking forward to having additional networking sessions in the coming weeks. We wanted to share these insights with the Community and give the opportunity to continue the conversation. We hope these Higher Ed Huddles along with the open forum discussions allow you to connect with one another and learn from your industry peers.
To help us focus on Higher Education engagement in this new world, we would like to hear from you. Copy the question below, click reply, paste the questions and provide your responses.
Now that you have attended a huddle, if you have any other additional thoughts or questions please reply on this discussion to ask the Higher Ed Community. We encourage you to continue to network and further discuss your Virtual Event Strategy.
If you would like to sign up for a Higher Ed Huddle, register now for an upcoming session. We look forward to seeing you there! #HigherEd
We have executed fully virtual and virtual/live hybrid events. Our events are often training and professional learning for educators. The challenge has been to prevent Zoom fatigue for live virtual events and to prevent overcommitment by registrants. We focused on several fully virtual courses that give instructions to participants to be able to train their internal team. We also focused on fully virtual courses with downloadable materials, pre-recorded viewable video content, and a staff-led Q&A forum for clarity and networking.
The most creative experience will be out upcoming and nearly complete fully virtual conferences for educators across the U.S. We will have exhibitors, networking 'halls', keynote speakers, and live, course-based, pre-recorded, and downloadable materials all combined for concurrent breakout sessions.
Our current 'win' is the massive positive response to our self-paced training courses where we educate one key participant to assist their entire leadership team for their upcoming virtual review meetings. We have posted nearly 20 course sessions for registrants with an 40-80 person capacity per course session, and we are having to open new sessions on a bi-weekly basis because the courses are filling. Not only are people registering, but they are attending at a 94-97% rate per session.
