Amplification Guidance for Online Participants
We are planning to amplify this year's JISC Conference to help enhance the experience of the physical audience and to open the event up to a wider, remote audience around the world.
We aim to provide resources and support using a variety of popular online tools to give the event a second, online dimension. The content will come from the speakers, workshop leaders and, most importantly, you the participants.
We want the ideas discussed at the JISC Conference to go further than before, without restricting your freedom to explore those ideas to only one platform.
We will be providing and maintaining the following:
Live Video Stream
There will be a complete online programme throughout the event, featuring interviews, commentary and live footage of some of the sessions. The live streamed opening keynote will be accompanied by a BSL interpreter to help increase the accessibility of this session.
Our event amplifier will be providing a detailed live commentary of each live streamed sessions to highlight the key messages. You can follow this commentary from the @JISCLive account during the morning and from @JISCLive2 in the afternoon, or via the event hash tag #jisc11.
The JISC 11 LinkedIn Group
This group is provided as an open space for participants to expand their professional networks by connecting with other participants from JISC11. Please feel free to use is space to make connections and discuss themes related to the conference.
Online Engagement Team
If you are following the event remotely, you will be supported by our online engagement team. If you have a question or any observations, simply send a message to @JISCEvents or email. A member of the team can relay your questions directly to the speaker during Q&A sessions so at you can hear their answer via the live video stream.

Acceptable Use Policy

Don't suffer in silence
The reason we are formally supporting the use of networked technologies is to help enhance your experience of the event and the surrounding conversations, whether you are there in person or participating from afar. For this reason, we actively encourage you to let us know directly if there is something we can do to help - whether it be turning the volume up on the live stream, retweeting a useful link or sourcing more coffee. We will return all follows to the @JISCEvents account so that you can send us a discrete direct message, or you can email us. Please also make sure you take the time to complete our feedback survey when we send it to you after the event so that we can improve our event amplification at future events.
Listen, share and engage
Our event amplification activities are designed to enhance and facilitate conversation, knowledge sharing and future innovation. Please take the time to listen to others, share your own views and useful links, question, and engage with others. The event cannot be amplified without your voices.
We will be capturing the conversation where possible to help amplify the event across time. This will include:
- providing recordings of the live streamed sessions (including Q&A)
- providing recordings of the live streamed ‘in between sessions’ interviews and discussions
- archiving the Twitter conversation using Twapperkeeper
- re-publishing selected tweets via Storify
- photographs and video footage from around the event
These resources will be made available for future reference so that others can learn about the rich diversity of topics covered and discover more about JISC projects. If you do not wish your contributions to be included in these archives, please let us know.
