Information For Conference Presenters

  1. 1. Using Cloudworks at conferences and events Information for conference presenters What is Cloudworks? Cloudworks is a place for people interested in sharing, finding and discussing educational ideas and experiences. Cloudworks is for anyone with an interest either formally or informally in education. You can use it for:  Discussing or blogging a workshop or theme  Adding links and references  Sharing photos, videos and slides Cloudworks is an open site; anyone can view, register and add to any of the Clouds. The conference organiser has chosen Cloudworks as one of the tools to support the event. A Cloud will be set up for your keynote, paper, presentation, workshop or poster and we invite you to add to your Cloud. Using Cloudworks Step 1: Create an account. You can view everything on the site without registering but if you want to participate you will need to create an account. Go to Cloudworks and click on the red sign-up tab. You will be sent an activation email to your email account. Step 2: Set up a profile. Once you have registered, you can set up a personal profile. Your profile page includes information about the things you are interested in, the Clouds you have added, the Cloudscapes and people you are following, and who is following you. All the Clouds created by the people and Cloudscapes you are following are also collected in your Cloudstream. Step 3: Follow the event Cloudscape. The URL for the Event Cloudscape is: cloudscape/view/XXXX From this page you can show that you are attending, see who else is attending, view the Clouds added, add Clouds, see recent activity, see the Twitter stream and set up an RSS feed. Step 4: Add to the Clouds. You can discuss ideas, add comments, links and academic references and embed rich media (videos, slideshows, images) in any Cloud. You can also ‘favourite’ Cloudscapes, Clouds and links that you find interesting or useful (these will then appear on your profile page). Step 5: Promote your Cloud. You may want to invite people to have a look at your Cloud and begin to discuss the themes prior to, during or after the event. You can do this through twitter (using the conference #tag), email lists etc. Help and support The answers to most questions can be found on the FAQ page (the link to this is on the home page). If you can’t find your answer there, search for the ‘Using Cloudworks’ Cloudscape which contains more detailed help. If you continue to have problems or queries, contact your conference organiser or the Cloudworks team We would be very pleased to receive your feedback on your experience of using Cloudworks
