Online events aren't only about having a conversation on your own website. How can you get more people involved by meeting them where they're at? We'll use the TSdigs event in October 2009 as a case study. The event took place on forums, webinars, Tweetchat, Second Life, flickr and YouTube. This cross-platform event allowed for multiple levels of interaction with the single goal of teaching nonprofits how to tell stories digitally. The panel will take place across a mixed-reality framework, to illustrate the process and feeling of a cross-platform/mixed reality event.
1. Why would one use more than one platform and what platform would one choose for an online event?
2. How can event organizers manage multiple backchannels and still hold space in the real life room?
3. How can you make platforms talk to each other via feeds?
