New to Virtual Events?

We're here to help! We have put together tips and tricks, a how-to guide, and a cheat sheet to make your experience as seamless as possible. The virtual event will be held live via Zoom. If you are new to Zoom, please review the information below and contact us if we can be of any assistance! Note: this page is still being updated, so check back soon for the most up-to-date resources for attending, and presenting at, a virtual event.


Tips and resources for Presenters and Vendors

Prepare Before the Summit
Check Your Internet Connection

To get the most out of any virtual event, it is important to use reliable internet. If you are working from home, ask others in your home to stay off of the internet when you are in a session to minimize the devices connected to your network. If your wireless internet frequently lags, kicks you off, or is generally unreliable, try to use a wired connection right from your computer into your router. 

Unsure about your internet speed and reliability? Do a quick test of your internet speed on Google! This test will let you know your internet speed and how well it can handle multiple devices connected at the same time, video conferencing, and more.

Download Zoom and Create an Account

The virtual event will be held live on Zoom, a web conferencing platform that you can download and use for free. While you can join sessions from your browser without downloading Zoom, for the best user experience, particularly for presenting and hosting a meeting, we do recommend downloading Zoom and creating an account. To download Zoom, visit their website and click the "Download" button under Zoom Client for Meetings. We recommend downloading Zoom onto a device with a larger screen, such as a laptop or desktop computer, instead of using your phone or tablet. This will allow you to use all of the functionality of Zoom in order to provide the best presentation. In addition to downloading Zoom, you should create a Zoom account if you do not yet have one. You can create an account by downloading Zoom, opening the Zoom app, and clicking the "Sign up for Free" button on the bottom right. You can also create an account by visiting their sign-up page here.

Choose Your Device Carefully

If you have multiple devices, we recommend downloading Zoom onto the one with the largest screen, such as a laptop or desktop computer, so that you can easily see what is going on, see if attendees have questions, or reactions, and to use the full functionality of Zoom. When possible, we don't recommend using your phone or tablet, since the mobile version might limit your sharing capabilities, plus phone calls, emails, and text messages could be distracting for both you and attendees. The features and functionalities of the mobile version of Zoom are also slightly different, so please note that our guide and cheat sheet are not fully applicable to the mobile versions of Zoom (most tablets use the mobile version of the app as well).

Practice with Zoom

If you are a vendor with a presentation window or Zoom meeting room, you will be in charge of managing the content shared by your company and/or hosting your Zoom meeting. A UMass representative will be available leading up to and during the event if you have questions or experience technical difficulties. You can practice on your own by joining a test Zoom meeting here, or checking out some of Zoom's beginner tutorials here. If you are new to the platform, we also recommend practicing on Zoom with some colleagues before the summit. Depending on interest indicated by vendors, we also plan on hosting a vendor Zoom Practice Session where you can practice sharing your content and ask questions prior to the summit. If you have any questions or need a little more support in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're more than happy to help you get squared away (registration@umass.edu)! 

Create a Comfortable Space

Find an area of your home or office where you will be comfortable, and ideally one that is private to minimize distractions. Arrange a comfortable chair in front of your screen. Set your screen up on a table, stand, or desk. Have everything you need, like a drink, notepad and writing utensil, within reach. For when your camera is on, consider the camera angle and the background your colleagues and the attendees will see, and perhaps rearrange or spruce up your space a bit. During the session, remove distractions and background noises by closing the doors and windows to your space, silencing your phone, and asking your family, housemates, and/or co-workers to be mindful of when you will be attending/hosting sessions.

During the Summit
Get Ready for Your Session

One of the best ways to combat "Zoom fatigue" is to prepare yourself and your space in advance, and to get mentally and physically ready day-of. Consider stretching or going for a walk before each sessions starts. Brew a fresh cup of coffee or tea, fill up a water bottle, grab a notepad and pen, and then give yourself at least 15 minutes to get your device up and running, and your content ready to share. Setup your space in the days leading up to the meeting (see the "Create a Comfortable Space" section above) and have anything that you might need during the session close by - you don't want to miss anything because you have to go grab some supplies or a drink! If you decide to leave your camera on, keep in mind the presenter and other meeting attendees will be able to see you, so make sure you and your background are camera ready. Lastly, silence your phone, close out of your email, minimize any other distractions, and enjoy your session!

Take Advantage of Time In-Between Sessions

This virtual event is packed full of great sessions, but nonetheless it can be helpful to rest, recharge, and enjoy some screen-free time when the schedule allows. Review the agenda to get a sense of when you will have some breaks or blocks of down time, and take advantage of these! You can review the agenda by clicking the "Preliminary Schedule" tab above, or you can click here to view the summit flyer. When you have a break, try to get up and stretch. For longer breaks, consider taking a short walk to get some fresh air and recharge. These are also great chances to replenish any supplies, drinks, or snacks in preparation for the next session!


Presenting

Session Assignments

Vendor presentation windows will be scheduled at the beginning of sessions, and presentations will be assigned to their most relevant topic based on the description provided during registration: we will send you an email with your assigned slot and more presentation window details as the summit approaches. Although each vendor will be responsible for sharing their own content, a UMass Rep will be available for the duration of the meeting to provide assistance, if needed. Based on interest indicated during registration, the UMass Conference Services team will schedule a Vendor/Presenter Zoom Practice Session prior to the summit.

Join Your assigned Session Early

If you are a vendor who has paid for a presentation window, please plan to join your assigned Zoom session 15 minutes prior to the start time of the session. When you join, you will be brought into a waiting room, and a UMass representative will admit you into the meeting early. You will then be given co-host privileges, and can prepare for your meeting and/or practice sharing your content. When the time comes to begin the session, the host (either an OSHA presenter or a UMass rep) will let attendees in, and the meeting will begin with the vendor presentation. After the presentation, the vendor can share their contact information and a link to their website in the meeting chat before leaving the meeting.

Sharing your Content

At the beginning of your presentation, the host, or a UMass rep, will “spotlight” your video to automatically display on the screens of all attendees. Multiple presenters can be spotlighted, if needed. When you are ready to begin, click the Share Screen in the meeting toolbar to share your screen or presentation. This will display all open tabs, documents, and all navigation. Alternatively, you can select to only share an open window, document, or application. By selecting to only share an open window, the other applications on your desktop will not be displayed, and your screen will automatically stop screen sharing when that particular window, tab, or document is closed. If you are playing a video with sound, make sure to check off the box to Share Computer Sound before clicking Share
