Is This the Virtual Version of LTEN Annual Conference

In short, No.

After careful consideration, we have made the difficult but important decision to cancel the live conference. As much as we want to greet old and new friends in person, our primary concern is for the health and welfare of our members, our partners and our people.

We know how important is it for our members to connect and continue building on their skills and exploring innovative ways of leading their training organizations. The LTEN leadership decided to create an entirely new virtual learning platform – the LTEN Connect virtual learning forum!

LTEN Connect will feature a mix of live and pre-recorded content, an environment to meet with top training partners, keynotes and LTEN Talks, Learning Labs, and awards ceremonies. The online platform also includes plenty of ways to engage and connect with one another, speakers and exhibitors.

What is the Virtual Conference Experience Like?

The virtual learning platform will be a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions, Labs, keynotes and LTEN Talks. The event also features a virtual exhibit hall learning village and communication tools to help you connect with peers, facilitators and exhibitors.

Upon entering the LTEN Connect virtual platform, you’ll come to a main landing page that plays a welcome video. You’ll be able to see the complete agenda and select which sessions you’ll attend.

There’s a messaging tool on every screen where you’ll be able to interact with other attendees and participants depending on what portion of the platform you’re in. If you’re in a session, you’ll be able to message the speaker and all of those listening in on the session.

LTEN Connect features an exhibit hall that will be open for the entire three days of the event. Here, you can learn more about learning partners, download their materials, watch videos and message with staff members.

In addition to the live sessions, this virtual event will feature the Hall of Fame induction on Tuesday and awards ceremony on Wednesday.

Do I Need To Download Anything?

No. We’ll send you login information when you sign up and then you use the web-based platform.

According to the brains behind the technology:

“The virtual event experience is built for the web, so no one needs to download anything, ever. We do recommend the use of Google Chrome for the best experience. PheedLoop Meet for face-to-face video networking is entirely web based.”

Who Can I Contact If I'm Having Tech Problems?

We will have technical support. More information will be posted shortly before the start of the live event.
