The Technology Enabled Seminar + Showcase (TESS) is eCampusOntario’s annual conference where we celebrate our members’ achievements in online and tech enabled teaching and learning. This keystone event provides faculty, instructional designers, administrators, librarians, and other key stakeholders from all 45 Ontario post-secondary institutions with an opportunity to interact with each other, showcase ongoing work, and share latest accomplishments.

Want to participate virtually at TESS?
Virtually Connecting is a volunteer-run organization working to provide a slice of access to educational conferences to those who cannot make it there in person. They organize virtual hangout sessions (on Google Hangouts) to happen throughout a conference during breaks in the schedule. On site volunteers recruit guests (usually conference keynotes and other speakers) to join these sessions for an informal chat about conference topics. This allows those interested—but not there in person—to join the hangout and connect while the conference is happening. These sessions are also broadcast live on Youtube for anyone to watch and then they are posted to YouTube, and the virtuallyconnecting.org website for posterity.

To get a better idea of how it all works, se the blog post for the most recent conference that Virtually Connecting connected with: Open Ed 18. Visit the blog at this link:  http://virtuallyconnecting.org/blog/2018/10/06/opened18/
