Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011: Connecting with Content!

August 2, 2011 at 2:18 pm

The Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 is eight weeks away, and the  Early Bird Pre-Registration rate of $49 – which is 50% off the registration rate of $99 –  ends on September 9!

 

Of course, if you’re a student/faculty or government employee, you can sign up to the last minute for the super discounted rate of only $25– you’ll just miss out on your chance at winning the first of the two fabulous iPad2s we’re giving away.

Today I’ve posted the 2:45 video  “Connecting with Content” from the 6Connex Virtual Experience Platform below  which helps you navigate around to find specific types of content available at our Virtual Summit.  Once again, the Campus, above, is the home or starting point – in the videos it’s called the Lobby – same thing:

Basically, the fastest way to find a piece of content is by using the search field in the marquee on top – simply type in the word or phrase in the search area. You can also also adjust your preferences in the navigation bar below to specify what type of content you’re interested in browsing within your Recommendations tab.

The Recommendations tab is a shortcut to content found elsewhere in the virtual environment – review this content at any time by clicking the star icon.  There’s also “virtual browsing” by using the viewport, which is this large center portion of the environment from the greenroof campus which you can access from various areas.  When entering the Auditorium, for example, you can browse through the various pieces of content and then interact by simply clicking the play button for videos or you can add documents to your briefcase as a convenient zip file to your desktop, add videos to playlist, etc.  And don’t forget you can always access the Agenda  posted on the log-in page, Help Desk and Auditorium area.

Remember, you can access these features from the navigation bar, adjust your preferences,  edit your profile at any time, and if you need assistance, you can always just go to the help desk for a live person on either September 27 or 28.

Review the  Social Collaboration Network (SCN) video or see all of them here – and look for another video highlight soon.
