Date Change for the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011

August 9, 2011 at 6:35 pm

We here at Greenroofs.com have rescheduled the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 for September 27th (Tuesday) & 28th (Wednesday).   A large number of unexpected events have made this decision necessary  – from speaker delays/conflicts to personal events to technical glitches – yet, we know that the extra time will be well worth it in the end!

We are very excited about our exceptional line-up of speakers and exhibitors and the extra time will ensure that the event will be a unique experience like no other!

We will also be extending the  Early Bird Pre-Registration date for the Virtual Summit quite a bit – up to a little more than 2 weeks before the event, which now will run through September 9.

Remember the Early Bird rate is only $49 (or $25 for students/faculty and government professionals) for both days plus the 30 archived on-demand days afterwards which includes over 30 presentations and panel sessions from 50+ colleagues from around the world.  So that means that the drawing for the first of two Apple iPad2s that we’ll be giving away will be announced on September 10 here on the Sky Gardens blog.

I’m hoping to finally release the agenda by the end of this week or Monday.  We have some incredibly awesome presentations, both individual and panel sessions – stay tuned!

See our Press Release here.  See you at the end of September!

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.

Virtual Summit 2011: Participating with the SCN!

July 27, 2011 at 10:01 pm

We’re getting closer to the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 and Early Bird Pre-Registration is coming along quite nicely!  If you haven’t done so yet, pre-register by the end of August 10, 2011 to qualify for the first of two iPad2s that we’re giving away.

Have you seen the videos on the Virtual Summit Homepage yet?  They’re quite short yet very informative and will set you up to expect easy navigation and great interactive participation. They talk about various features of the very cool Social Collaboration Network or SCN, which is the collaboration glue for the entire virtual experience!

The Campus, above, is the home or starting point.  Search for people by multiple ways, see their profile, and send personal messages via video  or text.  This allows you to connect directly with colleagues, old or new, by inviting them to chat.

Remember, you can access these features from the navigation bar, 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 August 23 or 24.

We’ll be featuring more of these short but sweet videos soon! Until then, stay up to date with our social media sites where you can help us get the word out by inviting your friends and associates – tell them they can register for only $49 (or less if they’re student or faculty or a government employee):
