The Economical way to Amplify Your Event

Last week at the Institutional Web Management Workshop 2011 I facilitated a session entitled The Economical way to Amplify Your Event with Brian Kelly.

In the session we compared two approaches. Firstly we tried out amplifying using a decent camera and delivering it through a net vibe page. The live stream recording is also available.

We also streamed the session using a phone and Bambuser.

In the session we highlighted the work carried out by the Greening Events II Project funded by JISC Greening ICT Programme. The first stage of work, carried out by ILRT based at the University of Bristol, produced the Green Event Guidelines document and the Rethinking Events report. The second stage of work has brought UKOLN in and has us creating a toolkit for event organisers.

The rest of the session built on some work I’ve already done in this area looking at tools, approaches and concerns. The slides are available from my Slideshare account and are embedded below.
