We are using a cutting edge online event platform, Hopin, to host the 2020 NEASC Annual Conference and Showcase 100% virtually. This platform, like our theme, is founded on engagement. Through multi-tiered networking and unique live video interactions between all participants — presenters and peers — you will have access not just to current and relevant content but to each other. We are very excited to bring you the interactive and community-building aspects that make events so memorable.
For the optimal virtual conference experience using Hopin you will need:
- the latest version of Google Chrome installed on your device
- Hopin works best on Chrome, but Firefox is also compatible Firefox
- Make sure your browser is up to date
- a computer with a camera
- a headset with a microphone (separate speakers and microphones are not recommended)
- a strong/stable Internet connection
