Pioneering E-Instruction in the Virtual Conference Space

In August 2012, Campaign Consultation executed a comprehensive e-instruction event in a virtual conference space: the first-ever virtual conference hosted by the Corporation for National and Community Service. During this live, online, three-day event, 1500 attendees associated with CNCS’ Senior Corps programs browsed through a virtual space designed to feel like an in-person conference.

Participants entered the conference through a static home page, and found themselves in the middle of a vibrant and shifting virtual world. Entrants came immediately face-to-face with a walking, talking greeting from Dr. Erwin Tan, Director of Senior Corps. From there, attendees could choose to visit an exhibit hall to chat with partner representatives, enter a virtual library to peruse materials and media, drop files into their virtual event bags, and network with colleagues from across the country in a virtual lounge.

Four conference halls hosted live and on-demand presentations of performance measurement curriculum for Senior Corps programs. Presenters integrated video, audio, and slides to facilitate the e-learning experience. Campaign Consultation managed this event from building and designing the venue space, to fitting together the puzzle pieces of the agenda, training presenters and booth representatives, and leading live day participants through the virtual space.

A Hidden Reminder Found in Florida, Forever Imprinted In My Mind

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” – Martin Buber

If given the opportunity to travel, where would you go?  For some of us it is the mountains, for others it is a lake, and yet for others it may be the ocean.   For me, it was Key West.  Using the travel voucher I received from Linda and Steven Rivelis, I had the opportunity to do something that I had always dreamed of.

While in the Keys, I had the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, such as kayaking the mangroves, snorkeling the coral reefs, drinking straight from a coconut, and visiting the Southernmost Point in the United States.  While I adored the islands from the moment I crossed that first bridge, I fell in love with Key West when I learned about its philosophy of “One Human Family”.  This philosophy reminds us that we are all different, we are all unique, and we are all equal.  Upon seeing that painting on the sidewalk, I was reminded that we must embrace one another as we are, for we are all travelers in this world – none greater than the other.
