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.
