Presenter Q & A

Not all of the speakers who are in my session are listed on on the platform, what do I do?

Educate Maine is responsible for adding speakers to your session at our Hopin event. However, we can't add a speaker until they have registered for the event.

Speakers are added to the sessions each morning and afternoon by Educate Maine as registrations come in. If a speaker for your session is not listed, it is likely they have not registered. Please reach out to them to ensure they are registered before contacting Educate Maine.

Can I get into my session before the event is live?

Unfortunately, no. You will be able to test your presentation and technology via the access link above during the open office hours being hosted in the days before the event but will not be able to broadcast or get into your session until the day and time assigned to your session. If you have technology concerns, please reference the above tutorials or contact Kate Howell.

How do I enter my session once the event is live?

When it's time for the event, head to this page and login before the event starts. Click Enter Event.  

To enter your session, click Sessions on the bottom lefthand side and find your session when it is the assigned time.  Click it to enter. 

Am I able to make any changes to my session?

Educate Maine staff is available that can make changes to your session description and speakers list.  You will need to email any changes to kate@educatemaine.org and we will make them as soon as possible.

Does Hopin support video chat?

Yes, Hopin does support live video chats with attendees.  Please check out this video for more information:  https://youtu.be/1bq4DIh5n3o
