FAQs

Webstreaming Option

What is webstreaming?
If you prefer to attend the conference sessions from the comfort of your home institution, the Legal Issues in Higher Education Conference can be viewed via a low cost webstream option, the webstream will be a live video (with audio) stream of the conference. Price is per computer and if you choose to project the conference sessions at your home institution, you may have many people attend.

Can I receive CLE credit for webstreaming the conference?
There is NO CLE credit available for the webstreaming option.

How does webstreaming work?
Each purchased instance of the webconference provides access to one session or room at one time. In order to watch multiple sessions simultaneously, a person would have to purchase multiple instances. At most we will have 3 sessions running at any given time. After the conference all the content will be available to the webconference attendees. If multiple people from an institution want to view multiple tracks simultaneous they will need to purchase multiple instances. If multiple people want to watch the same session they only need to purchase one instance.The rooms we use will each have a camera set up and an online facilitator.

When can I expect to receive instructions on how to webstream the conference?
You will be sent instructions on how to webstream the conference 2-4 business days prior to the start of the conference.
