Learning in the New Online Education World

YourUpdateTV

As camps and schools across the country have closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic – and many still uncertain about schools reopening in the fall – parents have turned to online resources to keep their kids engaged and interested in the topics and subjects they care about. Recently, Amir Nathoo, CEO of Outschool teamed with YourUpdateTV to discuss online education and the importance of keeping kids engaged in subjects they care about. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/e-NrnePKx8w Outschool is an online learning platform with live, interactive classes for kids aged 3-18. Kids learn best when through interaction, and that means adults and other kids. What parents saw in the spring with distance learning was often a stack of lifeless worksheets or following a self-paced digital curriculum which was boring, stale and oftentimes ineffective. Parents had to resort to video games in off hours as “good screen” time alternatives were few and far between. Outschool classes help learners overcome learning challenges as a social activity by keeping kids engaged in topics they care about with instructors who are passionate about what they are teaching. The platform has a unique selection of over 50,000 live class offerings, like learning to code, cupcake decorating, cooking classes, drawing instruction, teaching architecture through Minecraft , along with traditional classes like algebra and world history. A recent Outschool survey found that nearly ⅔ (61%) of parents had reservations about sending their children back to school in the fall for in-person classes and 40% were now more open to homeschooling their children as a result of their experiences during the Covid-19 crisis. Many schools across the country are now preparing for distance learning once again or hybrid model of some in-person and some homeschooling. This summer, Outschool announced a full range of online summer camps for kids from camps across the country that have been forced to go virtual due to Covid-19. For the fall of 2020 they will be launching a full slate of enrichment offerings and supplemental education courses to assist with distance learning. With over 5,000 teachers on the platform and hundreds of thousands of learners, Outschool is helping to foster a love of learning and bridge the gap where students may be falling behind during this crisis. For more information, visit Outschool.com About Amir Nathoo : Amir Nathoo is CEO of Outschool, a marketplace for live online classes for K-12 learners. He led the development of Square Payroll and also served as CEO and co-founder of Trigger.io. He holds an MEng in Electrical and Information Sciences from The University of Cambridge.

Cloud Conventions Expands Registration Capabilities with 3rd-Party Providers

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full-featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution today expanded its capabilities to offer connections to two new external registration technologies, providing additional options to register attendees for virtual conferences or association events. The first in a series of integrations are with Experient, a division of Maritz Global Services and RegFox, a California-based registration company. Cloud Conventions is a virtual event SaaS platform from Convey Services . “Many show producers or event managers have a history of using platforms like Experient to manage complex registrations, including taking payment, managing travel and lodging, and selecting program extras,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey Services. “These proven registration platforms will augment Cloud Conventions’ internal registration engine, giving event operators the flexibility of using a solution they are familiar with and may already have a contract.” Cloud Conventions connects to external registration systems through an application program interface (API) to collect and transmit data. Once Cloud Conventions receives a registration, the system creates a unique attendee record and assigns a classification based on the purchased event package. Attendees receive a welcome email from Cloud Conventions with access credentials so they can login immediately or a welcome email can be scheduled for a later date. Event organizers have the option of approving all applications any action is taken. “Some events have complex payment structures or need to validate an attendee against a membership record,” added Bradfield. “Many organizations have relationships with a registration company that offers greater customization. All a show needs to do is identify the external platform to Convey and we’ll connect the two systems.” Cloud Conventions can provide a personalized content experience with customized dashboards, segmented email communication or restricted access to some or all exhibit booths or content based on attendee type. To learn more about the options available for a virtual conference, tradeshow or event, visit the Online Resource Center at CloudConventions.com . About Cloud Conventions Cloud Conventions is a Virtual Trade Show and Conference Platform from Convey Services that brings new capabilities to a marketplace looking for solutions to replace the thousands of live trade shows, annual conferences and association meetings cancelled in the wake of COVID-19.

Cloud Conventions Launches Online Resource Center for Virtual Event Managers

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full featured virtual tradeshow, conference and event technology solution today launched an Online Resource Center to guide future event planners and operators though the expanding world of virtual events. The Center provides strategies, best practices and ideas for effective event design to engage attendees and deliver a strong ROI to exhibitors and sponsors. Articles and eBooks outline how to set up, manage and run a world class virtual event with engaging educational and social sessions that deliver an interactive experience for both attendees and exhibitors. Cloud Conventions is a virtual event SaaS platform from Convey Services . “Almost every event manager, show operator or association is having to learn how to manage a virtual event for the first time, we have been doing online events for years,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey. “Most event managers make the mistake of believing that a series of webinars constitutes a virtual experience that will inspire attendees. Webinars have been overused and most people are not motivated to sit through an endless stream of repetitive webinar sessions. An effective virtual experience needs a higher level of content from the event and its exhibitors, with live sessions offered alongside on-demand programs.” The Online Resource Center features the Virtual Event Playbook, a guide to the features and capabilities of the Cloud Conventions platform in addition to curated articles and videos on best practices in delivering virtual sessions, enhancing the attendee experience or managing and working with exhibitors and sponsors. “We are constantly curating best practices from across this dynamic new industry so that event managers, even novices to the world of virtual shows, can be successful hosting their first event,” added Bradfield. “Exhibitors must embrace a different strategy to capture attendee information and interact through chat, video meeting rooms, scheduled meetings or gamification. A virtual tradeshow should center around a theme or mission, offer rich content, ways to connect with exhibitors, as well as other attendees along with opportunities to socialize.” Cloud Conventions has features to promote interaction with discussion forums, opt-in attendee directories, social sessions, and live exhibitor meetings. Exhibitors can use chat, streaming video meetings, or integrated meeting calendars. They can offer ‘virtual swag’, show specials or promotions and give away CloudPoints™ for attendees who engage inside their booth.

SynaVoice SOL provides equitable access to enrichment opportunities

SynaVoice SOL

SynaVoice SOL is a virtual camp for high school students. Our mission is to provide exposure to new ideas, concepts, and skills that will inform college, career, and life choices for the students. Founded at the juncture of the COVID 19 quarantine crisis and the social movement to expose long-held systemic racism in our society, SynaVoice SOL aims to create an environment where campers of all backgrounds can meet to engage in interesting and thought-provoking conversations. Julie Rothhouse, Founder of SynaVoice SOL stated, “Diversity is the cornerstone of SynaVoice SOL. Our camp was founded on the principle of equitable access to our unique topics. Once we declared our intention, our networks went to work to help us recruit a diverse group of campers and counselors.” Through introductions and word-of-mouth, SynaVoice has been able to partner with independent schools to identify scholarship candidates. In addition, SynaVoice has reached into communities and engaged school districts to spread the word about SynaVoice SOL. To date, campers from 11 different states, the Seneca Nation of Indians, Switzerland, and Brazil have enrolled in SynaVoice SOL sessions. As with our campers, SynaVoice SOL counselors are an equally diverse group of accomplished college students who serve as role models for the campers. The paid counselor positions provide a resume-building experience for college students during the summer of COVID when most of their planned activities were cancelled or scaled back considerably. Counselors represent Brown University, New York University, Frostburg State University, Wake Forest University, The College of William and Mary, Johns Hopkins University, and College of the Holy Cross. Counselor recruiting was solely through word-of-mouth and networking. SynaVoice SOL is partnering with Productions Plus – The Talent Shop to produce and execute the camp sessions. Margery Krevsky Dosey, CEO of Productions Plus stated, “The camps are a unique forum for high school students and counselors to have meaningful conversations about topics of interest. The diversity enriches the conversations and the experience for all involved.” Ms. Rothhouse added, “We are grateful to our sponsors, without them we would not have been able to execute our vision. In particular, Global Services supported our scholarships with a generous contribution and Cabin 3 Media supported our efforts with introductions to partner schools, scholarship support, and video production support.” There is still time to register a high school student for the final two sessions, True Crime: Introduction to Criminal Law & Criminal Cases with Dr. James D. Diamond and The Influence of Design: History & Design of Logos with Curt Doty . If you would prefer to donate to SynaVoice SOL to support our continued efforts, you can do so here.
