Key Information

General Overview

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox. This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

To open and explore the stacks/ePosters from the Showcase:

Click on the title (1) to open it

Open an ePoster from the Showcase
  • Click on any Tile (2) to explore its content
  • Click on the X button (3) to close the viewer and return to the Showcase
Explore and then close an ePoster

If the author has provided the full list of authors in their ePoster details then you can also view the full list of authors whilst browsing the ePosters on the showcase. Just move your mouse over the author’s name and the full list of authors will show up.

On the showcase you can search by typing your search text in the search box (1) and pressing enter. The search looks for matches in the ePoster title, authors, poster number (if included by the conference) and description. If you want to search for a specific phrase then enclose it in quote marks (e.g. “simulation in teaching” or “Joan Davis”).

Search and filter options

You can also choose to search by Tags. Click on the Tags button (2) and then start typing the tag name you want to search for in the Tag box that appears. The system will suggest matching tags from those that are being used by authors in this showcase. You can also search by Tags by simply clicking on a Tag in an ePoster’s summary box.

You can filter the ePoster’s on view by clicking on one of the category filter buttons (3) added by the conference. And if your conference has been using Learning Toolbox for several years, then you can also use the drop down menu (4) to switch to view stacks/ePosters from another year.

Alternatively you can browse by simply scrolling down the showcase screen. More stacks/ePosters will appear as you scroll down the page.

You will then be able to view any chat messages that have been posted to the stack/ePoster and send your own message. You can also choose to turn on email notifications if you want to receive emails when new chat messages are posted to this ePoster. The email notifications will be sent to the email address that you used when signing in to Learning Toolbox.

You can favourite any stack/ePoster by clicking on the star-shaped favourite button.

The Favourite button

You can filter the view to see all the ePosters that you have favourited in a showcase by clicking on the My Favourites button on the Showcase. If you are not signed in then your favourites will just include the showcase stacks/ePosters you have favourited on the device you are using. If you have signed-in then your favourites will include all the showcase stacks/ePosters that you have favourited (when signed-in with this account) on any device. To turn off this filter just click on the My Favourites button again.

My Favourites button on the Showcase

You can also see your list of your favourited ePosters when you are viewing an ePoster. Just click on the More Menu (1) and choose My Favourites (2).

You can get notifications of new chat activity either by email or by using the Learning Toolbox App.

Getting email notifications of new chat activity

When you open the chat on any ePoster you will see a switch at the top that allows you to turn on email notifications. If you turn this on then you will be sent email notifications of any new chat activity on this ePoster. The emails will be sent to the email address you used when signing into Learning Toolbox.

Getting push notifications of new chat activity using the Learning Toolbox App

If you want to get push notifications of new chat activity using the App then you need to:

  • Sign-in to Learning Toolbox (you will be prompted to sign in if you click on an ePoster’s chat icon)
  • Favourite the stack/ePoster you want to follow (if you are the editing author you do not need to do this step)
  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and make sure you agree to accept notifications
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and sign-in to the App
  • You can also browse, search, interact with, chat and favourite stacks/ePosters in the App on your phone
  • Now, even if you close the App on your phone, then whenever there is any new chat activity on any of your favourited stacks/ePosters then you will receive a notification on your phone.

To share a stack/ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Share (2).

This will show you the stack/ePoster’s key information including its QR code (3) and unique web address (4). If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

To download the Android App search for Learning Toolbox in the Google Play Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below. 

To download the iOS App search for Learning Toolbox in the App Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below.

As well as exploring the stacks/ePosters on the showcase website, you can also choose to view and interact with them in the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet.

  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App
  • You can now search for the stack/ePoster by pressing the More Menu (1) and choosing Search (2).

Another way you can open the stack/ePoster in the App is to find and scan its QR code.

You can find the QR code from the showcase. Click on the stack/ePoster’s QR code icon (3) in the showcase and this will show onscreen its unique QR code (4).

You can then scan that QR code using the QR code scanner (5) built into the Learning Toolbox App. The stack/ePoster will then open in the App on your phone/tablet.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

  1. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search

By default (with the search box left blank) this will then list all the stacks/ePosters in that event’s showcase.

You can also search for a specific stack/ePoster in the showcase by typing in the search box and then choosing the field (All/Tags/Title/Author) you want to search

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

mini-poster – can be used as an advert for and gateway into your ePoster

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Category: FAQ - Edit

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

Category: FAQ - Edit

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

Creating an ePoster/Stack

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

Getting push notifications of new chat activity using the Learning Toolbox App

If you want to get push notifications of new chat activity using the App then you need to:

  • Sign-in to Learning Toolbox (you will be prompted to sign in if you click on an ePoster’s chat icon)
  • Favourite the stack/ePoster you want to follow (if you are the editing author you do not need to do this step)
  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and make sure you agree to accept notifications
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and sign-in to the App
  • You can also browse, search, interact with, chat and favourite stacks/ePosters in the App on your phone
  • Now, even if you close the App on your phone, then whenever there is any new chat activity on any of your favourited stacks/ePosters then you will receive a notification on your phone.

To share a stack/ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Share (2).

This will show you the stack/ePoster’s key information including its QR code (3) and unique web address (4). If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

To download the Android App search for Learning Toolbox in the Google Play Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below. 

To download the iOS App search for Learning Toolbox in the App Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below.

As well as exploring the stacks/ePosters on the showcase website, you can also choose to view and interact with them in the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet.

  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App
  • You can now search for the stack/ePoster by pressing the More Menu (1) and choosing Search (2).

Another way you can open the stack/ePoster in the App is to find and scan its QR code.

You can find the QR code from the showcase. Click on the stack/ePoster’s QR code icon (3) in the showcase and this will show onscreen its unique QR code (4).

You can then scan that QR code using the QR code scanner (5) built into the Learning Toolbox App. The stack/ePoster will then open in the App on your phone/tablet.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

  1. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search

By default (with the search box left blank) this will then list all the stacks/ePosters in that event’s showcase.

You can also search for a specific stack/ePoster in the showcase by typing in the search box and then choosing the field (All/Tags/Title/Author) you want to search

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

mini-poster – can be used as an advert for and gateway into your ePoster

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Category: FAQ - Edit

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

Category: FAQ - Edit

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.

Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Co-authors

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

To download the Android App search for Learning Toolbox in the Google Play Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below. 

To download the iOS App search for Learning Toolbox in the App Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below.

As well as exploring the stacks/ePosters on the showcase website, you can also choose to view and interact with them in the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet.

  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App
  • You can now search for the stack/ePoster by pressing the More Menu (1) and choosing Search (2).

Another way you can open the stack/ePoster in the App is to find and scan its QR code.

You can find the QR code from the showcase. Click on the stack/ePoster’s QR code icon (3) in the showcase and this will show onscreen its unique QR code (4).

You can then scan that QR code using the QR code scanner (5) built into the Learning Toolbox App. The stack/ePoster will then open in the App on your phone/tablet.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

  1. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search

By default (with the search box left blank) this will then list all the stacks/ePosters in that event’s showcase.

You can also search for a specific stack/ePoster in the showcase by typing in the search box and then choosing the field (All/Tags/Title/Author) you want to search

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Category: FAQ - Edit

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

Category: FAQ - Edit

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.

Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.

Adding content and resources to my ePoster/stack

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

Getting push notifications of new chat activity using the Learning Toolbox App

If you want to get push notifications of new chat activity using the App then you need to:

  • Sign-in to Learning Toolbox (you will be prompted to sign in if you click on an ePoster’s chat icon)
  • Favourite the stack/ePoster you want to follow (if you are the editing author you do not need to do this step)
  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and make sure you agree to accept notifications
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and sign-in to the App
  • You can also browse, search, interact with, chat and favourite stacks/ePosters in the App on your phone
  • Now, even if you close the App on your phone, then whenever there is any new chat activity on any of your favourited stacks/ePosters then you will receive a notification on your phone.

To share a stack/ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Share (2).

This will show you the stack/ePoster’s key information including its QR code (3) and unique web address (4). If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.

Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.

Changing the layout and appearance of a tile

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

You can also see your list of your favourited ePosters when you are viewing an ePoster. Just click on the More Menu (1) and choose My Favourites (2).

You can get notifications of new chat activity either by email or by using the Learning Toolbox App.

Getting email notifications of new chat activity

When you open the chat on any ePoster you will see a switch at the top that allows you to turn on email notifications. If you turn this on then you will be sent email notifications of any new chat activity on this ePoster. The emails will be sent to the email address you used when signing into Learning Toolbox.

Getting push notifications of new chat activity using the Learning Toolbox App

If you want to get push notifications of new chat activity using the App then you need to:

  • Sign-in to Learning Toolbox (you will be prompted to sign in if you click on an ePoster’s chat icon)
  • Favourite the stack/ePoster you want to follow (if you are the editing author you do not need to do this step)
  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and make sure you agree to accept notifications
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and sign-in to the App
  • You can also browse, search, interact with, chat and favourite stacks/ePosters in the App on your phone
  • Now, even if you close the App on your phone, then whenever there is any new chat activity on any of your favourited stacks/ePosters then you will receive a notification on your phone.

To share a stack/ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Share (2).

This will show you the stack/ePoster’s key information including its QR code (3) and unique web address (4). If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

To download the Android App search for Learning Toolbox in the Google Play Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

  1. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search

By default (with the search box left blank) this will then list all the stacks/ePosters in that event’s showcase.

You can also search for a specific stack/ePoster in the showcase by typing in the search box and then choosing the field (All/Tags/Title/Author) you want to search

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

mini-poster – can be used as an advert for and gateway into your ePoster

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Category: FAQ - Edit

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

Category: FAQ - Edit

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

For most conferences you do not have to sign-in to Learning Toolbox in order to view the stacks/ePosters. However, there are still advantages to signing in:

  • If you are signed in then you can view and add to the chat thread on any stack/ePoster
  • If you are signed in then we will remember which stacks/ePosters you have favourited (when signed in) and you will be able to return to them easily even when you sign-in on a different device
  • If you sign-in then you can receive notifications (using the Learning Toolbox App) of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters

To sign-in from the showcase simply click on the Sign-in button (1) under the showcase banner. This will then offer you the option to sign in using various social media accounts or to set-up your own local Learning Toolbox account.

Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.

Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.

Amy Creaser’s ePoster for Future Physiology

Amy gives a short introduction to her work (on wearable activity trackers use by children and adolescents) and shows us her ePoster. In the ePoster tour Amy explains what she chose to include in her ePoster and why. The ePoster tour starts at 2:10

Komal Atta’s ePoster for AMEE

Komal gives a short introduction to her work (on the impact of social media on professional identity) and shows us her ePoster. In the ePoster tour Komal explains what she chose to include in the ePoster and why. The ePoster tour starts at 2:20

Adding an extra screen/layer to my ePoster/stack

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

If you have signed-in then your favourites will include all the showcase stacks/ePosters that you have favourited (when signed-in with this account) on any device. To turn off this filter just click on the My Favourites button again.

My Favourites button on the Showcase

You can also see your list of your favourited ePosters when you are viewing an ePoster. Just click on the More Menu (1) and choose My Favourites (2).

You can get notifications of new chat activity either by email or by using the Learning Toolbox App.

Getting email notifications of new chat activity

When you open the chat on any ePoster you will see a switch at the top that allows you to turn on email notifications. If you turn this on then you will be sent email notifications of any new chat activity on this ePoster. The emails will be sent to the email address you used when signing into Learning Toolbox.

Getting push notifications of new chat activity using the Learning Toolbox App

If you want to get push notifications of new chat activity using the App then you need to:

  • Sign-in to Learning Toolbox (you will be prompted to sign in if you click on an ePoster’s chat icon)
  • Favourite the stack/ePoster you want to follow (if you are the editing author you do not need to do this step)
  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and make sure you agree to accept notifications
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and sign-in to the App
  • You can also browse, search, interact with, chat and favourite stacks/ePosters in the App on your phone
  • Now, even if you close the App on your phone, then whenever there is any new chat activity on any of your favourited stacks/ePosters then you will receive a notification on your phone.

To share a stack/ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Share (2).

This will show you the stack/ePoster’s key information including its QR code (3) and unique web address (4). If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

To download the Android App search for Learning Toolbox in the Google Play Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below. 

To download the iOS App search for Learning Toolbox in the App Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below.

As well as exploring the stacks/ePosters on the showcase website, you can also choose to view and interact with them in the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet.

  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App
  • You can now search for the stack/ePoster by pressing the More Menu (1) and choosing Search (2).

Another way you can open the stack/ePoster in the App is to find and scan its QR code.

You can find the QR code from the showcase. Click on the stack/ePoster’s QR code icon (3) in the showcase and this will show onscreen its unique QR code (4).

You can then scan that QR code using the QR code scanner (5) built into the Learning Toolbox App. The stack/ePoster will then open in the App on your phone/tablet.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

  1. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search

By default (with the search box left blank) this will then list all the stacks/ePosters in that event’s showcase.

You can also search for a specific stack/ePoster in the showcase by typing in the search box and then choosing the field (All/Tags/Title/Author) you want to search

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

mini-poster – can be used as an advert for and gateway into your ePoster

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Category: FAQ - Edit

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

Category: FAQ - Edit

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.

Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.

Amy Creaser’s ePoster for Future Physiology

Amy gives a short introduction to her work (on wearable activity trackers use by children and adolescents) and shows us her ePoster. In the ePoster tour Amy explains what she chose to include in her ePoster and why. The ePoster tour starts at 2:10

Komal Atta’s ePoster for AMEE

Komal gives a short introduction to her work (on the impact of social media on professional identity) and shows us her ePoster. In the ePoster tour Komal explains what she chose to include in the ePoster and why. The ePoster tour starts at 2:20

Viewing and checking my ePoster/stack

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

To open and explore the stacks/ePosters from the Showcase:

Click on the title (1) to open it

Open an ePoster from the Showcase
  • Click on any Tile (2) to explore its content
  • Click on the X button (3) to close the viewer and return to the Showcase
Explore and then close an ePoster

If the author has provided the full list of authors in their ePoster details then you can also view the full list of authors whilst browsing the ePosters on the showcase. Just move your mouse over the author’s name and the full list of authors will show up.

On the showcase you can search by typing your search text in the search box (1) and pressing enter. The search looks for matches in the ePoster title, authors, poster number (if included by the conference) and description. If you want to search for a specific phrase then enclose it in quote marks (e.g. “simulation in teaching” or “Joan Davis”).

Search and filter options

You can also choose to search by Tags. Click on the Tags button (2) and then start typing the tag name you want to search for in the Tag box that appears. The system will suggest matching tags from those that are being used by authors in this showcase. You can also search by Tags by simply clicking on a Tag in an ePoster’s summary box.

You can filter the ePoster’s on view by clicking on one of the category filter buttons (3) added by the conference. And if your conference has been using Learning Toolbox for several years, then you can also use the drop down menu (4) to switch to view stacks/ePosters from another year.

Alternatively you can browse by simply scrolling down the showcase screen. More stacks/ePosters will appear as you scroll down the page.

The email notifications will be sent to the email address that you used when signing in to Learning Toolbox.

You can favourite any stack/ePoster by clicking on the star-shaped favourite button.

The Favourite button

You can filter the view to see all the ePosters that you have favourited in a showcase by clicking on the My Favourites button on the Showcase. If you are not signed in then your favourites will just include the showcase stacks/ePosters you have favourited on the device you are using. If you have signed-in then your favourites will include all the showcase stacks/ePosters that you have favourited (when signed-in with this account) on any device. To turn off this filter just click on the My Favourites button again.

My Favourites button on the Showcase

You can also see your list of your favourited ePosters when you are viewing an ePoster. Just click on the More Menu (1) and choose My Favourites (2).

You can get notifications of new chat activity either by email or by using the Learning Toolbox App.

Getting email notifications of new chat activity

When you open the chat on any ePoster you will see a switch at the top that allows you to turn on email notifications. If you turn this on then you will be sent email notifications of any new chat activity on this ePoster. The emails will be sent to the email address you used when signing into Learning Toolbox.

Getting push notifications of new chat activity using the Learning Toolbox App

If you want to get push notifications of new chat activity using the App then you need to:

  • Sign-in to Learning Toolbox (you will be prompted to sign in if you click on an ePoster’s chat icon)
  • Favourite the stack/ePoster you want to follow (if you are the editing author you do not need to do this step)
  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and make sure you agree to accept notifications
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and sign-in to the App
  • You can also browse, search, interact with, chat and favourite stacks/ePosters in the App on your phone
  • Now, even if you close the App on your phone, then whenever there is any new chat activity on any of your favourited stacks/ePosters then you will receive a notification on your phone.

To share a stack/ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Share (2).

This will show you the stack/ePoster’s key information including its QR code (3) and unique web address (4). If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

To download the Android App search for Learning Toolbox in the Google Play Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below. 

To download the iOS App search for Learning Toolbox in the App Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below.

As well as exploring the stacks/ePosters on the showcase website, you can also choose to view and interact with them in the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet.

  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App
  • You can now search for the stack/ePoster by pressing the More Menu (1) and choosing Search (2).

Another way you can open the stack/ePoster in the App is to find and scan its QR code.

You can find the QR code from the showcase. Click on the stack/ePoster’s QR code icon (3) in the showcase and this will show onscreen its unique QR code (4).

You can then scan that QR code using the QR code scanner (5) built into the Learning Toolbox App. The stack/ePoster will then open in the App on your phone/tablet.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

  1. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search

By default (with the search box left blank) this will then list all the stacks/ePosters in that event’s showcase.

You can also search for a specific stack/ePoster in the showcase by typing in the search box and then choosing the field (All/Tags/Title/Author) you want to search

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

mini-poster – can be used as an advert for and gateway into your ePoster

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Category: FAQ - Edit

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

Category: FAQ - Edit

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.

Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.

Your ePoster on the showcase website

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

To open and explore the stacks/ePosters from the Showcase:

Click on the title (1) to open it

Open an ePoster from the Showcase
  • Click on any Tile (2) to explore its content
  • Click on the X button (3) to close the viewer and return to the Showcase
Explore and then close an ePoster

If the author has provided the full list of authors in their ePoster details then you can also view the full list of authors whilst browsing the ePosters on the showcase. Just move your mouse over the author’s name and the full list of authors will show up.

On the showcase you can search by typing your search text in the search box (1) and pressing enter. The search looks for matches in the ePoster title, authors, poster number (if included by the conference) and description. If you want to search for a specific phrase then enclose it in quote marks (e.g. “simulation in teaching” or “Joan Davis”).

Search and filter options

You can also choose to search by Tags. Click on the Tags button (2) and then start typing the tag name you want to search for in the Tag box that appears. The system will suggest matching tags from those that are being used by authors in this showcase. You can also search by Tags by simply clicking on a Tag in an ePoster’s summary box.

You can filter the ePoster’s on view by clicking on one of the category filter buttons (3) added by the conference. And if your conference has been using Learning Toolbox for several years, then you can also use the drop down menu (4) to switch to view stacks/ePosters from another year.

Alternatively you can browse by simply scrolling down the showcase screen. More stacks/ePosters will appear as you scroll down the page.

The email notifications will be sent to the email address that you used when signing in to Learning Toolbox.

You can favourite any stack/ePoster by clicking on the star-shaped favourite button.

The Favourite button

You can filter the view to see all the ePosters that you have favourited in a showcase by clicking on the My Favourites button on the Showcase. If you are not signed in then your favourites will just include the showcase stacks/ePosters you have favourited on the device you are using. If you have signed-in then your favourites will include all the showcase stacks/ePosters that you have favourited (when signed-in with this account) on any device. To turn off this filter just click on the My Favourites button again.

My Favourites button on the Showcase

You can also see your list of your favourited ePosters when you are viewing an ePoster. Just click on the More Menu (1) and choose My Favourites (2).

You can get notifications of new chat activity either by email or by using the Learning Toolbox App.

Getting email notifications of new chat activity

When you open the chat on any ePoster you will see a switch at the top that allows you to turn on email notifications. If you turn this on then you will be sent email notifications of any new chat activity on this ePoster. The emails will be sent to the email address you used when signing into Learning Toolbox.

Getting push notifications of new chat activity using the Learning Toolbox App

If you want to get push notifications of new chat activity using the App then you need to:

  • Sign-in to Learning Toolbox (you will be prompted to sign in if you click on an ePoster’s chat icon)
  • Favourite the stack/ePoster you want to follow (if you are the editing author you do not need to do this step)
  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and make sure you agree to accept notifications
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet and sign-in to the App
  • You can also browse, search, interact with, chat and favourite stacks/ePosters in the App on your phone
  • Now, even if you close the App on your phone, then whenever there is any new chat activity on any of your favourited stacks/ePosters then you will receive a notification on your phone.

To share a stack/ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Share (2).

This will show you the stack/ePoster’s key information including its QR code (3) and unique web address (4). If you show the QR code to someone they can scan it and open the stack/ePoster on their phone. If you copy the web address then you can send it to someone who can click on it and open the stack/ePoster. You can also choose to share the ePoster to Twitter (5).

As well as viewing the stacks/ePosters in a web browser, you can also view and interact with them on your phone or tablet using the Learning Toolbox App. 

Using the App also allows you to get notifications of new chat activity on your favourited stacks/ePosters. When you install the App make sure that you agree to accept notifications if you want to receive these.

To download the Android App search for Learning Toolbox in the Google Play Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below. 

To download the iOS App search for Learning Toolbox in the App Store or use your phone to scan the QR code below.

As well as exploring the stacks/ePosters on the showcase website, you can also choose to view and interact with them in the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet.

  • Install the Learning Toolbox App on your phone or tablet
  • Open the Learning Toolbox App
  • You can now search for the stack/ePoster by pressing the More Menu (1) and choosing Search (2).

Another way you can open the stack/ePoster in the App is to find and scan its QR code.

You can find the QR code from the showcase. Click on the stack/ePoster’s QR code icon (3) in the showcase and this will show onscreen its unique QR code (4).

You can then scan that QR code using the QR code scanner (5) built into the Learning Toolbox App. The stack/ePoster will then open in the App on your phone/tablet.

Remember to also sign-in to Learning Toolbox (6) and to favourite the stack/ePoster if you want to easily return to it or get notifications of new chat activity.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

  1. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search

By default (with the search box left blank) this will then list all the stacks/ePosters in that event’s showcase.

You can also search for a specific stack/ePoster in the showcase by typing in the search box and then choosing the field (All/Tags/Title/Author) you want to search

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

mini-poster – can be used as an advert for and gateway into your ePoster

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Category: FAQ - Edit

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

LTB Showcase
Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

Category: FAQ - Edit

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.

Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link. If you have not received and activated your invite link then read this FAQ answer [How do I find my invite link].

Do you see the Getting Started Page (image below) when you click on Create Stack?

Getting Started Page

If you see the Getting Started Page then this means your account does not have permission to make an ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You are not signed in. Check that you are signed in. If you are not signed in then click on Sign In and make sure to sign in using the same account as you used when you activated your invite.

Author is not signed in

You are signed in but not with the account that you used when you activated your invite. Please sign out and then sign back in again making sure you use the same account that you used when you activated your invite. You will have received an email from Learning Toolbox (no_reply@ltb.io) when you activated your invite reminding you what account you used to do this.

Author is signed in but not with the same account they used to activate their invite link

In order to create a stack/ePoster in Learning Toolbox for a conference you must have activated the invite link you were sent for that conference stack/ePoster and you must have signed in using the same account you used when you activated your invite link.

If you click on Create Stack then you will see the list of the invites that you have activated (as shown in the example screenshot below).

Example screenshot showing a user’s list of activated invites

If you do not see your ePoster invite in the list then this indicates that the account you are using does not yet have permission to create that ePoster/stack. There are two possible reasons for this:

You have not yet activated that ePoster/stack’s invite. If you are making more than one ePoster/stack for a conference then you will have been sent a separate invite email for each of your ePoster/stacks. You need to activate each one. If you have not yet activated this ePoster’s invite then find the invite email (it will have been sent to you by no_reply@ltb.io) and click on the invite link and sign-in.

You activated that ePoster/stack with a different account. Sometimes authors accidentally activate their ePoster invites with different accounts (e.g. activating their first ePoster invite by signing in using Google and activating their second ePoster invite by making a local account). If you have done this by accident and you want all your invites connected to the same account then please contact your conference support team (click on Support to see the email address or look for their address on the Getting Started Page) and they should be able to sort that out for you.

If you are creating (or have created) ePosters for more than one conference (e.g. AMEE 2022 and NASS 2021) then you will be an author in more than one domain in Learning Toolbox (e.g. both AMEE and NASS).

When you sign-in to Learning Toolbox you will automatically be in the domain that you most recently accessed. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will only show you your activated invitations or stacks that are part of that domain.

You can see which domain you are in by looking at the top right hand corner of the screen. Next to your name it will show you the name of the domain. Next to the Signed In button it will show you the logo of that domain.

To switch to another domain you click on the Signed In button and choose the domain from the drop-down menu.

You will then see that the domain name and the domain logo change to the new domain. If you click on Create Stack or Stacks then it will show you your activated invitations or stacks within this domain.

Marking your ePoster as ready to publish to the showcase

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox.

This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Kubify is offering Leeds Hub members the opportunity to increase their visibility in the Hub in a way that help us all to find and connect with fellow Hub entrepreneurs.

All Leeds Hub members will be able to use Kubify’s Learning Toolbox to create an ePoster presenting their business. These ePosters will then be displayed in the Hub, giving us all an overview of who is here, what they do and how to contact them.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster. You don’t need to make new material, it is just about choosing which existing information you have that you’d like to highlight to your fellow entrepreneurs and then adding that to your ePoster.

Learning Toolbox ePosters are actually hybrid ePosters. It’s not all E! There is still a paper part involved. Your ePoster consists of a paper mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

The mini-posters will be printed and displayed on a wall in the Hub. People will be able to browse the mini-posters and then view and explore your ePoster on their smartphones or tablets by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster. To scan and view the ePosters people can either use a standard QR code scanner and open the ePoster in their web browser or download the free Learning Toolbox app and open the ePoster in that.

The ePosters can also be published to the NatWest Hub Showcase website that will be created by Learning Toolbox. Here you will be able to search for ePosters by title, author or tags.

The aim is to have everything finished by 30th October, so that we can print and display the mini-posters and publish the Posters. But the ePosters are never locked, so you will be able to continue to edit and add to the ePoster even after that date.

If you are the author of a stack/ePoster at an event then your account will already follow that event’s showcase and (if you are signed in to the App) you can choose to search the showcase in the App.

If you are a delegate at an event then you will need to first follow the showcase in the App. After you have done this you will always be able to choose to search across just this event’s showcase in the App. To follow the showcase in the App:

  1. Open in the App any stack/ePoster from the event that you want to follow. Click on the More Menu
  2. Choose Share
  3. Click on Star next to the Event name (you are now following this event’s showcase)

To search a followed showcase in the App:

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.

Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.

ePoster Showcase Website – Browse, Search, Explore & Interact with the ePosters

Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.

Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.

Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

Learning Toolbox Showcase

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

Sign in to the Learning Toolbox website https://my.ltb.io/ and then:

  1. Click on the Stacks menu
  2. Click on the title bar of your ePoster/stack to open it
  3. Click on the Edit button to open the editor
  4. You can now edit it as normal. Remember to Save regularly.

These steps are shown in the annotated screenshots below.

If you are adding a lot of material to your stack then you may find it useful to create an extra screen. You can do this by using the Stack Screen tile. This will allow you to add a tile that creates and opens a new screen.

To create an extra screen:

  • Add a stack screen tile to your stack (1)
  • The settings area will show which screen that tile is currently pointing at. Click on the down arrow (2) next to the target screen name and then choose “Create New Screen” from the menu that appears.

  • This will immediately create a new empty screen (which will be connected to the stack screen tile you added) and move you to that empty screen
  • It will give it a default screen name (3) which you can edit and change to something more meaningful
  • You can now add new tiles to this screen as normal

  • Note that there is always a bar visible in the window that shows you the name of the current screen you are editing (4)
  • When you want to move to another screen (e.g. back to the start screen) you can just click on the menu next to the current screen name (5) and choose the name of the screen you want to move to

 

We know that some people prefer to follow a written guide, so we have produced this short guide that takes you through the key steps involved in making a simple ePoster/stack for a conference.
