ICRP 2021+1, ePosters and Learning Toolbox
ICRP are using Learning Toolbox for the ePosters and Task Group ePosters at their 2021+1 conference.
Learning Toolbox allows you to create a bundle of information (we call it a Stack) that can be used to present and share your work online and onsite. At the simplest level you can just add a presentation or poster file to your Stack, but the platform allows you to do much more. Learning Toolbox Stacks can also contain additional materials such as videos, weblinks, papers and more.
Your ePoster stack can contain much more than just a PDF file
How will delegates engage with the ePosters?
Delegates will be able to browse, search, view and interact with the ePosters stacks on their own devices (smartphones, tablets or laptops). There will be two key ways that delegates can access the ePoster stacks (1) Through the showcase website (2) At the mini-poster wall.
The ePoster Showcase website
Delegates will be able to access the ePoster showcase through the conference app. Here they can browse, search, open and explore any of the ICRP ePosters.
The Mini-Poster Wall
Learning Toolbox will make a mini-poster for each ePoster (you choose the summary text and key image). By scanning the QR code on the mini-poster delegates will be able to view and interact with your ePoster stack on their own phone.
ICRP will print and display these mini-posters onsite, providing delegates with an easy way to browse, access and explore your work.
Exploring and interacting with the ePosters
From either the showcase website or the mini-poster wall, delegates can open your ePoster stack and click on the tiles to explore all the rich content you have added. They 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. Delegates can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.
What support will be available to authors?
You will have plenty of support to use Learning Toolbox. We will be running a webinar for authors and an email helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be available to answer any ePoster questions you have. The Support Page itself also includes a 3 minute introduction to the Learning Toolbox editor, a demo video and answers to frequently asked questions.
These extra instructions ONLY APPLY TO TASK GROUP ePOSTER AUTHORS.
ICRP’s specific instructions for Task Group ePoster authors have been sent by email in July and are also included below:
There are two key actions you must complete by FRIDAY 9 SEPTEMBER
- You should create your ePoster stack in Kubify’s Learning Toolbox and add your abstract to it.
- You should upload your video and/or poster file to this Dropbox folder: https://www.dropbox.com/request/7Yqdw7pg7VrH0DHaELdq
ICRP will then review and add branding to your video and/or poster file. They will then add the video and/or poster file to your ePoster stack in Learning Toolbox. The requirements for the Video and Poster file are given further below.
After 9 September 2022, you can continue to edit your ePoster stack in Learning Toolbox until 21 October 2022. You may want to add extra information such as:
• articles or papers written/published by your group
• links to relevant websites and information
• presentation slides
Requirements for Video and/or Poster file to be uploaded to Dropbox
• Minimum: 5min, maximum: 20min
• MP4 format, or you can send a PPT with your embedded audio
• If you present a slideshow in your video, please also upload your slides. ICRP may use these to fix video errors or enlarge graphics (these will NOT be uploaded for viewers to see outside of the video unless you explicitly express that you want to make them available)
• Please use the latest ICRP PowerPoint template when making your slides
• Please do not record the video using your phone in portrait mode – ICRP will ask you to re-record it if you do
• One A4 page
• If you are uploading a digital poster in any form, please also upload any graphics or photos you used
• Finalised posters will be presented in PDF form, but it is not necessary to provide a PDF at this stage
• If you would like help with formatting, you are more than welcome to submit a word document with text and images in the order you would like it to be read. ICRP will then work with you to finalise the look of the poster
If you need any help with producing the video or poster or uploading them to Dropbox, please contact Charlotte White at ICRP email@example.com
If you need any help with using Learning Toolbox then please contact the support team at firstname.lastname@example.org

Creating an ePoster/Stack
Getting started – Create an LTB stack for a conference v2.0 (updated 23rd May 2020)
Explore some example ePosters from a range of conferences and events
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.
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.
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.
