AMEE 2021 – ePosters and Learning Toolbox

The following dates are important:

  • 10th May at 12 noon (London, UK time) Webinar Introduction to making your ePoster and how ePosters will work at AMEE 2024. Zoom link.
  • 1st July AMEE ePoster Competition DEADLINE (OPTIONAL) If you want your ePoster to be entered into the AMEE ePoster Competition then your ePoster stack must be complete and marked as ready to publish in Learning Toolbox by the end of the 1st July.
  • 1st August Final DEADLINE – Finalise your ePoster and mark it as ready to publish. 

All deadlines are at the time 23:59 Anywhere on Earth on the stated date.

Can you edit your ePoster after the deadline?

Yes, you will still be able to edit and save the ePoster after the deadline. We do not lock the ePosters even when they are published. Viewers will always be able to see the most recently saved version of your ePoster. ​The deadline has been set to give us time to check the ePosters before publishing them and to ensure that we have time to send the printable summary posters to the printers. 

So please ensure that your ePoster is ready to be published by the deadline date, but do not worry if you want to make changes or add more after that date – that will still be possible.

General overview

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.

If your country does not allow access to the Vimeo video streaming service then you can access this video here instead.

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.

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.
