Key Information

AMEE 2022 Conference

If you are looking for general information about the AMEE Conference (rather than ePoster specific information) then please look at the AMEE 2022 & Ottawa 2022 Conference Page as it contains the full information about the conference.

AMEE 2022 ePosters and Learning Toolbox

AMEE and Ottawa are using Learning Toolbox for the ePosters at their 2022 conferences. For AMEE this is the 6th year that the platform has been used, so if you have been to previous AMEE conferences you may already be familiar with this innovative ePoster format.

Your ePoster can contain much more than just a PDF file

Learning Toolbox allows you to create a Stack of material 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.

The content you can add to your ePoster/stack

How will delegates engage with the ePosters onsite?

Onsite delegates will be able to browse, search, view and interact with your ePoster/stacks on their own devices.

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 the contents of your ePoster stack on their own phone.

AMEE will print and display these mini-posters onsite, providing onsite delegates with an easy way to access and explore your work.

The mini-poster wall onsite

All the ePosters will also be published to the AMEE or Ottawa ePoster Showcase online where onsite and remote delegates can explore, view and interact with them online throughout the conference and afterwards.

ePoster Showcase

Delegates can open your ePoster stack and 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.

Ways delegates can interact with your ePoster/stack

Presenting your ePoster

ePosters have been accepted by AMEE as either:

  • For a live presentation onsite
  • For a live presentation online (remote presentation)
  • For on-demand access

AMEE will have told you in which category your ePoster has been accepted.

Live presentations onsite

If your ePoster has been accepted for live presentation onsite then AMEE will have told you the date and time of your ePoster presentation session. You are expected to be present for the full 90 minutes of the ePoster presentation session. Up to 15 authors will present their ePosters in each presentation session. Each author will have 3 minutes to present and 2 minutes for questions. There will be a computer connected to the ePoster showcase and a projector. You will be able to open your ePoster and show any of the content that you have included in the ePoster. Delegates will be able to explore your full ePoster after the presentation, so you do not need to show everything.

We will also provide some guidance and answer questions about the live presentations as part of the second webinar we run for ePoster authors on the 8th August.

While you are making your ePoster, you will already be able to check how your ePoster stack will appear and work onscreen by clicking on its preview button.

Live presentations online (remote presentations)

If your ePoster has been accepted for live presentation online (remote presentation) then AMEE will have told you the date and time of your ePoster presentation session. You are expected to be present for the full 90 minutes of the ePoster presentation session. Please turn up early to your session to meet the Chair person and make sure you are ready to present. Up to 15 authors will present their ePosters in each presentation session. Each author will have 3 minutes to present and 2 minutes for questions. These remote sessions will be run using Zoom. Details of the Zoom meeting link will be sent to you before the conference. Within the Zoom meeting you will be able to share your screen and you can then open your ePoster and show any of the content that you have included in the ePoster. Delegates will be able to explore your full ePoster after the presentation, so you do not need to show everything.

On-demand access

If your ePoster has been accepted for on-demand access then you do not need to present your ePoster live. Your stack/ePoster will be published to AMEE ePoster Showcase where delegates can explore, view and interact with them throughout the conference and afterwards. Delegates will be able to post comments and questions to your stack/ePoster in a text chat channel, which you can answer and this discussion will be attached to your stack/ePoster. You will be able to turn on email notifications of new chat activity on your ePoster.

Your ePosters will be available for delegates to explore 24 hours per day – the sun will never set on the AMEE ePosters! Some of the most viewed ePosters in 2021 were ePosters that were accepted for on-demand access.

What support will be available?

You will have plenty of support to use Learning Toolbox before and during the conferences. There will be two webinars for authors (24th May and 8th August), an email helpdesk (support@stack.services) will be available to answer your ePoster questions in the run-up to the conference and there will be an onsite ePoster helpdesk during the conference itself.

In 2019, the AMEE TEL Committee first introduced an ePoster prize, and the prize will be awarded again in 2022. Because of the expected numbers of ePosters, the judges will be formed from the TEL Committee and from previous mounted poster judges.

  • The ePoster must have been created for the AMEE2022 Conference.
  • At least one author listed on the poster must be registered for the AMEE2022 Conference.

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.

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.

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.

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.
