EC-TEL 2018 is using a new and interactive approach to the poster sessions, based around the use of the Learning Toolbox ePoster platform.

You will not need to create or transport a paper poster to EC-TEL. Instead poster authors will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster providing an overview of your work. This ePoster can contain include 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 you can use this format to present your work.

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 on the mini-poster wall, in a prominent position at the EC-TEL conference. People will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster and then 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 will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference.

You will also present and discuss your ePoster at the ePoster BarCamp (a scheduled session in the EC-TEL conference programme). The ePoster BarCamp builds on the BarCamp and World Café formats and enhances these through the use of technology. The format aims to encourage and support discussion, the making of links between different authors’ work and shared knowledge development. The session adopts a participatory format during which conference participants will have the opportunity to find out more about the work of the ePoster authors, discuss the issues / themes that arise from their work and leave with their favourite ePosters in their pocket, on their smart phone / tablet.

We will be holding a webinar in August (date to be announced) when we will explain the BarCamp format and answer any questions you have about it.

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.

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster.

Your ePoster will have both a physical and online presence at your event: your mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster or 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.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and even add to it after the event. You can send out messages to your ePoster viewers within the ePoster and your viewers can post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event.

Please note this video was made for conference ePoster authors but the practical process described is almost identical for NatWest ePoster authors. The only difference you will see in the interface from the demo is that you will not see the options to mark your ePoster as ready to print and publish.

We know that some people find it easier 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. If you prefer written guides or are short of time then this guide may be a more helpful place for you to start. Getting started – Create an LTB ePoster for a conference v1.1

 

 

If you are the author of an ePoster for the AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium (to be held on Saturday 24th August) then there are some extra instructions regarding your ePoster from the TEL Committee. Please find these instructions in the link below.


ePoster instructions for AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium authors

Category: ePosters
Currently Learning Toolbox does not support live collaborative editing of an ePoster by multiple authors. Instead each ePoster has one person who takes on the editing author role.
If you have been sent an invite link to create an ePoster for a conference, then the first person who follows that link will be given the editing role.

The person who takes on the editing author role will be able to add their co-authors’ names to the ePoster by adding their names in the Authors field in the mini-poster section (How I make my mini-poster). However, their co-authors will not be able to edit the ePoster.

The editing author can also share the link to the ePoster with their co-authors (How do I share an ePoster from my computer) so that their co-authors can view the developing ePoster and email them with any feedback or suggestions. If they do this then they should make sure they change the ePoster permissions from Private to Hidden and Anonymous Access (How do I set access permissions) before sending the link to their co-authors.

If your co-author has followed the invite link after you then they will get a message explaining that the link has already been used. If you would like to switch the editing role to them then just contact support and we will be able to do this for you.

You can always return to a tile that you have previously added to your ePoster and edit it.

  1. Click on the edit icon on the tile that you want to edit. Note that the edit icon of the tile that is open for editing appears red.
  2. You can now make any changes you want to the content of the tile in the Settings tab
  3. And you can make any changes you want to the appearance of the tile in the Layout tab

 

  1. Click on the Layout tab
  2. Within the Layout tab you can change the tile size
  3. tile colour
  4. and set or change the background image

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app.

Click on the star icon (1) to favourite and follow the ePoster.

Click on the drop-down menu (2) and choose My Favourites (3) to browse all your favourite ePosters.

 

The exact details of how to present your ePoster (the time available and the location of the presentation) will vary from conference to conference.

However, we have included here some general advice on presenting the Learning Toolbox ePosters at conferences.

If you want to preview your ePoster in a web browser then you can just press the preview button (1) and the ePoster will open in a new tab in your browser (2). From here you can click on the tiles and check that it is working as you expected.

 

An easy way of sharing an ePoster with someone who you are talking to is to show them its QR code. They can scan this and view the ePoster on their own phone.

To do this you just need to open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app on your phone. Then open the drop-down menu (1) and choose Stack Info (2).

The screen will then show the QR code (3) of the ePoster you are viewing. The other person can use their phone to scan the QR code.

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox editor. Here you can see the QR code (1) and the unique web address (2) for this ePoster. You can copy these and share them or include them in your own dissemination material about your work. 

 

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

  1. Click on the Set Image button. This appears in the Layout tab for most tiles, but appears in the Settings tab for the File and Online Content tiles.

This opens the image selector. From here you can choose to:

2. Upload an image from your computer
3. Search the Pixabay repository of copy-right free images that are available for you to use
4. Pick an image you have previously used from Pixabay

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

5. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
6. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
6. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

You cannot upload files larger than 50MB. If you want to include a larger video file then upload it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YoutTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

 

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

 

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

1. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
2. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
3. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

To edit a tile simply click on its edit button in the top right hand corner. 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button on its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

Yourself!

We will be printing the mini posters, so your mini poster must be finished before the mini-poster deadline date. There will be a computer/tablet in the ePoster presentation room, from which your ePoster can be presented. You do not need to bring or upload anything. However you should visit the ePoster helpdesk on the day before your presentation slot, to make sure eveything is in order for you.

In short: Yes.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

The Pixabay image library that is integrated in Learning Toolbox, provides over 1 million images that can be freely used.

Privacy, Portrait right  and trademarks

This mouse is not protected.

In addition you should consider if depicted contents may be subject to additional copyrights, property rights, trademarks, protrait right, etc. and may require the consent of a third party or the license of these rights. For example the Disney’s image of Mickey Mouse is a protected trademark.

To do this you just need to open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app on your phone. Then open the drop-down menu (1) and choose Stack Info (2).

The screen will then show the QR code (3) of the ePoster you are viewing. The other person can use their phone to scan the QR code.

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox editor. Here you can see the QR code (1) and the unique web address (2) for this ePoster. You can copy these and share them or include them in your own dissemination material about your work. 

 

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

  1. Click on the Set Image button. This appears in the Layout tab for most tiles, but appears in the Settings tab for the File and Online Content tiles.

This opens the image selector. From here you can choose to:

2. Upload an image from your computer
3. Search the Pixabay repository of copy-right free images that are available for you to use
4. Pick an image you have previously used from Pixabay

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

5. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
6. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
6. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

You cannot upload files larger than 50MB. If you want to include a larger video file then upload it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YoutTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

 

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

 

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

1. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
2. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
3. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

To edit a tile simply click on its edit button in the top right hand corner. 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button on its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

We will be printing the mini posters, so your mini poster must be finished before the mini-poster deadline date. There will be a computer/tablet in the ePoster presentation room, from which your ePoster can be presented. You do not need to bring or upload anything. However you should visit the ePoster helpdesk on the day before your presentation slot, to make sure eveything is in order for you.

In short: Yes.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

The Pixabay image library that is integrated in Learning Toolbox, provides over 1 million images that can be freely used.

Privacy, Portrait right  and trademarks

This mouse is not protected.

In addition you should consider if depicted contents may be subject to additional copyrights, property rights, trademarks, protrait right, etc. and may require the consent of a third party or the license of these rights. For example the Disney’s image of Mickey Mouse is a protected trademark.

Need a quick guide

We know that some people find it easier 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.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Co-authors

EC-TEL 2018 is using a new and interactive approach to the poster sessions, based around the use of the Learning Toolbox ePoster platform.

You will not need to create or transport a paper poster to EC-TEL. Instead poster authors will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster providing an overview of your work. This ePoster can contain include 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 you can use this format to present your work.

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 on the mini-poster wall, in a prominent position at the EC-TEL conference. People will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster and then 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 will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference.

You will also present and discuss your ePoster at the ePoster BarCamp (a scheduled session in the EC-TEL conference programme). The ePoster BarCamp builds on the BarCamp and World Café formats and enhances these through the use of technology. The format aims to encourage and support discussion, the making of links between different authors’ work and shared knowledge development. The session adopts a participatory format during which conference participants will have the opportunity to find out more about the work of the ePoster authors, discuss the issues / themes that arise from their work and leave with their favourite ePosters in their pocket, on their smart phone / tablet.

We will be holding a webinar in August (date to be announced) when we will explain the BarCamp format and answer any questions you have about it.

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.

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster.

Your ePoster will have both a physical and online presence at your event: your mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster or 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.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and even add to it after the event. You can send out messages to your ePoster viewers within the ePoster and your viewers can post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event.

Please note this video was made for conference ePoster authors but the practical process described is almost identical for NatWest ePoster authors.

If you are the author of an ePoster for the AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium (to be held on Saturday 24th August) then there are some extra instructions regarding your ePoster from the TEL Committee. Please find these instructions in the link below.

Category: ePosters
Currently Learning Toolbox does not support live collaborative editing of an ePoster by multiple authors. Instead each ePoster has one person who takes on the editing author role.
If you have been sent an invite link to create an ePoster for a conference, then the first person who follows that link will be given the editing role.

The person who takes on the editing author role will be able to add their co-authors’ names to the ePoster by adding their names in the Authors field in the mini-poster section (How I make my mini-poster). However, their co-authors will not be able to edit the ePoster.

The editing author can also share the link to the ePoster with their co-authors (How do I share an ePoster from my computer) so that their co-authors can view the developing ePoster and email them with any feedback or suggestions. If they do this then they should make sure they change the ePoster permissions from Private to Hidden and Anonymous Access (How do I set access permissions) before sending the link to their co-authors.

If your co-author has followed the invite link after you then they will get a message explaining that the link has already been used. If you would like to switch the editing role to them then just contact support and we will be able to do this for you.

However you should visit the ePoster helpdesk on the day before your presentation slot, to make sure eveything is in order for you.

In short: Yes.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

The Pixabay image library that is integrated in Learning Toolbox, provides over 1 million images that can be freely used.

Adding content and resources to my ePoster/stack

EC-TEL 2018 is using a new and interactive approach to the poster sessions, based around the use of the Learning Toolbox ePoster platform.

You will not need to create or transport a paper poster to EC-TEL. Instead poster authors will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster providing an overview of your work. This ePoster can contain include 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 you can use this format to present your work.

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 on the mini-poster wall, in a prominent position at the EC-TEL conference. People will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster and then 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 will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference.

You will also present and discuss your ePoster at the ePoster BarCamp (a scheduled session in the EC-TEL conference programme). The ePoster BarCamp builds on the BarCamp and World Café formats and enhances these through the use of technology. The format aims to encourage and support discussion, the making of links between different authors’ work and shared knowledge development. The session adopts a participatory format during which conference participants will have the opportunity to find out more about the work of the ePoster authors, discuss the issues / themes that arise from their work and leave with their favourite ePosters in their pocket, on their smart phone / tablet.

We will be holding a webinar in August (date to be announced) when we will explain the BarCamp format and answer any questions you have about it.

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!

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.

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.

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster.

Your ePoster will have both a physical and online presence at your event: your mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster or 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.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and even add to it after the event. You can send out messages to your ePoster viewers within the ePoster and your viewers can post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event.

Please note this video was made for conference ePoster authors but the practical process described is almost identical for NatWest ePoster authors. The only difference you will see in the interface from the demo is that you will not see the options to mark your ePoster as ready to print and publish.

We know that some people find it easier 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. If you prefer written guides or are short of time then this guide may be a more helpful place for you to start. Getting started – Create an LTB ePoster for a conference v1.1

 

 

If you are the author of an ePoster for the AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium (to be held on Saturday 24th August) then there are some extra instructions regarding your ePoster from the TEL Committee. Please find these instructions in the link below.


ePoster instructions for AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium authors

Category: ePosters
Currently Learning Toolbox does not support live collaborative editing of an ePoster by multiple authors. Instead each ePoster has one person who takes on the editing author role.
If you have been sent an invite link to create an ePoster for a conference, then the first person who follows that link will be given the editing role.

The person who takes on the editing author role will be able to add their co-authors’ names to the ePoster by adding their names in the Authors field in the mini-poster section (How I make my mini-poster). However, their co-authors will not be able to edit the ePoster.

The editing author can also share the link to the ePoster with their co-authors (How do I share an ePoster from my computer) so that their co-authors can view the developing ePoster and email them with any feedback or suggestions. If they do this then they should make sure they change the ePoster permissions from Private to Hidden and Anonymous Access (How do I set access permissions) before sending the link to their co-authors.

If your co-author has followed the invite link after you then they will get a message explaining that the link has already been used. If you would like to switch the editing role to them then just contact support and we will be able to do this for you.

You can always return to a tile that you have previously added to your ePoster and edit it.

  1. Click on the edit icon on the tile that you want to edit. Note that the edit icon of the tile that is open for editing appears red.
  2. You can now make any changes you want to the content of the tile in the Settings tab
  3. And you can make any changes you want to the appearance of the tile in the Layout tab

 

  1. Click on the Layout tab
  2. Within the Layout tab you can change the tile size
  3. tile colour
  4. and set or change the background image

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app.

Click on the star icon (1) to favourite and follow the ePoster.

Click on the drop-down menu (2) and choose My Favourites (3) to browse all your favourite ePosters.

 

The exact details of how to present your ePoster (the time available and the location of the presentation) will vary from conference to conference.

However, we have included here some general advice on presenting the Learning Toolbox ePosters at conferences.

If you want to preview your ePoster in a web browser then you can just press the preview button (1) and the ePoster will open in a new tab in your browser (2). From here you can click on the tiles and check that it is working as you expected.

 

An easy way of sharing an ePoster with someone who you are talking to is to show them its QR code. They can scan this and view the ePoster on their own phone.

To do this you just need to open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app on your phone. Then open the drop-down menu (1) and choose Stack Info (2).

The screen will then show the QR code (3) of the ePoster you are viewing. The other person can use their phone to scan the QR code.

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox editor. Here you can see the QR code (1) and the unique web address (2) for this ePoster. You can copy these and share them or include them in your own dissemination material about your work. 

 

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

  1. Click on the Set Image button. This appears in the Layout tab for most tiles, but appears in the Settings tab for the File and Online Content tiles.

This opens the image selector. From here you can choose to:

2. Upload an image from your computer
3. Search the Pixabay repository of copy-right free images that are available for you to use
4. Pick an image you have previously used from Pixabay

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

5. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
6. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
6. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

You cannot upload files larger than 50MB. If you want to include a larger video file then upload it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YoutTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

 

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

 

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

1. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
2. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
3. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

To edit a tile simply click on its edit button in the top right hand corner. 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button on its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

The exact details of how to present your ePoster (the time available and the location of the presentation) will vary from conference to conference.

However, we have included here some general advice on presenting the Learning Toolbox ePosters at conferences.

If you want to preview your ePoster in a web browser then you can just press the preview button (1) and the ePoster will open in a new tab in your browser (2). From here you can click on the tiles and check that it is working as you expected.

 

An easy way of sharing an ePoster with someone who you are talking to is to show them its QR code. They can scan this and view the ePoster on their own phone.

To do this you just need to open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app on your phone. Then open the drop-down menu (1) and choose Stack Info (2).

The screen will then show the QR code (3) of the ePoster you are viewing. The other person can use their phone to scan the QR code.

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox editor. Here you can see the QR code (1) and the unique web address (2) for this ePoster. You can copy these and share them or include them in your own dissemination material about your work. 

 

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

  1. Click on the Set Image button. This appears in the Layout tab for most tiles, but appears in the Settings tab for the File and Online Content tiles.

This opens the image selector. From here you can choose to:

2. Upload an image from your computer
3. Search the Pixabay repository of copy-right free images that are available for you to use
4. Pick an image you have previously used from Pixabay

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

5. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
6. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
6. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

You cannot upload files larger than 50MB. If you want to include a larger video file then upload it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YoutTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

 

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

 

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

1. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
2. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
3. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

To edit a tile simply click on its edit button in the top right hand corner. 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button on its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

Yourself!

We will be printing the mini posters, so your mini poster must be finished before the mini-poster deadline date. There will be a computer/tablet in the ePoster presentation room, from which your ePoster can be presented. You do not need to bring or upload anything. However you should visit the ePoster helpdesk on the day before your presentation slot, to make sure eveything is in order for you.

In short: Yes.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

The Pixabay image library that is integrated in Learning Toolbox, provides over 1 million images that can be freely used.

Privacy, Portrait right  and trademarks

This mouse is not protected.

In addition you should consider if depicted contents may be subject to additional copyrights, property rights, trademarks, protrait right, etc. and may require the consent of a third party or the license of these rights. For example the Disney’s image of Mickey Mouse is a protected trademark.

Adding an extra screen/layer to my ePoster/stack

EC-TEL 2018 is using a new and interactive approach to the poster sessions, based around the use of the Learning Toolbox ePoster platform.

You will not need to create or transport a paper poster to EC-TEL. Instead poster authors will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster providing an overview of your work. This ePoster can contain include 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 you can use this format to present your work.

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 on the mini-poster wall, in a prominent position at the EC-TEL conference. People will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster and then 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 will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference.

You will also present and discuss your ePoster at the ePoster BarCamp (a scheduled session in the EC-TEL conference programme). The ePoster BarCamp builds on the BarCamp and World Café formats and enhances these through the use of technology. The format aims to encourage and support discussion, the making of links between different authors’ work and shared knowledge development. The session adopts a participatory format during which conference participants will have the opportunity to find out more about the work of the ePoster authors, discuss the issues / themes that arise from their work and leave with their favourite ePosters in their pocket, on their smart phone / tablet.

We will be holding a webinar in August (date to be announced) when we will explain the BarCamp format and answer any questions you have about it.

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.

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster.

Your ePoster will have both a physical and online presence at your event: your mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster or 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.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and even add to it after the event. You can send out messages to your ePoster viewers within the ePoster and your viewers can post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event.

Please note this video was made for conference ePoster authors but the practical process described is almost identical for NatWest ePoster authors. The only difference you will see in the interface from the demo is that you will not see the options to mark your ePoster as ready to print and publish.

We know that some people find it easier 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. If you prefer written guides or are short of time then this guide may be a more helpful place for you to start. Getting started – Create an LTB ePoster for a conference v1.1

 

 

If you are the author of an ePoster for the AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium (to be held on Saturday 24th August) then there are some extra instructions regarding your ePoster from the TEL Committee. Please find these instructions in the link below.


ePoster instructions for AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium authors

Category: ePosters
Currently Learning Toolbox does not support live collaborative editing of an ePoster by multiple authors. Instead each ePoster has one person who takes on the editing author role.
If you have been sent an invite link to create an ePoster for a conference, then the first person who follows that link will be given the editing role.

The person who takes on the editing author role will be able to add their co-authors’ names to the ePoster by adding their names in the Authors field in the mini-poster section (How I make my mini-poster). However, their co-authors will not be able to edit the ePoster.

The editing author can also share the link to the ePoster with their co-authors (How do I share an ePoster from my computer) so that their co-authors can view the developing ePoster and email them with any feedback or suggestions. If they do this then they should make sure they change the ePoster permissions from Private to Hidden and Anonymous Access (How do I set access permissions) before sending the link to their co-authors.

If your co-author has followed the invite link after you then they will get a message explaining that the link has already been used. If you would like to switch the editing role to them then just contact support and we will be able to do this for you.

Viewing and testing my ePoster/stack

EC-TEL 2018 is using a new and interactive approach to the poster sessions, based around the use of the Learning Toolbox ePoster platform.

You will not need to create or transport a paper poster to EC-TEL. Instead poster authors will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster providing an overview of your work. This ePoster can contain include 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 you can use this format to present your work.

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 on the mini-poster wall, in a prominent position at the EC-TEL conference. People will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster and then 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 will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference.

You will also present and discuss your ePoster at the ePoster BarCamp (a scheduled session in the EC-TEL conference programme). The ePoster BarCamp builds on the BarCamp and World Café formats and enhances these through the use of technology. The format aims to encourage and support discussion, the making of links between different authors’ work and shared knowledge development. The session adopts a participatory format during which conference participants will have the opportunity to find out more about the work of the ePoster authors, discuss the issues / themes that arise from their work and leave with their favourite ePosters in their pocket, on their smart phone / tablet.

We will be holding a webinar in August (date to be announced) when we will explain the BarCamp format and answer any questions you have about it.

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.

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster.

Your ePoster will have both a physical and online presence at your event: your mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster or 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.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and even add to it after the event. You can send out messages to your ePoster viewers within the ePoster and your viewers can post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event.

Please note this video was made for conference ePoster authors but the practical process described is almost identical for NatWest ePoster authors. The only difference you will see in the interface from the demo is that you will not see the options to mark your ePoster as ready to print and publish.

We know that some people find it easier 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. If you prefer written guides or are short of time then this guide may be a more helpful place for you to start. Getting started – Create an LTB ePoster for a conference v1.1

 

 

If you are the author of an ePoster for the AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium (to be held on Saturday 24th August) then there are some extra instructions regarding your ePoster from the TEL Committee. Please find these instructions in the link below.


ePoster instructions for AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium authors

Category: ePosters
Currently Learning Toolbox does not support live collaborative editing of an ePoster by multiple authors. Instead each ePoster has one person who takes on the editing author role.
If you have been sent an invite link to create an ePoster for a conference, then the first person who follows that link will be given the editing role.

The person who takes on the editing author role will be able to add their co-authors’ names to the ePoster by adding their names in the Authors field in the mini-poster section (How I make my mini-poster). However, their co-authors will not be able to edit the ePoster.

The editing author can also share the link to the ePoster with their co-authors (How do I share an ePoster from my computer) so that their co-authors can view the developing ePoster and email them with any feedback or suggestions. If they do this then they should make sure they change the ePoster permissions from Private to Hidden and Anonymous Access (How do I set access permissions) before sending the link to their co-authors.

If your co-author has followed the invite link after you then they will get a message explaining that the link has already been used. If you would like to switch the editing role to them then just contact support and we will be able to do this for you.

You can always return to a tile that you have previously added to your ePoster and edit it.

  1. Click on the edit icon on the tile that you want to edit. Note that the edit icon of the tile that is open for editing appears red.
  2. You can now make any changes you want to the content of the tile in the Settings tab
  3. And you can make any changes you want to the appearance of the tile in the Layout tab

 

  1. Click on the Layout tab
  2. Within the Layout tab you can change the tile size
  3. tile colour
  4. and set or change the background image

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app.

Click on the star icon (1) to favourite and follow the ePoster.

Click on the drop-down menu (2) and choose My Favourites (3) to browse all your favourite ePosters.

 

The exact details of how to present your ePoster (the time available and the location of the presentation) will vary from conference to conference.

However, we have included here some general advice on presenting the Learning Toolbox ePosters at conferences.

If you want to preview your ePoster in a web browser then you can just press the preview button (1) and the ePoster will open in a new tab in your browser (2). From here you can click on the tiles and check that it is working as you expected.

 

An easy way of sharing an ePoster with someone who you are talking to is to show them its QR code. They can scan this and view the ePoster on their own phone.

To do this you just need to open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app on your phone. Then open the drop-down menu (1) and choose Stack Info (2).

The screen will then show the QR code (3) of the ePoster you are viewing. The other person can use their phone to scan the QR code.

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox editor. Here you can see the QR code (1) and the unique web address (2) for this ePoster. You can copy these and share them or include them in your own dissemination material about your work. 

 

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

  1. Click on the Set Image button. This appears in the Layout tab for most tiles, but appears in the Settings tab for the File and Online Content tiles.

This opens the image selector. From here you can choose to:

2. Upload an image from your computer
3. Search the Pixabay repository of copy-right free images that are available for you to use
4. Pick an image you have previously used from Pixabay

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

5. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
6. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
6. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

You cannot upload files larger than 50MB. If you want to include a larger video file then upload it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YoutTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

 

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

 

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

1. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
2. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
3. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

To edit a tile simply click on its edit button in the top right hand corner. 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button on its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

Yourself!

We will be printing the mini posters, so your mini poster must be finished before the mini-poster deadline date. There will be a computer/tablet in the ePoster presentation room, from which your ePoster can be presented. You do not need to bring or upload anything. However you should visit the ePoster helpdesk on the day before your presentation slot, to make sure eveything is in order for you.

In short: Yes.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

An easy way of sharing an ePoster with someone who you are talking to is to show them its QR code. They can scan this and view the ePoster on their own phone.

To do this you just need to open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox app on your phone. Then open the drop-down menu (1) and choose Stack Info (2).

The screen will then show the QR code (3) of the ePoster you are viewing. The other person can use their phone to scan the QR code.

Open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox editor. Here you can see the QR code (1) and the unique web address (2) for this ePoster. You can copy these and share them or include them in your own dissemination material about your work. 

 

There are three main sections to the Learning Toolbox editing screen:

  1. The tile library shows all the different types of content you can add to your ePoster.
  2. Your ePoster. You see your ePoster as you build it. It is shown as it would appear on a mobile phone.
  3. The settings. The settings area changes dynamically depending on which part of the ePoster you are editing.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging the relevant tile from the tile library into your ePoster and then filling in the information required in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

  1. Click on the Set Image button. This appears in the Layout tab for most tiles, but appears in the Settings tab for the File and Online Content tiles.

This opens the image selector. From here you can choose to:

2. Upload an image from your computer
3. Search the Pixabay repository of copy-right free images that are available for you to use
4. Pick an image you have previously used from Pixabay

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

5. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
6. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
6. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

You can add a powerpoint presentation using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the powerpoint file from your computer.

Learning Toolbox will automatically convert your powerpoint presentation into a PDF file so that it can be viewed inside the PDF viewer within the Learning Toolbox app or within any web browser. This conversion takes a little time and there will appear a message telling you it is being processed (3). When the processing is finished then you will see the first slide in your presentation appear as the image on your File tile. You can edit the tile title and the tile image (as usual) if you want to change them.

There are two different ways in which you could include a video in your ePoster/Stack. Both approaches will allow the video to be played inside your ePoster.

As a File

You can add a video using the File Tile. Drag and drop a File tile from the Tile Library into your ePoster (1) and then click in the Add File box (2) in the Settings area and add the video file from your computer.

The file will be uploaded and will be processed. Whilst it is being processed there will be a default image showing on your file tile. Once the processing is finished then the tile will show a still image from your video as the tile image. However, you can continue editing and add other tiles whilst this processing is being done.

You cannot upload files larger than 50MB. If you want to include a larger video file then upload it to a video sharing platform first and then add it to your ePoster as an online content tile (see below).

2. As Online Content (Using YouTube or Vimeo)

Another way to add a video to your ePoster is to upload your video to a video sharing platform like YoutTube or Vimeo first. In Learning Toolbox you can then add an Online Content tile to your ePoster (A) and add in the url link (web address) to where your online video appears on the video sharing platform (B).

 

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

 

When you pick an image then you will have the chance to crop and resize it.

1. You can crop it by dragging and moving the image so that the area you want appears within the focus area.
2. You can resize the image using the resize scrollbar
3. Click on Apply when you are happy with the image preview. Note that the top section of the image will not show on your tile if you have used a tile title.

To edit a tile simply click on its edit button in the top right hand corner. 

To delete a tile, first click on its edit icon (top right hand corner) and then click on the delete button on its setting’s area.  Be careful to make sure you are deleting the correct tile. This delete cannot be undone.

Learning Toolbox automatically creates optimised and resized images to reduce use of bandwith without losing image quality.

For tile background images you want to make sure your that your cropped image –the square or oblong cut-out that you create using the LTB imagepicker–  has at least 400 pixels.

For your mini-Poster image you need to make sure that the cut-out has at least a 1000 pixel width left, especially when you aim to have it printed.

Don’t worry about measuring this exactly, you can just try what it looks like using the LTB app or the LTB webviewer.

You add content to your ePoster by dragging a tile from the Tile Library into the mobile phone view of your ePoster and then filling in the required information in the settings area.

A summary of the type of information you can add using each Tile is shown below.

Yourself!

We will be printing the mini posters, so your mini poster must be finished before the mini-poster deadline date. There will be a computer/tablet in the ePoster presentation room, from which your ePoster can be presented. You do not need to bring or upload anything. However you should visit the ePoster helpdesk on the day before your presentation slot, to make sure eveything is in order for you.

In short: Yes.

There are two things to consider. Firstly the copyright of the material and secondly whether it contains protected content matter.

Copyright, Copyleft

As a rule of thumb: Do not upload the work of others as your own. Only upload content of others if they have given you permission (or if they have licensed it under Creative Commons).

Another option is to use materials that have been specifically marked as no rights reserved, public domain or copyleft. Usually these works are released under a Creative Commons CC0 license and allow you to freely use them for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

The Pixabay image library that is integrated in Learning Toolbox, provides over 1 million images that can be freely used.

Privacy, Portrait right  and trademarks

This mouse is not protected.

In addition you should consider if depicted contents may be subject to additional copyrights, property rights, trademarks, protrait right, etc. and may require the consent of a third party or the license of these rights. For example the Disney’s image of Mickey Mouse is a protected trademark.

Presenting my ePoster

EC-TEL 2018 is using a new and interactive approach to the poster sessions, based around the use of the Learning Toolbox ePoster platform.

You will not need to create or transport a paper poster to EC-TEL. Instead poster authors will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster providing an overview of your work. This ePoster can contain include 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 you can use this format to present your work.

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 on the mini-poster wall, in a prominent position at the EC-TEL conference. People will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster and then 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 will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference.

You will also present and discuss your ePoster at the ePoster BarCamp (a scheduled session in the EC-TEL conference programme). The ePoster BarCamp builds on the BarCamp and World Café formats and enhances these through the use of technology. The format aims to encourage and support discussion, the making of links between different authors’ work and shared knowledge development. The session adopts a participatory format during which conference participants will have the opportunity to find out more about the work of the ePoster authors, discuss the issues / themes that arise from their work and leave with their favourite ePosters in their pocket, on their smart phone / tablet.

We will be holding a webinar in August (date to be announced) when we will explain the BarCamp format and answer any questions you have about it.

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.

Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters.

You will be able to include links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps within your ePoster.

Your ePoster will have both a physical and online presence at your event: your mini-poster and your interactive ePoster. You make both of these within Learning Toolbox.

People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers by scanning the QR code on your mini-poster or 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.

Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and even add to it after the event. You can send out messages to your ePoster viewers within the ePoster and your viewers can post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event.

Please note this video was made for conference ePoster authors but the practical process described is almost identical for NatWest ePoster authors. The only difference you will see in the interface from the demo is that you will not see the options to mark your ePoster as ready to print and publish.

We know that some people find it easier 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. If you prefer written guides or are short of time then this guide may be a more helpful place for you to start. Getting started – Create an LTB ePoster for a conference v1.1

 

 

If you are the author of an ePoster for the AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium (to be held on Saturday 24th August) then there are some extra instructions regarding your ePoster from the TEL Committee. Please find these instructions in the link below.


ePoster instructions for AMEE 2019 TEL Symposium authors

Category: ePosters
Currently Learning Toolbox does not support live collaborative editing of an ePoster by multiple authors. Instead each ePoster has one person who takes on the editing author role.
If you have been sent an invite link to create an ePoster for a conference, then the first person who follows that link will be given the editing role.

The person who takes on the editing author role will be able to add their co-authors’ names to the ePoster by adding their names in the Authors field in the mini-poster section (How I make my mini-poster). However, their co-authors will not be able to edit the ePoster.

The editing author can also share the link to the ePoster with their co-authors (How do I share an ePoster from my computer) so that their co-authors can view the developing ePoster and email them with any feedback or suggestions. If they do this then they should make sure they change the ePoster permissions from Private to Hidden and Anonymous Access (How do I set access permissions) before sending the link to their co-authors.

If your co-author has followed the invite link after you then they will get a message explaining that the link has already been used. If you would like to switch the editing role to them then just contact support and we will be able to do this for you.
