Engaging with ePosters on the showcase

We hope you enjoy exploring the rich ePosters on the showcase. Each author has carefully chosen and included material and resources to present and explain their work. In these ePosters you may find presentations, videos, weblinks, background documents and more. If the author has allowed it you can also post comments and questions to the ePoster.

This page contains some advice to help you get the most out of the ePoster showcase and the rich ePosters that the authors have created.

To open and explore the ePosters from the Showcase:

Click on the ePoster title (1) to open it

Open an ePoster from the Showcase

On the showcase you can search by typing in the search box (1) and clicking on one of the search buttons (2) to choose to search by All (searches description as well), Tags (as added by the author), Title or Lead Author.

If you are not signed in then your favourites will just include those ePosters you have favourited on the device you are using. If you have signed-in then your favourites will include all those ePosters that you have favourited (when signed-in with this account) on any device.

Going back to your favourites

Notifications of new chat activity are managed by the Learning Toolbox App. If you want to be updated about new chat activity on an ePoster then you should:

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

To share an ePoster, first open the More Menu (1) and choose Stack Info (2).

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

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

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

  • Open the Learning Toolbox App
  • You can now search for the ePoster by pressing the More Menu (1) and choosing Search (2).

Another way you can open the ePoster in the App is to find and scan the ePoster’s QR code.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  2. Choose Search
  3. Click on the Domains drop-down menu
  4. Choose the name of the Event you want to search
Searching a followed showcase in the App

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

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