Virtual platform

Connecting higher education

In recognition of the unique challenges posed by the global pandemic, this event will be facilitated by our brand new virtual events platform.

Designed to foster collaboration while delivering high-quality live content, our online environment is an immersive experience that replicates the atmosphere of a physical event and provides a vehicle for our higher education community to share knowledge and create new partnerships through this time of global separation.

Key benefits

  • Connect with delegates from around the world and arrange video meetings
  • Customise your profile and highlight the topics and collaboration opportunities that interest you
  • Ask experts the questions that are most important to the outlook for your higher education community
  • Access the on-demand content hub containing all session recordings, plus supporting materials

Why attend

  • Meet your peers and develop a global network of leaders, experts and decision-makers
  • Hear from thought leaders from across the globe, engage in debates, and share ideas
  • Help set the agenda for how the higher education sector may be transformed by this period of crisis

How it works

Before the event, registered participants will receive a link to customise their profile and access the online event. All you need is a computer with internet access, an up-to-date browser and a microphone. A camera for video transmission is optional.

For any technical queries throughout the event, support will be provided through a live help desk and access to the user knowledge base.
