ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN Taps Two OutStart Solutions to Enhance Experiences for Attendees
November 18, 2010 – Boston, MA – OutStart today announced that organizers of ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN, the largest global e-learning conference for the corporate, education and public service sectors, selected two OutStart technologies to enhance the conference experience. OutStart’s social business software, OutStart Participate, is powering the conference’s new online social network, ONLINE EDUCA Connect. In addition, OutStart Hot Lava Mobile is providing post-session and post-event evaluations to attendees through their mobile devices. ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN runs from December 1-3.
To improve networking opportunities for conference attendees, ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN tapped the social networking capabilities of OutStart Participate. Users of the online network can maximize their conference experience by connecting with peers before the show; participating in active conversations with peers, speakers and organizers during the show; and, following up with new and missed connections after the event. To accomplish this, ONLINE EDUCA utilizes a portion of OutStart’s broad capabilities that enable users to capture and share expert and user-generated ideas, experiences and insights.
To gather additional conference evaluations and feedback from attendees, conference organizers are utilizing mobile distribution of post-session and post-event evaluations using Hot Lava Mobile. Hot Lava Mobile is a software solution that enables users to develop and deploy mobile learning and priority communications to a variety of devices. The post-session and post-event evaluations are critical tools in evaluating speakers and topics, and planning future conferences. With Hot Lava Mobile, attendees are able to complete evaluations at their convenience on their mobile devices and organizers can view and analyze responses in real-time. This is just one of a multitude of applications for which Hot Lava Mobile can be used to support on-the-go workers.
