Is this your first virtual meeting? Are you tech-challenged? Don't worry - we're here to help!
ASRI 2021 is using PheedLoop as the platform to provide for the virtual event. All attendees are strongly urged to get themselves familiar with this environment prior to the beginning of the conference. We also encourage the attendees to set up their profiles as soon as possible and make sure they are exactly as they like them. The more familiar you are with the environment prior to the meeting, how it works and what it offers, the better your experience will be at the conference.
PheedLoop has prepared a detailed tutorial video for all attendees to view in preparation for the event. Here is the direct link to the tutorial video: https://pheedloop.com/more/virtual-attendee-training.
On this page, we've also gathered some helpful tutorials and information that will walk you through the features of the virtual platform. We recommend reviewing the system requirements and viewing the tutorial video below prior to logging in for the actual meeting.
Recommended System and Internet Requirements
A general rule of thumb is that any modern browser and high-speed internet connection is all that's really needed to participate. The best setup we've found is using Google Chrome on a laptop or desktop, with an internet connection offering at least 25 Mbps download speed. We've found Google Chrome is most compatible with third-party plugins and integrations.
Test your Internet Speed
Any major, modern browser is supported. This includes Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and even Microsoft Edge.
Note that Internet Explorer is NOT a supported browser due to it being incompatible with modern web performance and security standards.
The virtual event system is best experienced on a laptop or desktop device, though it is responsive and compatible with tablets and smartphones. Tablets and smartphones are best suited for view-only experiences, as the system relies on several technologies that are best compatible with full browsers (e.g. video chats within the system).
Built-In Multi-Language Support
The virtual event portal supports over 10 languages and allows you to instantly view nearly all built-in phrases, buttons, labels, notifications, and more in your language of choice. Once logged in, simply use the language selector at the top-right corner of your virtual event portal and select any language you prefer.
