Understanding how to use the SCC Education Week virtual platform
Step 1: Landing Page
Click on the green 'Login' button to gain access to the virtual platform.
Step 2: Credentials
To gain access, you'll be asked for your email address tied to your registration record. Please note: your email address is your unique login credential. Only one person per credential can be logged in to the virtual platform at a time.
Step 3: Exterior Lobby
When you've successfully logged in, you'll be redirected to the event's exterior lobby (which looks alot like the outside of a convention center). To enter the event, click on the building.
Step 4: Interior Lobby
The black bar, located at the very top of the page, has an email address to Tech Support (firstname.lastname@example.org). Any technical related issues, please use that email address.
The green bar of navigation tabs is how you'll move from room to room within the virtual platform.
The green doors are also available as navigation tools, but many of them will lead you off of the virtual platform, except the Auditorium doors.
Step 5: Auditorium
To begin watching the live presentations, you need to enter the Auditorium, by using either the green doors or the navigation tab labeled auditorium. Once inside, click on the middle screen to join.
Step 6: Live Presentations
The presentations are categorized by track and then by day & time. Depending on your registration type, you will see either two or three tabs. If you purchased the Full Education Week, you will tabs for the NextGen Track, Advanced Track and the Bonus Seminar & Networking Event. If you purchased a specific track, then you will only see that track and the Bonus Seminar & Networking Event.
When Live presentations are ready to start, a 'Join' button will appear. Clicking this button takes you directly into the Zoom Webinar. If a presentation is not ready to start, there will be a count down clock of when the presentation is set to begin.
When the presentation is over, in approx. 2 days, that 'Join' button will turn into a 'Watch' button - allowing you to watch the recorded presentation you missed.
For your convenience, PDF copies of presentation slides will be available for download beneath each course listing in the live presentations view.
Step 7: Trivia Contest
On the last day of the event, after the BONUS SEMINAR, you are invited to join us for a fun industry networking activity to close out the week. We'll have trivia contests, talk about the SCC's 75th anniversary, and provide attendees with a chance to meet and interact with each other in smaller video chat rooms.
To participate in the trivia game, you'll need to download the Kahoot! app on your mobile device. Downloading is simple and free:

- Search for Kahoot
- Click and download the app (its the one with the purple background and white K! in the icon)
