NISOD Virtual Conference held with BigBlueButton

Hosting

Each year the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) holds an annual user conference.

This year, six months after their user conference, they wanted to hold a NISOD virtual conference to enable more opportunities for collaboration and professional development amongst their members.

NISOD used BigBlueButton and Blindside Networks to host their first virtual conference for their community.

The National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) hosts an annual onsite conference. We wanted to provide our members with an additional professional education opportunity by hosting a virtual conference. With help from Blindside Networks, we successfully ran a fully online conference using BigBlueButton. We had over 80 users participate in 8 sessions. The feedback from participants was very positive and, with Blindside Networks’ support, we will offer the virtual conference again next year.
– Edward Leach, Executive Director, NISOD

After the conference concluded, Blindside Networks provided NISOD with recordings for each session. NISOD makes now these recordings available to all members for further development.

Blindside Networks is looking forward to helping NISOD hold another successful conference next year!  Contact us if your interested in hosting a virtual conference for your organization.
