On Camera? We encourage it, but participants do not need to appear on camera. They should use a selfie or avatar to represent themselves. However, panelists should NOT use a picture of BTS. As delightful as a Jin cult panel would be – we’d like you to represent yourself visually. There are many free avatar makers on the internet, we suggested several on the Discord Guide channel on the server.
Where? Most panels will be held in Google Meet or Zoom, but to attend you will actually watch the panel streamed to Our Magic Shop’s Twitch channel. You do not need to have a Twitch account to view, but you do need an account if you want to participate in the chat. These accounts are free.
What? Each presentation will have an accompanying group Google doc for resources & collaborative notes.
Live Q&A Some panels will have a live Q&A following their presentation, either through the chat or by inviting people into the meeting. Each event will vary and you should look at the schedule listing to find out more information and the correct link.
Chat Q&A As presenters are willing, some events may spill over into the Discord for further Q&A using the Main Stage channel which will open when live events start.
Recording Panels will be recorded and you will be notified before recording starts.
