Access requiremets




Create an account for the portal by filling out your details here: Please use your school email as only emails matching the program's participant records will be able to make an account.

Once you have set up your account you can enter and familiarise yourself with the portal. Please go into your ‘school group room’ in the virtual lobby and test sharing your video and audio to ensure this works prior to the Program Launch on Monday 15 February. 



Navigate around the portal using the vertical menu bar on your left, or by clicking on your profile icon in the top right-hand corner. This will give you access to:

  • Event Lobby: view and enter all sessions here. Each presentation and workshop are accessible in the respective date tab.

  • Agenda: the agenda for the next upcoming event, including speaker biographies.

  • Partnership info: more information on upcoming events.

  • Event FAQ: so you can refer back to this page at any time. 

  • My Account: update your profile information here by clicking “edit” in the top right corner and “end” when you are done to save changes.



Head to the Virtual Lobby. Here you will see the different tabs for each event date, and the sessions for each day. There will be a red "live" button that will appear once a session is live so you can see what is currently happening. 

There are different room types:

  • Broadcasts: keynote presentations that you attend as a viewer only (like watching a video). Participants can send through questions and comments in the chat box. 

  • Breakout rooms: this will take you directly to a Zoom room so you can interact with other attendees via camera and chat.

To video chat:

  1. Click on the video camera button under the guest’s name you would like to speak to.

  2. Select whether you would like the call to be public or private.

    • A public room will appear in “group rooms” in the virtual lobby, and anyone will be able to join.

  3. Click “join” on the pop-up screen. As with the interactive sessions, you will need to select the correct microphone and camera.

  4. A notification will be sent to the guest you want to chat with; they can choose to accept or decline your invitation.

Group rooms: create a new group, name it and select whether it should be public or private. 

  • Public rooms: anyone can see and join your room. 

  • Private rooms: you will need to copy the url address and send it to those who you would like to join your room (via inbox, email or any other messaging service) as your room will be hidden from the event lobby.


Inbox: this will appear at the top of the screen no matter where you are in the event. Click on the inbox to see your messages, or “find people to chat” to start a new message chain. You will be able to send messages to guests who are offline; they will see the message once they log in.
