A: It depends! There are three types of virtual sessions, each noted with a tag on the Pathable schedule.
Live Webinar: Keynotes, Super Sessions, and classroom sessions are hosted in Zoom webinar rooms. Only speakers can be on video and unmute themselves. Participants are in listen or view-only mode.
Hands-On Learning Sessions or Live Networking: Hosted in Zoom meeting rooms (what many of us use in our day-to-day lives). Anyone—speakers or participants—can be on video and unmute themselves if they choose. At 340B, we mostly use this setup for networking sessions such as coffee and after-chats.
Live Chat: Our byte-sized sessions feature prerecorded video, and the speakers are available live to answer questions via the chat box in Pathable. There will be no video or audio Q&A.
A Note: If your organization or device limits Zoom access, you may not be able to unmute or go on video, but you should still be able to view the content and use the chat room.
