The APTA Virtual Annual Conference starts FRIDAY Morning at 8:00 am MT! The conference platform is now LIVE, so you can spend some time before the conference getting familiar with the platform and preparing for Friday’s and Saturday’s sessions.

Please take a moment to read through the following so you’ll understand exactly how to access sessions, activities, and more. You can also reference this attendee FAQ.
Before you start, watch this brief tutorial video of how to use the APTA Learning Center:

Step 1:
  • To access the Virtual Platform, click the orange ‘log in here’ button below, to log in to the APTA Learning Center. (Google Chrome is the recommended browser.)
     
  • Your log in information is the same as when you log in to the APTA Colorado website.
Step 2:

Sessions will be hosted in the Learning Center with live streaming through Crowdcast, an intuitive and interactive live meeting provider.

Once you’ve logged in to the Learning Center you can navigate to the first session by:
  • Clicking on the Keynote Session which will be the very first box on the page after you login
  • Once the Keynote address is over you can navigate to the top left corner and click on the APTA logo to get back to the rest of the conference
  • Once you select the track you would like to attend  you will be able to see all of the sessions included in that track hyperlinked at the top of the page
  • Next choose the correct session name from the Overview menu
  • In that session, you’ll see instructor and session information as well as a screen where you will be able to watch the sessions live.
 
Note: You’ll need to verify your email address to watch the live sessions. Simply click the “Save my spot!” (or “Let me in!”) green button and input your name and email address. You’ll need to do this the morning of each day.
