Thank you for coming along to Te ara pounamu. To ensure you can navigate your way around on the day, we have put together the following important links for use of the virtual hui platform Hopin.
Please take the time to read these instructions and if you require further assistance please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are using the Hopin (www.hopin.to) event platform for our virtual hui Te ara pounamu. Hopin is a virtual venue with multiple interactive areas to help you connect and engage. As an attendee, you’ll be able to move in and out of rooms just like an in-person event and enjoy the content and connections throughout. The Hopin platform includes a main stage area, breakout rooms (called Sessions), live video and text-based chat functions, as well as connection and networking functions.
Hopin is easy to use, and runs straight out of your web browser. While Hopin does work on mobile devices, for the best experience we strongly recommend that you use a laptop or desktop computer to take part in Te ara pounamu. Hopin works best on the latest version of Google Chrome, which you can download here.
When you enter Hopin you will be taken to the Reception. All sessions can be accessed throughout the day from this page.
Please watch this Hopin demo video for a general overview on how to use Hopin.
For more on how to get the most out of your Hopin experience, visit this page.
Look out for this Stage icon. The main stage is where the speakers will appear.
There is a chat function on the right hand side of the screen in Hopin. There will be different chats available depending on where you are. These include: event (available at all times, messages displayed to all attendees), stage (messages displayed only to those viewing the presentation) and there is also an option to private message someone.
We ask that you please use the Event chat for general introductions and discussion and the Stage chat specifically for questions to the presenters.
Look out for this Sessions icon. Speaker sessions are similar to Zoom breakout rooms. Please refer to Hopin’s sessions tutorial for more information.
Look out for this Networking icon. If you would like to network during the breaks, this is where you will come to connect.
Look out for this Expo icon. Copies of these instructions and details of how to contact our technical support team will be available by clicking on this icon.
