ONLINE CONFERENCES - TYPES OF PRESENTATION
An online conference presentation can feature:
Some presenters may choose to include several of the above list, but they do not have to be that comprehensive. Keep in mind that you do not have to be responsible for uploading the content to the conference website. You simply create the files, for example Word documents, and send them to the conference organisers. Here are a few examples of typical online conference presentations:
Type 1 – the Basic Presentation
Type 2 - the Basic Presentation + Live Synchronous Chat
Type 3 – the Website Tour
There are of course many other types of presentation. You may decide to host an email game, have delegates trial a piece of software, trial online games such as at http://www.designplanet.com.au/New_Practices_069SA/aqtftrialsite.htm, complete an online survey, join an online course for a few days, work on a collaborative document, interact with a guest speaker – the possibilities are endless!

Here are a selection of presentations that may give you some ideas:
Discussion? Workshop? Showcase? = EVENTS
If you continue browsing the presentations here you may find others that suggest other ways of doing your presentation. Note: presentations on the NW2002 site are classified as either discussions, workshops, or showcases. For the 2004 conference all presentations, regardless of format, will be called EVENTS.
It should be clear that online conferences offer a lot of scope for variety. The style and delivery method of your presentation is limited only by your imagination and available time.
