How to use this site

The conference site is open for anyone to view. For the more interactive features like building your own schedule and follow/comment on sessions or engage with other participants you need to register/login to this site. If you are registered to attend OER16 you can use the username created at the event registration. If you can’t remember this you can try a password reset with your email address to get your username and password. If you are an ALT Member you can login with your ALT username and password. If you are not an ALT Member you can still register for an account here (this just registers you for this site. Here is more information on Join as an ALT Member).
