Virtual Events

In light of the recent global isolation initiatives due to the COVID-19 virus, and the suspension of most contact teaching and learning activities at the University of Johannesburg,  the Library now offers an online environment for both events and conferencing.

We continue to provide a stimulating environment for debate and engagement with topical issues to students, staff and external stakeholders in a Virtual platform using Zoom.

Advantages of Online Conferencing
  • Saving travel emissions
  • Saving energy and waste (fuel, electricity, materials, food)
  • Saving individual energy (no booking, no travelling, no changes of time zones)
  • Saving time
  • Reduction of costs for organizers (no rooms, no catering, no travels, less staff required)
  • Reduction of costs for participants (no travelling, no hotel, no fee)
  • Flexibility to attend single sessions or the whole conference
  • Possibility of combining with daily routines of work and social life
  • Inclusive (people from all around the world can participate regardless of their origin, physical condition, family situation, financial and political situation, etc.)
  • Easy recording of sessions
  • Easy to enrich the program with additional tools (pre-recorded videos, surveys, etc.)
