How to use the videos pool?

Because the Celtic Knot Conference is remote and international, we wanted to make sure that most of the content would be accessible at any time by the participants. That's why we asked most speakers to record their session in advance, and it will be available at any time as Youtube videos. The abstract, slides, and more information are available on the wikipage of the session, linked below.

Because watching the content will happen asynchronously, discussions and questions to the speakers will take place asynchronously as well. Each session is connected to a pad, a page where people can collaboratively add notes, comments and questions. The speakers will be able to answer these questions during and after the conference.

Don't want to watch a video on your own? Feel free to watch it together with other participants! You can use the Telegram group to ask if other participants would like to watch a session with you, or set up a watch party on existing tools (see the "watch together" section below).

Watch together[edit]

There is no defined time to watch the videos of the Celtic Knot Conference 2020. They will be uploaded on Youtube a few days before the event, and will stay available after that. The videos will be released under CC-BY-SA and can also be uploaded on other platforms.

In the conference main program, we suggested a few slots called "watch along" to take some time and watch the sessions that you're interested in - but overall, we wanted the participants to enjoy the sessions at their own pace.

This doesn't mean that you have to watch the videos alone! Here are several ways to schedule a "watch party" with other participants:

  • Decide on a time to start and watch the video synchronously, interacting with other viewers on the related pad
  • Set up a video call where viewers can watch and comment the video together (for example, on Jitsi)
  • Use other tools having a "watch party" feature (for example, there's a Chrome extension)

In any case, to find other viewers, feel free to ask around on the conference Telegram group: you can write something like "Hey, I'm about to watch session X, who would like to join?"
