Virtual Conference FAQs
How do I watch the sessions?

Click on All Sessions to see the full list of virtual sessions. Click on the session you’re interested in at the scheduled time and you’ll see the livestream.
How do I watch the sessions on demand after the original livestream date?
If you’re watching sessions after the original livestream time, you’ll navigate to them the same way. Find the session listing in the app, click on it to view the details page and then you will see the video to watch the session.
Is there chat function?
All sessions have a chat function during the livestream where you can network with other viewers, share resources, etc. However, there isn’t a chat function when watching the sessions on demand after the original livestream airing, and the chat that took place during the live viewing doesn’t save.
Are the sessions closed captioned?
All sessions have AI-generated captioning during the livestream that you can turn on or off. Within two days after the original livestream date, the sessions will have human-generated captioning.
How long do I have to watch the sessions?
Sessions are available for on-demand viewing through Oct. 18, 2023. Please note, the opening general session/Henry Winkler keynote address is ONLY available for live viewing. It will not be available on-demand afterward.
How do I access handouts?
Virtual conference attendees have access to session handouts for all virtual sessions. You'll find a link on the session detail page.
I downloaded the app, but it’s showing last year’s conference.
Click on the three lines in the upper right-hand corner and select ASCA 2023 under Active Conference. If ASCA 2023 isn’t showing up, then you likely logged in with a different email address than you used when registering. Logout of the app and log back in again with the email address you used to register.
Can I share the handouts, screenshots or other session material with my co-workers or others?
In a word, no.
