OVERVIEW OF MONTANA VIRTUAL EVENTS PLATFORM
StriveScan’s 6×6 Virtual College Fair™ format consists of six colleges each presenting for six minutes. It is designed to closely replicate an in-person college fair browsing experience. Representatives will be assigned by the Fair Coordinator to a session of six colleges to each present during a webinar session. The session will last a total of 45 minutes. Students can interact with reps from all six colleges throughout the 45-minute session via the Q&A chat.
Example Session Introduction (1 minute) College 1 (6 minutes) College 2 (6 minutes) College 3 (6 minutes) College 4 (6 minutes) College 5 (6 minutes) College 6 (6 minutes) Final Q&A (3-5 minutes)
Student (and Counselor) Registration | Students are encouraged to register for multiple sessions. Once students register, they will receive an email with a link to join the session. Reminders will be sent one day and one hour before. High school counselors, IECs, and other professionals will also be able to register and attend, too.
Technology | Sessions are hosted via Zoom Webinars (not Zoom Meetings) and are provided by StriveScan. Representatives’ cameras should be on during their portion of the presentation. (Turn off your video and mute yourself until your section.) Students will be muted and cameras off to avoid disruptions. Students can interact with representatives from all six colleges throughout the 45-minute session via the Q&A chat. StriveScan has custom configured its Zoom accounts to help prevent “Zoombombing” and to provide a safe and secure experience.
Presentation | Each college will have six minutes to present. We encourage you to highlight distinctions about your institution and use slides to provide visuals and campus photos. Each representative will be able to share their own screen and slides when it’s their time.
Q&A | Students will be able to use the Q&A tool to type questions to the representatives throughout the session. Students may direct questions to a specific institution or ask general questions to the group. Once one representative has responded, the question will move from the “Open” tab to “Answered,” but may still be answered by any representative.
