AccessU Readiness Checklist for Instructors

Here is quick checklist to be sure you are prepared for your class at AccessU whether in person at St. Edward's University or remote.


Register for John Slatin AccessU 2023. No charge for your ticket of course but you must be registered – in person or remote. You will not be able to participate without a valid registration. Choose the "Instructor" ticket for the discount to work correctly. Do not share your registration link; it was sent via email and it contains a single-user unique discount code for you only.

Your Class Listing

Check your class listing on the AccessU Full Schedule page - description, presenter(s) bio, date and time, whether virtual or onsite, etc. and let us know if anything is shown incorrectly.

Access Zoom Events

Zoom Events is the conference platform.  ALL instructors - on site or remote - will use it to teach their classes. Remember that half of our attendees are connecting from remote locations.  

Onsite instructors will present from their personal laptops and be supported by tech support in the room.

Remote instructors are strongly urged to check in with the tech producers during:

Drop-in virtual tech checks: pland will hold tech checks on May 2nd from 12:00 - 2:00 PM and May 3rd from 3:00 - 5:00 PM (Central Time).

Presenters will receive an email from Zoom Events saying you have been registered for an event, along with an Agree and Join button. This is your ticket to the online platform where both the tech check and event will be held. For the drop-in sessions, please click the link, enter your zoom login information, enter the same email we have on file, and proceed to join the Live session called "Tech Check Drop-In."
