*Credentials were sent to all registered attendees on February 22nd. If you registered after 2/22, your credentials will be sent within 2 business days of your registration.

In-person attendees will be granted access to the online conference by March 15th.

If you registered as a group, the credentials provided have been configured to allow up to 10 users from any location simultaneously. This can be from campus, from home, from a laptop, desktop, or mobile device. Your group will only need the login and password listed above. All viewers can use the same login and password.


The  D4D Conference schedule has all online sessions tagged as Live or Recorded.

  • Live sessions will be available in real-time during the conference AND available with the recorded sessions after the session occurs.
  • Recorded sessions will be available within 24-48 hours on the same platform/same login & password.

Online attendees will have access to all peer-reviewed 45-minute session and 15-minute short talks as well as keynote sessions.

Search D4D Conference schedule and use the filter on the right labeled “Online Conference” to view the live & recorded sessions. Save your itinerary and share it with colleagues!


We have contracted to add captioning to the online conference platform. This is an experiment this year. The captioning will be added within 24 hours after the live broadcast. If you have any questions about captioning, please do not hesitate to let us know.


It is very important to test your device compatibility on Sonic Foundry’s testing page here.


Once again, every peer-reviewed session will be recorded for 2018. This is made possible from support from SAGE Publishing. At login, you will see a short video from SAGE before arriving at the catalog of session videos.



Don’t forget to join with us on Twitter and Facebook using #d4d18. We’ll post some fun stuff, session updates, features on events at D4D pictures of our preparations, Austin and online attendee lists and more on Facebook throughout the next couple weeks, too.

Still have questions?  Please let us know! We’re always experimenting and to your feedback. Your questions will help us improvement the experiences and we appreciate every one of them.
