Our Programme Goes Up Online – via Sched

Following on from the release of our programme yesterday we’re pleased to announce the launch of our online programme at http://8squared2013.sched.org/

We’re using Sched, which allows you to view the programme and details of individual items. From the ‘Schedule’ tab you can select a variety of view of the programme, including a simple list of items, a detailed list with descriptions and participants, or the ‘grid’ view familiar from our programme guide.

Sched also allows you to set up a personal account, which allows you to build your own personal timetable of items you want to see. It’s accessible from a computer, tablet or smartphone, and will be updated to reflect amendments to our programme.

If you’re on our programme, you’ll have already received an invitation to create an account; this will allow you, if you wish, to add details to your profile so that our members can find our more about you.

We’ll still be providing a printed programme guide and paper notification of programme changes. But we’re aware of the demand for an online programme, and we hope that what we’ve put together meets this need.

    The link takes me to FaceBook. Is this supposed to happen?

  2. I’ve never used Sched before, but I like it. Easy to set up a personal profile and link to my social networks. Took me a moment to work out how to build my own schedule (click the star on the item in the main programme, if anyone else is wondering). Looks like a good choice.

      I’m rather less impressed. The option to upload a photo instead of importing one from another network doesn’t appear to work, and it doesn’t seem to be capable of telling me which items I’m on, although it knows, when I find the items.
