Thank you for your part in hosting events and keeping our community alive and connected. Here are some best practices for hosting your virtual events and getting help from the university in connecting our audiences to your event. We will continue to use 25Live to list and market our virtual events.
How do I make a virtual event in 25Live?
How should I enter my event?
What qualifies as a virtual event?
How should I title my event?
The virtual location on your reservation will help notate that the event is virtual so you will not need to include that in your event title. If you would like to denote that the event is designed for a specific audience you should begin the title with your audience designation.
Zoom links and other virtual platforms should be entered in the Event Description field.
What should I put for the event location?
We have five virtual event locations to choose from. Zoom is our preferred platform as it has the best administrator controls for managing your event. The actual links to your Zoom meeting or profile for where to find the event should be entered at the top of the Event Description field.
In 25Live, a Location search for the keyword "virtual" will yield all five virtual location options.
What is the difference between the Event Name vs. Event Title?
In 25Live, the first two fields in the event form are the Event Name followed by the Event Title. For all of our campus calendars, the Event Title field is displayed as the name of your event (not the Event Name).
What should I include in the Event Description?
How do I get my event posted to the homepage/featured events calendar?
