Exploring a Virtual Conference Web Site for Undergraduate Health Education Students
Johnson, Maureen; Tremethick, Mary Jane
International Electronic Journal of Health Education, v12 p194-202 2009
Undergraduate health education students have been encouraged to attend professional conferences at the regional, state, and national levels. However, despite the benefits of attending these conferences, students may be reluctant to attend due to time and financial constraints among others. One solution for overcoming these barriers is the creation of a virtual conference Web site for health education students. The purpose of this paper is to compare the benefits and barriers of face-to-face and virtual conferences, to describe several elements required for the successful development and operation of a virtual conference, and to propose recommendations for evaluating the effectiveness of a virtual conference Web site for undergraduate health education students.
