We’re still in awe of all of the great ideas and connections made at this year’s Online News Association Conference in Los Angeles. With over 2,100 attendees, it was our largest conference yet. Here, we’ve pulled together a myriad of resources to bring the sessions, attendees and conversations to you, from audio to video to ways to keep discussions going in the coming months.
Sessions: videos, social curation, audio, slides
- Full videos from the live-streams of ONA15 sessions are available. Each session has its own page, accessible through the ONA15 schedule, featuring embedded video, live blog and resources from presenters (when available).
- Bonus: Our video team produced 38 short takeaway videos.
- The ONA15 Social Team curated live coverage of conference sessions. Their updates are embedded on the session pages, which you can access via the ONA15 schedule.
- Slides and takeaways from presenters, when available, have been added to individual session pages.
- Audio recordings of sessions, when available, are located on individual session pages and on Soundcloud.
We were thrilled to introduce Table Talks this year, featuring over 100 ONA15 expert speakers who sat down with attendees to spark one-on-one conversations on major issues and big ideas. See the notes from Table Talks, separated by subject area and discussions.
Dozens of stories from the Student Newsroom
Check out the great coverage by the ONA15 Student Newsroom, sponsored by Google. Some of our favorite highlights include reporting on conference sessions, Humans of ONA15, an excellent video on the the importance of media diversity at the conference and some fresh looks at the journalism industry.
