Finding Events and Building Your Schedule

To add items to your personal schedule simply star them. You can view what you have stared at any time by selecting “My Favorites” in the right-hand drop-down below your name.

There are several ways to browse through the schedule to find sessions and events. Here are a few:

  • Browse by Day – You can only be one place at a time so browsing the schedule by day and time is an easy way to avoid over-committing yourself.
  • Browse by Track – Tracks are broad topics used to organize the program and help illuminate overarching focus areas such as equity, arts, or student agency. There are 17 total tracks for SXSW EDU 2020.
  • Browse by Format – The format reflects the structure, presentation style, and length of the session. For example, a Future20 is a 20 minute presentation with a single speaker while a workshop is a 90 minute, in-depth session with up to three speakers.
  • Browse by TagTags are specific subtopics designed to help attendees find popular content areas on the program. Each session on the schedule has one to two tags associated with it such as libraries, school safety, or artifical intelligence.

Please note that date, time, and venue information will not be made available until closer to the event.

Share Your Schedule

The schedule has a built-in feature that allows you to share your personal agenda. You can turn this feature off if you prefer that your schedule remains private by unchecking the “Share my Schedule” box in your “My Favorites” section. When enabled, you will be provided a unique link that can be sent to your boss or colleagues, and shared with friends and followers on social media.
