This weekend there is a convention which will stream some of the
classes (and recording them for later viewing online as well).
I think the boxes workshop will be particularly interesting.

Hello Folding friends,
We are very very excited to announce that the online streaming sessions
schedule from Origami Heaven are posted on the website.
Ideally we would prefer to have you with us in person, but these streaming
sessions will add a totally new dimension to this event.
The link for the streaming sessions is on our website or you could go to
Invite some friends and have a party and join origami heaven together.
Imagine a whole network of mini classrooms connected. It is going to be so
It is still not too late to register for Origami Heaven. We are also very
excited to have a nice warm up before the folding mania this weekend as the
Origami lecture series also starts today with talks from Erik and Martin
Demaine at the Simons center at Stony brook University. If you are in the
Long Island area, please consider coming and joining the fun!

Please visit https://meeting.sinc.stonybrook.edu/origamiheaven
to join us
from your home.
You can sign in as guest, no password is needed, but your location will be
appreciated. Feel free to chat using the chat window. Microphone access
will not be available to avoid the class from being disrupted. A moderator
will try to answer your questions. Please be patient as this is a new thing
we are trying to figure out. We are very excited that you will be with us
at Origami Heaven.
*Schedule of streamed events:-*

*What will the format of the class be?*
We are streaming a regular class with live teacher and students in the
classroom. The teacher will be talking. Every class will have a moderator
who will be sitting near the camera and keeping an eye on the chat window
when you can ask questions by typing. The moderator will also be folding
the model for the camera so the online students can watch the closeup of
the folds. If you miss a step or can't follow for some reason, please don't
be discouraged. We will record these lessons and post it on the website
soon so you can rewind/forward the lesson as many times as you want to
catch up. Since this is so new, we will try our best to accommodate
everyone but everyone must realize that a teachers priority will be the
students who are in the live classroom to not dilute their experience.
You can build on your own experience by inviting some origami friends to
your home and joining the fun. They might also help you with a fold or step
that you might have missed. It makes it all the more fun. Imagine little
classrooms all around the world with a teacher at Origami Heaven!
Thanks again and see you all at Origami Heaven.
