GTR Resources

GTR is the virtual conference platform selected by NORDP.  Your presentations will be done in Zoom (using GTR licenses). The GTR system functions a bit differently than you may be used to so PLEASE view the Speaker Training Video for more information on how to handle the specific needs of your session. If you want to practice your presentation, please do so by downloading a free Zoom account at Zoom.us. The NORDP Zoom licenses will not be activated by GTR until 20 minutes prior to your session.

The guides below provide the technical guidance you need to plan your presentations, roundtables and recordings on each of the various platforms.
