Submitting an eLearning Proposal

Interested in sharing your experiences, wisdom, and expertise?
Is there an eLearning topic that you feel would be beneficial to OATUG members?
We want to hear from you!


OATUG provides a diverse offering of resources to the Oracle applications and technology users. Case studies, project implementation stories, and feedback from you and your company's work can be a great help to others. OATUG eLearning sessions help to equip members with the answers they need to be more efficient and effective in their jobs.

We offer the following types of eLearning sessions:

  • Geo/SIG Sessions: Organized by Geo/SIG Coordinators on topics specific to their geographic region or shared interest area.
  • OATUG eLearning Sessions: Educational webinars on topics pertinent to OATUG members.

Preparing Your eLearning Proposal:

  • Choose topics that highlight a case study or an example of an implementation. You are welcome to share issues, highlights, victories, etc.
  • Continuing Professional Education: OATUG is certified by NASBA and can offer CPE credit for eLearning sessions. In order to provide CPE credit, your session must be at least 50 minutes in length. To learn more about our CPE accreditation, visit our CPE page.
  • Please note: Vendors, SIs, and other partners are welcome to present their customer experiences, as long as the content is education-focused. If a presentation is determined to be a “sales pitch,” presenters may not be allowed to present at future OATUG events.
  • Contact us to learn more about submitting a proposal for a webinar, scheduling questions, and other details.
  • When you have a topic and description ready, you can submit your proposal through the eLearning form.

Guidelines for Leading an OATUG eLearning Session

Once your presentation has been accepted and scheduled, you can follow these guidelines on promoting and presenting your session.

 Preparing for Your eLearning Session:

  • All presenters and co-presenters should complete their OATUG profile prior to the session and add their headshot. This profile will help attendees to learn about you and connect. (If you do not have a profile, you can create a free profile.)
  • Presenters are encouraged to post in the OATUG Hub before the presentation. You can do this a few weeks out to solicit questions or thoughts from our community, and again closer to the webinar. OATUG members that are part of the Hub get emails about activity there, so it's a great way to connect directly with those that would be interested.
  • Test your internet connection and audio settings. Please use a headset or phone for delivering your presentation to ensure a high-quality recording.
  • Make sure that all presenters/co-presenters have received the information for joining their session in advance of the scheduled date.

eLearning Session Format:

  • All presenters/panelists should log on 15 minutes before the session start time. An OATUG staff member will open the session, help to set up the presentation, and run a tech check.
  • You will be responsible for sharing your screen with your presentation slides. Please make sure that all background apps, programs that will have pop-ups or sounds, and distracting windows are closed.
  • An OATUG staff member will help to facilitate your session. At the start of the session, the staff member will welcome participants and provide brief instructions.
  • For one-hour sessions, plan for 45-50 minutes of content, with 10-15 minutes for Q&A.
  • The attendees will be muted throughout the presentation, but they can ask questions through the chat window.
  • After your presentation is finished, the OATUG staff member help facilitate the Q&A.

 Presentation Slide Decks:

  • All eLearning presenters are required to use the official OATUG eLearning PowerPoint template for OATUG eLearning presentations.
  • The first slide is to be used for your presentation title, your name, and your company.
  • You may include one slide for your presenter information and one slide for your company’s information and logo.
  • The remaining slides must only contain the eLearning agenda and content of your presentation.
  • You may not use your company’s logo on any slides other than your company information slide. If you do place your logo on additional slides, the presentation will be returned to you for correction.
  • You may include a slide with your “thank you” and contact information so that attendees can connect with you.
  • We recommend keeping the graphics on your slides simple and clear.
  • Save your final presentation slides file in PDF format and send to Speaker Programs or submit through our eLearning Form, prior to your eLearning presentation.

Tips for Engaging with Your Audience:

  • Collect Attendee Questions Before Your Session:
    • Presenters can utilize the OATUG Hub to network with OATUG members and solicit questions and comments on the session topic. This will help to increase attendance for your session and help you to prepare answers in advance.
  • Use the Chat/Question Box:
    • Get people engaged, right from the start. Asking simple questions, such as, “Where are you joining from?”, “Where do you work?”, or even, “How many cups of coffee have you had today?” can help set the tone for your session.
  •  Utilize Polling for Interactive Sessions:
    • Interested in feedback or a quick attendee snapshot? Use polls in your session for single or multiple-choice questions. (These need to be set up in advance. You can email Speaker Programs to submit your polls.)
  • Please reach out to us if you would like to talk through other ways to engage your audience virtually. We are happy to help support you in the design and presentation of your session.
