On Sun Feb 14 Electronic Village Online, http://evosessions.pbworks.com, or EVO 2016, held its annual wrap-up online event live-streamed on http://webheadsinaction.org by Jeff Lebow, who helped host the event along with Teresa Almeida d’Eca, Vance Stevens, Nina Liakos, and Mbarek Akaddar. This event is where all involved in Electronic Village Online are invited to gather and talk about what they have learned and accomplished in the past 5 weeks.

Each session gets a 5 minute space in which to explain what they did and how they did it, and all EVOMC16 moderators and participants are invited to contribute to the conversation and to the subsequent recording. Moderators can set the timing of this conversation by reserving slots at a Google doc on behalf of their sessions, but participants are especially welcome to join the conversation and give their feedback on the session.
