Which one should you choose?  

Our recommendation is to use both! Both options allow you to create and manage your session agenda, but the app has extra social features that make it easy to interact with other attendees. While watching sessions on your computer, you can use your mobile phone to browse the community board, pose questions to the session facilitators, and other engagement opportunities! 


  • While all sessions will be hosted virtually, there will still be session maximums. Please add sessions you want to attend to your agenda early. If you can no longer attend a session, please remove it from your agenda so others may have the opportunity to join.   
  • Whova does not utilize the Tulane Single Sign-On function, so your Whova password may be different from your Tulane password. 
  • Managing your agenda through the platform is easy! Simply add or remove sessions from your personal in-app agenda with the click of a button. 
  • This platform does not integrate with your Outlook calendar, so if you would like to add the sessions you register for to your calendar, you must do so manually.  
  • All sessions will be recorded for you to view later! 

Additional guidance on how to utilize this platform can be found at https://whova.com/pages/whova-app-user-guide/
