Three Great Ways to Get Oracle OpenWorld Content

oow.jpgThe conference may be over, but the learning opportunities are not. Here are three excellent ways to review your favorite keynotes and sessions—or see them for the first time. There's an offer for every budget, including free PDFs for Full Conference attendees.

Oracle OpenWorld 2008 On Demand Offering

Available here for US$400 to Oracle OpenWorld Full Conference attendees. Available here for US$700 to anyone who was not a Full Conference attendee or who did not attend the event.

• Find all keynotes and breakout sessions (more than 1,700 presentations) in an online streaming rich media portal.
• Search all breakouts in one central repository.
• Search keynotes by attributes including the spoken word. Keynotes are available with synchronized video, slides, scrolling transcripts, and downloadable MP3s and MP4s.
• Comment on and rate presentations online, and post your own user-generated content.
• Blog, participate in communities, and network with your peers.

Oracle OpenWorld 2008 DVD Kit

All attendees may purchase the complete presentations and keynotes for US$200. The DVD kit is available here.

• A complete set of conference presentations and keynotes (PDF only).
• DVDs will be mailed to your mailing address three to four weeks after the conference.
• Available only while supplies last.

Full Conference Attendees—Access to Presentations Through Content Catalog

All Oracle OpenWorld 2008 Full Conference attendees, including customer speakers, have free access to the following:

• Presentations in PDF format. (Audio is not available with this option.)

Access to the presentations is available through the Content Catalog on the Oracle OpenWorld 2008 Web site. Please note:

• You must have your registration ID or username and password.
• When downloading presentations, you will be prompted to enter a username and password. This username and password are listed on the Content Catalog page in red.


Are all the presentations going to be available. Many of the sessions I attended are missing.

Am I to understand that the DVD kit will only be sold to conference attendees this year?

Anonymous, All session content is supposed to be available. I've requested information from the events team on whether any content is still missing, and if so, when it will be available. I'll reply again when I learn more. Thanks for your question!

Hi Another Anonymous, Unfortunately the DVD kits are produced in limited numbers and are available only to attendees. On Demand is available to anyone, and though it is a more expensive option, it also offers a lot more to the user. Thanks for your question!

I've gone into Content Catalog, entered the provided user name and password, but nothing opens or it downloaded. How do I get the pdf document to open or download ?

Anonymous, I've heard back from the Events team and they confirmed that the content from the entire week is available on OpenWorld On Demand. The only exceptions are a few sessions for which the speaker didn't approve recording. Thanks again for your question.

Hi Amy, I've tested the download instructions and didn't experience any problems. Have you tried using Internet Explorer as your browser when downloading? If not, please give that a shot. If that's not the fix, could you please tell me which PDFs you're trying to open, so I can test those specifically.

Jack - I am using Internet Explorer. I click on the session i want, enter the userid and password, and wait...but nothing opens. I have tried several sessions, but have had no luck. Session Id's are S298177, S299113, S299124...and others. Let me know how I can open thses. Thanks for your help

Hi Amy - I tested the Content Catalog and was able to access the session PDFs for the three sessions you listed. I'll list the steps I followed, so you can double-check. If there's still a problem, you'll need to contact • Go to: • Enter your Oracle OpenWorld Registration ID, or your Username and Password • Enter the Session ID in the Session ID field • Click Start Search • Write down the Content Catalog Username and Password that appear in red beneath the Search buttons (these are different from the Username and Password you used to log in) • Click the paperclip under the Presentation column • Enter the red Username and Password • PDF should open I hope this helps.

Hi, any idea if this DVD kit is also available for Oracle employees? if so, where can employees order this dvd from? Thank you!

Posted by Moe on October 29, 2008 at 04:36 PM PDT #

Hi Moe, There was a limited run of DVDs, so there are no special deals for Oracle employees. If there are any DVDs left, you'd have to make your purchase through the Oracle OpenWorld registration page.
