Thank you so much for participating in one of our Webinars! We always want our participants to have the best experience, so here are some helpful tips for setting up the webinar program and your learning space.
What is a Webinar: A Webinar is an web-based classroom where all participants are able to hear and see the instructor. Participants will be able to ask questions and engage with the facilitator via chat, polls, and Q&A’s.
Things you will need for Webinar participation:
Strong internet connection
A phone and/or computer that gives you the ability to connect to the Zoom Webinar platform
A quiet space, free of distractions.
Pen & Paper if you are a note taker.
How to connect to a Zoom Webinar
When you registered for one of our Webinars, you should have received a confirmation email, which would have contained the Zoom meeting link.
If this is your first time using Zoom, please allow 15-20 minutes before the start of the meeting to set up. This also gives you time to familiarize yourself with the program and get help from staff if needed.
Headset. Headset/headphones with a microphone cut down on background noise and echoing, they also make your voice come in clear
Strong connection. Choose a location with the best possible Internet connection—a slow connection on your end can erode the experience for everyone.
Sit Up Straight. We not only want you to be engaged, but also take care of yourself! Sometimes these can be long meetings, so take care of your body!
Take the meeting seriously. Overall, treat it like a meeting where you are all attending together in a physical space. This means putting yourself in an office setting (at work or home), even dressing up a bit so that it feels more formal (like a meeting). Shut down your other activities and be there—maintain presence of mind and attendance.
