How do I register for a webinar?
Check out our schedule of upcoming webinars and click the “register now” button to sign up for each webinar you would like to join. You will receive an email to confirm your registration.
How do I join a webinar?
We will send you an email with a direct link to join the webinar through Zoom. Usually, we send the link both the night before and 15 minutes before the webinar. Just click the link when it is time for the webinar to start. It will then prompt you to enter your email address to complete your registration. It’s that easy! If, for any reason, you do not receive an email with the link to the webinar, contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What if I don’t have a good internet connection?
The link to join the webinar is always followed by an option to join by telephone. Your own voice will be muted, so that you will be able to hear the webinar, but no one will hear you. While phoning in is a great option if you do not have internet available, keep in mind that you will not be able to view any PowerPoint the presenter is using and you will not be able to post questions to be answered live during the webinar. Also, if you call in on a land-line, there may be long-distance charges.
What if I have never used Zoom? Do I need any special software?
When you click the link to join the webinar, you will be asked to download the Zoom Client for Meetings. It should take less than a minute, and you’ll be automatically directed to the meeting. If you prefer to download this in advance, you can find it here.
Will I be on video? Do I need a camera or any special equipment?
No. Even though you will be able to see and hear the presenter during the webinar, participants are not on video and thus do not need a camera. Just be sure you have a solid internet connection, and turn on those speakers so you can hear!
Will I have a chance to ask the presenter a question?
Yes! Even though participants do not “speak” during a webinar, we encourage questions! Throughout the webinar, you will have an opportunity to type questions directly to the presenter. The webinar facilitator will make sure the presenter sees and responds to as many questions as possible. Ask away!
What if I miss a webinar?
While we strongly encourage you to join the webinar while it is live so that you can ask questions, we will also post videos of past webinars on our webpage. Just give us a few days after the webinar ends to get it online.
