A webinar is a web-based seminar or workshop that you can access from your computer or mobile device.
To participate in a webinar, you will need:
- A Windows or Mac computer
- A microphone and speakers (built-in or USB headset)
- An Internet connection (broadband is best)
- A webcam (this is optional).
Most computers have built-in microphones and speakers, but you will get better audio quality if you use a headset or handset. There is a toll-free option if you are dialing in on a telephone.
It’s usually better to use a wired rather than a wireless connection. Wireless and mobile connections sometimes have delays which can cause loss of sound and picture quality.
Before the webinar
Once you have booked, you will receive an email with a link to join the webinar. There will be an option to test your connection. You can also do a test now
Please leave enough time to read all the instructions and check your equipment and connection before the session starts. Make sure your firewall settings will allow you to join the session. It is harder to solve individual technical problems once a webinar is in progress.
During the webinar
Most sessions last 60 minutes. This includes time for questions and interaction. Use the 'raise hand' option to ask a question over your microphone. You can also use the chat box to post questions and comments for presenters or other attendees.
