Joining a Webinar
Click on the link provided to join the webinar. If you receive an error message copy and paste the link into your browser. If the password doesn’t work, type it in—copy and paste doesn’t work.
You will be asked to enter your name and email address. The WebEx application will open in a separate window and you will be able to see the presenter’s slides.
Connect to the audio. Once you sign into the web portion a box will pop up on your screen with the call-in phone number or the option to join using your computer speakers. Your phone line will be muted automatically as to eliminate any background noise.
A few days before the webinar we suggest you test the software to ensure you can connect.
Interacting During the Webinar
You will hear the webinar moderator periodically count down until the webinar begins.
There is a chat panel on the righthand side of the screen once you have logged in. You can enter your questions as you think of them or save them until the Q&A. You can also “raise your hand” by clicking on the grey hand button and the moderator will unmute your phone line and you can ask your question directly to the presenter.
There will be a customer satisfaction poll that will run at the end of the webinar so please add in your comments.
Recording and Playback
Almost all the webinars are recorded with a PDF of the slides linked under the playback window. The recordings are posted on the e-Library—you will receive an email with the link once it’s posted. You can share the recording within your organization.
You cannot copy and paste the webinar password as an extra space will be added to the end without being obvious which will result in an error. Please type out the password you were given.
You need to connect for the audio either over your computer speakers (VoIP) or by dialing in over the telephone.
If your organization’s firewall prevents accessing WebEx, you can dial in over the phone for the audio and follow along with the slides that are sent in the morning of the webinar.
We hope you enjoy your Conference Board of Canada webinar experience!
