To participate in a webinar, you will need to create an account at zoom.us:
Once you have an account, you should be able to use the zoom code that you received to access the meeting room at the appointed time. You will not be able to join the meeting until the host permits participants entry at the appropriate time.
Once the host has permitted access to everyone to be part of the meeting, Zoom functions as a chat room and video conference interface. You should be able to see and hear the presenter, unless otherwise noted by the host.
Upon entry, you will be automatically muted and your web camera will not be accessed. The host will be the only one who can control whose microphone and web cameras are heard/seen. You will have the ability to chat in the side bar, if you want to interact.
You will direct your questions for the Q&A section of the lecture by privately messaging Eric Cook which can be done by clicking on his name in the sidebar of participants and selecting to send him a direct/private message. At the end of the presenter’s lecture, Eric will pick out questions for the presenter to address.
The entirety of the webinar, lecture and Q&A, should last approximately an hour. If you are able to, arrive a few minutes early to make sure you are able to access the meeting room. Once everyone is permitted entry, you should be able to immediately see/hear the presenter and maybe Eric cook.
If you have difficulty with anything related to the webinar, please email Kara Hyles for tech support: firstname.lastname@example.org.
