On the day of the webinar
You will need a quiet space, preferably in a private office. If you cannot be in a private office, we recommend that you indicate to colleagues that you cannot be disturbed and try and keep any background noise to an absolute minimum.
You will need:
- A computer (PC or Apple Mac) with a suitable internet connection (please note: If you plan to access this webinar from a tablet or mobile device, several of the functions may not work.
- A set of headphones or speakers
- You may want to use a microphone and webcam for asking questions. If you do, make sure you have a suitable microphone attached to your computer and that you use headphones to prevent the sound distorting
In theory, any internet connection can access Adobe Connect *. However, please note the following:
- If you have the option between a wired (Ethernet) or WiFi connection, we recommend using a wired connection
- If you are using WiFi, please ensure that you have a reasonable signal strength
- If you are working in an office with a shared broadband connection, or working from home or unsure of the broadband speed, please ensure that you have a broadband speed of at least 2MB. This will not normally be a problem, however may be the case if you live in remote or rural locations. Your internet provider can advise you on this if you are unsure.
