How webinars work: Please visit the webpage established for each webinar to register, check on any update announcements, the agenda and any handout materials. We will also notify you by e-mail of any updates.
There are three actions to take to ensure you have a satisfactory webinar experience.
1. Update your browser - You will need an internet browser and are encouraged to use the most current version. Most computers come pre-loaded with an internet browser, but you should confirm that you have one and update it to the latest version.
2. Test your connection speed - You should run the meeting connection diagnostic (click here) on the computer and browser you intend to use for the webinar to check that:
- The most current version of Flash Player is supported
- Your connection with the Adobe Connect Server
- Bandwidth availability
If your version of Flash is out of date, you will be directed to the update page at Adobe.com. Flash is installed to individual browsers - it is not a stand alone program.
3. Confirm access and internet function. Once you are sent the webinar URL address, attempt to connect to see if the system works (you'll be sent the URL about a week in advance of the session if you have registered).
