The webinar will be presented using Zoom Meetings.   Recommendations for Using Zoom:

  • A few days before the webinar, install Zoom on your computer, laptop, tablet, or phone.
  • Our recommendation for the best option would be to use a computer or laptop. It’s easier to see things and read things. Or a large iPad/tablet with a good-sized screen. Phones are not recommended for a seminar.
  • Zoom is free for the attendees.
  • In the app store it is called Zoom Meetings.
  • Webcams are nice, but not necessary for the attendee to use. You can still see the speaker and the lectures even if you have no webcam at your end.
  • Good speakers or headphones ARE necessary to be able to hear the speaker.
  • You might try out a practice Zoom with other friends ahead of time to see how the system works.About the Lecture Materials:
