Questions About Webinars
Here are some questions we get regularly asked about how to register, attend, and participate in our adoption webinars.
Simply click on the question to see its answer.
What is a webinar?
There are three ways to attend a webinar:
Phone: Listen in from anywhere you have phone access. When you attend by phone alone you will only be able to listen. This works well for people who want to attend webinars during their commute, running errands, or where Internet or data access are limited. After you register, your confirmation email will have a phone number and unique code for you to dial in by phone at the time the webinar is scheduled to start.
Computer: When you attend a webinar using a computer you’ll be able to type questions with the webinar speakers and see any visuals or demonstrations they present along with the audio. *If your computer does not have speakers, you may attend our webinars online for the interactive and visual aspect AND by phone to hear the audio. Your confirmation email will have the link you need to click when it’s time for the webinar to begin. The GoToWebinar program will launch and set you up; you may need to approve your computer to allow this program to load.
NOTE: Due to Internet connections, some attendees may have a better experience using the combination of computer for visuals and phone for the audio.
GoToWebinar’s free app: To attend a webinar from a mobile device you can install the GoToWebinar app. You’ll still need to register for the webinar you plan to attend and use the link you receive in the confirmation email to launch the webinar into the app. You may also open the app and type the webinar ID number, also found in your confirmation email.
