Whats A Webinar?
I do my classes and most of my readings and coaching sessions via web conference. It’s my virtual office.
That just means that when you book in for a class, reading or session I email you a link for the place on the web where we will meet.
Click on the link about 5 minutes before we are due to begin.
You’ll be asked to download a small computer file, which should take about a minute on most internet connections. If it takes longer, don’t worry, I’ll be there when you do arrive.
It’s similar to Skype. You’ll be able to see me and my computer screen when you arrive. For audio – speaking and listening – you can use a headset with a microphone, or choose to call by telephone the phone number I will send you in the email with the webinar link. If you’ve got a web camera on your computer, you can choose to switch it on or leave it off.
This is the bit that seems to create most problems for people:
When you arrive you’ll be prompted to click on the Audio tab (shown in yellow below) and choose Telephone or Mic & Speakers.
If you have any problems, just write a note in the Chat section and I’ll respond, or send me an email. That’s pretty much it really! Here’s the system requirements for using the webinar software.
Required: Windows® 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server
Required: Mac OS® X 10.5 or newer
Doing classes, readings and sessions by webinar in my virtual office means that I can create both a video and audio (mp3) recording for you.
