Dear ForestConnect Webinar Participants:
You have registered for the webinar series, and the email below provides information and the link for you to obtain your unique “registration id” for this month’s webinar. Note that webinars are live at noon and 7PM, for an hour each, but the meeting space is reserved from noon until 8PM.
Topic: Expanding Silvopasture in the Northeast
Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Event password: forestconnect
Event address for attendees: https://cornell.webex.com/cornell/onstage/g.php?d=646099867&t=a
NEW * Cornell’s Webex Software requires that we use a password. See the “event password” above. I don’t know at what point in the registration or site access you will be prompted, but expect to use the password at some point.
- Read all these instructions.
- You need a personal registration ID to join this month’s webinar. There is unlimited space for participants, the ID simply provides you the necessary access code. Obtain your registration ID via https://cornell.webex.com/cornell/onstage/g.php?d=646099867&t=a
- On the webpage where the above link takes you, look for the option to “register” to receive your “registration id” number. Note this page also includes the option to download resources related to this webinar (if available).
- Wait for the email that contains your personal “registration id” number (a couple minutes at most usually)..
- Join the webinar via the “click here” button (given to you in the registration email) to open into your default web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Firefox). The “click here” button should open into the webinar, or display a page indicating the webinar is not active. If the webinar is not active, that means the host isn’t connected and you will need to wait until the host connects. If the page opens into a rather generic “Cisco WebEx” page then your browser may not be compatible with WebEx and you should copy and paste the full link (see example below, it follows “click here”) into an alternate web browser. Using an alternate web browser usually solves most connection problems.
- Test the sound capacity of your computer by accessing a website with sound (e.g., video clip on a news website, Youtube, etc.).
- As you enter the webinar, you may be asked to test your media player. If so, you will need to complete that step.
- As you enter the webinar, you will be given the option to download software; you can bypass that step and enter the webinar directly. I’m not aware of any problems that have arisen from downloading the software (which streamlines subsequent access, but you should make this decision for yourself.
