Plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow Wimba to run a short wizard on your computer.

If your computer has a microphone/speakers or a combo headset, you should be able to view the webinar without dialing in to the phone line.  Use the phone dial-in if you do not have this equipment.

When people log on to the Wimba room for the webinar, there is a telephone logo at the bottom of the screen -- touch it and it provides the phone and pin numbers needed to call in to be able to talk, as well as at the bottom of this message. Otherwise, people can type comments into a chat box.

We are also going to record the webinar for later viewing if your schedule doesn't allow you to attend on Friday.
