During the online seminar, you will see a power point presentation or internet website. You will also be able to see the presenter and those participants who have a webcam (up to 10 persons).
Sound comes through Voice over IP, which is part of the program. You will have to check a small box on the right side of the program to authorize the audio transmission.
You can participate by telephone, but in this case their might be additional costs by your telephone provider.. We strongly recommend VoIP.
Up to ten persons can actively talk at the same time through VoIP or telephone, but make sure you have headphones then, because otherwise we would hear our echo through your loudspeakers.
Of course, you can be a “listener only”.
There will be a chat window coming with the program, where you can comment or ask questions during the online seminar.
Deactivate your webcam, if you do not wish to be seen.
You will get the invitation code with a special mail at 10.30 CET / 9.30 GMT, February 5.
