We will send you the password within 24 hours of the event. You will receive the event link upon booking but please look out for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org containing the password.
To join the session via the Zoom video conferencing platform, you just need to click on the link we send you around 3 minutes before the session time. You can do this from a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop, but the best functionality and quality of connection is achieved with a laptop or desktop computer, I would advise only using a mobile as a last resort. Zoom is free to use but if you are using it on a mobile phone without connection to wireless internet your mobile service provider may charge you.
When you click on the link you will need to accept pop ups and insert your name and to choose audio by computer if given that choice. When entering your name please enter the name by which you would like us to call you during the session.
- When you join the session you will find yourself placed in a waiting room. Please don’t panic, we’ll let you in at the publicised event time.
- You will then find yourself on mute. Please remain muted until the host opens the Q&A session. This is to ensure the recording isn’t disrupted. Thank you!
- We record all sessions if suitable for sharing – so that as many people as possible can view the event afterwards. You can turn your camera off if you’d prefer to do so. We aim to crop any Q&A sessions out to retain anonymity and confidentiality – or, if appropriate to do so, upload the audio version of the Q&A only.
It’s very quick and easy to join the session and when you do, your camera image will automatically show to myself and the rest of the group and we will be able to hear what you say and any sounds around you when you are unmuted. You should see and hear us too.
You may communicate by using the chat function (direct to host) or by speaking when prompted by the host.
If you have any technical difficulties on the day, please text the Editor, Emma Waddingham, on 07769203856.
