Frequently Asked Questions

Can I invite colleagues to watch with me?

Yes. To make the most of the webinars, we recommend gathering colleagues to watch with you in an office or conference room. Schedule a group discussion immediately after the webinar; we will provide discussion questions.

What are the webinar system requirements?

We use GoToMeeting’s GoToWebinar system. To participate, you will need:

  • High speed internet access: Cable modem, DSL or better recommended.
  • Long-distance toll phone to listen via teleconference or computer audio speakers to listen to streaming audio. (NOTE: Telephone provides better quality audio for most participants.)
  • PC-based attendees
    Required: Windows® 7 or newer, Vista, XP or 2003 Server
  • Macintosh®-based attendees
    Required: Mac OS® X 10.4.11 (Tiger®) or newer

Can I test the webinar system before the series begins?

If you have not used GoToWebinar before, we highly recommend running a system test to ensure you can log in, view the presentation and listen to audio. Call GoToWebinar support at 800 263 6317 or +1 805 617 7000 to request a quick test.

If you encounter technical difficulties that prevent you from joining the webinars, check the pre-webinar reminder emails for a link to download the PowerPoint presentation and manually view the slides, while calling into the teleconference.

We cannot guarantee the webinar will work with your system.
If you require technical assistance joining a webinar, please call GoToWebinar support at 800 263 6317 or +1 805 617 7000.

Is there a toll-free phone number for the conference call?

To keep the cost of our free webinar programs low, we will not be providing a toll-free conference call number.

Instead, you may elect to listen via streaming audio from your computer speakers to avoid long-distance call costs. We recommend a webinar system test to test your speakers and determine which audio mode works best for you.

Can I attend webinars from outside the United States?

Yes. To join the conference call, local toll numbers are provided for the following countries: United States, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

Will the webinars be recorded?

Webinars will be recorded and posted in our Study Hall.

Can I get a copy of the PowerPoint presentation used in the webinar?

Yes. You must sign in and pre-register in the GoToWebinar system prior to the live webinar event in order to receive the PowerPoint presentation. After pre-registering, you will receive reminder emails that include a link to download the PowerPoint presentation.

How can I ask questions during a webinar?

Our webinars are popular and attract dozens of attendees. To provide the highest quality audio, you will join in “listen-only” mode and your line will be muted. Only the webinar facilitator can un-mute your line.

We encourage you to submit questions to the speakers using our live chat functions:

  • After signing in to GoToWebinar for the live webinar, locate the Questions tab
  • Type your question into the Questions tab to submit a question to the facilitator
