We will be using Crowdcast. A Crowdcast quick reference guide is available here. Some tips on using Crowdcast are below from Chris Sumner.
- The webinar platform is browser based, so there is no need to install special software. Compatible browsers include Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. We have found that Chrome works best for video streaming.
- The webinar service is designed to have a small number of people talking (up to four) so don’t expect to see your face on screen or be able to chat with your colleagues. There is a text-based chat facility though.
- As the talk progresses you may have questions. You can ask them by clicking on the “Ask a Question” tab near the bottom of the window. You can also browse the questions asked and vote for them. This will help to prioritise them.
- It is possible to join the seminar before it starts.
- You can make the presentation full screen by clicking on the “broken-square” in the top right corner of the browser window.
If you have a question, send an email to email@example.com.
