1 Welcome to UKSG webinars We strive to make your participation in UKSG webinars as enjoyable and trouble-free as possible. You may therefore like to read the information below to help you prepare. General recommendations: A headset if you wish to join the webinar using your computer and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) Close all applications not in use A wired internet connection (wireless can affect VoIP) plugged in via a LAN cable Keep mobiles etc. away from your computer System requirements: Internet connection (preferably broadband) Windows® 8, 7, Vista, 2003 Server or XP Mac OS® X 10.6 (Snow Leopard®) or newer Internet Explorer® 7.0 or newer Mozilla® Firefox® 4.0 or newer Safari™ 3.0 or newer Google Chrome™ JavaScript™ We cannot anticipate all browsers and firewalls, some of which may prevent access to the webinars. Please speak to your IT department if you think an institutional firewall may prevent your participation. Optimal Firewall Configuration Factsheet available: c.pdf Mobile devices: Both Android and iOS mobile devices can be used to join a webinar. First download the free Citrix GoToMeeting app (which facilitates GoToWebinar) from your usual app store.

4 About the webinars Audio problems: If you hear an echo and are listening through your computer (VoIP), try reducing the volume of your speakers. If you encounter further difficulties and are using VoIP, please mute your computer and join the audio conference by telephone by clicking ‘Telephone’ in the ‘Audio’ pane of the control panel and following the instructions. If you join using a telephone, you may encounter feedback. Please mute your computer and continue listening by telephone. Please also ensure that you select ‘Telephone’ in the ‘Audio’ pane and enter the audio pin. Other problems: Please raise any other issues with the organiser (Maria Campbell) in the ‘Questions’ pane. Attendees are muted throughout a webinar unless invited to ask a question verbally. We usually take written questions via the ‘Questions’ pane. These are read out by the organiser and usually displayed in the Questions pane for all to see. To ask a question verbally, use the ‘Raise Hand’ button on the bottom left of the Control Panel. The organiser will then unmute you. We endeavour to respond to questions as quickly as possible. Questions may be answered by after a webinar. A feedback survey displays at the end of the webinars – please complete it.
