Joining a Webinar

Be Sociable, Share!

I don’t know about you, but I used to find joining a webinar to be a little bit intimidating. Although it has probably been a couple of years since the first time I tried to access a webinar on the Internet, I still remember how frustrated and stupid I felt. In fact, I could not for the life of me figure out how to hear properly and finally left in defeat. Then once I got used to watching and listening, I still couldn’t figure out how to talk when the lines were opened for comments.

As an FYI, it helps if you have a microphone and speakers plugged in to your computer. I know, it sounds silly that I wouldn’t know that, but I didn’t grow up with computers. In fact, I remember standing in front of a computer monitor shouting at it, thinking that way people could hear me. Okay, stop laughing.

Since my motto is “You’re never too old to learn”, fast forward to today and I am now conducting weekly webinars and really enjoying it. So I’ve created a quick, little video if you’re feeling as webinar challenged as I was. I hope it helps.

And please let me know how you make out.

Happy Computing,
Carol

  1. Which if computers where anywhere near as smart as most humans, The monitor should have undertstood you and replied if a response was needed.
    I realize that there was a guesst post at Clicknez.com about using speech recogination software to write posts. But either I havn’t trained my Dragon Naturally Speaking 11.5 enough or my speech( even though in everyday life I seem to be understood most of the time) is just plain weird. So based on the previous I would add Speech Recogination software to any list in which humans surpass Computers.

    Lastly I feel in many cases how to use something isn’t really explained,

      Hi Robert, I think computers are pretty dumb sometimes, but we get intimidated by them. And yes, lack of explanation is a big problem in many cases.

    Agreed with these quote “You’re never too old to learn”. I really like the spirit that you are still learning and it’s inspirational for me too . Thanks
