What if I am late in getting on?
CFBMC webinars are scheduled to last one hour. You can log in any time during that hour. All it takes is to be a registered Agriwebinar user. Registration is always open, even when a webinar is on.
What if I miss the entire Webinar?
All live webinars will be recorded and posted in the Past Webinars but you must be registered to view recordings. Recorded webinars are usually posted to the Past Webinars section 3 weeks after the original air date.
What if I have a problem logging on?
Your browser pop-up blocker must be disabled to log on. The system will remind you to do this and also provide you with a link that will bypass your pop-up blocker.
If you enter the webinar but cannot hear anything or see anything, you may be on a computer network firewall that is preventing access. (Perform the firewall test to find out). If this is the case, you must log on using a computer that is not part of a network firewall.
What am I supposed to do when I log into the webinar?
Simply watch and listen (be sure to have your speakers or headset volume turned up). If you have dial-up or a lighter version of high speed, you can deactivate the video during live sessions by clicking on the box next to the "Receive video" text that is located at the bottom of the video area. This will uncheck the box and deactivate the video, which should improve your reception of the webinar.
At the bottom of the left side of the Agriwebinar screen, you will see the Questions box. You can use this feature to send your questions to the presenter by typing in your questions and clicking on “Send.” You can also use the Public Chat box to converse with other participants before the webinar starts.
What if I have to leave the webinar while it is on?
No problem. Simply close the window. You can log back in later. You can also choose to minimize Agriwebinar® so that you only hear the presentation.
Is there anything which could interfere with my access to the webinar?
Yes. If you have other programs open on your computer, such as an e-mail program, and are doing work on your computer during the webinar, you may notice that the webinar audio cuts out or the webinar slows down or freezes. We strongly recommend that you close all other software programs during the webinar.
