Foolish Thoughts #10: So you are scheduled run a webinar?

So, you are to give your first webinar in a few days.  Nervous?  Of course you are! 


Whether you are new to conducting learning via webinar or a seasoned pro, there are a number of things that you can do to better prepare yourself and to ensure that all goes well. 


Here are just some of the common sense things that I do, before giving a webinar.  Of course, there are many more things that you can do, but doing these will help make for a smoother and better presentation.


+ Remind participants to test their internet and video speeds, if this is their first time, a couple of days in advance.  The first time can also include, if they are participating from a new location, not necessarily the first time they have participated in a webinar.  This will give them the time to get things worked out. + Send participants specific instructions on how to access the session, when to log in, who to contact for help, and other important reminders.

+ Test all of the links to videos, websites, etc. before the day of the session, and again, the same day, to ensure that all is working well.

+ Do a dry run using the webinar tool.  Use a second computer to observe what the participants will see on the day of the webinar.  + When conducting your dry run, test the timing of each section.Working with a facilitator/moderator?  Then you need to plan, practice and prepare for the webinar.
