Terms and Conditions

  1. The participants will be “muted” for voice hearing during the presentations but will be able to provide questions via the “chat” mechanism on the online meeting software.
  2. Public participants’ questions will be addressed during the “public comment periods” per schedule or get answered via email.
  3. The participants will be able to create a discussion and ask questions during a “discussion period” as mentioned in the schedule.
  4. Do not close your session or logout during the seminar, you may leave any time in between but your re-login may not be connected as it may interrupt the system. You can log-out after the event finishes.
  5. You may not ask personal questions or non-subject related questions during the event.
  6. Show up on time. You may not disrupt the presentation by logging late, but you may miss important information. “- Arriving on time prevents you from wasting additional time contacting the presenter after the fact to find out what you missed,”
  7. Turning on your webcam during the presentation is desirable.
  8. Wait for your turn in a live setting, so you can see who has a question? or when a presenter is ready for an interruption?. You may need to rely on cues such as hand-raising icons or questions posted in chats.
  9. Ask questions concisely. Webinars are focused; be sure your questions are, too and not duplicated. Avoid wasting time in lengthy introductions, and don't self-promote or spend a lot of time sharing your opinion before asking a question. If you have comments, ask yourself if they will help others before commenting.
  10. Don't use the chat room as your personal water cooler. Just like you would not stand in the back of the room gossiping with someone while a presenter was lecturing, refrain from using the chat room just to socialize.
  11. Any Cyber bullying, spamming, demeaning or any action of abuse of respected participants or speaker will not be tolerated and will be subject for cancelation of attendance.
