NICEC will be holding the its first webinar on Wednesday 13th June at 1pm. This is a new activity and so we are treating it as a pilot. We would like to invite any interested parties to attend.
The webinar will last for an hour (between 1pm and 2pm) and include presentations from:
Tristram Hooley (iCeGS, University of Derby) – Framing the relationship between the internet and career development
Madeline Paterson (Symmetry Coaching and University of Southampton) – Managing your online profile, growing your professional networks, developing your career.
What will happen during the session?
You will be able to see the presenters’ slides and (if you have earphones or a speaker) hear them talk.
If you have a microphone, you’ll be able to participate verbally or you can use text talk (similar to Instant Messaging)
Do I need to do anything to be able to take part in the session?
If want to join us in one of the sessions, you’ll need:
Access to an internet connected computer, ideally using a broadband connection
To use a cabled internet connection instead of wireless where possible
Headphones to listen to the session (this is better than open speakers if you are using a microphone)
A microphone built in to a headset, or a stand alone microphone so you can talk to us during the session.
You can also use a webcam to take part in the sessions, but that’s optional. Don’t worry if you’ve not got one – or if you have one but don’t want to use it.
You’ll need to download some software to be able to take part in this session (this software helps to make sure that your PC will run the application without any problems). Don’t worry, the software’s safe, and there’s a wizard to help you do it.
Just go to: http://derbylive.wimba.com/wizard/launcher.cgi?wc=wms
The wizard is designed to make sure Java versions are correct, as well as ensuring pop-ups are not blocked from the website and making sure headphone playback and microphone recording are working. Please do this in plenty of time for the session. We suggest you start doing so 30 minut before the session starts.
Can anyone help me if I have any problems loading the software?
I’ve loaded the software, how do I log into the session?
Once you’ve got all the software installed, you’ll need to log in either just before or during the session opening times(session will be taking place on Wednesday 13th June at 1pm-2pm).
Here’s the web link to get into the session.
Room ID: NICEC_Seminar
You’ll need to create a screen name which should be your first name and the first letter of your surname. Then you’re in the session. If you log in early, you’ll be able to familiarise yourself with some of the icons available, but when the session starts, we’ll go through this with everyone who’s participating.
What if I cannot access the session online?
You can optionally participate over the phone although you may miss some of the onscreen interactions.
