Student Affairs

Webinars

What can I expect?

The StudentAffairs.com webinars are presented using the audio conferencing technologies managed by ConferTel. Live webinars are conducted in real-time and usually last about one hour. They enable the designated session facilitator to present course material and interact with attendees.

After registration and payment for the webinar, attendees will receive a confirmation email with details and login links to begin their session. When the presentation begins, a moderator will introduce the facilitator who will then proceed with the presentation.

The webinars use PowerPoint as a presentation tool. During the session, polling questions may be asked of the attendees. Questions may also be posed to the facilitator. The queue of requests will then be handled by the moderator in conjunction with the course facilitator during the question and answer phase at the end of the formal presentation.

What are the system requirements?

The audiocast streaming technology will work with both MAC OS and Windows.  Participants are encouraged to perform a System Compatibility Check in advance of the event by visiting https://omni.confertel.net/systemcheck.
