This class is for people who understand the Connect environment and want practice hosting a meeting. During class you (either by yourself or with a partner) will present for 30 minutes. This is a run through (perhaps a mini-version) of a real meeting you will eventually host once you leave the training classroom.
Prerequisite Classes:

  • Creating Connect Meeting Rooms
  • Broadcasting Audio and Video in Connect Meetings
  • Effectively Using Content in Connect
  • Managing People and the Live Connect Meeting Room Environment
If you have already been actively hosting meetings, you may be eligible to “pass out” of a prerequisite class. Contact Robin Brekke.
Before you arrive to class you will:

  • Have taken the prerequisite classes
  • Signed up for a time slot by contacting Robin Brekke
  • Create the meeting space
  • Create invitations to participants
  • Script the meeting; create and rename layouts as needed
  • Upload all content materials

During your 30 minute meeting, you will: 

  • describe the meeting you will host and your pre-meeting preparations (10 minutes)
  • with real guests logged in, manage the content, manage the room and conduct (and record) your online meeting/session (10 minutes)
  • receive feedback from other participants (10 minutes)

During class you will also:

  • Participate in and provide constructive criticism for someone else’s 30 minute meeting
