How should I prepare for online training?
At the time of booking:
Check your inbox for a validation email from Sports Leaders. This will confirm you have a place on the training.
You will also receive an email with webinar registration details. It is advisable to register as soon as possible, you will receive details on how to join the webinar and test your hardware/software for compatibility.
On the day of training:
Ensure that your computer is ready to use GoTo Webinar. Your computer may need to install an ‘Add-In’ prior to your first use of this system. If this is required a prompt will pop up on your screen when you log onto the webinar. It should only take about a minute to install.
It’s a good idea to log in five minutes before the webinar is set to start. This way you can ensure all your equipment is working and install anything as required.
Online Tutor Training Troubleshooting
Although technical issues with webinars are rare, these are live events so unpredictable problems can occur. By taking these few simple steps you can minimise potential issues from happening.
Check your internet connection and install your add-in prior to the start:
Most issues occur due to slow internet connection or not having the correct software installed on your PC/laptop. Logging in at least 15 minutes prior to the start time will give you the opportunity to double check these are working before the webinar begins.
Close all other programs on your PC/Laptop:
A slow internet connection can occur if other programs are open. This may reduce the performance of your computer and the webinar itself. Closing all non-vital programs will alleviate this issue.
Ensure that maintenance is not being carried out:
The majority of organisations will inform their colleagues of any required network maintenance prior to it happening. Therefore ensure that this is not going to be carried out throughout the duration of your training. It is also advisable that you ensure GoTo Webinar is not blocked by your organisation prior to training.
