ACCESS TO THE DIGITAL EVENT
  • After registering to the digital event of interest, on the day of the activity it is necessary to:
    • access the platform
    • select the course
    • reach the Webinar section
    • click on the “LIVE Webinar” link
    To check that everything is working properly (e.g. quality of your connection), we recommend accessing the Webinar a few minutes before the scheduled time.
  • The majority of digital events takes place on “BigBlueButton”, a platform that does not require any software download, just the use of an updated browser (recommended: Chrome and Firefox; please avoid Safari, Internet Explorer).
  • Once you will be logged in you will need to choose between "listener only" or "microphone". In most cases you will need to be able to speak and comment/interact with speakers during the event, therefore we suggest to select the latter option. A short audio test will start. To continue, you will need to click on the green icon with raised thumb.
  • From this moment on you will be logged in the digital event. We kindly ask you to keep your microphone and webcam off when you are not participating in the discussion.
  • Should you need assistance during the event, you can use the chat. AccMed staff will be glad to assist you throughout the activity.
