  1. Read all these instructions.
  2. You need a personal registration ID to join this      month’s webinar.  There is unlimited space for participants, the ID      simply provides you the necessary access code.  Obtain your      registration ID via:       If      prompted for a password,      use            C0rne11F0rest      (the      word “CornellForest” except the o = zero= 0 and L = the number 1; the      numbers are in red font).
  3. On the webpage where the above link takes you, look for      the option to “register” to receive your “registration id” number.       Note this page also includes the option to download resources related to      this webinar (if available).
  4. Wait for the email that contains your personal      “registration id” number (a couple minutes at most usually).
  5. Pasted below is an example of the email you will      receive after following the preceding steps.
  6. As illustrated in my example below, join the webinar      via the “click here” button to open into your default web browser (e.g.,      Internet Explorer or Firefox).  The “click here” button should open into      the webinar, or display a page indicating the webinar is not active.       If the webinar is not active, that means the host isn’t connected and you      will need to wait until the host connects.  If the page opens into a      rather generic “Cisco WebEx” page then your browser may not be compatible      with WebEx and you should copy and paste the full link (see example below,      it follows “click here”) into an alternate web browser.  Using an      alternate web browser usually solves most connection problems.
  7. Test the sound capacity of your computer by accessing a      website with sound (e.g., video clip on a news website, Youtube,      etc.). 
  8. As you enter the webinar, you may be asked to test your      media player.  If so, you will need to complete that step.
  9. As you enter the webinar, you will be given the option      to download software; you can bypass that step and enter the webinar      directly.  I’m not aware of any problems that have arisen from      downloading the software (which streamlines subsequent access, but you      should make this decision for yourself.
