There are typically two reasons.

>If you have a MAC, it will occasionally fail to load.If you have a spinning icon or it say setting up meeting, but has no result in about 5 minutes, then shut down and re-boot the system.This will usually solve the problem.

>The program says you need to download the Zoom app.There is a link and it downloads easily.Then access to the meeting can be made.

Generally there is no need to download any software.

Occasionally Zoom will say there is a need for a software download.A link is provided at that time

 

Is there an additional cost to download software?

How do I ask questions during the program?

Asking questions is an extremely important component of the program. Several avenues are provided.

>Text messaging me at (817) 680-0239.

>There is a chat icon where messages can be sent.If you use this, make sure I get the question.

>I have the system set where you can unmute your microphone.This is the most efficient method because you know I get the question AND everyone else can hear it.This is my preferred method.

 

Do I have access to the program after it is over?

I record the programs. You will be provided a link (upon request) to access it in the future if you wish to.

 

What if Iím not able to get to a computer?

A phone number is provided to access the program via your phone.This may only provide audio.You will be sent notes prior to the program so you can visualize the program if you are only doing audio. This is helpful in that occasionally schedules get altered, so you can still gain access to the program.

 

How do you know Iím attending the program?

When you log in, I will see an icon with your sign in.If you sign in with your name, then I will know you are there.If you sign in with some other title, I will ask you to identify yourself. I will have check-in at various times to confirm current attendance where you will either send a text, chat, or unmute your microphone to answer the roll call.This is extremely important for compliance. If you are unable to communicate by either of these methods, let me know prior to the program and we will determine a way to verify attendance.
