Recommendations

  • Every program includes a 15-30 minute test connection prior to the program.
  • The test period is a perfect time to review videoconferencing behavioral expectations as well as go over any instructions regarding microphone usage, camera locations, etc.
  • Have your confirmation information with you the day of the program. It includes all appropriate contact phone numbers and conference numbers necessary in the event of technical problems.
  • We recommend that teachers select the student(s) from their site to ask/answer questions.
