WEBINARS - DISTANCE LEARNING AT ITS FINEST
OUR WEBINAR COURSES COME TO YOU
LIVE, INTERACTIVE AND IN REAL TIME.
In The Company of Writers offers an exemplary and growing choice of broad-spectrum educational opportunities for writers working in all genres and at all levels of their careers.
Our courses are delivered by some of the best teachers... Writers, Poets, Professors, Editors, Freelancers, Screen, Television and Playwrights, Publishers, and Book Marketing experts in the US and elsewhere.
Classes can be conducted simultaneously from multiple locations. Usually it is our office in conjunction with the presenter's location… home, office, vacation cottage, anywhere in the world where there is both a telephone and a computer with high speed internet access available. The stable technology we utilize enables this to happen.
All participanting students can see the text supporting the lecture, no matter how much there is of it, on the "virtual blackboard"... their own computer, in their home or office. They can also hear the lecturer on their telephone (a speaker phone is recommended for this).
During the Q&A portions of any session everyone can hear everyone else so that good questions and their informative responses can be heard by all. It is the next best thing to being there. And... like the presenter, attendees can take the class wherever they are… and in their pajamas, if they like!
HOW WEBINARS WORK

NOTE: In order to get both AUDIO and VIDEO for the Webinar, just prior to its beginning you must dial in to the phone number you receive, give your personal Code# and click the link on your computer, to the Webinar.
When you click the link to view the VIDEO portion of the Webinar you will automatically download a small temporary program that enables you to view the video and ask questions. This is a SAFE program to allow on your computer and disappears the moment the session is finished.
If your computer’s firewall blocks the program, make sure you ALLOW
the program to download AND tell your firewall software that it's okay
for the program to access the Internet (create a rule if needed).
3 . If this is your first time on a Webinar, make sure you click the Webinar link at least 5 minutes BEFORE the session starts so you can download the software and make any necessary adjustments to your firewall.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE HIGH SPEED INTERNET you will need to sign in even earlier to give your system time to connect.
PLEASE DO NOT WAIT until 2 minutes before the Webinar to do this because tech support will not be available on the phone right before the Webinar is starting. Thank you.
And don't worry this will be an easy...fun...and most importantly, EDUCATIONAL
experience for you!
