The technology you will need
You will need a Chrome, Firefox or Chromium web browser installed on your PC/Laptop/MAC and a webcam or built-in camera. A headset may secure a better online meeting experience for your own sound and how you sound to other meeting participants.
To access your meeting from a mobile phone, iPad or tablet, please download the NetworkIN app ahead of the meeting:
Virtual meetings offer the best experience if accessed from a laptop or desktop computer. If you only have a mobile or tablet, there is an app available to access the meeting platform – please click here to download it.
Test your tech before the meeting
To feel comfortable that everything is working correctly, please log into a test meeting room and check your settings – do this a couple of days prior to the scheduled meeting. This includes checking:
If you have a headset, earphones or a microphone, check they work clearly without feedback or noise distortion.
During your meeting
During the meeting your Co-ordINator will let you know of any sound or video issues so there’s no need to check if people can hear or see you. Sometimes you may see the video thumbnails of fellow advocate videos turn black. This is normal due to the system managing the connection bandwidth.
