I joined the session, but no one is there.

All start times are in the Pacific time zone. If you are in a different time zone, please verify the correct start time for your location. In addition, the phone line will not open until 20 minutes before the webinar. If you call in before then, you will not be able to connect.

Is there a limit to how many people can log into the presentation?

Each live web event is limited to 200 computer connections. We encourage participation by groups in the same work site. If the session is full and you are not able to join, we will send you the link to the archived recording after it ends.

Do I need to download anything to my computer to join a webinar?

No. If you have Flash player installed, you do not need to download anything to join the session.

I went into full screen mode in a session. Where did my controls go?

If you clicked the Full Screen button, the slides will occupy your entire screen. To go back to the normal view, click the Full Screen button again (move your mouse to the top of the slides to see it).
