○ Organising a webinar
Organise a webinar meeting using a webinar tool. It does not matter which tool you use, so long that it contains a universal link which allows all learners to log into the webinar. Tools that provide a unique link for each learner, cannot be used in aNewSpring.
The following tools are tested and can be used in aNewSpring:
- Adobe Connect
- Google Hangouts
- GoToMeeting (also GoToTraining, GoToWebinar)
It could be the case that the designer of the course template has already organised a webinar. In that case no action needs to be taken. You can only organise a webinar if the designer of the course template has added a webinar activity to the course.
First, create a webinar activity in the course template and publish it. If you do not have the designer-role, please ask someone who has to created this activity for you.
Navigate to Settings when at Instruct. You will find this option in the drop-down menu, found when you click on More.
Click on the webinar activity. Next, place a universal link which allows the learners to log into the webinar. Once again, tools that provide a unique link for each learner, cannot be used in aNewSpring.
Once the link is in place, click on Update. Is the activity not active in the course? Then check the box under Active and click on Update at the bottom of the page. The activity is now visible for all learners.
