Joining the Meeting Online - *Note- this meeting is only open to SC members and Component Leads*

For the online meeting, we will use the GoToMeeting Platform (www.gotomeeting.com). If you have not used this system before, we suggest logging on ~10 minutes before the start of the call - a small plugin will need to be downloaded from the web and installed on your computer the first time you use it (after that you should not need to reinstall the plug in). You have the ability to test your audio to make sure we can hear you, etc. There is a chat box that you can use to ask questions, chat to other online participants, etc. You will be able to hear the presenter and see the slides. You can also share webcams if you would like, but this is only advisable with high bandwidth. A headset is recommended to reduce feedback, but it is not necessary if you are in a quiet space and are able to control the volume on your computer and pay attention to muting yourself when not speaking. Please be sure to mute your line (by clicking the green microphone icon) when you are not speaking to reduce background noise. If for some reason you cannot hear or speak, you should check under Audio on the side panel to make sure Mic and Speakers is checked, and not telephone (if you are using the built-in audio). If that does not work, its probably something with your computer settings - check your volume on both the computer and headset, make sure your computer has a mic that works, etc. … if you can’t get it to work, just use the telephone number.

If you are a presenter, the organizer can give you the ability to share your computer screen. This means that you can give a presentation from your own computer and use whatever platform you normally do (ie PC, Mac, Keynote, PowerPoint, etc*).

*Please note that a PC or Mac is required (Android or Apple mobile devices can also be used). Unfortunately gotomeeting does not work with LINUX based machines. More information about system requirements can be found here: http://support.citrixonline.com/GoToMeeting/all_files/GTM010003
