Test Your Computer’s Ability to Receive The Broadcast: On the computer you will be using, go to (http://elearning.etsu.edu/womenconflive.htm) to see if you will have firewall problems related to accessing the broadcast. You will see a short video related to the broadcast. Use it to test your internet speed (if it is too slow the video will break up). Check the sound level. Once you have the video on the screen, click the icon on the far right in the tool bar of the video frame so that the picture will fill the whole screen. If everything is working well you have done everything necessary to assure you have access to the conference on that day. (You will use the same link to access the broadcast on that day).
