Can I ask questions and interact with the speaker and other participants?
You can always type your questions and comments in the text chat and if you would like to speak, then you simply request the mic. Please keep in mind, that many of the presenters are new to Adobe Connect and might not be able to read the text chat whilst presenting. Our moderators are at hand to make sure your questions and your comments are forwarded to the guest speakers and will bring them to his or her attention. If you want to speak in private with the moderator or with other participants, you can use private text chat. This private text chat is not viewed by anyone else but you and the person whom you are chatting to (this is different in Blackboard Collaborate, where all private text chat is seen by room moderators).

What can I do if a session is full?
The Adobe Connect room has a restricted capacity and when this is full, you will not be able to enter. We operate on a first-come-first-served basis, therefore so it is advisable to come early to get a virtual seat. If however, the session is full, you can watch the livestream on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/letstalkonlinedotcom/live or embedded on Facebook

Will the sessions be recorded?
All of the session will be recorded and you will be asked to consent to this being recorded at the beginning of the sessions. The conference recordings will be available on our Virtual Round Table Web Conference (http://www.virtual-round-table.com) website.

Can I get a certificate? If you wish to receive a certificate of attendance, please order it on http://vrtwebcon2018.eventbrite.com. They are not free. 15 EUR per certificate and you can offer a donation of as low as 1 EUR if you are in a country with low income. We will then send you a certificate of attendance after verifying this with our participants attendance records. 

What is the difference between attending Adobe Connect or
Livestream?

There is not a lot of a difference for those attending. The Adobe room capacity is limited and Livestream is not. We wanted to make sure that everyone can attend the keynotes. So, when you see the message: "Adobe Connect has reached maximum capacity", then you can always attend the keynotes via the livestream. You can chat and comment and ask questions in both settings and the questions will be forwarded to the presenter in real-time. You will see and hear and follow the presentations almost the same. The livestream feels a little bit like 'watching TV' whilst being in Adobe feels nearer to the presenter.

What are the system requirements for Adobe Connect?
Adobe Connect is a flash based solution and requires Flash player 9.0 or above. To ensure that your computer and network connections are properly configured for Adobe Connect, go to this system and connection test. Broadband Internet connection is required. You can test your connection speed with the following tool http://www.speedtest.net. You need a minimum of 1 Mbps download to attend the conference.

What are the system requirements for the Livestream?
Livestream requires you to be able to watch YouTube which is restricted in some countries. Please send me an email if this is the case and we make sure to reserve you a seat in Adobe Connect. 

Do I need to install software?
No. No software installation is required, nor any password. In the case of Adobe Connect, please click on Enter as Guest. Simply type your name and your city, for example 'John Smith (Illinois)'.
