  • Make sure those who brought a device are able to connect to the wireless Internet.
  • Make sure those who are attending the workshop online able to hear and/or speak during the workshop.
  • If you set a "Display After" date for the announcement because you don't want students to see the announcement right away, the email will still be sent to those students as soon as you submit the announcement, which is a bit confusing.
