  • Thank you for joining today’s presentation on the ________ programs at Heinz College.My name is ________________ and I am the [title]. Joining me today are the following individuals (introduce all).[next slide]
  • We already covered introductions, so next I will review the GoToWebinar interface so you know how to best view and participate in today’s presentation.Then, I’ll briefly talk about Carnegie Mellon University and how Heinz College fits into the university as a whole.Following that, [name(s)] will tell you about our [program names] programs.Then [name] will finish up with some information about the application process and scholarships. At the end, we will use any remaining time to discuss questions that came up during the course of the Webinar and/or to answer any questions we have not yet had a chance to reply to over the chat.
  • Before we get started, I want to review a few housekeeping items and let you know how you can participate in today’s Web event. We’re looking at an example of the GoToWebinar Attendee Interface which is made up of two parts. The Viewer Window on the left, which allows you to see everything the Presenter will share on their screen, and the Control Panel at the right. Within that Control Panel is how you can participate in today’s event, so let’s look at that.
  • Move mouse over the Grab TabClicks 1, 2, and 3By clicking the orange arrow, you can open and close your control PanelClick 4From the View Menu you can also set the Control Panel not to auto-hide when inactive if you prefer to keep it always open. Click 5The Audio pane provides audio information. (If the organizer has given attendees a choice) By default you have joined the Webinar via Mic & Speakers. Click 6Click Audio Setup to select your computer speaker or headset devices.Clicks 4, 5 and 6If you prefer, you can join the audio via telephone by selecting Use Telephone, and the dial-in information will be displayed, including an Audio PIN. Please note that long distance telephone and/or cellular fees will be charged to you. We will not be unmuting any attendees today to avoid audio problems that may arise with many attendees, but we will discuss questions you type as we are able. [Only if small number of participants: If you would like to ask any questions of today’s presenters over the phone, you must enter your Audio PIN in order to have your line unmuted. ] Click 7At any time during the presentation, you have the ability to send questions to our Webinar staff through the Questions pane. Simply type in your question and click send. We will type answers in reply as we are able during the session. (Optional) At the end of the presentation we will do a Q&A session to answer as many questions as we have time for and to cover any questions we may not have been able to answer yet using the chat feature. Click 8Only applicable if unmuting attendees: During the presentation we may ask you to answer a question by raising your hand. This option is located on the Grab Tab. (Optional) You can also indicate that you have a question and would like your line unmuted by raising your hand. Click 9 and 10We will address Q&A at the end of today’s session, and as a final reminder, today’s Webinar Q&A is being recorded, and everyone will receive an email within the next few days with a link to view a transcript of the Q&A chat as well as today’s presentation slides.
