Before we begin, I’d like to go over how the webinar tools work, particularly for those of you who are new to online trainings. We are using the GoToWebinar platform. As attendees, you have a control panel on the right hand side of your screen, like the one shown on the screen. You can minimize or maximize your control panel by clicking on the orange arrow at the top left of the panel. Most people’s control panel are set to minimize by default, and you will just see the small tool bar instead. Just click on the orange arrow to get your control panel back to size whenever you want it. If you are joining us today by telephone you will need to enter your audio pin. If you are using VOIP, please make sure you have selected Mic & Speakers. You can switch between the two at any point if you want. You will lose audio briefly, but it shouldn’t take more than a minute to make the switch. All callers have been automatically placed on mute, but we also encourage you to mute yourselves (you can select *6 to mute and unmute if you are using a telephone or mute your microphone if you are using VOIP). We really want to hear your questions and feedback throughout the training. There are two ways to communicate with us during the training; first, you can type a question at any time into the question log, and we’ll type the answer back to you – we may share any comments or questions in the comments box with all participants if appropriate. Second, if you’d like to ask the presenter a question directly or have something you’d like to add or comment on, please press the ‘raise your hand button’ on the Control Panel, and we will un-mute you so that you can speak. We will pause after each presenter.
I would like to note that this training is being recorded, so that we can make it available to you and your co-workers on the LSNTAP website. You will receive an email once this material has been posted, with a link directing you to it. I welcome you to share the recording and other resources with your co-workers who might not have been able to attend today’s live training. I would like to note that today’s training is presented by Pro Bono Net in partnership with LSNTAP and the Northwest Justice Project with funding provided by an LSC TIG grant.
