When you have logged in, you will see this on your computer screen*:

*If you call in by phone/skype, you won’t see this screen (of course).

This is your control panel:

If you don’t see the screen, then you  have to try and find this icon on your  computer (it is usually on the desktop, on the top or on the bottom of your  screen) and click on it:

How does your control panel work?

We will run through the features:

  • Use Mic & Speakers

When you call in by computer, always make sure you have ticked the circle “Mic & Speakers”, so that we can hear you.

During webinars, you are muted. We will unmute you when you want to speak.  When you are unmuted, the following icon will change colour from grey to green.
