These guidelines are to ensure that everyone that joins our sessions have a good experience. Please read through these and try to abide by them throughout the session.

  • If you are not speaking in the session, please make sure to keep your microphone muted so it does not interfere with everyone's audio.
  • There should be limited outside distractions during our session
  • There should not be other people or animals around you, or any inappropriate or offensive posters or pictures on display.
  • All background noise should be kept to a minimum during the session (i.e., TV sound, radios, dogs barking, etc.).
  • Position your camera properly. If you choose to use a web camera, be sure it is in a stable position and focused at eye level, if possible.
  • Be respectful of others while they are talking. Stay off your phones and other devices while you are in the session
  • When you have a question or something you'd like to say, you can use the raise hand function located in the Participant panel.
  • Identify yourself before you start to speak, please state your name so we know who is talking.
