About This Article
This article explains how to access a mini online training course once you have made a booking.
Find Your Confirmation Email
When you booked you should have received a confirmation email from us about the event. Contained in that email is a link to click to access the event.
Accessing the Course
Once you click the link you will be taken to the course holding page. We use a service called Zoho Showtime to deliver our mini online training events and this is where you will be taken.
If you don’t have one of the above browsers, you can download the Zoho Showtime desktop app. From the holding page, click the Browser Not Supported warning from the bottom right of the page, click the green download link and follow the instructions. You can see more detailed instructions here.
Here is the process to access (without the app)
- Click the link that you received into your mailbox
- On the welcome page, click Enter Session. If the trainer is there then you will connect immediately. If not, a message will ask you to wait for a short while then try again
- Check your mic and camera are working. You don’t really need a camera and audio for these sessions, but you are welcome to share them. Click Continue
- That’s it. You can now enjoy the course
Once in the course, you can use the links on the left of your page to enhance your experience. You can use the Questions button to ask the trainer and the other audience members questions
You can take part in any polls that the trainer makes available.
You can use the chat button to enter the course chat room.
And you can use the notes link to make any notes about the course that you can save for later.
Exiting the Course
To exit the course, click the red exit button on the bottom left of the screen. Please feel free to rate your experience and help us to improve the courses that we deliver.
