Mac Users: On Thursday January 31st, Apple blocked and disabled all versions of Java in OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and later. This means you will not be able to run the webinar application. If you are using a Mac computer, please be sure to have the most recent OS (Mountain Lion) and the most recent Java update installed. Go to your Apple menu and click on Software Updates and install any software updates that are available. The webinar software will not work if your Java is not up to date or if you have any version of OS 10.6.
The Power Point presentation will be made available on our website immediately after the webinar.
Special Accommodations: The provided accommodations are interpreters, captioning, the PowerPoint slides in an accessible format, and screen readers. For screen reader users, please contact Jessie Zhu at 435-797-3445 or email her at Jessie.email@example.com prior to the webinar to make sure that your accommodation will allow for successful participation.
ASL Interpreters: The webinar will be presented in spoken English with an ASL interpretation. The interpreters will be streamed within the webinar system. A video window will automatically open once the streaming is activated. It can be detached from the video panel and closed if desired or moved around or expanded depending on your individual or group needs.
Closed Captioning: To access Closed Captioning, please click on the closed captioning icon above the video window. If you are using screen reader technology, please contact Jessie to discuss accommodation options.
Evaluation: We are required by our Federal funding agency to evaluate our activities. At the end of the webinar a satisfaction survey will automatically open. Please help us determine the effectiveness of the webinar content and format by filling this out completely. The results will be reported confidentially and will not be associated with your personal information.
CEUs/ACETs: You may request CEUs or ACET credits. To sign up for CEUs/ACETs, you must complete the satisfaction survey at the end of the webinar. Once you submit the evaluation, instructions on how to request CEUs will appear on the screen. You must attend the entire webinar to qualify for CEUs. Your attendance will be tracked by the webinar system.
It is very important that you use your full name when signing in, as that will be the way we verify your attendance should you need ACET credits or CEUs.
Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for joining us.
