SHARCNET makes a number of seminar events available online (New User Seminar, general interest talks, etc.) using software/services from [http://www.vidyo.com/ Vidyo]. Vidyo allows both the presenter and the attendees to offer or participate in online seminars using their web browser plus a small application one has to install when the service is used for the first time. If this is your first Vidyo seminar please join the seminar ahead of the official start, to sort out any technical issues. Vidyo is supported on most platforms, both "stationary" (Windows, MacOS, Linux) and mobile (iOS, Android).

SHARCNET makes a number of seminar events available online (New User Webinar, general interest talks, etc.) using Zoom. Zoom can be used by either installing an app (available for Windows, Mac, Linux etc), or running it in a browser (no installation required). A (free) Zoom account is required for attending our webinars. Since July 2020 our webinars require registration. The registration link is provided on the event page in our Events calendar, https://www.sharcnet.ca/my/news/calendar .

Please note that if your device has a microphone (highly recommended) and/or webcam, they will be used by Zoom to transmit your audio and video to all seminar participants. They are normally off by default, but you can enable them by clicking on a corresponding button at the bottom of your Zoom window - but only when allowed by the host. Normally we do not allow attendees to use their mikes during the webinar, but we have special time for questions and answers at the end of each webinar when the mikes can be enabled. Generally, please keep your mike muted (and webcam disabled) unless you want to ask a question.

We normally record our seminars, and make them available to all SHARCNET users. The recordings are posted on our youtube channel, http://youtube.sharcnet.ca . The links to the video recordings, slides and abstracts can be found on our online seminars page.

Please note that times for our webinars are for the Eastern Time (EST/EDT) zone.
