First steps for participants
On the event’s detail page there is a button “book”/”participate” right above the description of the webinar. If the webinar has more than one date, choose your desired date and then click on the button.
If you are not yet registered or signed in on edudip, you have to do this in the next step. Now you have an overview of your chosen webinar and in the case of a paid webinar, you have to choose your desired payment method. Fill in your payment data as well as your billing address and accept the terms and conditions after having checked them.
To book the webinar, click on the button “book with costs”. A link to your webinar which you will also receive via e-mail, appears. When your booking is accepted by the trainer, the button “enter room” appears on the webinar page. With this button you will get into the virtual classroom.
Upload a profile photo to make your profile more individual. You can upload a photo under “Contact details” in your settings. Click on the link “edit profile photo” and in the next step on “select image”. Choose your favourite photo but consider that it should have a maximum size of 1 MB. Crop the image as desired and then click on “save image”.
The installation of a software is not necessary for the participation in webinars. You only need a computer, a browser which is up-to-date with a Flash-Plugin, an internet connection (minimum 6000 DSL line recommended) and speakers. We advise you to make a system check before you take part in a webinar, so that your internet connection, your Flash Player, your sound and camera (optional) is checked. If your bandwidth is not good enough, we advise you to use a lan-connection with cable instead of Wi-Fi because a wireless connection can lead to ups and downs. Moreover, the newest version of the Adobe Flash Player should be installed on your computer to avoid problems in the virtual classroom.
Moreover we advise you to become familiar with the virtual classroom. If you want to try this, you can create a test webinar which you set as “private”. Only you and persons who got a link from you can see the webinar.
After you have successfully booked the webinar, you will receive a confirmation email in which the link for the webinar is provided.
On the page of your booked webinar there is a button “enter room” with which you get into the virtual classroom of your webinar. Before the online seminar starts, you are in the lobby. There you can communicate with other participants in the chat. When the trainer starts the webinar, all participants will automatically be in the virtual classroom.
Note: We recommend to make the system check before entering a webinar.
After you have taken part in a webinar, you have the possibility to evaluate this event. You have one week to do this, after that the possibility of evaluation ends. To evaluate a webinar, click on the bell on the left side of your name in the menu on top. There, an orange number shows you how many events you have not yet evaluated. You can give 1-6 stars for each event. Besides, you can comment on your rating to explain your evaluation. If you don’t want to evaluate a webinar, you have to click on “I don’t want to rate it”.
After pushing the evaluation button, your rating is saved and shown on the event page and in the teacher’s Academy.
For some webinars trainers offer recordings which can be for free or free of charge. When you participated in a webinar which has a video, it is available for free for you. You can find the recordings on the webinar page. When you are logged in, you can see the button “watch video”. When you click on it, the mediabox will open and on the right side you can see all the recordings the trainer offers for this event. Now you can choose your favourite recording and watch it. If you have already watched a recording, you can also see it in the list of your watched videos.
If you are only interested in a video without taking part in the webinar, you can find the video on the webinar page. Click on “watch video” and you will get to the mediabox. If the video is free, you directly go to the mediabox, else you first have to finish the payment process to get to the available videos. Bought videos are always online available for you. Receiving a recording as a DVD or download is unfortunately not possible.
