Presenters should enter the Adobe Connect virtual room 30 minutes early. All others should enter the Adobe Connect virtual room 5 to 10 minutes early. You will be placed in our waiting room until the session starts.
Who can help me if I have tech issues during a LWOW Live Session?
If you have tech issues during a session and you are not in the Adobe Connect virtual room (i.e. you can't get into the room or you were kicked out and can't get back in), please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have tech issues during a session and you are in the Adobe Connect virtual room, please send a private chat within Adobe Connect to Lauren Madigan.
Are the LWOW Live Sessions recorded? How can I watch them?
We record each week's LWOW Live Session. Recordings will be posted here within 72 hours of the session's conclusion. Please be patient as the videos can take up to 60 seconds to begin after clicking on the links, and note that the quality/synching of the recordings is usually worse than the quality/synching in the live sessions. For this reason, we encourage you to join us live. Archived LWOW Live Session recordings can be watched here.
