Tools & Tips for Virtual Event Attendees

Before attending a virtual event, be sure to read through these tools & tips to make the most out of your experience.

Equipment and Materials

Test Your Equipment in Advance

  • Please test and check your system at least 15 minutes prior to event. This includes your network connection, device battery life, and speakers.
  • We recommend you use a computer or a tablet for the best experience. The system is not responsive on a cell phone.
  • We recommend you use Chrome or Firefox to access the webinar. Other browsers are not compatible with the webinar system.

Control Your Environment as Best You Can

  • Mute other devices that might interfere with your computer audio.
  • Create a learning-conducive environment, eliminating as many distractions as possible. Close out of other tabs and mute notifications, if possible.
  • Prepare your space with anything you may need during the virtual program (appropriate chargers, note-taking materials, water, etc.).

Troubleshooting Technical Difficulties

  • The webinar technology runs on higher bandwidth. Please know that some WiFi connections may be spotty.
  • Some networks cause slides to advance more slowly than others. If your slides are behind or you are having audio issues, please try to refresh the page.
  • MFNW staff will be available to help during the show - either chat with us at our booth, email us at events@multifamilynw.org or call 503-213-1281.

 Engagement Through Chat and Q&A Features for Classes

  • Take note of how the presenter intends to utilize the chat feature as well as the Q&A field. Participate in questions and polls to stay engaged with the session.
  • Questions for the presenters can be submitted through the Q&A function. Chat is a great way to engage and connect with other attendees or exhibitors attending the sessions.
