How to Participate in the OES Webcast
During the webcast, you will watch slides on your computer, hear the sound through its speakers and send questions and comments through a dedicated system on the webcast “console.”
To participate in the webcast, you need a computer with the following:
- access to the internet (high speed is best but dial-up can work)
- speakers in or attached to your computer
- access to your computer’s sound function (some servers disable the sound)
- external speakers or headphones to enhance sound (if working on a laptop).
It is advisable to test your system before the webcast. To do so, you may test the archived presentation from the February 4 OES Consultation meeting. Click on: Test presentation.
If you work on a network/server you may need to contact your IT administrator.
To access the webcast, click on the URL below and follow the instructions that will appear. Even though you have pre-registered with OES for this event, you will need to complete each field of a short log-in form to gain entry to the webcast ‘lobby’ page. Once you have logged into the webcast, you will only need your email address to re-enter.
You may click on the webcast link now or at any time before or after the event in order to register with the webcast host and to gain entry on March 11th. Click on the link below and follow the log-in steps.

Launching the Webcast Slides
The webcast console will go live 15 minutes before the event starts. To view the presentation, you will need to choose a “player” (either Windows Media or Real Player).
Slides will advance automatically after the webcast begins (you cannot advance them).
Participating in the Webcast
As you listen to the webcast, we encourage you to submit questions or comments at any time (including during the presentation or question periods). Type your question/comment directly into the interactive box to the left of the slides on the console and include your name and affiliation.
Your questions and comments will receive a response or acknowledgement either by:
- by the speaker during a scheduled question and answer session, or
- directly, as a pop-up on your console screen or
- email at a later time
Please note – your comments are not viewable to other webcast participants.
Exiting the Webcast
If you would like to exit the presentation, you may do so at anytime (simply by closing your browser window or visiting another URL). You may also re-enter at any time, including breaks.
If you do have difficulties, check first with your IT department. If your IT staff are unable to resolve the problem, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
If you have any concerns about accessing the webcast, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If the slide console fails to open, it could be because your firewall and/or "pop-up" blocker is activated. Try disabling these systems during the webcast.
Once the slides are in progress, you may also click on the “help” button to the left of the console to request assistance. OES or a representative of CNW (the host company for the webcast) will respond promptly.
