Enten Running Webcast

If you've participated before, you know this is easy.  But what if you want to participate in a live web meeting (also known as webinars, or broadcasts) through Bethany, and don't know how to do it?  No problem!  If you can click a link and type your name and city, that's about it.  All you have to do is follow the simple instructions below, and you will be able to see and hear all that is going on right within your internet browser--just like you are seeing this page now!

Looking for quick links to broadcasts, or recordings of past broadcasts?  Jump to Bethany's Webcast Vault.  For more complete instructions, keep reading and use the links below.

 


Directions to participate live in meetings and broadcasts:

Bethany currently utilizes two different platforms for broadcasting, choosing the tool which best fits the content and format of the presentation.

  • For broadcasts based on our Livestream platform, when you click the link to the broadcast, you will be taken directly to the page with the live stream (if a broadcast is in process).  You will also see all previous broadcasts in that series, as well as Hints for Viewing (highly recommended--scroll to the very bottom of that page). 
          You are welcome to post comments and questions to the broadcast, but as Livestream does not support anonymous comments, to do so requires opening a free account (or logging in with Facebook, for instance).
  • For broadcasts based on our Adobe Connect platform, when you click the link to the broadcast, you will first be taken to a Connect login page.  Simply login as a Guest by (a) entering your Name and Location in the Name box under "Enter as a Guest" (e.g., "Enten Eller -- Richmond, IN"), and then clicking [Enter Room] to be joined to the broadcast.  As you have already logged in, you are welcome to type in comments or questions freely.
     

Hints for either platform:

  • Please be sure that your speakers are turned up.  For laptops, external powered speakers (or a headset) are highly recommended, as typical laptop speakers are too small for helpful voice reproduction and clarity.
     
  • Maximize your browser window in order to view as large as possible.  Close extraneous toolbars for more space. Google Chrome is not recommended, as it restricts functionality for speed.
     
  • If you are part of a meeting or course for which you presenting--that is, you are to share your voice, video, and/or materials--it is critically important for the integrity of the broadcast that you fully comply with the additional requirements for headsets or earbuds, plus mics, webcams, and software.  Instructions will have been provided for you.
     
  • For technical assistance, you may contact Enten Eller, Director of Electronic Communication (contact information below).

Nan Erbaugh
Emphasis in Peace Studies '08

NanBethany taught me so much. I didn't realize what a loner I had really been all my life until I opened myself to life within the Bethany community. I felt stretched, pushed, and affirmed in amazing, helpful ways. The importance of a close, supportive community cannot be overestimated, especially in light of the challenges faced living out the peace witness to which I feel called. At Bethany, I gained more courage to step into this crucial niche of the Church of the Brethren. Add the grounded, spiritual theological foundation and academic depth I gained through course work, and I feel transformed in a powerful, positive way to serve God.
