You can access the webinar using the following link:
Or copy-paste the following URL in its entirety into your browser:
Click the link above or copy-paste the URL into your favorite browser. The software works in a Java window, accessed from your default browser when you click the link. NOTE: If your default browser is Safari, copy paste the link into some other browser. Safari does not work, or at least not on a Mac with OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Other browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera) should be ok. We did not try IE-9 or 10, but the Blackboard website says they should work.
After clicking the link, you should be presented with some choices (which differ on Mac and PC). Click "OK" and "Accept" as needed to enable a session display on your monitor.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
The audio is very good. So is the video. We recommend the use of headphones to limit echo. Visitors can chat, raise hands, and generally heckle the presenter to their heart's desire with emoticons and even a thumbs-down symbol. Visitors can ask questions out loud by pressing the ‘Talk’ button, but we ask that you depress the ‘Talk’ button when finished speaking, which turns off your microphone and will limit background noise. The session will be recorded and archived for those who cannot attend. However, our view is that the webinar will be merrier for all involved with real-time participation.

Both Windows 8 and Mac OSX 10.8 have some known issues according to the blackboard website. Hopefully problems will be rare. While you won’t be able to join the session until 30 minutes before the scheduled start, you can check your operating system and browser compatibility at any time by joining the "v12 Configuration Room" accessible here (scroll down).
