For Online Participants


1. Recommend using a laptop or desktop PC, not a mobile device.

2. Check your internet connection.

Make sure you have a reliable, strong Internet connection (private wifi or internet cable is recommend). The minimum speed required is 10 - 15 Mbps. You can always check your internet speed at http://www.fast.com/.

3. Recommend to use an external microphone.

For the best audio experience, please use a headset, earbuds, or external USB microphone. This avoids background noise and echos.
