CSL In Session is an online learning series from the Colorado State Library. The series is made up of free, hour-long virtual classes on a broad range of library-related topics, delivered about once a month. These are not your standard information-dump-style “webinars.” We’re planning interactive online classes where participation is central to your learning, and where you go away with distinct takeaways that can be immediately applied in your libraries and in your professional lives.
Classes are held online in Adobe Connect at https://enetlearning.adobeconnect.com/cslinsession. All that is needed to participate is a computer with internet access and a headset or speakers. Simply enter as a guest! Learner participation in each session takes place via chat, so a phone line or microphone isn’t needed. At this time, no registration is required.
Audio Guide to CSL In Session
CSL In Session events are held in Adobe Connect. The sound portion is via VoIP, so computer speakers or a headset are needed to hear. Attendees contribute via chat, so no microphones are needed. If you experience issues with audio, which include not hearing any sound, or choppy audio, please go through the following steps to troubleshoot.
- Go through the meeting connection test. You can test your computer by using this link and running the diagnostic test which will check your computer compatibility, browser compatibility, your Internet connection and speed. https://enetlearning.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm
- Check that you can hear other sounds. If you pass the connection test but can’t hear, check that you can hear other sounds through your headset or speakers. Test on a random YouTube video. If you aren’t able to hear sounds there, you won’t be able to hear sounds in Connect.
- Check that your headset is plugged in, that it’s working, that you have sound capability on your computer, and that you don’t have your volume muted. It’s a good idea to reboot your computer with your headset plugged in, to see if you can get the computer to recognize the device.
Still have choppy audio?
If your audio is choppy, there is, unfortunately, little we can do to solve your issue. VoIP events take bandwidth. Some attendees have slow connections to the Internet, or other things competing for limited bandwidth in one’s organization or via one’s Internet provider.
We optimize our Connect settings to allow for the best experience for the highest number of participants, and individual bandwidth issues are out of our control. For this reason, we typically aren’t able to help when there’s choppy audio for some participants. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and encourage you to view the archived recording after the session. All recordings are linked here on the CSL In Session site.
If your connection speed is too slow to participate, it is possible you don’t have enough bandwidth available at the moment to participate in the session. In this case, you are welcome to view the meeting recording after the session. All recordings are linked on the calendar after the session, or you can search the site by session title.
