Galen utilizes GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar during many interactions with our clients from weekly status calls, to our free online training webcasts to our tailored, in-depth online training programs.

This page provides a quick overview of how to use each, once you have joined the webcast.


Registration / Signing Up

A few simple steps:

  1. Receive the link to register for the webcast.
  2. Register - fill in your contact information
  3. Add webcast to your calendar (GoToWebinar provides links to create an Outlook Calendar entry)

Attending a webcast

Once you join a webcast, you will be added as a participant to view the webcast. There are two ways to interact with the presenter(s) - the chat window, and raising your hand.

Let's take a look at the GoToWebinar application.

When you join, you will see this window:

To ask a question, simply type it in the Chat Window:

Some presenters will utilize the "hand raising" feature within GoToWebinar. Most presenters will respond to a participant by un-muting their line to allow them to ask a question.
