Must participants speak?Apr 8, 2011

Is it possible to simply observe without having to speak? I have headphones, however, for purposes of being in a quiet environment I wouldn't be able to engage in discussion.

Attendees' microphones will be mutedApr 8, 2011

Hello Simona,

Attendees's microphones are muted during this webinar. This means that there is no discussion or audio conversation during the course.

However, you will all be able to communicate with me through a chat box, posting questions, making comments and volunteering to receive live feedback on your profiles during the workshop portion.

See you at the webinar!

Kind regards,

Lucía
