Student Success Webinars are available to anyone who wants to become more familiar with GCU’s websites and resources. Our webinar schedule can be located from the Help Center’s homepage by clicking on the Student Success Webinars link.
After clicking on the Student Success Webinars link, you’ll see a current listing of the webinars that are being offered. To sign up for a webinar you wish to attend, click on the link to select your date.
Select the date and time that works best for you, fill out the required fields located on the registration page, and click Register.
You will receive an email confirming that you have successfully registered for the webinar. Click on the link in the email to join the webinar at the specified time and date.
You will receive a reminder email as the time nears the scheduled webinar. Again, you can click on the link in the email to join the webinar at the specified time and date.
We recommend signing in to the webinar 10 minutes before its start time so your computer can download and install the required software for you to participate.
Select Join Webinar or select the web address provided in step 1 of the reminder email. This will start the process of downloading and installing the software, if necessary.
If you need to install the software, follow the on-screen prompts until the installation is finished.
Once complete, you will see the presenter's screen and your interactive console.
NOTE If you continue to see the Waiting for Presenter screen, you may want to check the webinar’s start time, as all Student Success Webinars are scheduled for Mountain Standard Time. Keep in mind that Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings Time.
Enabling Webinar Sound for Windows 10
Recently, Windows 10 users have experienced some audio problems when attending Webinars. To ensure you can clearly hear the audio, we recommend checking your speaker properties.
Start by opening your Start Menu and selecting the gear for Settings.
Once in the Settings page, select System.
Select Sound from the left-hand side, then click on Device properties.
From the Enhancements tab, check the box labeled Disable all sound effects and select Ok to apply changes.
