Participant FAQs

There is no fee to participate in webinars for NISOD members. Visit member benefits for information about additional NISOD benefits.
To participate in a webinar, you will need a computer with speakers and an internet connection. No special software download is required. It is strongly encouraged that webinar participants be on a hard-wired internet connection rather than a wireless internet connection.
Past sessions are available in our webinar archive for later viewing by NISOD members.
Only one person can login for each registration, so you need to register once for each computer or location. If you plan to watch the session from a conference room with a group of your colleagues, you will only need to register once. The following steps are recommended for group webinar viewings:

  • One person from the group should serve as the “site coordinator,” register themselves for the webinar, and coordinate the viewing at their institution.
  • On the day of the webinar, the site coordinator should provide a sign-in sheet for participants to sign in case anyone wishes to receive confirmation from NISOD that they participated in the webinar.
  • The site coordinator should forward the link to the post-webinar survey and other important information to all group participants.

To receive a certificate of completion for the NISOD webinar, you must register and login to the live presentation. Email Nicole Novelli at Nicole@nisod.org if you do not receive your certificate. Items of note: We are not a certifying agency. We will not be able to provide a certificate of completion for the viewing of archived webinars. 

Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive an email approximately 24 hours prior to the webinar with information about how to access the webinar. On the day and time of the webinar, log into the URL provided in the email. Please use your first and last names when logging in.
No, not unless they include a photo in their presentation, But, you will hear the presenter in real time while you participate in his or her presentation.
Participants can interact with the facilitator and other participants through the chat feature available during the webinar. The facilitator will answer as many questions during the webinar as time allows or may follow up with participants after the webinar.
Please contact Nicole Novelli at nicole@nisod.org or (512) 471-7545 for assistance on the day of the webinar.
