Get Ready for 'Click Meeting' and the DSIL Virtual Classroom Sessions

Welcome to the guide for Virtual Classroom participants. We encourage you to have an account with Click to join any of the DSIL VC Sessions. Alternatively, you can join as a guest with a meeting ID and password; this is available to all registered participants at pax.dsilglobal.com. To set up your free WebEx account, please set aside about 5-10 minutes.

About the free account - ‘Sign In’ will lead you to create an account—the ONLY way to access the live virtual classroom recordings after the live meeting ends. Meeting, recordings will be available the following day in your WebEx Account.

Join DSIL Virtual Classroom Sessions in 4 Steps!

Step 1: Enter VC Session 'Meeting Number' + Password

Go to https://www.webex.com/login/attend-a-meeting ; you will need to enter the meeting number sent to you in the email invitation (24 hours in advance of each session) and listed on the participant password protected website (pax.dsilglobal.com).

Step 2: Enter your contact details (guest or account)

You will need to share you name and email address before you join the meeting space. If you have already signed up, you can login to gain access.

Step 3: Download and Install WebEx Add Ons

The first time you participate in a WebEx meeting on a computer, you may be asked to download and install the WebEx Add-On. This will help WebEx run efficiently on your computer. Note that this can take up to 5 minutes depending on internet connection speed.

Step 4: Join Virtual Classroom 'Meeting' and Set Up Audio

Set up your Audio preferences before the meeting begins. Connect with your computer rather than your phone to view the lecture. Next, set your personal microphone on mute. This will eliminate background noise from keyboards.

Helpful Hints!

  • In the main meeting screen area, you can communicate with fellow participants and lecturers in the chat box at the bottom of the screen.
  • Lecturers can use the whiteboard, share files, and speak to you live via video feed.
  • When the meeting has ended you can leave the meeting by clicking the ‘Leave Meeting’ button at the bottom center of the screen.
  • Always double check that your microphone is on MUTE.
