FAQ for Make Ready Live Online Webinar
Panteao’s Live Online webinars bring you content directly from the Panteao instructors. The webinars cover specific topics from the instructors and give you the chance to not only learn from them, but to also interact with them directly. Below are answers to some of the frequently asked questions regarding the Panteao webinars:
What should I expect from the Live Online webinar?
The instructor will present his or her subject matter during the webinar and you will have the opportunity to ask questions of the instructor. We recommend that you prepare for the webinar 15-30 minutes prior to the start of the webinar. That will give you a chance to login and verify everything is working and your audio is functioning. If the instructor has a printout associated with the course, this is the time to make sure you have it handy. You should also have a pen and paper ready for any notes you may wish to take.
What platform is used for the webinar and will it work with my computer?
Panteao’s Live Online webinar programs use the Adobe Connect platform. This platform is easy to use and you don’t need to install any software. Simply connect to your webinar via the link provided to you by Panteao and it opens in your browser.
Can I test my connection before I sign up for a webinar?

What is the audio technology used for the webinars?
Participants attend through their computer’s speakers using VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). There is no phone number to dial. You participate in the webinar through your computer system only. If you experience difficulty hearing the instructor during the webinar, adjust your computer’s volume and verify your sound/speakers are turned on, or that your headset is properly plugged in. If necessary, disconnect and reconnect (leave and re-enter the Adobe Connect room) as this can very often fix any audio glitches. If you still encounter audio issues, please use the chat function in Adobe Connect to request help from the session producer.
Can I use the microphone that comes built-in to the webcam?
It’s recommended that you do not use the built-in microphone and instead, use a separate microphone. A combination microphone headset is a good option for a webinar.
Can I use the built in camera that is on my computer?
Yes you can. However, the quality of the image will be better if you use a separate aftermarket webcam. If you do use an external webcam that is plugged into your computer, be sure to verify which webcam is in use prior to the webinar starting. You can choose the webcam from the webinar classroom.
What if I have a problem accessing a webinar I sign up for?
The first thing we suggest you do is close any programs that you have open and running in the background that you don’t need during the webinar. Make sure that your computer’s firewall settings are not blocking your access. Then copy and paste the link for the webinar into a new internet browser (ie. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari). If you still cannot access the webinar, please call us at 803-978-2629.
What should I do prior to the start of the Live Online webinar?
The last thing you want is to be distracted or interrupted during the webinar. Here are some tips to maximize your webinar experience:
Be sure to turn off your emails, IM tools, and any programs running that may be a distraction to you.
Set your phone to silent mode or better yet, turn it off all together.
Try to reduce or eliminate any background noise. Things like the television, radio, pets, family members or co-workers can distract you from the webinar. If necessary, go to a room where you will not be disturbed.
Noise reducing headsets and microphone are tools you should consider for your webinar.
What should I do during the Live Online webinar?
First and foremost, enjoy the webinar. Be prepared to take notes. If you have a question for the instructor, be sure to ask. Use the raise your hand button to ask a question.
If you have to step away from the computer for some reason, use the step away/step in button.
