Some tips and things we learned from our Awards Presentations

  • Please be mindful of the sound quality of your environment.  If you are in a large and/or echoing room your speakers will cause some unpleasant feedback.   It is generally better experience to call in from a smaller room, and to keep your microphone on Mute until you wish to speak, to avoid background noise
  • Please sign in a few minutes ahead of time so we can get things moving quickly and efficiently.
  1. We’re using the platform “Microsoft Teams”.   You may join online through your browser, or you may download the Teams meeting software.   We’ve tested both.    You’ll be prompted to select one of those methods when you click the link to the meeting. There’s even an app for your phone too if you prefer.
  2. When you sign in you’ll be shown a field in which to type your name.  Please include your newspaper name too, so other participants will know where you are from.
  3. When the meeting begins you’ll have a tool bar near the bottom of the window. From there you can turn on/off your camera and microphone. Please mute your microphone if you are not speaking, it helps avoid background noise.  
  4. In that same tool bar, locate the Chat button.  Feel free to chat during the presentation.
