Help for Teachers

1. GETTING HELP DURING CONVENTION
  • NEED HELP WITH ZOOM? Contact the Help Desk. Provide your name, email and phone number and they'll get back to you ASAP.
  • NEED HELP WITH SCHED OR ANYTHING ELSE? Email SABTC2021@gmail.com. 

2. HOW TO ATTEND CONVENTION SESSIONS
During convention:
  • Go to https://sabtc2021.sched.com and login. 
  • Click on your first session to open the session description. Near the top of the screen, under the session title you will see a yellow button with a ▷ icon that says "Open Zoom". Click on this button to open Zoom. These links will become visible 10 minutes before the session starts.
  • If your session is prerecorded, the yellow ▷ button might prompt you to "Open YouTube" or "Open Vimeo". In some cases, the recorded video might simply be embedded within the session window itself. To reduce server load and to keep the Sched site running smoothly, it's highly recommended that you click on any embedded videos so you watch them from YouTube or Vimeo rather than within a window in Sched.
  • Can't see the yellow ▷ button or can't press it to open Zoom? You're either not signed in or you haven't added this session to your schedule. If the session is full and you try to add it to your schedule, you'll be waitlisted. If you're on the waitlist, you won't be able to join the Zoom room unless people who have registered withdraw from the session. If you're first on the waitlist and someone frees up a spot for you, you'll be able to see the Open Zoom button. 

3. HOW TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE READY TO ZOOM
  • Update your Zoom software to the newest version possible! Go to https://zoom.us/download2 and download the newest “Zoom Client for Meetings”.
  • Test your internet connection by using the self-serve Zoom testing tool: https://zoom.us/test. When in the Zoom room, you'll be alone. To test your speakers and microphone, select the arrow beside the "MUTE" button (microphone icon) and select "Test Speaker & Microphone". Follow the steps provided.

4. NEED HELP USING SCHED?
5. EXPERIENCING SLOW / UNSTABLE INTERNET?
  • Turn off your camera. Streaming two-way video takes a lot of bandwidth. If people start to freeze or sound like they’re under the sea, turn your camera off.
  • Shut down the competition. Where are your kids/partners/roommates? Are they gaming or streaming video? Is your Roomba vacuuming? Turn off as many WIFI-stealing devices as you can.
  • Move your modem. Try to position your modem so it is away from walls and is located centrally in your home. If you can’t move your modem, move yourself so you are located more closely to it.
  • Change networks. Many modern modems create both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz networks. The 5.0 GHz network is usually faster, but the 2.4 GHz network has better range. Change which network you are connected to in your WIFI settings.
  • Connect via ethernet. Connect your device to one of the ethernet ports on the back of your modem using a blue or yellow cable. You may need an adaptor/dongle to connect to ethernet.

6. PRIZES GALORE!!!!!
