webcast access

March 24, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Hi everyone. I have had CIDP for 18 months and work for the company Sonic Foundry that captured the sessions and providing the webcasts for the Symposium last November. Sorry to see some of you are having trouble logging in. in response to some comments/ questions:

1. you do not have to have twitter account to watch the webcasts. there is a twitter feed associated with the event so that people could have had conversation around it.

2. the webcast runs on any browser and you do need internet connection. if you can watch youtube videos you should have no problem watching these webcasts.

3. The page that opens up is your ‘player’ of the webcast, and it is built on silverlight technology. it is a one-time plug in to your computer. it is a fairly standard much like flash but does require a one time plug in

4. Why do you have to register? GBS/ CIDP is using the reports of who accessed/ when/ what sessions…to get a sense of what sessions are actually of most interest to people and how often. This will help them also make speaker/ topic decisions as the next symposium comes up

Personally I review the webcasts quite regularly; info i have forgotten, or go back to as a reminder. I have passed the links along to my neurologists who weren’t able to attend the symposium as well and they too have found it helpful.

If you still have problems accessing the webcasts, you can reach out to me directly at [email]pamelaw@sonicfoundry.com[/email] and i will do my best to help you. good luck!
