We are very excited to have you all participating in our first Chicago-based, online workshop version of Love and Religion. We hope you get a lot out of the experience and we look forward to getting your feedback at the end.
Below is the information you will need to log in and join each week (Feb. 1, Feb. 8, and Feb. 15). Please note that the Feb. 22 session will be taking place in person with more information to follow.
Before the workshop starts on Wednesday, you should all receive an invitation from me to join the private group we’ve created specifically for this session on the InterfaithFamily.com Network. If you do not get this by Monday or have any problems logging into it, please let me know.
Once you have joined the group, please introduce yourselves on the private online discussion board on this. Also, please feel free to read through some of the recommended bookmarks that have been set up.
SETTING UP YOUR COMPUTER
We will be using software called MegaMeeting to run the video conference portion of the workshop. You will need to setup the software prior to the course starting. It should take no more than 10 minutes to install and test.
To get to the setup wizard visit the setup wizard and follow the setup directions on the screen.
If you have any problems getting this to work, please let me know.
