The Radcliffe Institute is pleased to present a series of virtual events to our audiences via Zoom.
Please note, all virtual events require registration. Scroll down to find complete instructions for how to attend a Radcliffe webinar.
- Create a Zoom account. Members of the Harvard community who have not yet set up their Zoom account can follow the instructions here. Attendees without a Zoom account can set up a free account at zoom.us. Please make sure that the e-mail you use to register is the same e-mail connected to your Zoom account.
- Register to attend the webinar on our events webpage. Once registered, you will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail that contains an individualized link and password to join the webinar via Zoom. This link cannot be shared or forwarded as each link is designed for single access only.
Note that audio and video for attendees are automatically disabled during the webinar.
Radcliffe webinars with sold-out registration will also be livestreamed to the Radcliffe Institute’s YouTube page. Please know that the chat feature on the YouTube page will be disabled. Only viewers who are attending the lecture via Zoom will be able to submit questions for the Q and A.
Improving Your Zoom Connection
- Use the best Internet connection you can. Wired connections are better than wireless (Wi-Fi or cellular) connections. Wi-Fi connections are better than cellular (3G/4G/LTE) connections. Join Zoom from a location where you can use fast, reliable Internet connection. If joining using a Wi-Fi connection, generally this location should be as close to the wireless router as possible.
- Close other, unneeded applications on your computer. Zoom meetings can demand significant memory and processing power from your computer. Closing applications you do not need during the session will help Zoom run better.
- Don't start other bandwidth-intensive activities just before, or during, a Zoom meeting. Avoid sizable downloading/loading, streaming video (Hulu, Netflix, YouTube), file syncronizations, and other high-bandwidth activities.
- Go to https://zoom.us/test and check your internet connection, audio, and video. (If the audio isn’t working, make sure your computer volume is turned up.)
