How to Attend a Radcliffe Event on Zoom

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.


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.

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 synchronizations, and other high-bandwidth activities.
  • Go to and check your internet connection, audio, and video. (If the audio isn’t working, make sure your computer volume is turned up.)

If you are experiencing technical difficulties, we recommend you visit the Zoom Help Center for additional assistance.
