Watch Legacy Webinars on the Go!

You don't have to be tied to your computer to watch a legacy webinar! You can easily watch LIVE on the go if you have a smart phone or tablet.

You'll need to go to first and register for a free webinar.

What you'll need to do to get started is to go to either the Apple or Android App Store depending on whether you are using an Apple or Android device. Then download the FREE GoToWebinar app. It looks like this:


Once you open the app you will see this screen:


In the white box enter the webinar id number that you will find in the confirmation email of your webinar registration. Then click the JOIN link in the blue box.

Next you will see the title page for the webinar. You may need to fill in registration info again toward the bottom if you registered after the webinar started.


A notice will let you know that you've been muted. Click that box for more information.



Here are the microphone options:


Tilt your phone or tablet to the horizontal position to see the webinar in a larger screen mode:


When you want to leave the GoToWebinar app, tap the box with the left pointing arrow in the top left of your screen. Then press Leave Webinar on the bottom of the screen when it appears.


At the end fill out the survey and let us know how you enjoyed the webinar!


Just remember that watching a webinar on your mobile device can use up your data plan quickly if you are not on wifi. If you are in public, try to login into a local free wifi network.

Give it a try and let me know if you have any questions.

Will we be able to use this App to watch Webinars from the library in the future. I often watch on the iPad using a Web Browser and it's certainly not athe perfect solution.

I learned about this a while back when my desktop went kapooey just after I logged in to Webinar. I ran to get my tablet, hoping GotoWebinar was available. It was. I quickly downloaded it, opened the email from my tab app, and clicked in. To my astonishment, I got in just as the webinar started! I've watched on my tab a few times when away from home if I was where I could get wi-fi. It's great.
