Best Practices: Host and Presenter

Best Practices: Host & Presenter


  1. No wireless, no exceptions
  2. Shut down Email/IM and any programs NOT being used for the presentation.
  3. Shut down any VPN's and connect directly to the internet
  4. Do not use a photograph for a Connect Room background.  Solid color backgrounds with simple logos work best
  5. Have programs that you are screen-sharing open to the appropriate window and ready to demonstrate --avoid launching and logging into programs while screen sharing.
  6. Turn off computer 'sleep' especially if a re-log in is required
  7. If you are sharing your screen, remove any photo backgrounds on your computer desktop.  This will help improve screen sharing capabilities.
