for new members we send them a welcome message to join the community and start using the service. Below you’ll find the current message; feel free to use/reuse and make suggestions for improvement. Possibly we should have better recommendations on browsers and link to a thread where the most current info can be found?
Thanks for joining Meet.coop
I have now added you as a user on Meet.coop and you should have received an email with instructions to Join “Greenlight” which will enable you to access your BigBlueButton account. NB the invite link is only valid for 24 hours so if you do not click on it within this time it will not work - please reply to this email if you need a new link.
If you’re new to BigBlueButton, please check the guides plus there are also some very useful written instructions here:
If you have any questions please see the FAQ thread and feel free to ask any questions and add feedback here. And of course, as new member, we kindly invite you to present yourself in the Welcome thread.
For better results, make sure your meeting attendees use a recent version of Firefox / Chrome, have headphones and mute when not speaking. If possible use a desktop/laptop computer rather than a tablet, and a tablet rather than a mobile phone. Make sure to have good network connectivity and disable other network intensive apps/services.
You (as Moderator or Presenter) can easily mute people by clicking on their names above the videos. If anyone is not muted and has background noise it can cause issues with sound quality for others but, once people get used to the required behaviour, it does work really well.
