  • Please make sure competitors also check their spam folders for postings.
  • The postings will contain their room link, and will also be sent 10 minutes before the round.

For the IE portion of the tournament:

  • Competitors who are double entered will receive links to both of their rooms. To sign in, please have competitors type their name in the chat to mirror signing into a classroom, before heading to their other round.
  • Please inform competitors to make sure they enter rooms with muted microphones, as to not interrupt another speaker.

KEY POINTS

  • To prepare your competitors and judges for this new online format, please see the guides available on the online resources page: https://forensicstournament.net/online 
  • Because this is an online tournament, slow internet speeds can cause issues for speakers, judges, and tournament staff. Test your internet speed on https://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ Anything less than 6 mbps upload/download will cause video/audio problems.
  • We strongly recommend each school has judges on standby who are familiar with internet tournaments in case there are internet issues for their originally registered judges.
  • The tournament will use synchronous video conferencing. Please see the Best Practices section of this invite for tips on how to effectively use the platform.
  • The awards ceremony will be live-streamed on YouTube each day.
