Look Over These Guideshttps://forensicstournament.net/online


If you are having Connection Issues

1. Use a different browser (Firefox and Chrome work best).  Make sure you are in ONE room at a time.

2. Reboot your computer

3. Make sure your mic, camera, and speaker settings are operational

4. If you are using a tablet or phone us the 8x8meet APP instead of a browser

5. Test your internet.  You need a minimum of 6mbps. https://www.speedtest.net

6.  Seek help in the help room


Tablet Users may want to use the "8x8 Meet" App.  When possible, PC/Laptops will be more effective than tablets and phones. However, if you have unstable internet at any point the "8x8 Meet" App is a great alternative.

"POSTINGS" are left of here.  Room and Ballot Links will be emailed to judges, students, and coaches 15 minutes before rounds. 


Private Messages- Students, please do not PM with each other in the 8x8 rooms during speeches.


Email-v-Text-- We have found that it's better to mark each of your judges and students as receiving their ballots through email instead of text.  You can make these choices on your student roster and judge roster.


Empty Room- If you or one of your students is sitting ALONE AND ONTIME in an empty 8 x 8 room something is wrong. Jump into the help room.
