Notes: (Please share with students, judges, and coaches)

If you are having connection issues

1. Use a different browser (Chrome works best). Make sure you are in ONLY 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 use 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.

Empty Room: If you or one of your students is sitting ALONE AND ONTIME in an empty 8x8 room, something is wrong. Jump into the Help Room.

Judges Please Accept Your Ballot Immediately After Being Notified: Once you receive the email or text with your ballot, please accept the ballot. That way the tab room knows you will be there to judge the round.  

Observers:  In order to avoid "8x8 bombing" we cannot post the competition room URLs publicly.  Once emails (for the postings/rounds) go out, competitors and coaches can share their room-link with teammates, friends, and family.  Guests are welcome to observe. Observers should turn their mic off.
