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.  In order to avoid "8x8 bombing," we cannot post the room URLs publicly. Tab Staff can also share a room with you.

 

Observers- Once emails (postings/rounds) go out, students/coaches can share their room-link with teammates.  Observers are welcome to observe.  Mics off, please. In order to avoid "8x8 bombing," we cannot post the room URLs publicly. Tab Staff can also share a room with you.

 

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.
