== Instructions for dial-in and during the session ==

For Education Committee meetings we use the conference bridge service
available to IAOA, which for participants basically means to make a
(free) Skype call to a specific Skype contact and enter a PIN number in
order to join the respective conference call (U.S. landline numbers are
available as an alternative to Skype, but may be charged).

In addition, we use a free and public chatroom during the session as a
second communication channel, where notes can be taken visibly for
everyone and questions or comments may be stated in parallel to the oral 

=== Dial-in ===

* via phone (US numbers only):
   ** main nbr:   +1 (425) 440-5100 ... (long distance cost may apply)
   ** backup nbr: +1 (315) 401-3279
   ** when prompted enter Conference ID: 843758#

* via Skype:    join.conference
   (i.e. make a skype call to the contact with skypeID="join.conference")
   ** generally free-of-charge, when connecting from your computer
   ** when prompted enter Conference ID: 843758#

   ** Unfamiliar with how to do this on Skype?
      Add the contact "join.conference" to your skype contact list
      first. To participate in the teleconference, make a Skype call to
      "join.conference", then open the dial pad (see the subsequent
      platform-specific instructions) and enter the
      Conference ID: 843758# when prompted.
   ** Can't find Skype Dial pad? ...
    *** for Windows Skype users:
        it's under the "Call" dropdown menu as "Show Dial pad"
    *** for Linux Skype users: please note that the dial-pad is only
        available on v4.1 (or later; or on the earlier Skype versions
        2.x,) if the dialpad button is not shown in the call window you
        need to press the "d" hotkey to enable it.
    *** In some cases, simply typing the number on your keyboard or
        number pad may work, as well.

* In-session chat-room url and instructions:
   (see meeting-specific call details above for the )

   ** Once you got access to the page, click on the "settings" button,
      and identify yourself (by modifying the Name field from "anonymous"
      to your real name, like "JaneDoe").
   ** You can indicate that you want to ask a question verbally by
      clicking on the "hand" button, and wait for the moderator to call
      on you; or, type and send your question into the chat window at the
      bottom of the screen.
   ** You can also use a jabber/xmpp client (e.g. gtalk) to join this
      chatroom. Just add the room as a buddy - (in our case here)
      iaoa_edu_20151007 at soaphub.org ... (handy for mobile devices!)

=== During the session ===

* To un-mute, press "*7" ... To mute, press "*6"
   (please mute your phone if you are in a noisy surrounding or if you
    are introducing noise, echoes, etc. into the conference line.)
* If you want to speak or have questions or remarks to make while
   another person speaks, please raise your hand (virtually) by clicking
   on the "hand button" (lower right) on the chat session page. You may
   speak when acknowledged by the session moderator (possibly you need
   to press "*7" on your phone to un-mute). (Please remember to click on
   the "hand button" again (to lower your hand) and possibly press "*6"
   on your phone to mute yourself after you are done with speaking.)
