FAQs

Can we customize the registration and payment process to our specific needs?
Yes. You can brand the registration form and create as many discount and registration codes as you need. You can also customize the confirmation and follow-up messages you send out to registrants.
Are there ads on the registration pages or in the webinar room?
No. iCohere posts no ads anywhere in your site. But you can do so, if you wish.
How much does iCohere’s registration feature cost?
There’s no extra cost at all. The registration capability is included in your iCohere subscription. Payments are processed directly into your PayPal, Authhorize.net or other merchant account. iCohere adds no fees above what your merchant account charges.
Can presenters located in different parts of the world broadcast simultaneously?
They can. In fact, you can have as many presenters as you need, no matter where they are. Just as with television newscasts, there may be some slight time delay if your presenters are located in different countries.
What are the options for using video and audio?
WebEx provides an integrated audio and video experience. Up to six presenters or panelists can broadcast their video to attendees. All participants have the choice to join the audio portion of the webinar/meeting either through their computers or by dialing into the provided telephone conference line.
We want our webinars to be really interactive. What do you recommend?
We have all the standard features-- text chat, Q&Amode, hand raising, polls, shared annotation capability, etc. In addition, you can create breakout rooms for small sub-groups to discuss designated topics or just to interact with one another. iCohere’s WebEx implementation provides as interactive a webinar/meeting environment as you will find anywhere.
Some of our staff and many of the presenters we invite have never done a webinar before and don’t know what to do. How do they get trained?
We don’t charge to personally train your staff on any portion of our Unified Learning system, including WebEx. We can also provide additional training as needed to your presenters for a modest fee. Since you and your presenters will have access to training videos and documentation, additional personal training may not be necessary, but it is available.
Our presenters aren’t experienced with webcams. What do we do about that?
That’s a common concern. One of our optional services is a webinar support package that includes presenter support. We make sure their equipment works and do a run-through with them so they understand exactly what their role is. In addition, we provide live tech support during their webinar.
Can we make archives available for those who cannot attend or those who want to review the presentation?
Yes. You can record any of your sessions and you can make them available, either for free or for a fee, to anyone you wish. iCohere does not charge you a surcharge either for storage, nor for the number of people who view your archives.
Can I put the archives on my website?
Yes. You get a link to the streaming archive that you can use any way you want. You can make them available for free from your public website or to increase revenue, you can re-sell the archives to other audiences.
After a webinar, students have to take a test and fill out an evaluation form to earn continuing education units. How can we do that?
iCohere’s Unified Learning System includes assessments and survey capabilities, so you can push out a test and/or evaluation at the end of the webinar. The test is scored automatically and your attendees can receive a certificate for their attendance or credits.
I’m interested in small team meetings, as well as webinars. Can I do those?
Easily. All the capabilities of webinars are at your service for virtual team meetings. And by recording the meeting, people who can’t attend can catch up later.
Can we share handouts and other documents before, during and after a meeting?
Yes, with iCohere’s Unified Learning Management System, it’s simple to provide background documents before your meeting, pass out handouts during your session, and distribute follow-up materials afterwards. You simply upload your materials to our multimedia Resource Center, then distribute them from there whenever they are needed. You can also transfer files to attendees during the webinar.
How do we lift the webinar experience even higher?
We’ll help you design before and after activities to increase engagement and learning. You can use your webinars as a springboard for an ongoing learning community of practice, as part of a multi-day professional workshop, or in a multi-week online course or virtual conference! We’ll guide you through these and other options.

Case Studies

logo

The Library of Congress (LoC) is the largest library in the world, with more than 158 million items on approximately 838 miles of bookshelves. The collections include more than 36 million books and other print materials, 3.5 million recordings, 13.7 million photographs, 5.5 million maps, 6.7 million pieces of sheet music and 69 million manuscripts.

For decades, the Library of Congress catalogued all these items using a cataloguing standard called AACR (Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules). In June 2010, a new standard was released in part as a step toward creating a global standard that could be used in non-English language library systems.

Called RDA (Resource Description and Access) and adopted by the Library of Congress in 2012, this new standard presented LoC with the typical problem faced by any association or government agency that is experiencing growth and change: how do you train a widely dispersed core of professionals, some of whom work for your agency or organization, and many who do not, to bring them up-to-date with new guidelines and standards?

One unit within the Library of Congress that embraced this challenge is FEDLINK, the Federal Library and Information Network. As the formal support and training network for federal libraries in the use of online library/information services, FEDLINK’s training staff began developing a series of webinars to train both US-based and overseas librarians on both the principles of RDA and the RDA tools available through LoC’s Online Computer Library Center. FEDLINK uses iCohere’s webinar services for this on-going training and educational effort.
