How to connect to Internet during presentation
by Jennifer CLARO - Saturday, 8 February 2014, 11:25 AM
 

Hi, I'm making a presentation at the Moot and I'd like to use the Internet during my presentation. According to the notes on room equipment, Macs sometimes have connection problems with the on-campus wifi. So, can I connect by LAN cable?

Thanks for your help,

Jennifer

People responsible for LAN cables and networks in OKIU are off duty this weekend. Odo-sensei will ask them the situation of your room assigned to give a talk on Monday. He will also check the situation of other rooms.

Jennifer,
   The IT staff here told me that there should be no problem with using Macs on the Wi-fi LAN.  I will be double-checking about signal strength today.
   An Internet connected teacher PC will also be available at the teacher's panel for backup. However, our security policy does not permit wired connections to the LAN. We will do our best to make sure the Wi-fi is available.

Hi Doug,

Thank you, that is good news. I will be using wifi with my Mac (not the backup PC) during the presentation, so a strong wifi connection is necessary.

Thank you again,

Jennifer

And Jennifer, I encourage you to bring a "plan B" in case the network connection fails for whatever reason. For example, I always try to bring screenshots of what I intend to show on the internet, and if the network is down at least I can show the screenshots and people have some idea of what I am trying to convey.

all the best

Thanks Gordon, I usually have a backup plan too, but this is a demo that requires an Internet connection. I will bring my ipad just in case. And if the backup PC in the room has a webcam, that would be useful too.
