How do I practice a webinar?

    Organizers can start an event in practice mode before actually starting the live session. This allows you to run through the event with other panelists and organizers to perfect it without attendees. If you practice an event up until its scheduled start time, you can easily transition from practice mode into live broadcast mode.

    Co-organizers and panelists can join the practice session as they would the regularly scheduled webinar – select the Join link in the webinar email.
    Note: If you record the webinar while in practice mode, it will process as it normally does and appear in your Video Library after you end the session.
