How to join by web browser

You will see a 'join now' button and web link which will allow you to join using Vscene website.
Chrome and Firefox are recommended web browsers. Internet Explorer 11 and Safari will not work.
Just click the link or join button in the "upcoming events" list, and then enter your name and join. You do not need to login or enter a password.
For best layout, you can "dismiss" the orange recording information bar at the top of screen, and minimise the sidebar.
You can also maximise the presentation by double clicking on the "presentation" video. This will pop up the presentation video in a separate window.
The Icons on the bottom of the screen allow you to mute your microphone, video, and audio, hide your self-view, disconnect from the call, or end the call, start/stop sharing content, show/hide the collaborative Whiteboard, start/stop recording, change the layout of the video feeds, and turn full-screen on/off.
If you can find a suitable time, please do try to say "hello" at the start or end of the lecture, to let your lecturer know that you are attending remotely. At other times, please use headphones or mute your microphone to avoid background noise.
We recommend lecturers join using laptop or PC. Google Chrome on PC or Mac recommended when using screen sharing to present.
If you would like to present a lecture remotely, you may also use the same web link and method to join.
After joining from a PC or laptop, the web browser interface includes a 'Share' button which will allow you to share your screen if you would like to show slides or demonstrate from your computer. You may be prompted to install a browser plugin when you try this for the first time you try to share your screen.
Note if you are giving a presentation you will need to use the web browser method of joining from a laptop or desktop. Screen sharing is not yet available from the mobile app.
