If you have never used zoom, and you are MSU student, faculty or staff, you should first log onto https://msu.zoom.us to establish an MSU Zoom profile. If you have never used zoom, you should open the link above and follow the prompts to install Zoom client long before the seminar starts. If you plan to watch the KBS seminar series webcast periodically, it will be most convenient for you to save the link above as a bookmark or favorite. Note that the webcast is intended for viewing only and you should mute your camera and microphone if you have either.
To dial into the seminar from a meeting room with video conference hardware (like Nat. Sci. 105) you should dial “188.8.131.52##7202086207”. If the system is uncooperative in that type of dialing, dial 184.108.40.206 and when prompted, use the video conference remote control (i.e. Polycom remote) to dial the meeting number 7202086207 when prompted.
To remotely ask questions during the seminar notify KBS Computer Services Helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org) beforehand.
At KBS we make a practice of webcasting the KBS Seminar series. However, it is not a public presentation because copyrighted materials might be used, or proprietary information might be presented that is only for consumption at MSU.
At MSU’s Kellogg Biological Station green is more than a school color. You can help us be sustainability responsible for this event by:
- Carpool or ride your bike to the event.
- Traveling from a distance, watch the live stream instead.
- Reduce food waste by taking smaller portions and going back for seconds if needed.
Thank you for being part of this commitment!
