How can I take part in the Discussion Forum?

Screenshot of the webcasting system

To add to the discussion, just click on the empty bar on the bottom of the screen (as in the screenshot above). Type your comment and press ENTER to submit this. You also use this bar to submit commands to enable you to leave the webcast or change "rooms". Select the link for instructions on how to change rooms.

This short paragraph is the maximum that you can type in any one message. The chat room is not 'threaded', i.e. all comments just appear in the discussion area in the order they are submitted, so take care in responding to a previous comment. It is a good idea to try to make it clear who you are responding to in your comment.

For example, "John Smith makes a good point but I think we should also consider X and Y" rather than "I agree but we should also consider X and Y".
