Webinar Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule a webinar?
To schedule a webinar, simply complete the Google Form. We have a variety of scientists who specialize in probeware, and to schedule the correct choice for your school, a minimum notice of two weeks is required.
How long does a webinar take?
Webinars take approximately one hour.
What can be covered in the Webinar?
In approximately one hour, a Vernier specialist can typically train on 1–2 platforms (computer, iPad, Chromebook, LabQuest 2, etc.) along with 2–3 sensors of your choosing. Need more extensive training? Just let us know, and we can discuss options.
Do I need to have the equipment with me during the webinar?
Yes. We find that teachers learn best if they have the equipment in front of them during the training.
Do you offer technology previews along with a webinar?
If you want to try new Vernier technology, we offer a 30-day preview (or longer, if needed) for most of our products. To set up a preview prior to your webinar training, you can contact Venier Technical Support at support@vernier.com or 1-888-837-6437.
Does my webinar have to focus on specific lab activities?
We personalize our webinars to fit your needs. Most of the time, we focus on basic use of Vernier technology integrated with the platform(s) your students are using. We can also train on specific lab activities of your choosing and advise teachers how to meet curriculum goals such as implementing AP, IB, or NGSS.
What are the expected outcomes from my training session?
Educators will be proficient on the basics of using probeware: connecting sensors, producing real-time graphs, and analyzing sensor data. Science lessons are more effective and engaging by adding the use of real-time graphing tools. We can cover common lab activities that are enhanced by the addition of probeware and explore new options made possible by the use of sensors.
How many instructors can I have present during the webinar?
Our webinars can accommodate up to about 16 instructors. If you need training for just yourself, you can always connect instantly with a support specialist by email at support@vernier.com or by phone at 1-888-837-6437.
How much does a webinar cost?
Webinars are free!
What are my responsibilities, and what will I need to have?

At your school, you will need the following equipment:

  • Your probeware (or the sensors you have on a preview basis)
  • An internet-connected computer that is capable of connecting to Webex (You are not required to download anything, but you may need permission from your IT department to connect in this way.)
  • A projector (for groups of four or more)
  • A speakerphone (preferred), or microphone and speakers connected to your computer

You will need to schedule both the training session and a test call

What is a test call and why do I need one?

One to two days before the webinar, we need to conduct a test call to make sure your phone, network, computer, etc. will connect well with ours. This is a bit like a dress rehearsal for the equipment and will save everyone time and potential frustration on the day of the webinar.

For the test call, it is best if all of the following are true:

  • You are in the room you will be using for the real session.
  • You are using the same audio connection that you will use for the webinar (speakerphone or computer).
  • You are using the same computer that you will use and it is connected to your network in the same way it will be for the webinar.
  • You have administrator access to the computer in case we need permission to install the WebEx plugin.
