Before you join a Pratt Virtual Program: 

*Choose a quiet, well-lit place to sit. Make yourself comfortable, and if you choose to participate with a camera, make sure we can see your face! 
*Test your audio before you begin. Headphones can help! 
*Keep your microphone on mute to minimize background noise
*If you need to get up and move around, or do something unrelated to the program, turn your camera off to minimize distractions for other attendees.  
*Pay attention to directions from presenters and facilitators.
*The first few minutes will be dedicated to troubleshooting.
