Preparing for live online examinations

Following on from our session on Recorded Exams on Wednesday 6 October, we continue our exploration of new digital options for taking instrumental/vocal exams.

In this free webinar, Ivor Flint explains the process for carrying out live-streamed online exams, looking at everything from booking exam slots and preparing your students, through to what equipment to use and pre-exam checks to mitigate against technical issues.
