16 August 2021
Our online talks have been running since November 2020 and feature a talk by an expert in a particular field, followed by a 30-minute Q&A session during which participants can put questions to the speaker.
The talks are run via Zoom and it’s quick and easy to register and take part, as we show below.
How to register
You can see our programme of talks here - just click the link for whichever one you’re interested in and you’ll be taken to the Zoom registration page for further details.
Then simply enter your details as shown on the example below and click the ‘pay and register’ button. The £10 registration fee can be paid either by PayPal or, if you scroll further down, you can pay by debit or credit card. You’ll then receive a confirmation e-mail along with a link to access the event on the day.
What happens on the day?
On the day of the event you’ll receive a reminder e-mail from Zoom, sent to the e-mail address which you used to sign up. This will again include the link to sign in.
A few minutes before the start time, simply click on the link and you’ll be taken to a ‘waiting room’ before the talk starts.
The majority of our talks last for around 50 minutes and are chaired by Dr Allan Kennedy, History Scotland’s consultant editor. During the talk, you can use the chat facility to talk to the panel and other participants, whilst the Q&A facility allows you to pose questions to the speaker at any time. We answer as many questions as we can during the 30-minute Q&A.
Accessing the recording afterwards
Your ticket includes 7-day access to the video recording of the event and you’ll receive a link to access this within 24 hours of the event. Again, this will be sent to the e-mail address you registered with.
