Welcome to the Online Calvin Symposium on Worship!
Thank you for registering and joining us for this special event.

Are you experiencing technical issues?

Here are a few troubleshooting notes and tips:

  • You do not need a Zoom account to join the webinars; however, if you already have the Zoom program installed on your computer, you may be prompted to enter your Zoom account password when joining a webinar.
  • Most problems can be resolved by clearing cache AND cookies or using a different browser. Using a different browser is especially helpful when an extension in your main browser is causing an issue.
  • Older devices are more likely to experience obscure, hard-to-reproduce problems.
  • Old browsers are likely to cause bugs, especially Internet Explorer. Check if your browser is up-to-date by going to www.whatismybrowser.com.
  • Safari can be quirky. If you use a Mac, try to use Chrome or Firefox.
  • If none of the information above solves your problem, please reach out to us via email: worshipsymposium@calvin.edu.
