** We are implementing a new viewing option for the ETD speaker series. We will be using the Virtual Graduate Life Center (vGLC), an environment where you can create an account and attend various events held at the Blacksburg campus from anywhere in the world that you have internet access. This is the first time we will be implementing this viewing option so we ask that you please take the time now to review the links below on downloading the appropriate software and how to create an account then log into the vGLC.
You must request an account no later than noon on Friday, October 14th in order to ensure your account is approved and your computer is set up to view the streaming program. A sample video will be playing in the vGLC to ensure you have all the settings and preferences correctly selected prior to the event. vGLC users should "arrive" no later than 6:45 the night of the event to ensure all settings are correct to view the event before it begins at 7pm. Questions regarding the vGLC should be directed to email@example.com.
