The above link is for a repeat of the Blueprints and Templates session.  Could you please update?

I'm waiting for this webinar to begin?? Do I have the wrong Zoom link?

Thank you so much and yet it is now just spinning for me as well!

Community Member

I didn't get a link at all. 

I registered but the form said the enrollment was capped out at 250 participants.

Community Participant

I have a Zoom link but it is still just "waiting for the host to start the webinar" and it says the topic.


Hi @riddlel92 - That is correct. We learned that the team reached its capacity before the event began, and with 250 attendees signed up, they were unable to send additional invites. We will improve the communication of the number of remaining seats so it's clearer for future webinars.

We'll wait and see I guess!

Greetings, all.  
My sincerest apologies to all of you that took time out of your busy day to attend this event and it never opened up 😞 
We're working internally to uncover what happened and we'll try to get this rescheduled.

Community Team

Hello Everyone! ️ We're grateful for your enthusiastic response to today's webinar. The Learning Services Team set a limit of 250 attendees, and for those who signed up via the Google Form, you should have received a personalized Zoom link tailored for today's event. 

However, it seems there was a little mix-up along the way. Unfortunately, a URL connected to a similar session offered at other times found its way into circulation. We understand how disappointing this might be, but please know that your interest and eagerness mean the world to us. We're working diligently to ensure that such mishaps don't happen again, and we will do our best to clearly communicate when a session no longer has seats available. We're here to support you every step of the way, and we appreciate your understanding and patience. Keep watching the Instructure Live calendar for more exciting opportunities to learn together.

So, for those who did register and had the correct link, but could not get in because others were able to attend because they gained access, was it recorded so that we can watch it?  I had the spinning wheel of death and was disappointed that I registered and then could not access the webinar.
