Please make sure your competitors and judges are able to login into their tabroom account and can access their email and account at your school.
All Asynchronous performance will have to be linked in tabroom.
Jason Paris from Cherokee has put together a tutorial if you, your students, and/or your judges need help creating accounts, using, and judging on tabroom and linking student performances.
Here is the link to his tutorial videos.
Please make sure you, your students, and your judges test NSDA campus on the network you are going to use to judge and compete by going to https://campus.
When your students and judges test NSDA campus, have them find where they can adjust the video quality. Judges and competitors should adjust the video quality to low or standard definition to help the connection.
Debaters must be prepared to share evidence.
An easy way to share evidence is to use google docs.
Students can create a doc, label it the tournament, make the link shareable and put the link in the chat, then copy and paste the evidence in the doc. so both judges and opponents can pull it up. Students can use the test page to practice sharing evidence.
