Welcome, to the Biker Bible Study Tutorial. It is our hope that you will find this web page, both informative and easy to follow.
The first thing that needs to be done, is to go to the Internet service's web site. The URL is:
When you get there, it will open up on its "Welcome" page. You will see a field entitled, "ENTER EMAIL". Be advised that the email you enter here, will become your "MEETING I.D." name. What this means is, if you don't fill out the 'PROFILE' page, all you will be know by, is your EMail account (e.g., emailname@E-mail.com) - not very flattering. Just sayin. So, be sure to fill out the 'Profile' information, so that we can address you properly.
Next in the process of establishing an account, fill in the "CREATE PASSWORD" field, just as you would normally do. (Tip: Write it down somewhere - just in case.) Now, when you click on the "Create My Free Account" button, that's when an App is formed and loaded onto your machine for later use. Once that's loaded, it would be a good time (if you choose to do so), to set up your 'Profile'. With that, you are pretty much ready to go.
Now here's the only part where it can get just a little confusing. So let's see if we can help make this easy to understand. Because a desktop device and a mobile device operate a little differently from each other, what we're going to do here is break things down by the basic machine you will be using as part of the Biker Bible Study (i.e., a computer such as a desktop or laptop, or a handheld mobile device such as a smart phone, a tablet, etc.).
Because this is a free Internet service, the operational functions may be a bit slow at times - especially at first. So please be patient, it will eventually get there.
So with that, this is how to configure the machine you have chosen to use, to join this interactive Bible study. Have fun:
Once you have established an account with FCC, this is how to "JOIN" a video conference call for the first time, using a desktop (or laptop) type computer.
Fire up the App ("Free Conference Call").
When the App comes up, click on the "Join" button.
On the next page, fill in the three fields:
• Your 'Meeting I.D. Name'.
• Your 'Email Address'.
• The 'Host's I.D. Name' (e.g., bikerbiblestudy).
Then once again, click the "Join" button.
On the next page, click on the "Join With Computer Audio" button.
On the final page, click on the Camera icon on the lower portion of the frame, so you can be seen. Now just wait for a few seconds, and you will be up in no time, and ready to go. Enjoy.
A MOBILE DEVICE
Once you have established an account with FCC, this is how to "JOIN" a video conference call for the first time, using a hand-held device (Smart Phone, Tablet, etc.).
Fire up the App ("Free Conference Call").
When it comes up, click on the "+ New" button.
When the insert window comes up, type the Meeting ID name of the host (e.g., bikerbiblestudy) in the "Meeting ID" field. Then click the "Join" button.
When the next window pops up, click on the "Call In Using Wi-Fi or Data" button.
Once you see the Host's screen, it may audibly ask you for your screen name. (You don't have to answer.) Just wait for a few seconds, and you should see the Host. When you do, tap anywhere on the screen, and you will see some control icons come up. Then tap on the Camera icon, so we can see you.
When someone joins your conversation, you should see your image in a video-in-video box in the corner of the main screen. Now just like before, wait for a few seconds, and you will be up and running. Enjoy.
Once you have participated in the Biker Bible Study on your mobile device for the first time, (unlike a computer), all you will need to do to join the next time, is open the FCC App. Then just tap the "Join" button next to the "Meeting ID" name (bikerbiblestudy). Now just wait for a few seconds, and there you are - up and running again - very simple, very easy. And how cool is that.
Once the Bible study is over, to exit out of the study is very simple - no matter what machine you use:
For a computer type machine, just click on the "Leave" icon on the lower portion of the screen. It will ask you to confirm. Click on the "Yes" button, and after a few seconds, you are done.
For a mobile device, just tap on the screen. Some icons will appear. When they do, tap on the "Leave" icon. It will ask you to confirm. Click on the "Yes" button, and after a few seconds, you are clear.
As a gentle reminder, the class starts at 1100 Eastern U.S. time every Sunday morning. Please be sure to take "Daylight Savings Time" (from about March to November), into consideration as well, when calculating your local start time.
There is one last thing we need to mention. As the Biker Bible Study grows, we would ask that you set up just a little bit earlier, so that the software can catch up, which will give everyone a chance to log on and be part of the study from the top. Thank you so very much in advance for both your understanding and your compliance. It is greatly appreciated.
With that, we are looking forward to seeing you real soon. Please be safe, and keep the rubber side down . . . . .
