Every other week (or so) I host a free ed-tech webinar. These webinars can be viewed in two ways:
- Live - You can watch the webinar live, which will give you the ability to submit questions and share ideas.
- Recorded - Each webinar is recorded and can be viewed later.
Participants can earn a certificate of completion for one contact hour by watching the webinar (live or recorded) and then completing an online quiz covering the session content.
Unless otherwise noted, the webinars run from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm (EST)
