Follow-up:
Thanks to Jannifer Wolfgramm for hosting and Randy Thomas for bringing extra iPads to the iPod/iPad training yesterday. It was a great success. I am not sure of the final count but I think it was about 15 people who were able to attend. Thanks to Cherie for bringing snacks and more importantly screening two different webinars and showing the best of each. We also had a great discussion before, during and after the webinar. There was great interest in having another training this summer.

FAQs About Webinars
What is a webinar? It is a web-based seminar, accessed through a computer with Internet access.

What if I have never participated in a webinar? No problem! For these sessions, you will not even need a computer! We will watch the webinar together from one projected computer.
