Webinars has transformed the way in which we do business and exchange information across the country. Not only can you learn virtually, but if you missed any session, or need a refresher, you are able to go back into the “Archives.”

Have you, or your organization, taken part in any of the recent Workforce3One learning opportunities?

-Registered Apprenticeship and Green: Building the New Economy, 05/25/2010

-WIRED TAT Webinar Series: Jobs and Career Ladders for the Hard to Serve, 06/10/2010

-Effective Partnerships between the Public Workforce System and Libraries, 07/19/10

-AHA! Allied Health Access: How to Develop Programs for Youth in Allied Health Careers,

Why, or why not?

Webinars are great- however, depending on what the topis is, many times the session fills up. I prefer to be on a webinar live and in real time-- I am not sure I enjoy viewing archived webinar unless required

I love webinars. I suggested a webinar for new youth grantees to learn about financial reporting responsibilities and scheduled a Q & A session for later. I will be conducting the Q & A today. I’ll let you know how it worked out after the session.

We are beginning to actively participate in webinars. As a "stand-up trainer" I find it challenging to engage people that I can't see. So, we have worked to incorporate polling questions to "read" the audience and determine what information is interesting to them and fits with their learning needs.

Can't wait to hear Mallery's results from the Q&A. One collaborative effort between a university and an area high school is utilizing this technology to engage high school students to build presentation skills that will enhance their college success and job opportunities.
