After a hectic Fall schedule of webinars, things are slowing down a bit for the holiday season. Here in America, Thanksgiving is upon us this week. People of the Jewish faith are also celebrating Hanukkah. And of course Christmas is just around the corner, along with Kwanzaa, Hogmanay, Saturnalia, and Pancha Ganapati.
If you have some free time on your hands, why not take advantage of the chance to learn a little more about webinars?
I just spoke to Bob Hanson and Roger Rosenquist, who are promoting an in-depth multi-part training program called Webinar University. It will feature a number of live and recorded modules delivered via the web. They are limiting the class size to only 10 participants, giving each person the ability to interact fully with the instructors. And payment for the course also gives you two hours of personal consulting on your own webinar program.
You can also get access to a series of prerecorded seminars on different webinar topics as part of ON24's free Webinar Academy. You can choose from tracks on production, promotion, and presentation.
And I continue to appear as a guest speaker with various free educational topics throughout the year. Coming up in the next couple of weeks you can attend sessions sponsored by Onstream Media and Citrix Online.
On Tuesday, December 3 I will give Tips for Selecting a Webinar/Webcast Vendor. This is an overview on things to think about when comparing different vendors or constructing a more formal RFP. Although it is sponsored by Onstream Media, they are allowing me to remain independent and objective with my content… So I won't be trying to sell you on their products (or anyone else's). The time is most convenient for people in US/Canadian/Latin American time zones (2pm New York time).
If you are in the Asia Pacific part of the world, mark your calendar for December 11. I'll be sponsored by Citrix Australia in a demonstration of best practices for appearing on live video in a webcast. Click here to register for a 1pm Sydney start time.
