The Meeting Password: learning

You do not need a telephone, just a computer headset to listen and speak during this webinar. Or use sound from your computer and type in the chat window.

Comment by Rita Oates on April 3, 2011 at 7:07am

I will post the login information and password here the morning of the webinar.

Please try to sign in 5-10 minutes early so your computer can run through a systems check and you can adjust the sound on your computer. If you sign up in advance at I will send the information to your email address.

Some of these sessions are VOIP, meaning you do NOT need a separate phone line, but you will need a computer headset to be able to hear, or your computer speakers.
