Pat Dwyer says:
Can I register after series starts? Are the recordings just audio or video?
Yes you can register for one after the series starts. They are audio with the screen showing the powerpoint slides, handout, or webpage, whichever is appropriate. It’s not just my voice.
Denise C says:
How soon will the recordings be available?
Usually a day or two after the session.
Wait, 8 times 4 is 32. So the fifth webinar isn’t complimentary, it costs $3. How about including the one on planning a research trip in the $35 package?
I can do that Emily. I’ll send a link to the “planning a research trip” one to anyone who registered for the $35 package.
