We’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the webinars we’ve done so far, and that’s inspired us to develop additional programs at a quicker pace than initially expected. We are pleased to announce, that beginning in April, we will be offering two webinars a month. One webinar will always focus on Braille Formats (coined Formats Friday), and the other will be a rotating topic. The Formats Friday webinars will take place on the first Friday of every month at 12:00 p.m Central Time. The time of the other webinars will vary by month.
As always, these free, 15-minute webinars are open to anyone who is interested. Because space in the workshops are limited to 25 people, we ask that if you have multiple people in a single workplace that you pair up and login with only one computer, saving room for those who work alone.
The next two webinars have been scheduled. Please see below for the schedule, topics, and information on how to join. No pre-registration is necessary.
