If you were one of the many people who attended our webinar Training an Invisible Audience: Delivering Effective Webinars, I'd like to thank you for being such an eager and inquisitive audience. I was struck by the many locations of the registrants (including more than 10 countries!), as well as the many reasons that people hold webinars, including parenting classes, genealogy courses, and student engagement.

Interacting and Gaming Sessions at Library 2.011

This week I had the pleasure of listening to several webinars that were part of the Library 2.011 worldwide virtual conference. Even before I get to the content, let me say that I was incredibly impressed at the amount of presenters contributing to this global event. My kudos goes out to Library 2.0 and The School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at San José State University for organizing this impressive virtual experience.

Online training tools and tips

TechSoup's GreenTech Initiative is hosting a month-long event on reducing travel without breaking the bank.
