HOW IT WORKS
The webinars will all be run using ADOBE Connect which provides a virtual classroom for each session. In order to participate all you need is a computer with a key board and a connection to the internet. A set of headphones would be useful to enable you to help you hear without any background noise but they are not essential. You will be expected to participate in the session by responding to questions and activities using your key board.
