A few links for tonight's "Webinar" webinar

DearREADERS and webinar participants,

Here are some important links I'll be using during the "Setting Up a Webinar" DearMYRTLE's Workshop Webinar tonight. As usual, we will begin the "pre-webinar warm up" 15 minutes prior to the official recording the webinar.

Late registrants can sign up by going to: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/535092497 Attendance is limited to the first 100 computers that log in when the webinar begins at 9pm Eastern US, 8pm Central.

We'll use the example of setting up a webinar using the "GoToWebinar" service provided by Citrix, a fee-based service located at http://www.gotowebinar.com/ . The service supports Windows and Mac platforms.

501C Non-Profit Organizations will benefit from registering for GoToWebinar at a substantial discount. Today the TechSoup.org website is down for scheduled maintenance.



http://www.geneawebinars.com/ is the central place for genealogists to find info about online genealogy seminars (webinars). This site includes blog postings announcing upcoming events, a Google calendar, listing of webinar hosts and virtual presenters. Virtually all known genealogy webinar "givers" have been invited to belong to this organization. When your group is ready, please send Ol' Myrt your Gmail address, so you can have administrative rights to the calendar and author rights to the blog. I recommend setting up a special "webinars" gmail account for your society, so that you'll be able to pass on the access to future webinar coordinators fairly easily.



This is the link to the webinar survey form: http://blog.geneawebinars.com/2011/05/survey-your-feedback-on-webinars-needed.html

Your friend in genealogy.
