"I was really nervous how to participate in a webinar, but the instructions were very clear and I got connected first time! I even managed to join in the chat room and ask my question. It was so convenient to hear an excellent speaker, live, from my own desk. Thanks for introducing me to technology that delivers" - Webinar participant, 'Approaches to Education in Museums.'
