What is a "LIVE, INTERACTIVE” webinar??
It is as close as you get to face-to-face without being in the same room!  Group size is limited and participants have live cameras/audio so they can ask questions, join in discussions and participate in small group activities. Tools used include chat box, polls and break-out rooms.  Break-out rooms consist of 2-8 participants in a cyber ‘conference room’ where they can complete a task together before returning to the larger group.  Questions?  Contact Karen Rucker at or call 717-314-8368.
