Lifelong learning is so important. It keeps us young, exercises our brains, and gives us endless topics of conversation for family dinners, quilt guild, and overlong grocery store lines. That’s why I’m excited to tell you about 4 new web seminars that we’re hosting in January 2015!
What’s a web seminar, you ask? It’s a really fun way to learn new things online and at your own convenience and pace. A one-hour live event is held in which a presenter narrates slides and/or video (you see this on your computer screen) and you can interact by asking questions in real time, and the whole thing is also recorded so you can re-watch and enjoy as you like for an entire year. It’s easy to register, connect to the event, and access the archived presentation and any other materials that go along with it.
But I digress! This January’s web seminar offerings are pretty mind-blowing in terms of topics, presenters, and potential for changing your life. I hope you’ll click the photos below and read the details of each…these are really great learning opportunities at a VERY affordable price. Lifelong learners, rejoice! Here are your January 2015 web seminars:
