Webinars are used widely in some industries but still reasonably rare in education. We are great at giving away free online lessons such as through massive open online courses (MOOCs) but don’t often use these skills to promote courses.
Using platforms that universities already subscribe to such as Adobe Connect, we can begin to host bite sized chunks of learning content to engage prospective students, current students and alumni. This is not the place just to re-purpose a lecture, it should be interactive with questions asked of the audience and questions answered by multiple facilitators.
Our Principal Dr Mark Tayar will be hosting a webinar on March 15, 2017 for the Association for Tertiary Education Management (ATEM). Check back here for a link.
