Do I need to watch the webinar to do the activities?
We recommend that you watch the webinars live where possible, as the industry experts and professionals will be able to give you insights that you may wish to use for the activity. However, for most programmes, you should be able to complete the activities and quizzes with the information that has been provided too.
What software do you use for the live talks?
We use a tool called BigMarker & YouTube Live for our live talks that won’t require you to download anything.
