Meeting Description:

There are many online conferencing tools available that allow you to collaborate, create engaging conference calls, record phone interviews, or conduct online trainings and demonstrations. Kami Griffiths will interview Laura Quinn, from Idealware, to help you understand what these tools do, how you can use them to help your organization, and the variety of software options that exist.

This multi-media session includes an expert-led exploration of some tools available, and a chance for you to ask questions to ensure that you will leave ready to implement what you have learned. A TechSoup Stock representative will present information on how to use the TechSoup website and the process for requesting donated products.
