The online seminar, Dr. John Snow Speaks from Beyond the Grave, that was held on March 12, 2013, was a lot of fun and seemed to be well received by our audience. The entire two-hour seminar can be found at: http://bit.ly/14X5k6U
When you click on the link, you will be directed to Blackboard Collaborate, a Java applet will be downloaded to your computer and you will be asked it Blackboard Collaborate can have access to your computer. Click on “Allow” and you will be taken to the window that will show you the entire seminar. Be patient. It takes a few seconds to load. Click on the arrow on the bottom to start the talks. You can use the slider to jump ahead, and the vertical markers on the slider indicate when a new slide was shown. In order for the application to work, you MUST have the latest version of Java on your computer.
Later next week, the individual segments will be posted on the wastewatereducation.org YouTube Channel. Many thanks to Dendra Best for giving us access to all of these wonderful tools. Watch this space for a link and more information.
