Now more than ever, we are using web-based technologies to share information and make presentations. Taking your presentation skills from in-person to online requires a unique skill set. Basic public speaking skills are important, but you want to make sure those skills effectively transfer to an online presentation that creates interest, engages your audience and has a lasting impact.

This session will address the nature and types of online presentations and basic guidelines to strengthen your online presenting, both for recordings and for real-time presentations. The class experience includes small group exercises, class discussion and impromptu online presentations.

General Admission: $60**
Class size is limited to 30.
