Webinar iconThis year we’re offering a series of live webinars, led by a Microsoft subject matter expert, on a range of Microsoft products and education services. There’s the Microsoft Mondays, which are webinars for university/TAFE lecturers, Tech Tuesdays for school IT managers, and a range of other technical webinars which are not specifically designed to focus on education (attendees will be from a wide range of industries) but are ideal for an opportunity to spend some time looking deeply into a particular leading-edge Microsoft technology.

Each week I’ll highlight the webcasts coming up soon, and provide a more detailed overview, and give a list of future sessions that you can book into your diary. All of the timings for the webcasts are AEST (Australia East Coast time).
See ** below for more details on how the webcasts work

** By running them as webcasts, our aim is to allow you to get the latest news, without travel costs, or event fees. And with all of the advantages of being able to watch an online webcast whilst also being able to do other things if necessary.

All of the free webcasts are one or  two hour sessions, and combine technical presentations and live demonstrations. The level of the content is suitable for IT teams in schools, TAFEs and universities, as well as for pre-sales consultants and technical consultants working within Microsoft’s education partners. There are some which are much more specifically tailored for developers, and I’ll highlight those.

You’ll need to register in advance, and you’ll then receive a Calendar note as well as info on how to join the Live Meeting online. All of the timings given are for Australia East Coast time.
