The online conferencing system, Blackboard Ultra, used for the Webinar Series provides the most accessible conferencing and collaboration experience possible. Individuals can participate in a fully-accessible, online conference from anywhere that they can access the internet.

Engage with the material and your instructor. Thanks to robust collaboration and conference tools, everyone feels like they're in the same room together, regardless of their location or device. If you plan to log into the on-line webinar system to view the presentation, listen to audio, chat, access captioning and Video Sign Language Interpreter (if provided) and/or submit questions it is important that you use a hard-wired (Ethernet) connection, if available.
