Spring 2014 UMM Tech Hangouts On Air

Please plan to join us online for this Spring’s “Tech Hangouts OnAir!”  The format for this 4-part series is that the workshops will be held online and participants attend from their own desks.  Each session will be recorded to ensure that more people will be able to take advantage of these sessions.

We are looking for volunteers to “Hangout” live with the session presenters.  If you are willing to participate in this way, please contact Pam Gades and let her know.  As these sessions are also being recorded and will be available for anyone from UMM to view the recordings via YouTube, she will need your permission to share the recordings online after the session as well.
