What are the ‘rules’?

Q: Do I have to watch the online conference from the office only? What if I want to start to view on one computer and then want to finish up on my iPad at home? A: You can watch the sessions from home, the office or from your tablet, on a Mac or PC.

Q: Do I need the online conference group registration? A: If more than 1 person from your organization is watching the content we’re putting in the online conference, it makes a lot of sense to go for the group. It is less expensive than adding 2nd online conference archive single user account.

Q: Do I have a limit when I purchase the online conference group registration? A: We will provide access to login and password credentials that will allow up to 10 simultaneous logins. If you need more, let us know. We praise the idea of having viewing parties (even post ER&L) and encourage you to gather up and view together or make a choice to catch a session as a team. If you do gather up, tweet us a picture, please, and we’ll send you a little something!
