LearningTimes is pleased to sponsor and help produce the American Alliance of Museums Professional Development Live Webinar Series. Below are answers to frequently asked questions about the series. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions. We look forward to seeing you, live online.
Is there a physical venue for the Alliance Live Webinar Series?
Nope! The Live Webinar Series takes place entirely over the Internet. You attend from any web connection, interacting with speakers and colleagues in a lively and meaningful manner – from anywhere.
What can I expect during an Alliance Live Webinar?
During each Alliance Live Webinar, you will hear and interact with our distinguished panelists and colleagues from across the museum community. Each online seminar includes opportunities to ask panelists questions in real time, and share experiences, resources and ideas with other participating colleagues.
With the support of partners at LearningTimes, webinar facilitators will engage the panelists and participants alike in interactive activities, discussions, polls and other interactive exercises that maximize engagement and the sharing of knowledge that can be put to use at your museum immediately.
If I can’t attend the live sessions, is it still worth my while participating?
Without a doubt! The live sessions are one part of the overall experience. We record all of the webinars, which means you can access the recording at a later date. You may even want to invite a group of colleagues to share the learning experience with you.
What are the basic technical requirements to participate?
- A PC or Mac (OS X 10.2 or higher) computer with a standard Internet connection (56 kbps or higher)
- The free Flash Player 10 or higher
- Speakers or headphones connected to your computer

The Alliance Live Webinars do not require participants to have microphones or cameras. You do need speakers or headphones, however, to hear the webinar panelists.

Will the events be recorded?
