78RPM, yes the Focus on Fundamentals courses will be archived, similar to the Digi-Key CEC courses. You access the archive just like you access those longer courses: from the course series calendar page.

I agree with Ann. This is a good forum. And after a while you learn that this forum has a culture of civility and friendly discussion between participants.

Question for Ann: The live chat is great. Review is good, too.  Will this webinar be archived? How can we access it later for review?

Trenth, glad you fixed the text wrap problem.
This is an online audio-plus-PDF-presentation course, not a webinar. But both are still very popular formats, and that's especially true of Design News' online courses and webinars. Both couldn't be done without the internet, so I'm not sure what you meant there.
Both of these formats give everyone access to experts in certain subjects, and presentations that they would otherwise have to do a lot of traveling to be able to view. Design News' online courses and webinars have a chat function, and that means you get to see answers to questions others ask that you might not have thought of.
Check it out next week and see what you think.

Why, with the internet are we scheduling webinares? We can ask question via this format or emails.

 

Oh well, different strikes...

Thanks, Lou. That question will probably be on many people's minds.

Ann, that is one I will try to attend.  Not only is the material important, but the quality.  I talked to a guy whose distributor sold him on some metal bearings from a different supplier.  I think they were cheaper.  The quality was so bad that he had many failures and lost some customers.  I will be interested to see how quality issues are addressed.
