Guest Post: Anytime Training

Intro: Hi, I’m Jean Anderson (aka the PandaLibrarian). I’m the CE Coordinator at SCLS and I’ve worked at SCLS since 2007!

Every year, SCLS offers Continuing Education programs to our libraries (over 50 this year). Some are in person, some are live streamed to your desktop (Library Learning Network programs), and some are delivered to you via webinar. What do you do if you want to attend a program but can’t for one reason or another?

Many, but not all, of our programs are available in some recorded format. The Library Learning Network programs are available on DVD a few weeks after the program airs. We don’t catalog these in LINKcat, so you need to request them using this form. Some of our presenters allow us to record their in-person programs. Again, we don’t catalog these (we don’t have permission to distribute them beyond our member libraries) so use the same form to request these DVDs.

What about the rest of the programs – the ones we’re using GoToWebinar to deliver to your desktop?Beach We’ve been recording them all year long and they’re available for you to watch anytime, day or night, at work or in your pjs, as long as you have an Internet connection. You can find these posted on the Past Program blog along with any handouts, slides, or other information available. The recording is usually available within 24-48 hours of the original presentation. So far this year, we have 23 recorded programs available for you to watch at your convenience. We use Blip.tv to host these programs and you can find the SCLS Channel at sclsce.blip.tv.

Looking for something prior to 2009? Check out the Past Program listing for recordings, slides, and other handouts.

Looking for other CE Opportunities? Check out Know More, where I post information about other CE programs, webinars, and conferences.

Interesting statistic – the program with the most number of views since it aired in March is the CCBC program, Great New Books for Younger Children – it’s been watched 327 times!

If you’re a director and are looking for CE hours – watching these recordings counts!
