Since SmallWaterSupply.org launched in 2010 we have seen more and more training offered via free and for-a-fee webinars. These topical training events generally last an hour or two and are a very efficient way to deliver information.
This week the National Rural Water Association, in conjunction with their Water University online training program, announced Water Pro to Go. Water Pro is the association's annual technical conference for education in operations, management, boardsmanship and governance. This new "to Go" option will offer conference attendees a way to view concurrent session materials.
Perhaps more significantly, Water Pro to Go will allow those who cannot travel to the event to experience much of a full conference for free from the comfort of their desk chair. The online version of the conference will feature live streaming, recording sessions, live chats and a discussion forum.
Will you attend? Is online conference attendence the wave of the future... or can Internet-based networking ever measure up to the real deal?
