We will use Blackboard Collaborate for this presentation.  If you are unable to make the live presentation, an archived version will be available for 60 days until Sept. 7, 2013.  You and any member of your staff are free to access to the archive — note that ITC owns the copyright for these Webinars so we appreciate your not making or storing any copies.

Register online at http://www.itcnetwork.org/webinars.html.  Registration costs only $50 per Webinar, 20 for $900 ($45 each), or all 36 calls for $1,620 ($45 each). These fees are double for non-ITC members. The cost is the same to access the live or archived versions. Choose any of the presentations we have scheduled so far, and carry over a credit for what remains, to take advantage of the 20 Webinar package. A big thank you goes to Anne Arundel Community College for contributing the use of their Blackboard Collaborate Web platform to us so we can keep our costs down!

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Minnesota National Guard are partners in veterans reintegration programming. Research has confirmed that returning veterans often face difficult reintegration issues as they attempt to attend college and re-enter the workforce. These challenges can affect whether these very capable students are ultimately able to succeed in college. By providing a more veteran-friendly campus, colleges can help service members resolve the obstacles they face and help boost their overall student success and retention rates. Online services can play a major role in helping service members, veterans and their families succeed in higher education, whether they are online or residential students.
