The Ashbrook Center’s online courses and webinars are conducted using WebEx Training Center. Participation in a WebEx Training Center session does not require any special equipment or software. If you have a broadband internet connection and an ordinary web browser, you can listen in on an online conference. With a web camera and a headset or earbuds with inline microphone (recommended) you can participate fully in an online conference.
