Viewers will be able to watch any or all of the individual 90-minute presentations throughout the week. The format also allows for viewers to submit questions for presenters and each viewer can access speaker slides in advance. Following the live presentations, an edited version of each will be prepared in following weeks and remain available for viewing on the web.
The webinar was organized and arranged through a partnership involving the University of Missouri, the State University System of Florida, and the National Association of College and University Business Officers. The entire series will be offered free, thanks to participation by the Florida High Tech Corridor Council, an economic development initiative of the State University System of Florida. In addition, Florida Lambda Rail is participating by webcasting the series throughout Florida universities on its high speed system.
