We encourage you to submit a proposal for your webinar topic here. If your webinar proposal gets approved, you will be contacted by a Sloan-C staff for scheduling and production details.

The live events are conducted in Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate Live!) and a training session for the presenter can be scheduled.

Webinar presenters are requested to submit their PowerPoint presentation for the webinar at least two weeks prior to the date of the live event, and a dry-run will be scheduled seven to ten days before the webinar.

Live events are usually scheduled on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 2-3:30 PM Eastern Time with some flexibility based on the presenter’s availability.
