Shaw Academy strongly recommends that you try to attend webinars as student feedback is that they are fun, engaging and more enjoyable than watching recordings. You are also far more likely to complete the course as you will be sticking to a schedule. However, if you can’t attend webinar, of course watching the recordings is the next best thing.
During the webinars, you can ask questions and receive answers in real time. If you do have any outstanding questions after the webinar has finished you can simply email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Shaw Academy remains available as a point of support and assistance even after the webinars have concluded.
