  • Arnet: My name is Arnet Tkachuk, Business Analyst at Lambda solutions located in Sunny Vancouver.
    Before introducing my lovely co-host, I just want to go over some basic tips to make this webinar as beneficial for you as possible.
    We will only take 45 minutes to present this webinar, including Q&A, but will be available for the entire 60 minutes if anyone has specific questions.
    You will notice an “Audio” button on the top center of your screen which will enable audio.
    For everyone’s best experience I will go ahead and mute this webinar. If you do have a question you can use the Chat box option on the lower left hand of your screen; you can also “raise your hand” if you experience any technical issues, we will do our best to assist you.
    As with all our webinars, everyone will be emailed a recording of today’s presentation within in a couple of days
    To keep things interesting, we have included a few live polls that you can participate in. And the goal of these polls is get idea of what is priority for our clients and in return how we can best provide them service.
    This webinar is designed for anyone leading or managing eLearning programs, or System Administrators involved with LMS.

    Without further ado, I would like to introduce Lori Davies.
