CAEP/TAP announced a new Professional Development opportunity for next week that was not already on our calendar. On November 5, OTAN will begin a 3-part series “Easy Projects with Microsoft Office”. The webinar’s information is posted on our calendar along with a functional link to the registration page.
We are still working on the instructions to the new calendar. New features are being “discovered” frequently. Those will be sent out as soon as they are complete and accurate.
The Wakelet Professional Development (PD) event for November 6 has been cancelled. The event has been removed from our calendar.
The “Google Series: 1,2 and 3” (PD) event has been removed from the calendar because enrollment is limited to the hosting agency according to OTAN.
Nick has announced that the new calendar is fully functional and up-to-date with all PD events transferred from the old calendar. Instructions for how to use the new calendar and its features will be sent out later this week. For now you can click on any event on the calendar to access its description and registration link.
CAEP/TAP announced new PD events for this week and next that were not already posted on the old calendar. On October 30 the OTAN Webinar “OERs for Adult Education” is scheduled.
OTAN is presenting a three part series on Microsoft Office. The webinars will occur on November 3, 5 and 10. The November 3 and 5 webinars have been posted on the calendar.

OTAN is presenting “Using Wakelet for Remote Instruction” on November 6.
Also on November 6, OTAN has scheduled a Virtual Workshop covering “Google Series: 1, 2, 3”, although this may be a restricted PD event for a specific agency only. The agency is not specified, so when additional information is available, it will be posted here. If necessary, the event will be deleted from our calendar if our schools are not eligible to register.
Nick Throlson has informed us that the new version of the calendar is available for you to use. The Professional Development events and deliverables for this week, and next, are up to date and available to view.
Choosing events on the calendar by type still has a bit of work to be done by Nick, but I will update you when that is ready and include instructions for you to refer to as you gain experience with the new features.
