Please note that we have switched our hosting service for recorded webinars through 2013.
This will mean several things. First, our webinars pre-2014 will be downloadable as .wmv files, which may be played on Macs using a program such as VLC Media Player. PC users will no longer need a special "GoToMeeting" codec which was required on some computers. These files will unfortunately also be substantially larger, and may take longer to download on slower internet connections.
