If you have a computer with a microphone, you should be able to participate on Monday, March 14, 2011 at 7:00 pm, CDT. Join us now by clicking on this link.
  2. "Copyright Clarity and Fair Use for Digital Learning", presented by Renee Hobbs, author of Copyright Clarity, Kristin Hokanson and myself.
