FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event.

Keep in mind, many of the offerings found here in Connect Extension are brought to you by your colleagues across the system.

How do I know if it is an eXtension-hosted event?

eXtension posts publicly our events to two calendars - the eXtension Foundation Member Calendar and the Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Calendar.  All other events coming from across Cooperative Extension are posted to the Learn Calendar or to one of the regional calendars. All calendars populate to the same main calendar on Connect Extension. To tell the difference between what events are posted to what calendars easily, you'll see the name of the calendar posted above the title of the event if you scroll to the top.
