ERDAS opens webinar archives

There have been several companies moving to the webinar route over the last year. These are great ways for users to get to know the nooks and crannies of products, geospatial or not, and it allows for some level of interaction with the person leading the webinar. The downside is that they aren’t always convenient to fit in your schedule, no matter how many times a given webinar is offered. Perhaps the most useful thing about a webinar is that it can be tossed online afterward for any and all who missed the original or just missed a point. ERDAS has gotten around to archiving their webinars for the general public. What is more, they seem to be rolling them out quickly so you don’t have to wait a month or more if you missed the live webinar. And…AND…you can take it with you when you download the webinar and run it on your laptop though you will need the WebEx ARF player to view the file, so no viewing on your personal media player of choice.
