Webinars

In today's under-resourced work environment, it can be very difficult for professionals to make the time to attend live events, let alone fund the cost.

At the same time, the world of information work changes constantly, with the application of technology to every new tool and to research, information, content or sharing.

Jinfo's practical and targeted Webinars bring quality professional development to your desktop, as part of your Jinfo Subscription. Our unique expertise in distance education ensures that these sessions provide you with new tools and knowledge you can apply immediately.
