Testimonial

“In a time when so many of us are forcibly engaged in online education, it was great to hear from those who specialize in – and enjoy! – different aspects of online learning and brand practices. The volunteers were positive and helpful, the topics were relevant and current, the presenters were knowledgeable and personable. Attending virtually was almost entirely painless and the entire program was well executed! It was great and I will continue to share my experiences so more people can collaborate with OLC! Thank you!”
