On line meetings allow coordinators to invite guest speakers. For speakers/presenters who are needing a refresher for setting up their PowerPoint presentations or live streaming a video, curriculum offers step by step instructions in both Power Point and Word docx. Instructions include both Chrome and Fire Fox browsers.
When PLATO courses went to the online format during the pandemic, two of them started recording their outside speakers. These recorded sessions are available to PLATO members. Both courses---Whither the State coordinated by Dennis Dresang, and Pathways to Sustainability coordinated by Richard Steeves-- are among our popular courses. The guest speakers have dealt with engaging current topics. Now that the Spring semester is winding down, members can continue their on-line PLATO learning with these videos.
Pathways to Sustainability focuses on the challenges we face as we adapt to a sustainable society. Some of the topics in the recordings include:
Whither the State discusses topics that will affect Wisconsin and the United States in the coming years. Here is a sampling of the recorded sessions.
There are two ways to access these recorded course sessions.
If you want to access only the list of course recordings from the two highlighted courses above, you can go to the COURSES page of the website. There you will find the link Video Recorded Courses under the left hand column titled TOPICS 2021
If you want to access all PLATO recorded material (courses and lectures) you will go to the Homepage of the website. There, you can click on the tab, PAST RECORDINGS in the blue bar across the top of the page.
Either way you will be able to listen to some important speakers and topics which affect us all.
