Asynchronous (Prerecorded) Talks

*If you are a student and you are required to be in attendance during synchronous (live) webinars, visit Instructions for Attending Synchronous (Live) Webinars.

Each speaker has prerecorded their talk ahead of time to limit technical difficulties. Once each video is available, it will be posted on this page and the speaker’s page.

Both the synchronous (live) and asynchronous (prerecorded) offerings from the NAMCS offer the same prerecorded presentation from the speaker.

The synchronous webinar will begin with a live introduction of the speaker and the speaker will be available to answer questions typed in the Q&A while the presentation is playing. In addition, the speaker will be available to answer questions after the presentation is finished playing. Please note that the live webinar address is not posted on the internet. Participating universities will make it available to students by email or through course management systems.
