What is the difference between RRCNA webinars and webcasts?
RRCNA webinars are live presentations that include opportunity for questions and answers. RRCNA webcasts on demand are prerecorded and sent as streaming video to your computer. Some webcast presentations were broadcast earlier as webinars, and some are edited conference presentations by noted speakers.
Can more than one person attend for a single registration fee?
Registration is based on your computer address. That means more than one person can participate during a webinar or webcast. In many schools, colleagues watch on a single computer and then discuss content.
Can more than one certificate of attendance be issued?
Certificates of attendance can be downloaded and printed for anyone who attends an RRCNA webinar or webcast.
Why do webcasts sometimes hesitate or stop while I’m watching?
On-demand webcasts are prerecorded and are sent to you as streaming video. Usually if a video stops or stutters it is because more information is downloading and will resume playing shortly. Helpful tips are included on each individual webcast description page.
Webinars produced as part of the Early Literacy Intervention initiative with the U.S. Department of Education are also available for on-demand viewing at no charge.
Live webinars and on-demand webcasts provide low-cost, high-quality content for individual learning or small groups. Reading Recovery and early literacy topics are added throughout the year, so check back often.

What Counts as Evidence?
Equipment needsA computer with a broadband Internet connection such as DSL, cable, or T1 line is required. Dial-up connections are slower and do not have enough bandwidth to reliably send streaming video.
- For live webinars, the audio comes through a phone line so you will need a speakerphone or a phone with a hands-free option. If you are watching as a group, please be sure your speakerphone volume is sufficient for everyone to hear.
- For on-demand webcasts, audio and video are both delivered by computer so you do not need a separate phone line. Be sure to test your computer speaker volume prior to watching the webcast.
