To register for a specific webinar, follow these steps:

  1. Check the schedule at the bottom of this page.
  2. Click on the title of the webinar you want to attend. The section will expand.
  3. In the expanded section, click on the "Register for this webinar" link.
    Note: You must be logged into your MRU Google account to access the form.
  4. Fill out and submit the form. You will receive a copy of your responses via email so that you can easily track which webinars you have registered for.
  5. On the morning of the webinar, you will receive an email with the link to the online meeting room.

Important: Webinar registration is limited. Register early to avoid disappointment, but please only register for one session of any topic. (Please don't register for multiple sessions "just in case" your schedule changes. That takes spots away from other students.)

Proof of Participation

Do you need to provide proof of participation to an instructor for a particular course? Fill out the Reflection & Participation Form after each webinar you attend. (The link is provided during the webinar.) Once you complete and submit the form, you will receive a copy of your responses via email. You can forward the email to your instructor.
