The “How-To” webinar series by GE Digital's Partner Novotek


This time inspired by all too familiar home schooling principles that those with kids have seen throughout the Corona spring. The series is called “How-To” and as the title implies it is all about learning something concrete and useful.


Each event is about one subject and consists of a number of smaller and shorter sessions on a specific topic. So you can decide what you want to learn more about and attend just that part. All the events are planned to last from morning to lunch and consists of approximately 5 to 8 sessions. You can see the topics covered below and more detailed information will follow shortly. Once you sign up for one event will you get the detailed schedule in the registration confirmation.
