Historic Use of MCE Conference Education-2020
Due the global pandemic ‘stay at home’ guidance, usage of on-demand resources of the MCE Conference Education program soared to historic levels in 2020!
Through 30 Novmber, course and playback webinar enrollments have increased by 21% to 1,704 (YTD Nov.).
Overall, conference education experiences (course enrollments + webinar attendees + workshop participants) have increased by 5% to 2,295. (YTD Nov).
Results are notable in light of the cancellation of many in-person conference workshops, plus suspension of webinars during Q2, greatly reducing experiences.
In the second half of 2020, many Sections conducted virtual workshops as a way to connect with organizers and providing opportunities to share best practices and local knowledge. (See more below)
