August 30 WEBINAR: Initiating Envision Use for Organizational and Project Readiness

This course’s two modules tackle how Envision can positively transform organizational and project practices.

Date: August 30, 2023
Time: 2– 4 PM ET

The first, “Initiate Envision for Organizational Readiness,” focuses on looking inward, and using a wealth of Envision resources to build sustainable practices within organizations and relevant stakeholders. The second, “Preparing for Project Success,” takes the multidisciplinary foundation set and focuses on outcomes, using verified project examples as a roadmap.

Closed Captioning

ISI has expanded its closed captioning to now include the recorded webinars. The feature has been in place for the live versions of webinars via the Zoom platform, as well as in any sections of new asynchronous courses that have voice narration.

Recorded webinars have not until this point been able to carry the zoom captioning because of the way they were previously edited.

With the workaround that we were able to implement for this issue, we’re pleased to report that the recorded webinars will have closed-captioning moving forward. Full credit to ISI’s Senior Learning Technologist, Ted Marcelo!
