EDUCATIONAL SERVICES COURSES
The Educational Services Courses have limited
seating, and require pre-registration in order to reserve an available seat and
equipment. User attendees may register for a maximum of two Educational Services
courses. (Emerson attendees please hold back from registering
for these courses, we would like to leave them open for users only) To
pre-register for these courses, navigate to the course in the agenda that you
wish to enroll, and add it into your schedule under "My Schedule". The scheduler
then adds you to the course register, and automatically makes seating
availability adjustments. (The scheduler will advise you if seating for a course
is full.) While we have attempted to size the rooms to meet the anticipated
attendance and demand for all sessions, there may be sessions where attendance
exceeds the maximum seating. Should attendance exceed maximum room occupancy, as
regulated by fire code, the Room Facilitator will try to accommodate Users first
and Emerson attendees second.
For your and others' safety, please
observe any instructions issued to ensure safe room occupancy.
Laptop PCs and printers will be available in the Cyber Café to revise and print
your personal schedules. Each attendee will receive a "Pocket
Guide" listing all sessions in the personal scheduler.
